It would help if she at least opened her word processing program.

I had a fit of inspiration a few years ago and started a manuscript, writing from December 2008 to February 2009. Creativity comes in bursts for me, and I quickly switch from one project to another. This comic, in fact, is one of the few projects I've stuck with for any period of time. This week, though, I reopened the manuscript and began writing again. Will it last this time? Who knows!

Today is my mother's birthday, and I want to recognize everything she's done for me. When I was very young, I composed lots of short stories. I would draw the illustrations, and my mother would write the words I dictated to her. This allowed me to play with language much more than I would have otherwise, not being held back by concerns about handwriting or spelling. I became a storyteller because of this gift from my mother. Mom, thank you. Happy birthday.

Hah! Take your laptop to the library, Minty. Or camp out at a friend's house where you can get some quiet time in a different environment. And temporarily disable your wireless. That's my advice.

(Also, wine! Wine instead of soda. XD)

If I sat down to write with a box of chocolates like that, the entire box would be gone before I got around to opening Word. It would be pathetic. I do kind of wish I had an interesting headband to wear while writing, though.

...Now I want chocolates.

Kimono hasn't gotten Minty into wine yet, but I see she's convinced her of the charms of better chocolate. ;)
