Practical Guide for Completing a Novel

Turn over the "WELCOME" mat, hiding the sentiment.

Ignore the dishes.

Laugh in the face of laundry. Ha, ha, ha!

Let the Sunday papers pile up unread.

Overlook the Barbies that have taken up permanent residence on the dining room table.

Bathing? Overrated.

When the school calls to say another parent is needed to go on the class field trip, say, "Sorry, I'm working today."

Never, ever, EVER turn this on...


And now back to my WIP!

Perfect advice. Now I know I've been doing the WRITE things all along!

You know me, I just wouldn't be able to ever write!

Okay, Sunshine! I can relate to most of your list (laundry, TV, laundry, TV) and you are so right.

This is a wonderful picture show for those of us who can't "get it" by trying to read only.

Thanks Valerie,
Barbara B

Ha, ha! I loved this! I have Barbie dolls and every other kind of doll taking up residence on my table, kitchen counters, hallway--it's an epidemic. :) But I love listening to my kids play.
