So, I have been tagged by the lovely Lynn Kelley, with the fill-in-the-blank-statement, 'writing is like...'
Writing is like a Rube Goldberg Machine. You know, where you draw out a rough draft, which ends up looking nothing like your final product. You painstakingly put together all the parts, only to find out that the thing doesn't work. 18 drafts, *cough*, tries later, tweaking all the while, the thing still doesn't work.
Maybe because you relied on a kitten to start the whole thing off, and she's pretty fickle. The only time that she actually started the chain effect was when the camera wasn't ready, and nobody was watching. And then there was the time that the other cat destroyed the whole thing, by sauntering through.
Finally, after getting so frustrated that it is only by sheer will that you are setting up those ridiculously sensitive dominoes the 52nd time, the whole thing works.
And then you start to think of the next machine.
Can you tell what I have been doing with all my time? End of year science projects rock. Sort of. I would have included the video if I knew how to upload that kind of thing to the web. Maybe someone will tell me how.
Anyway, please stop by Lynn's blog and check her out. She's new to blogging, and she's sweet and kind and welcoming.
And, instead of tagging someone, I thought I would ask you all, what is writing like for you? What have you been doing in your real life which reminds you of writing?
