Well, this first day of summer break is starting off exactly as expected: two kids who are already cranky with each other after an hour being awake, and I got no sleep. Sounds awful, right? Except for the fact that we have absolutely, positively, wonder-f'n-fully nowhere to go today! They can be cranky! I can be tired! We can all spend the day grounded in our rooms! Who cares!
This, this part right now, is the part of summer break that I was so excited for lol.
The funny similarity to my days back in Mr Jordan's high school English class is that I still can't, to this day, give myself the word of the day. Trying to do it myself actually gave me writer's block this past Christmas. This summer break, I'm ignoring my writer pride's demands that I come up with every original idea completely by myself and I've been asking friends and family to give me random words. (Or, in the case of my youngest, a random letter lol.) Not only has it made for fun conversations to tell people about the stories spinning out of their words, I'm having a great time writing up a ton of new content for blogging.
I can't wait to start sharing this stuff with you in September! Hope you have a great weekend!
Why are Authors crazy? I can't answer that, but I can provide bits of my own thoughts so that you can piece together why I may be.
