You know how sometimes, you decide to turn your negatives into positives?
Like when you're in a job interview, and they ask you your greatest weakness, and instead of saying SPIDERS, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, SPIDERS, you say, "I'm just too much of a perfectionist" or some other load of complete bullsh*t?
I'm learning how to do that.
I have a short attention span, get bored easily, and chase shiny things like a cat with a penlight.
I'M BEING CREATIVE AND FOLLOWING MY MUSE.
I tend to get obsessed with things. And obsess over them. Obsessively.
I really like to eat cupcakes and brownies.
I'M BEING KIND TO MYSELF WHILE I WRITE.
I hate cleaning. And laundry. And picking up after other people.
I'M FOCUSING ON MORE LUCRATIVE WORK. FOR THE GOOD OF THE FAMILY.
I love shopping online for boots and coats and hats.
I'M CULTIVATING MY BRAND.
I like talking to people on Twitter and Facebook.
I JUST TOLD YOU: I'M *CULTIVATING* MY *BRAND*.
I need excuses to take long, bubbly baths in the middle of the day.
I'M ENTERING A TRANCE STATE TO SOLVE PLOT PROBLEMS.
In short, pretty much everything I do that's horrid can be translated into a positive in my career as an author.
IT'S THE BEST THING EVER.
Only nine minutes until the brownies are ready.
