Alas. "Friday Fricassee" no longer comes up when I type the letter "f" in my title box on Fridays. Instead, I get the entire list of F2S's. What was I thinking?
It's worth it, though. Interesting, isn't it, the varied responses and reactions to two measly sentences?
I threw mine into the mix, too. (Heh.) And the feedback is extremely useful! No, I haven't left comments. I struggled with this decision yesterday -- I wanted to wade through and leave feedback (of course I read them all as they came in). But you know, I can only allow myself so much time on this blog. And next week is going to be heavy duty blog time for me. So, I had to excuse myself. With regrets.
I think I just wrote y'all a form rejection. *grin*
At any rate, I find that I'm craving an entire day to JUST WRITE. Do you ever feel that way? (As if I don't know what the answer to that question is.) I have my dedicated writing time every day, and I'm plugging along, but... Well. A full day with nobody else around and lots of yummy food nearby to nourish me when I'm languishing sounds perfect. Don't you think?
Maybe it's this glorious October weather. And maybe, too, it's that I've got some real energy behind my story right now. I kinda know where I'm going. (I say "kinda" because I'm an organic writer, and I never truly KNOW know, if you know what I mean.) I hate stopping when my writing time is up.
So what does your weekend look like?
Oh, and if you entered your first two sentences -- was it a good experience for you? If you all found it useful, I'll do it again some time.
Monday's the big day -- are you ready?? I love these Secret Agent contests. Post your last-minute questions here, and I'll check periodically over the weekend. Remember that the submission window is only 24 hours long, so you'll want to make sure you've got everything in order before Monday morning rolls around.
Or Monday afternoon, if you're just outside London.
(I love my British readers. I do. I could wax poetic about England until you all begged me to stop. And, you know, if you're a Brit, I really want to know why you're drawn to this decidedly non-British blog. Not that I strive to be non-British. Actually, most of the DVDs that Mr. Authoress and I choose to spend our time watching are either British [old Brit-coms] or feature British actors. I mean, I know what pickle is. I know how to make cucumber sandwiches the right way. I buy P.G. Tips. I can name the wives of Henry VIII in order. I got up at 5:30 in the morning to watch the wedding of Prince Charles to Lady Diana. Really, I'll shut up now.)
Virtual hugs to all of you, and may your muses go into overdrive this weekend!
