Hey all! I hope you're having a marvelous Friday! First off. . .did how do you like the changes on the blog? I know, it's totally different. I promise, It's still the same blog! I seriously was planning on just changing the background, but it wasn't working. So my sister and I stayed up wayyy too late Tuesday night re-designing everything. We were up so late we ended up heating up a pizza and grabbing some iced tea.
It may or may not have been up till past midnight.. But we had fun. And I totally blame her for how the blog looks. ;)
Okay, moving on . . . I really, really wanted to do a post about writing today. I mean, the name of the blog is "Whimsical Writings".
I was scrolling through my pinterest boards the other day, and it struck me as how all these wonderful pictures, that describe my writing so well, would make a wonderful blog post.
This had nothing to do with the fact that I didn't have the time I would need to devote to an honest-to-goodness writing post. So, without further ado, here is a walk through my writing journey (according to pinterest).
|Ahh, yes. The great story idea! Only. .. how does it start?|
|Augh, finally got past that beginning. Now for that wonderful plot twist I had planned. . .Rats. I forgot it.|
|But this idea is even better!! Oh, this story is going to be so awesome!|
|Oh great. I have lost all sense of direction in this story. Where was I even going with this???|
|*rereads work* Oh, this is sooo horrible! There is no way I will ever be able to finish this. I will leave it alone for a few days until I can decide what to do with it|
|Pinterest is awesome. Look at all these amazing story ideas! I should totally start a new one and trash that old story I'm stuck on|
|No! I can't do that. I will finish my original story if it kills me! (And it probably will at least threaten to do that. . . )|
|Look at me! I did it!! Isn't this awesome??? I got past the hard part! *rereads it* Oh. Uhh, did I seriously write this? Never mind, I don't care, I'll fix it later! Now I can write the fun stuff!|
|See, now this is what happens when you drink too much coffee and iced tea, and stay up to late. You start laughing at these ridiculous puns. They're not. Even. Funny.|
|This is amazing. Look, I wrote 3,000 words in the past two hours. I'm on a roll. I must keep going! Please, don't tell me I have to socialize. *headesk*|
|Siblings. I love ya all to death, but why did you not need me before I started writing?!?! But. . you are more important than my story. So I shall stop for you. ;)|
|I promise. Please, PLEASE don't tell me I'm horrible!! I promise, I am not trying to kill someone in real life!|
|YES. Perfect plot twist. My beta readers will kill me. Mwhahah! But. . it is sad. *sniffs* I'm sooo sorry, my poor characters.|
|And then my critique partner gets this message from me. And then she threatens to strangle me because she loved that character.|
|When I take a look at my recent searches...and suddenly realize that this would look so bad if a police ever had to look at all my search history. I would be behind bars. Investigated by the FBI. All that fun stuff.|
|And one day. . .wow. I got to the end. This is so amazing. I just finished my story. *dances around the room*|
|No. Definitely not. Today I will have fun and celebrate my accomplishment! (Yes,I do realize I finished it a month ago. That's beside the point.)|
|No, please, one more edit before I send it to my beta readers. ONE MORE EDIT!|
So tell me, did this sound at all familiar? Has any of these wonderful things happened to you? ;) You must tell me! Then we can talk about how crazy this "thing" called writing really is. :D
