Thread: What Are You Doing?

  1. #121


    Trying not to barf because my throat is so swollen and sore that it's triggering my gag reflex. Also, writing another "God the Father" flashback. Need to get some proper clothes on and walk the dog.

    Petting my cat with one hand, typing with the other. Drinking good coffee.

    Just drank some Taster's Choice and now checking all emails for review requests. Afterward, I'll be revising the first chapters of my YA dystopian for a better, hopefully, super hook.

    I threw a glance at humankind and saw them treacherous and feeble.
    Severe judges, cruel, unkind and fools who are always close to evil.
    Before their frightful, anxious mob, indifferent hate forever rages.
    Not learnt the lessons from the ages!

    Just crawled out of bed. Going to write a new short story today and hopefully finish the first draft in one sitting. Also want to do some drawing and need to apply for jobs again. Busy day!

    Trying to figure out how to fix a short I'm working on, scrolling through these forums, and getting the meanest foot cramp of my life. Writing that last sentence, I'm now wondering if I should've applied the oxford comma. Thoughts?

    It takes a lot of training and muscle memory. And, of course, a very large mug handle.

    I'm waiting for the rain to stop so I can risk my life pulling down 12 foot high hop bines. All twisted around the trellis. If you don't hear from me later, it'll be because my wife is bringing the laptop to the hospital.

    I just re-read a short-short story I wrote last week, one last looking over before submitting it to a contest. I don't know how it turned so stupid. The last time I read it, I thought it was pretty good. Now I have to start over again.

    Oh, god I hate that. It's like some edit demons come in and change our poised, considered, controlled prose:

    Mrs. Dalloway said she'd buy the flowers herself.
    into something the cat could type with its elbows:
