I dearly love the irreverence of someecards.com and sometimes they say things that are just spot on.
While weaning myself off this last drug trial that didn't help me at all, I've dealt with worse insomnia than I normally do. And I don't want to use the sleeping pills I have because why add one more chemical when I'm trying to get OFF one?
I have some of my best ideas while driving (I really need to invest in a voice recorder) and at night when I'm trying to sleep (and I've tried writing down notes but like that one Seinfeld episode -- the joke makes no sense when I wake up.
One thing I do know -- I'm trying to figure out what to do next. I've been dawdling on writing the memoirs because some parts are painful, some parts are shocking (and I can't help but wonder, "what will they THINK?", and parts need to be checked, Tom-Clancy-like, to make sure I'm not talking about something that *I* think is innocuous but which really is still under Top Secret clearance.
I absolutely love to write, but do I have the gift that goes beyond blogging that can move into a book? Most of you know about The Bloggess and her new memoirs book "Let's Pretend This Never Happened" that is topping the charts. Do I have a voice that translates (without quite so many swear words?)
The eBook went well (thank you thank you thank you -- and if you haven't been bored of my shilling it, it's in the right hand column of the blog) but it's not quite time for another blog prompts book (but there WILL be one). I like writing tutorials so writing beading books is awesome, yet there's all those anecdotes that pop up in the car and at 3am.
In the meantime -- feel free to throw a topic at me and I'll see if it meshes with a thought that's been needing that kick in the pants to break free.
Going to skip that nap today.
