Some thoughts congealing, but not ready to put down yet.
It’ll come later.
I’m hoping my thoughts on this will generate some stimulating conversation. Feel free to start without me, if you’d like though. I’ll catch up later and update this post when I can find the way to express the things that are on my mind today
(added @ 1318) After the first round of comments, I have added to this post…
*Sigh* Okay. Here’s the direction I wanted this post to go:
LOL. I’m having trouble even telling you that right now. Not a single sentence comes forth when I think. We’ll just have to go with keywords then. God. Universe. Humanity. The anthropomorphism and -centrism thoughts are surrounding these things, not our pets. I’ll have to do some googling to see what I can come up with to stimulate my brain this afternoon. It’s just not getting it done on it’s own this time.
(added @ 2241) My train of thought is lost on this. I should have taken notes while driving this morning. That’s when the ideas were presenting, and they were great ones. Too bad I can’t remember them now. So, I’m giving up now.
Somehow, the idea was going to be worked into my chapter, like the First Natural Law was. Except this was to do with the Universe and anthropocentrism… and the point was to do with it being a uniquely human perspective. The only perpective available to humans.
It’s time for bed. Maybe it’ll come in my sleep.
This post will only allude to the post I wish I had time to write. It would be a parallel, probably much over-used, but very applicable to my life right now.
My thoughts this morning have to do with Universal shift, the pain of giving birth and the fact that once there is engagement the push is on and going back is impossible. It was impossible long before this point, really. At crowning, ripping/tearing commences without pain. My own world, at least, is shifting into another phase, if not the entire Universe.
Right now dayjob duties have me too occupied to give enough time. And y’all know how much I love to draw a good parallel
This is a post from my other website about our spring water. Learning to live with a finite supply of water has changed my perception regarding this precious resource.

But that’ll be after coffee in a few minutes. It’s rare that words hit the screen before my morning cuppa.
Here’s part of my horoscope for today:
You are eager to dig into the mysteries of your own psyche as messenger Mercury opposes ruthless Pluto today. Fortunately, this intense planetary pair can guide you to a new place emotionally, or might even reveal buried treasure.
Now I even have encouragement to think weird today How great a start to the day is that?
Maybe by this evening, I’ll actually have thought of something to say.
Thought some of you writerly types might like to see the pictures from my other website, too.

The one I’d used was ‘ecstatic’.
But the one I need to use is ‘euphoric’.
The contrast in hue is slight, but it colors the entire scene in a different light.
This is my friend Kathy McCrite’s blog. She’s a published author and is soon going to be joining us on Twitter – so visit her blog and get ready to welcome her into the Twitterverse
And when I’ve twisted her arm long enough, she’ll submit and answer my 11-Question Interview
You might notice a new section on the right hand side of my blog. It’s called “My 11-Question Interviews”.
Each month I’ll be interviewing another author. Kait’s guest post is listed there, too because even though it isn’t using my interview format, she answers some compelling questions about her writing and method.
Putting this list on the side-bar will help them get a little more exposure, I hope. If you read one of the interviews, please comment, or add a question of your own. I’m sure the authors would love to see some feedback.
In my last post I made public my intention to read my 5 pages before printing it to bring to the writer meeting. Well. Of course I didn’t. It always seems that work conspires against me and if it can’t make me late for the meeting, then at least it manages to keep me from reading my material first. And it was as full of repeated words as I thought it’d be
Hopefully by #teasertuesday, I’ll have it cleaned up and ready to post.
My 5 pages for tonight’s crit session are still under edit. Hopefully, I’ll get finished during my lunch break, and this time I’m going to try really, really hard to remember to read it out loud before I hit ‘print’.
No matter how often I go over it for typos and bad grammar, repetitive words, or excessive adverb usage – when it’s my turn to read I hear all those things and more. It’s hard to turn off the internal editor when my list of ‘hot words’ has reached threshold tolerance limit. It’s very tempting to make corrections on the fly. But doing that really interrupts my flow of thought while reading, so I’m going to refrain from skipping or rearranging words while I’m reading this time.
Do you have any tricks to help you find your errors when doing your own editing? I’d love it if you share them with me
