Happy Easter, everyone. I don’t do April Fool’s jokes. In fact, I absolutely hate it when people pull them – at least for the most part I do. Silly ones like George Takei’s “Gaysha” announcement, or the BBC’s “The Earth Exploded” news flash from a few years ago, those I don’t mind. But most other ones? Yeah, just don’t. Especially not when they involved pregnancy announcements. For the record, pulling that kind of prank hurts those of us who can’t have children, so please, don’t do it.
Anywho, now that that’s off my chest… Rough Trade has started! As you know, I’ve been looking forward to this event for a while. I haven’t been writing much for various reasons but I really wanted to join in on this one. So this morning I started. And of course, I hated every single word that came out. Typical, right? Things just didn’t want to flow and the image in my head would not come out in the right words.
Thankfully, Jennifer read what I had and talked me off the ledge and made some suggestions. I still haven’t posted because not long after I ended up passing out for an unwanted nap (haven’t slept well and have been in pain, so it wasn’t unexpected) and my brain’s been fuzzy since. We’ll see if I manage to rally and do more later today but I’m glad to have the first 800 words. Fingers crossed the rest of the month goes better.
