Writing is a dangerous profession.

I'm getting to the good part in Valkyrie which means it is now in my brain 24/7. This is all well and good when I am doing mundane tasks like loading the dishwasher. More complex tasks like walking have now become an issue.

Yesterday I walked into the wall while coming out of the sauna at the gym. I was too busy thinking about how my MC was supposed to lure someone off. Today I went into the land of make believe while driving and almost rear ended a semi.

I seriously need to find an off switch in my brain.


  1. This is one of many reasons why I am not allowed to cook (the two major reasons being "heat" and "sharp things"). I get so wrapped up in a story, I forget that (and what) I'm cooking. Oops.

    I'm getting to the point with both "Closer" and "Black Dark" that they're on my brain 99% of the time. Guess it's a good thing I don't drive anymore.

    Only solution: GET IT WRIT. Get it out of your brains. 'Tis the only me.

  2. Yay, I love the ponder-y stage of writing! :)
