Grapemo Monday Week #4

Well, I am off to see an oral surgeon today (I know, I know...after the horse has already left the barn) just to be sure I don't have any bone fragments lodged in my cerebellum, or undetected holes that might be leaking spinal fluid or something...

Wait, I'm kidding. Kidding!

This is me today--


--and I can't decide if it looks worse than it feels or if it feels worse than it looks.

FYI, I'm taking my last wisdom tooth to my grave.

The GOOD news is that I mixed up my schedule and I'm really off today, so I'll be off to work on my line edits after the appointment. I am sooo far behind and although I've got a great excuse, it doesn't make me feel any better about it. Many of us had to reassess our PWGs this month, for various reasons. The fact that we're still INTO this enough to want to revise our goals is a pretty good sign, don't you think?

“If you are a writer you locate yourself behind a wall of silence and no matter what you are doing, driving a car or walking or doing housework you can still be writing, because you have that space. --Joyce Carol Oates

Thought for Week #3: Nobody here who has spent time in that "space"--regardless of how much or how little you've actually written--is anywhere close to failure. We have one more week to get through as much as we can!


1. Teaser need to be in by tonight so I can post them tomorrow morning.
2. Once the teasers are posted I won't be adding to that entry. PLEASE, if at all possible, send in a teaser this time. If I get a bunch at the last minute I'll throw in a Teaser Thursday. :)
3. Up to 300 words, give or take.
4. Please remember to include a title.
5. This week's Teasers will invole a dog who loooves to draw names!!

I love that quote!

I have photos of me after having two wisdom teeth removed, and it's not a pretty picture. Glad you're on the mend.

Gads, I hurt for you.

Does it make you feel better that I've got the cold from hell, I'm getting a fever blister and the conference is a week from Thursday? So I'll have a red nose, a scabby lip and a bad attitude. LOL

Fell better, Jen. I'd give you a big hug, but I'm afraid you'd catch a cyber cold.

No teaser from me this week. I got absolutely no writing done this week. not one flippin' word.

Yeah but you have tha CONFERENCE coming up! As soon as that's over with I'm sure you'll be back on a roll. And ditch that cold! ;)

Oh, man, Jeannine. Sympathy is running out of me onto the page. I'm hoping for a better report from you soon, that you can put this BEHIND you. (And get back to the "Ah, life is good" place.)
