I’m pretty sure I’ve never done a ‘list-cicle’, so here we go my first and last … list!
Heh, the bastards are never really ‘DONE’ though, are they?
Mrs Widds and I will do a basic line edit/read-through, and then … depending on whether we find any clangers, it’s FORMAT TIME.
Here’s my list …
1 – I can write 2000+ words a day, (in a couple of hours sometimes!!!) and still have a life, and a relationship.
2 – I can write when I don’t have a clue what’s going to happen next, but trust that it will all make sense by the end. (and it did!)
3 – I can write when I have a migraine, vertigo, a migraine, sciatica, a migraine, an allergic reaction to the Covid vaccine, a migraine, emergency dental work, arthritic joints, (looking at you, knees) a migraine …
4 – I can write during a 42°C soul-crushing heatwave
5 – I can write when I’m So. Fucking. Exhausted. From #2 that I can barely focus.
6 – I am a Writing Titan!
Bonus – Always, always, keep a print copy. Always.
Extra Bonus – and apropos of nothing in particular, I found Lawrence of Arabia on YouTube.
