Not Feeling So Great Today

Going to give you some writing questions to ask yourself–

Why are you writing?
What motivates this particular book?
If you could change one thing about you as a writer, what would it be? I think I’ve asked this before, but it’s worth asking again.
Where is my hairbrush?
What are your goals for being a writer?
If you could change one thing about your family that had to do with your writing, what would it be?
Why don’t people answer their cell phones–don’t they know how important my phone call is?
What does your main character REALLY want?
How do you keep her from getting it?
Does she get what she wants by the end of the book?
What do you think of Chris Crowe as a bloggy addition?
Please remember, Ann Dee and I are the bosses. I’m just saying.
If you could change one thing about Chris Crowe what would it be?
(Chris was my LDS bishop for about 25 minutes. He ran off to England when my girls and I moved into the ward.)
And finally–how does one get rid of a stress migraine?

  1. Why are you writing? I can’t sleep.
    What motivates this particular book? I wanna write something my kids can read.
    If you could change one thing about you as a writer, what would it be? I would be Carol.
    Where is my hairbrush? Under my 5-year-old’s bed, along with the rest of the universe.
    What are your goals for being a writer? Goals shmoals.
    If you could change one thing about your family that had to do with your writing, what would it be? I’d find a more reasonable hobby. Alas, I’m addicted.
    Why don’t people answer their cell phones–don’t they know how important my phone call is? Fools. Call me, I will answer.
    What does your main character REALLY want? Good question.
    How do you keep her from getting it? Fantastical creatures, selfish deities, and a loin cloth.
    Does she get what she wants by the end of the book? Yes, but not in the way he expected.
    What do you think of Chris Crowe as a bloggy addition? Curious how he will handle the estrogen.
    If you could change one thing about Chris Crowe what would it be? Teach him to not be so gullible toward spam emails.
    And finally–how does one get rid of a stress migraine? I’ll say a prayer for you.

  2. Why are you writing? Is there a choice?
    What motivates this particular book? A tear in the fabric of space and time and cause I thought of it…all by myself.
    If you could change one thing about you as a writer, what would it be? To write it perfectly the first time.
    Where is my hairbrush? Probably with mine. I just decided to quite brushing my hair. Dreads are coming back in.
    What are your goals for being a writer? To write a good book. Just one. More than one would be nice…but I’ll start with one.
    If you could change one thing about your family that had to do with your writing, what would it be? They’d be quiet in that witching hour from 3 pm to dinner.
    Why don’t people answer their cell phones–don’t they know how important my call is? I don’t know. What did we do before cell phones and we couldn’t get a hold of a person immediately? I don’t even remember.
    What does your main character REALLY want? What she can’t have.
    How do you keep her from getting it? Capture and isolation.
    Does she get what she wants by the end of the book? Yes.
    What do you think of Chris Crowe as a bloggy addition? Not sure. I don’t know him. It will be strange to have a male gender type around here.
    If you could change one thing about CC what would it be? I think it would be neat if he would publish a paranormal fantasy/romance. Wouldn’t it?
    And finally-how does one get rid of a stress migraine? Find your brush.

    Whew. That was a great procrastination exercise.

  3. Chris would be great!

    Have you tried a chiropractor? A friend in my ward finally found one that helped her. Her migraines are almost nonresistant now. Maybe its not really stress, maybe its too many brains in there, making things uncomfortable.
