Wondering: Why summer is passing so quickly.
Reading: Gotham by Gaslight: A Tale of the Batman, wherein a Victorian-era Batman hunts down Jack the Ripper. I hope I’m not the only one who thinks this is begging to be made into a series on Netflix
Eating: Anything I can fit in my mouth, but mainly salmon cream cheese. There can never be too much salmon cream cheese.
Drinking: Gallons of tea. My favorites are Country Peach Passion and Lemon Zinger.
Watching: Way too much Netflix. My sister and I just got into Daredevil.
Writing: First drafts. Terrible, horrible, open-the-sewage-pipe-of-my-unfiltered-mind-and-let-it-spew-all-over-the-page first drafts. And it’s the most fun I’ve had writing in a long time.
Buying: A new dress. I don’t think anybody feels good about themselves after clothes shopping. It ain’t for the faint of heart.
Also Reading: The Bloody Jack series.
Waiting: For cooler weather.
Knowing: I need to get outside more often. I probably won’t, but I should.
Starting: To read more comics and graphic novels. It’s such a different experience from reading a “normal” book and I love it!
Loving: Red nail polish, Microsoft Word, and flip-flops.

Oh my goodness, I feel you so much on the "wondering why summer is passing so quickly" thing. Time is just dashing past me with this huge grin on its face. And ooh, I totally need to get more into tea—I adore it, but I feel like I'm not drinking it enough.ReplyDelete
Also, not sure if you saw this, but I tagged you for the 777 Challenge! If you end up deciding to do it, have fun :)
I feel like I start summer with the best intentions--I'm going to do this and this and this and be super productive--but I always end up wasting most of my time. There's still plenty to enjoy about summer, though--especially tea :)Delete
The word vomit of a first draft is strangely cathartic. I think revisions are more rewarding (however difficult!) but a first draft feels like stretching my writerly wings. And argh, like Christina, I haven't been drinking enough tea -- it's far too hot in summer and cold tea is just awkward sometimes.ReplyDelete
I actually prefer first drafting to editing (though editing is, in a way, more rewarding) just because there's no pressure to write well--it's all about getting the story down on paper. Tea is always good, but you're right--there've been a few days when it's just too hot to drink anything but ice water.Delete
Ugh, I know. Summer just went so fast! It's so panic-making. Salmon cream cheese...? That is not something I have heard of, but I guess if you're eating it lots you like it, and that is good. I also want cooler weather, and to get outside, but I haven't done it. Also, hooray for red nail polish, Word, and flip flops!ReplyDelete
You've never heard of salmon cream cheese? Get thee to the grocery store right away, because it's delicious :) (If you like salmon, that is.) I adore flip flops and wish I could wear them all the time, but I'm also starting to miss fall. There's something about cooler weather that makes me feel more energized and productive.Delete
