cursed blessed with a meme, The Writing Process Blog Tour, from our most wonderful and creative pals over at GLOGIRLY.
Katie--the brains of the outfit, Waffles--purrfessional solipsist, and Glogirly--secretary to the stars, crack me up nearly every day with their witty repartee and drive me to tears with longing for better photography skills.
As with all memes, there are rules, which this time *gasp* I'm actually gonna follow:
1. Introduce you to the blogger who invited us to participate. done. ✔
2. Answer three "easy" questions. be patient. I'm getting there...
3. Tag a favorite blogger whom I'd love to
I'm regretting following these
stupid rules already.
Question A: What am I working on?
Hell if I know. This post? I didn't realize I was supposed to be organized at blogging.
Question %: Why do I write what I do?
Honestly, cats and technical crap are all I really know about...and I don't feel there's a huge rapt audience out there in the blogosphere dying to read about chemistry, EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
Cats are different. People want to read about cats. I have cats. It was a pretty simple decision.
Question 33 ⅓: How does my writing process work?
I'm always struggling for the next post. Not that I lack for cats (!!!) or ideas; for me the bottleneck is photos. Since I've started writing the majority of my posts at work it's hard to play around and edit photos when I'm not at my laptop, and it kills my creative buzz to "pre-do" photos--my story comes as I play with the images. Having said that, how it usually works is I get busy doing other stuff and around 19:40 (optimally I publish at 20:00) I get all Holy crap I need to DO something for tomorrow's post! and, wracked with remorse for not having started sooner, bang something out and hope for the best. Very rarely I'll have something in mind which allows me to put off the inevitable composition to 19:54 or even later...I'm not very good with plans and deadlines...as a matter of fact it's past my publishing time right now.
Now for the good part, picking a
victim friend to write about their writing process...
A multi-cat blog written by a person who is one of the most wonderful ex-pat English people living in Finland I know.
Thanks, Glogirly, for giving me something interesting to do at work whilst causing me only mild anxiety. It was fun! Really.
