I like runts. And mambas. And sour patch kids. I’m sorry.

I am dead tired.

But feeling good about life.

I also feel good about John Cusick and this interview.

He really does mean what he says and he says good good things.

I don’t have enough energy to get into my underwear situation like I had hoped. Or my marriage advice–because I have a lot. Instead I am going to encourage you all to go to the store and buy your favorite childhood candy and then set it up, right by your computer, eat a little, eat some more, and then write.

Write write write. That’s my goal. to just write without worrying about the end. Whether it will be good. Whether it fits with other things I”ve written. Whether it’s YA or MG or PG. Just write. And have fun. And maybe color. I might get out my crayons and color and write and eat candy.

We all should. Nerds and gobstoppers baby.

    sour patch kids are my favorite. and i need to write without thinking about the end. watercolor colored pencils are so much fun to color with. we just got them for christmas. try them out!

  2. Okay. I have junior mints and I’m not afraid to use them. And I wouldn’t mind a pep-talk like this everyday. Thanks, Ann Dee!

    Doing it as I type. Okay, so I’m cheating just a bit by being online, oh well, I’m rewarding my inner child for sitting here and writing for the last 5 hours today–a marathon in my jam-packed life. Thank heaven for sick little girls who can’t go to school forcing mom to stay home from work. Oh, and for me… its Marshmallow Matey’s as the treat du juor.
