This is the SOUND of my SOUL.

So yesterday was spent in an excellent way.  I was able to start New Story Idea, which was totally awesome.  I locked myself down in the basement like Sloth (Baby Ruth??) and started typing typing typing.  I'm doing a 30 day trial of Scrivener to see how I feel about it, and so far... I kind of love it to bits.  I know it's definitely a love it/hate it piece between writers, but I'm falling on the Love It side.  I understand the Hate Its, though.

ANYWAY, after a while, Hubs wanted to go run on the nice afternoon, so I took a break to hang out with the Mutt and watch some TV.  While watching TV, this commercial for the Chevy Malibu came on (note: for fans of early seasons of Sex and the City, please see backseat for SKIPPER, YO.)

I love this song, and I also love to belt it out.

After a while, I decide to let Mutt outside for a little run around the backyard.  It should be noted that, since I had been writing all day prior to this, I was wearing my glasses, purple striped capri jammie pants, a Stars Hollow hooded sweatshirt, a Duran Duran t-shirt, and neon blue house slippers I got for a dollar at IKEA.  While unlocking the door, I start singing to the dog, something I often do.  Of course, I'm belting out the lyrics "Why do I find it hard to write the next line?/Oh, I want the truth to be saaaaaaaaid" when I whip the door open and shimmy out onto our porch...

Where I find our next door neighbor doing yard work and looking at me as though I'm wearing my jammies at 4 pm singing "True" by Spandau Ballet at the top of my lungs in broad daylight.

In general, I managed to be Liz Lemon, Lorelai Gilmore, and Jess Day all in one fell swoop.  Who's that girl?  Who's that girl?

It's me.


  1. BWAHAHAHA. I love it.

    Also: I am firmly pro-Scrivener. So pumped you're trying it! (I'm kind of a Scrivener evangelist, actually... yeah, pretend that's a thing.)

    Oh, also, I just spent the last month being totally swamped and couldn't find the time to do a good job of commenting on your 30 day book challenge, but I wanted to let you know that I REALLY enjoyed it! :)

  2. My neighbors are well versed in Lola-the-weird-writer-wears-her-PJs-ALL-THE-TIME-in-her-yard fashions.

    Also, I love G.G. and own a Stars Hollow t-shirt and a Faux Poe Foe t-shirt. :) GG's one of my all-time favorite TV shows.

    I have had Scrivener since it first came out, but, it's not very user friendly, and I'm tech-challanged, thus, I really don't use it. I *want* to use it. I understand all its benefits...ALL my writer friends love it and try to persuade me to give it another go, under their tutelage, but I'm always in the middle of a project, already in word.doc, and just never want to take the time to fiddle with it.

    Lastly, thanks for stopping by my blog. :)
