Is it weird that every time I type "blog" into the URL bar at the top of my screen, I get excited? Nah, didn't think so.
So, the days have just been flying by without much time or cause to blog. Exciting. Alack and alas, however, it's a Tuesday, still the beginning of the week, and I just want to curl up under my blankets and forget all about the secretory vesicle (Biology 9, oh joy).
Luckily, there is hope! The weekend is like a shining beacon that guides me through the crowded halls and dank classrooms. Or something like that. On Friday night, I'm going to be packing up my little laptop, maybe a notebook, and enough food for sustenance and walking down to a local cafe to just sit, order a chai latte, and relax.
Did I say relax? My mistake--I actually meant write my butt off.
Since this is, sad but true, going to be one of my first experiences 'writing on the road' or at least out of the house, I'm wondering if you have any tips.
For one thing, I sometimes like to read aloud what I've just written to make sure that it sounds okay--dialogue especially. I guess I could do this in public, too, it just might result in me being morally shunned for the rest of my life. I also really love to lose myself in my writing, and even though being around people should help with ideas (not to mention dusting off those social skills--I thought I left them somewhere around here...), I'm guessing it can be distracting. Any tips on how to effectively zone out?
That is all. Dinner, a science project, and eventually yoga await!
Have a great week,
