Dialogue Me

"I think you really have something here." She said, looking at the rough draft on the computer screen.
"Are you sure? It seems to be....missing.....something." She replied.

She scrolled down the pages, looking at how much was written. "Will you finish in time to complete the challenge?" She asked.

Big sigh: "I don't know. I hope so. There are just so many other things that call for my attention! I seem to the only person in the house who knows what dish soap is, or how to turn on the stove."

She smiled, nodding. "I know what you mean. Sometimes you have to choose your priorities, though. The dishes will still be there tomorrow. There's always a bowl of cereal, if they're that hungry. But YOU only have until the end of the month to get 50,000 words down. And I know you. You want them to be good words."

She patted herself across the face and scolded, "Stop talking to yourself, damn it! Start writing!"

Always, feel free to comment! Trish in AZ


  1. Clearly you're doing NaNoWriMo, good for you! And you're right to tell yourself that it's all about priorities... although remember that talking to yourself out loud makes you a crazy person. ;-)

  2. I thought she was talking to her muse, but talking/writing to yourself is the same thing! (Shh, don't tell the muse that) Nice job! Good luck with Nano, too.

  3. Venus.... I don't recall ever having said that I was NOT crazy? :D If someone told you I said that, they were lying. LOL

  4. How funny! I talk to myself all the time! :)

  5. Sounds so familiar. I always feel guilty if I'm actually writing. There are dishes and laundry and kids and cats and husbands who want our attention.

    Good luck with NaNo :)

  6. There's always cereal if they're hungry... heehee.

    Can I use that on my husband tonight?

    And hooray for NaNoWriMo solidarity!
