"A writing community based on encouragement and cooperation." PoMo Golightly’s idea is genius. If interest exists, she’ll pair writers up, and we’ll encourage each other over the ether, with perhaps a small reward in the end? A yarn swap, perhaps? I’m in, and if you’re a writer who likes the idea, go drop her a comment.
Me: Fighting a migraine which is most likely hormonal, and a mood, which I am attributing to post-book-completion let-down. Of course, I have two other books in the works, either of which I’d love to swing into, but there’s a but. A friend would like to write a script with me. It IS Scriptfrenzy month, after all, and I’d love the challenge. But it’s a HUGE challenge — the subject matter is not what I usually go for, and I’ve never written a script. And I think he has high regard for my writing talent, much of which might be misplaced in this context. I think I’m going to have a meeting with him, to see if it’s too completely ridiculous for me to consider, in which case I’ll tell him, straight up, no dice. But I find myself drawn to it like I was drawn to the marathon — such a crazy thing to want to do, so difficult, BRING IT ON — then I’ll give it a shot.
Which puts me in a mood. It’s not even a bad mood, especially since I called in sick with migraine. It’s just an… itchy, angsty, get-up-and-move mood. A dangerous mood. I’m trying to stay very still and sit with it. I’ve reread most of Steven King’s On Writing yesterday and today (great book, even though I’m not a fan of his fiction), and now I will watch TV and finish up that lacy sweater. Yes.
