Now, here’s a secret to Drama Queen: I’m one of those crazy collaborative writing people who lurks around rpgs and once churned out a good 40,000 words in a given month even when I was working part-time and attending college more than full-time. One of the things about being back home is that I’ve had to cut down on my writing time by a lot. There’s just way too much to do around here! (And babysitting isn’t nearly so conducive to multi-tasking as procrastinating homework is. Go figure.)

But back to tonight...before I step onto my soapbox. (I am the Drama Queen, after all.)
So as I was eagerly logging into my google doc account (on Mom’s computer since I was listening for the canner’s timer to ring), Teach wandered in with her yummy-looking toast and gestures that it’s her turn. “What?” I asked, playing dumb.
“I need to do the pictures for Mom’s blog.”
“Can it wait fifteen minutes? My friend’s only gonna be online for that long...”
“Why not do it on your own computer?”
My poor laptop. It’s in such disrepair it lives in a corner of the basement with a separate monitor that glows pink no matter how much I jiggle the connecting cable. “It takes fifteen minutes to boot up. ...I’ll do the pictures…” It was an offer Teach was not passing up. She retired happily with her delicious apricot jam toast. ...Can you tell I’m hungry? But nothing was standing in the way of the opportunity to finally write out the brilliant idea I had for a new story!
