Well, not free. But reasonably cheap. Ba-dum-bum. ;)
(Okay, see, that was really just an example of what I'm about to blog about: writing whatever comes into your mind. Just spitting it out, no matter how inane--oh, look, a butterfly!--it seems at the time, because the idea is just to get words flooooowing along, in the hopes that something good might accidentally spew out with all the--no, not a butterfly, a BAT! A big freakin' bat with a two-foot wingspan!!--garbage.)
Whew. So admittedly this is not so much an orderly discussion of the craft of writing, or even an extension of my post on warming up, but rather an indirect admission that I don't have a damn thing to blog about today, and I told myself I WOULD blog about something, and that once I started typing I was not going to stop until I finished. (This is a lot harder than it seems, especially for an inveterate re-writer, fiddler, tinkerer, whatever you want to call it, like me.) But, damn it, I'm gonna do it, because I said I was gonna do it, and when I say I'm gonna--
Gawd, this is getting BORING, isn't it?
Okay, I never said it was going to be a LONG post, did I? Just a nice, short post, illustrative of the concept.
And you know what? Now I feel like working on the WIP, so I guess there might actually be something to it.
