Dear self …  
Ernest Hemingway could tell a perfectly good story in six words.

Of course, he was a complete wanker, but still.

Your aching body who would like you to finally admit that the typing elves are NEVER going to visit

Try leaving out teeny glasses of correction fluid next to the typewriter for the elves. Works for me! (Of course, what they write when high on White-Out is barely worth reading.)

That would be worse for my laptop than my fluffy cat! (So much fine cat hair needing to be tweezed out from the keys …)

I want some typing elves! And it is a good story. :)

When I am mega-rich, I will endow worthy writers with dictaphones and a typist's allowance!

I hear being a complete wanker helps!

If anyone disagreed with his genius, he shot them ;)

So what I need isn't practice writing, but time at the gun range? Done!

You can do it! *cheers you from the finishing last line* It's really close, too. *hugs*

My arms are falling off! Humans aren't meant to clock 30,000 words a week. Admittedly, some of that is work, but still … OUCHIE! (Would Richard Armitage like a short woman with detached arms, do you think? I still have triangular cyclist's calves!)

Maybe, but your stories are far too lovely to stop after 6 words. Also, it would run something like "Harry Draco unicorn mystery/politics friends yum" and really, what kind of story would that be?

My elves like Redbull for short bursts but it does make them very giggly and then tired.

Good luck- you always get there in the end, things are always more fun if you stress at the last minute.

"Oi, Malfoy! You, me, whaddaya say?"

There we go, done!

And oh, me on caffeine, it's not a pretty picture. (It's more a sort of Futurist painting viewed through 3D glasses and a hand-held camera …)

Thank you. I will get there, but this year has been All Stress, All the Writing, and I still have not a single novel finished. Stupid year. Next year I am finishing a bloody novel before I do anything else!

You have typing elves down there? I am so so so jealous!

blamebramptonblamebrampton on November 19th, 2012 01:52 pm (UTC)
Yeah, we have them, but they're drunk and recalcitrant. Bloody elves!

You can do it!
