IronGirl is in
I just signed up for NaNoWriMo, and I need to put an image of myself online, so here it is. I don't actually look like that; I had my hair 'done' straight to try to look professional. My hair usually looks uncontrollably curly. Not sure why I'm so shiny, either. Odd. Look for me as IronGirl.
For the month of November, I'll have crazy ponytail hair, no makeup and glasses. Nice. Hopefully compared to E's deer-hunting compadres I'll still look good. If I don't, I'm in trouble.
Ha ha - just saw this: www.willwriteforchocolate.com/
I'm skimming through my 'how to' books before plunging in again with book 2. I'm enjoying Sol Stein's books. Here are a couple of quotes from How to Grow a Novel:
"Open your mind to the possibilites your imagination could generate."
"In our not-yet-acknowledged secret garden lie the seeds of our best not-yet-written stories."
To take the edge off the touchy-feeliness, here is the inspiring message E posted on my wall: Analyse,
Adapt (crossed out), Exfoliate and
Overcome (crossed out), Moisturize.
