So here's my summer revision smackdown progress. Or this might be easier to read:
It was such a nice day I took my SRS goals outside with me and my writing coach Linus.
Sometimes I like to use a white board to mix things up.
Oh the stress of that blank page.
So first I tried to loosen up with some art.
My shadow self-portrait.
I'm a writer, not an artist. Black sheep in my family.
Then I went to work loosey goosey. Great writing session thanks to my Summer Revision Smackdown buddies and that licorice WHERPLASH! It's a great kick in the rump and I think it is really motivating me and helping me get my butt in the chair, wherever that chair may be.
My other inspiration today came from my dad's post about how the journey is the destination (http://richardjessewatson.blogspot.com/2009/06/are-we-there-yet.html) and also with Kirby's revision tips to go for a walk and then get your butt in the chair (http://cuppajolie.blogspot.com/2009/06/srs-lash-flash-kirby-larson.html).
You know what I realized?
That sometimes I make writing all formal and uptight. But when I chill out a little and customize it to me and my quirks, it becomes fun (God forbid). And when that happens my big butch perfectionist bully shuts up and glares with her arms crossed. But SHUTS UP! Hallelujah. And then my writing relaxes too.
The journey is the destination. Time to enjoy the journey and the love of writing. My way.
And so we soaked ourselves with the hose and I put my butt in the chair. And Linus murdered our neighbor's dog's stuffed animals.
