Coming up for air.
Writing like a big bad butch.
This update is brought to you by Red Bull. And all the cups of coffee I’ve consumed. Thank you, Red Bull and coffee.
Things that have happened since my last post:
I have learned that marriage is a money saver. Straight people have been sitting on this secret for years. When we paid our auto insurance premium last month, we updated our status to married. Progressive ended up sending us a check for $46. That’s right, married people get free money. For being married. So, if you live in a state that allows same-sex marriage, go for it. Because free money.
I changed one of the main characters in my novel in progress from a former beauty queen to a former female wrestler. Does anyone out there remember GLOW (Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling)? It debuted in 1986. C’mon lesbians, think. Extra points if you can name any of these spandexed gals.
W is on a lavender kick. She bought this new lavender butter (not for toast!) that she rubs on before bed. After she coats herself in a thin coat of lavender, she rubs it on my cheeks and my chin and under my nose. I giggle because it seems so girly. But I have been sleeping like a giant butch baby. Zzzzzzz.
And W is great. She humors me about this crazy writing thing. Like when I start talking to myself, she gently asks who I’m talking to. And at night when I say that maybe I’m not a fiction writer after all, she just rolls over and says “goodnight, baby.”
Back to the grind. If you’re doing NaNoWriMo, feel free to add me as a buddy(my handle is rtheo).
