Now, onto my post. Last week, I was tagged by our sparkly Miss Cherie for the meme: "Writing is Not Like a Box of Chocolates," started by the ingenious Greenwoman. The rules state I'm supposed to come up with my own metaphor for what writing is in fact like.
Several of my talented blogger pals have already been tagged with said meme, and put me to shame with their eloquence (Jenny P and Carissa), inspiring irreverence (Marewolf), and creative brilliance (Kalen and Cherie). And I'm sure there's more to come that I have yet to read.
So, I decided to be a little sneaky and make something with music and pictures, because I can never compete word-wise with these amazing posts. ;)
But first, according to Meme Etiquette, I also have to tag three of my blogger friends (and hope no one else has tagged them yet; if you've already been tagged, consider yourself twice blessed).
- Sophie Li, the queen of awesomesauce, who I expect will come up with something both charming and profound and might possibly even involve a stuffed animal.
- Ashley Nixon, who will no doubt weave a web of thought-provoking and effervescent insights.
- Mindy, whose sarcasm and wit can put a funny spin on even the most painful of subjects.
Now, time for my metaphor. Pump up the volume, push play, and follow a writer's trials as symbolized by the journey of a fragile yet resiliant rose. ;)
Just a reminder that I won't have a QueryTracker interview this Friday. I'm taking a few weeks off of interviewing to hang with family and work on my revisions and home renovations.
Everyone have a wonderful week and I'll see you back here next Wednesday!
