The (Cyber) Bag of Weasels

bread and puppet

"About as much fun as a bag of weasels"...when I first saw this Irish adage, it made me think of the life of a writer: sometimes perilous, sometimes painful, certainly interesting. My paper journal has always been called "The Bag of Weasels." This is the Bag of Weasels' online home.

It's 5 PM ...

Well, I'm starting to get a little shaky, so I think it's time to break for supper. Writing requires eating for two: me and the muses. I'd forgotten how strenuous it is. (I know. I talk like I haven't written in years. Well, I haven't written intensely and regularly in years. An hour here and there on a story doesn't count.)

Anyway, as of 5 PM, I have roughly 6,800 words on my story. I've been writing for nine hours now, so I'm more than a third there. Yippee! And, to quote Monty Python, "I'm not dead yet." Once I have something to eat, I think I'll be suitably spunky once again to make it to my 15,000-word goal and maybe then some!

Bobby's finishing up some stuff outside (he just visited my window with Rose), then we're off to supper. Right now, I am engaging in an extensive debate with myself about whether going to El Rodeo requires me to put on a bra. Just imagine what I'll be thinking about come 5 AM!

Thank you to everyone for the comments thus far--I'm taking occasional breaks to read them and very much appreciative!

  • Hope dinner was good. You're doing awesome!

    (Also, loving the bra debate. I only wear one if I'm leaving the house. I'm more comfortable with them off.)
  • You can totally do this!!! If all else fails, make it rain, or make someone split their pants, or something - they are yours to do with as you will!!!

    I just knocked out 2K, so I'm still behind, but not as badly as I was a few hours ago!
  • it's very late and time for you to indulge in a past-midnight snack! Go Dawn Go!!! I didn't indulge in this - no inspiration at the moment - but you'll do it ...you have the drive to succeed! I look forward to hearing about the story later - after you get some rest.

  • (no subject) - satismagic
  • Marvellous! Glad you're loving this as well as doing a wonderful job, which I was already sure you would! All the best for the coming hours (whatever time it is over there)!
