I've come up with some doozy excuses for not writing.
Watching West Wing reruns.
You know its bad if I choose to do the dishes instead of sitting down at the laptop.
I think my favorite must be, the character's name is all wrong.
I've done this countless times and I'm at it again.
I don't like my male main character name that I came up with. Well, I like it, but I don't think I can use it.
As soon as I picked it I learned about three of four other people who have this actual name, including like a third cousin of mine, and now all I can think of is them and not my hot, gorgeous, muscly character.
So, instead of writing, I'm spending stupid hours 'researching' names that I can use instead.
Yeah, I know. It's just an excuse. There is something else going on here. Something my writer brain doesn't like about what I've written or will be writing and I need to sit back down and read it over and think about it instead of pretending its a name thing.
Thanks, I needed that.
So, I'll go do that....and you...vote for a new name for the fire gnome!
See the poll? Up there on the right?
Voting will close on Friday!
How was your weekend?
Did you favorite NFL team make it through the wildcard games?
