It’s back to editing, or well, it will be once I actually open up my document. So let’s talk about what gets cut and what doesn’t.
This month has gone by surprisingly quickly. Probably because I wasn’t home for part of it, and because I have a visitor staying with me for a couple weeks. It makes the time go by faster. So what did I do that made me miss two blog posts? Well, for one, I went to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Yep, for the first time ever. I am quite slow, I admit.
When I was living in China, I came across quite a bit of Chinglish (Chinese-English). I’m pretty sure they relied on Google Translate for all of their signs, shirts, and whatever else. A lot of it made very little sense, or some sense if you took half of it out. I didn’t run into the same problem in France so I wonder what went wrong in China.
From me to you.
It’s a long weekend coming up, and I’ve been trying to decide what to do with it. There are several options, of course: go somewhere, do a house project, work on a novel. I looked at my list of house “to do” things this morning, and most of them were big old nopes.
I am a master procrastinator. Then again, aren’t all Millenials? Aren’t all writers?
Sometimes I think I have things under control, only to have the rug pulled out from under me by something totally unexpected. I always thought, as a kid, that there was a schedule to follow. You know: college, married by 25, kids, same career for 35 years until I retired. That was before I realized I didn’t like kids, had no desire to get married, and had no idea what career I would want to do for 35 years. Now, I’m almost 30, and definitely “off schedule.”
