GRAPEMO 2011: Day #2


Quote of the day: "When we read, we start at the beginning and continue until we reach the end.  When we write, we start in the middle and fight our way out." Vickie Karp


Well, I'm starting in the middle of a WIP I haven't looked at in almost a year. It wasn't the project I'd planned to work on this month, but I've suddenly changed my mind for reasons too complicated to go in to.

Today here in Ohio, the world is a sheet of ice, the snow glazed over by last night's rain which froze on almost on impact. If you walk very carefully you can tread the surface. If you walk with any purpose, you crack the ice and your foot plunges through the snow and hits the ground. It's an odd sensation--you have that one split second when you feel you might lose your balance--but fun, too, in a silly, little-kid way.

Thought for the day: Tread if you must. But don't be afraid to plunge. :)


Tomorrow is TEASER THURSDAY. If anyone is brave enough yet, here's a reminder:

1.      Tuesday teasers need to be in by Monday night for posting on Tuesday and Thursday Teasers need to be in by Wednesday night for posting on Thursday. Teasers received too late for posting will definitely be posted on the next TEASER day.

2.      Once the teasers are posted for the day I won't be adding to that entry.

3.      Up to 300 words, give or take.

4.      Remember to include a TITLE. If you are e-mailing me, be sure to include your LJ user name (I don't always associate e-mail names with LJ names...cuz I'm old, yanno). 

5.      Please put “TEASER” in the subject line so I don’t miss it.


C'mon, you know you want to! And each time you submit a TEASER you are entered in a drawing. :)

Well, so far my word count is nearly 0. We had bad storms come through yesterday morning, and decided to stay most of the day. It took out the power, so no writing. (no heat either!) But I'll try to get a few words today, so I can send a teaser. (Whew! My fingers are so cold.)

Love that quote!

And...it's time...for...teasers? YIPES. I'm not sure I'll be brave enough for Thursday...but perhaps Tuesday!
