Photoshop Friday

1001 Quasi-Legitimate Ways that I Avoid Editing

Okay, there won't really be 1001 reasons. Not in this post anyway, but let me assure you, in my head . . . oh yes. This will be just a random sampling.

Also, when I say "quasi-legitimate" I mean all the obvious (and genuinely legitimate) ones aside, like family, sleep, food, moving, etc. These are the ones that get me when I finally carve out a moment of time to work on edits.

Watch the subtle digression.

I'm writing this cool new short story!

I have an awesome idea for a new novel! I just need to sketch some details out in my notebook.

Gotta catch up on those writer friend's blogs . . .

And don't forget the Agent blogs. (Note: the hearts are intentionally sappy/fangirlish.)

And the writing forums.


Hmm . . . I'm just going to quickly Google: *fill in the blank with legitimate, writing related thing, like books, authors, agents, publishers, etc.*

This is an interesting, writing related article . . .

I'm going to take this quiz: Do you have what it takes to be published??


*sigh* Neil Gaiman is so dreamy.

WAIT!!! IT'S ONE IN THE MORNING??? Where did my night go? I was going to get so much done on my edits! *headdesk*

Truly, no offense to any who's picture I did not include in the friend picture. I just went down the list of my blogroll. I really do love you all!! Hence the etc., etc., etc. . . :)

Oh no, now you've got all of us distracted from editing! Did you know that tomorrow is Set-A-Good-Example Saturday? Guess we better get to work ;)

Oh wait, the summer solstice is this weekend. Isn't that reason #1002 to avoid editing?

Ha ha ha ha ha...


Natalie said...

Hehe, I'm sorry I'm doing my part to distract you.

Also, what is that weird thing in the bottom heart of you agent fangirl poster?

Renee Collins said...

Joanne-Ha ha! Set a Good Example Saturday, eh? Uh-oh.

Though I love that it's summer solstice. I didn't realize! Summer is already flying by.

Kiersten- :)

Natalie-Ah, no problem. I like it. :)

Also, that is Janet Reid's "pet," Pink Octopus. He/she shows up on the blog sometimes. Cutest darn thing ever.

Dude, I'm in your Photoshop Friday!! I feel special :)

Miriam S.Forster said...

hahahahaha.... I have the exact same problem. Or I will, now that the internet is up again. Dang... :-)

Terri Tiffany said...

LOL ! Take off everything except your blogger roll and you will have plenty of time!! :)))

Renee Collins said...

Sara-You are special. (*cue cheesy music)

Miriam-It's so true! That darn internet. SO distracting.

Terri-Oh yes. There are many things I could/should axe out. And I try to . . . but it's not always easy.

Man, great list. Mine is very similar. Add a few trips to itunes to find the perfect song for my new idea and then off to google images to find the perfect lead character for my new idea. Oh, and wait, must go to the baby names website to pick out a perfect name for my lead. :) I can avoid both editing and writing very efficiently.
