MMWUC for September 10, 2007

EXERCISE: "Close your eyes, take a deep breath, and relax. For the next ten minutes, write from the protagonists POV, 'The enemy approached...'." The students stared at the loudspeaker where moments before Michael Jackson had been crooning to some rat named Ben. The voice had not preambled his instructions for the Monday morning writing exercise. He merely stated what needed to be done. "Just do it!" the voice commanded and the students focused on their work. "Some days," muttered one student to no one in particular, not lifting her head up. "Some days that's all you need to do. You just need to put your butt in the seat and just do it."

MUSINGS: If all the "readers" for my various novels had bought my novels, I'd be on someone's best seller's list today. If a frog had wings, he wouldn't bump his ass so much. Those two ideas have the same results...wishful thinking. Time to put forth effort into the next book, learn from the past, and look forward to success.
Billions of turkeys gathered on the plains of gravy. Though most would be dead by the end of the day, they knew there weren't enough bullets to kill them all. "Victory will be ours," gobbled General Tom. They turned as one and headed off to their destiny, except for the chickens.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you and for those turkeys on the gravy plains. :)
