Thirty Day Challenge: Day Eleven

Recent Picture of Yourself

Well, OK. Here are some goofy photos I took of myself during a writing session. This is what writing looks like. Kind of.

Here I'm trying to decide if a certain character should meet a spectacularly grisly demise in a skateboard accident, or become King of Westphalia:

"Should I kill that character or not?"


Here I'm trying to decide which synonym for "exsanguinate" I want to use in a particular sentence:

"Now what word am I looking for here?"


Here I've just realized that my two main characters, who have been flirting with one another for several stories, are in fact brother and sister! Who knew!!!

"AHHH! I got it!"


Here I'm starting to question the wisdom of setting my tale of star-crossed lovers who must overcome the societal bonds of class to be with each other forever on a cruise ship that is doomed to sink on its maiden voyage.

"Is this crap any good?"


And here I've finally seized upon Inspiration and am following her directions to the production of amazing prose:

"DIE WORDS DIE"

Clearly, I need to start interviewing for a better muse. This one is basically an office temp with a bad attitude.

So there you have it: recent pictures of me! Hooray!
