New Experiences-toes

No, that's not my broken toe. I thought baby toes were a better choice since they are so cute. You don't want to see my toe, or toes.

I've had a new experience. I broke/dislocated my little toe. At any rate, after I rammed it into the corner of a trunk, I looked down and saw it sticking out at a right angle to the foot. Like Jasper's claw looked when he hurt it. So, I reached down and pushed the toe back where it belonged, heard a click, taped it to the toe next to it and iced it.

The toe is now a lovely dark violet color. And, did you know you can't wear shoes comfortably with a broken toe, including flip-flops. I'm limping, and wearing black slipper with everything-a totally sex and the city fashion look-NOT! Anyone who know me is aware that I'm not a slave to fashion, but black slippers, in the summer-come on.

On to writing. I decided to finish Agatha Ann and the Shadow Curse and printed it out. I've done more on it than I thought. It should be fun. Also, study for the certification test we won't discuss and wait, wait, wait to hear from an editor, which most likely won't happen for months, if at all. Just adore the waiting game. My least favorite part of writing.

So, what's your favorite or least favorite writing task? One lucky commentator will receive an electronic copy of "Fairy Dust" or "Museums are Murder." Their choice. Include an email addy.

I absolutly hate editing and writing a synopsis. The tasks should be banned!! My sympathy for your toe. And as an avid little toe breaker myself, I feel your pain!!!

Waiting first, synopsis next in line.I don't really mind editing because that means I have the first draft finished. Always a great feeling.

Wonderful article. I broke one of my toes once by accidently stomping it against the leg of my sofa. It wasn't fun. I have to admit my least favorite writer task is editing. I think it's boring. But that's just me.

Writing th synopsis, but a close second is all the branding and marketing. That takes as much time as writing the novel.
