Death Waits For No Man...

...well I'm a woman...erm, second thoughts, best not to tempt fate on the world wide web, you never know who's reading your blog. *Looks up to see if a piano is dangling above her head and hopes if one ever lands on her head that it's in tune*.

Now that she's officially Death, my MC is discovering the job comes with more accessories than a Barbie doll and to make things worse, her creator (that would be me) has left her standing in a corridor with her dead twin. And she's certain that at any minute the drama teacher, Mrs De Witt, is going to leave the auditorium and drag her up onto the stage...again.She might be right...writer is dithering, or rather twittering.

Word count = poop.

Other 'this week' things: -

Fancy new furniture delivered, fancy new furniture semi-constructed by me, fancy new cabinet has not so fancy scratch - note: glass shelves mega heavy, me = non superpowers, lucky glass didn't shatter and stab other pretty new furniture in the back.

Still have Easter eggs in the house (none of which are for me). Unfortunate fact: I ate one of the eggs. Even more unfortunate fact: if I eat any more, small people will kick me in the shins and I won't be able to run because my hips will be stuck in my desk chair.

Hideous and unfortunate fact: for a moment, the above read: 'if I eat any more small people'

That is all.

But small people are so tasty...

Your new story sounds intriguing.

Our Easter eggs are long-gone. :(

Sounds like your MC might be in a bit of trouble...

Yeah, no more Easter eggs here either. Chomp chomp chomp.

Mary, especially when they're jelly babies... Feel free to groan. :D

Anthony, she might be indeed.

If you eat them they can't complain about the eggs, now can they?

*sigh* Great post Cate!!

If it's any consolation I was once writing a part of my WIP and my MC was wearing a short sleeved shit for months (in the rough) until I came across it when I started the first draft. :D

Don't let the small people get you down, if you want eggs eat eggs. You put together your shiny new furniture all by yourself. You deserved it ;)

Mmmmm...small people.

"Now that she's officially Death . . ."

You have me at Death.

Love it!

Andrea Allison said...

Why only small people? Big people too much of a challenge for ya? :o)

Cate Gardner said...

Natalie, good point.

Hinny, I have many such incidents hiding in my text.

Aaron, remember the doctor said you could only consume one a week.

Cheers, Brendan

Andrea, I avoid big people.

What a coincidence...that's also MY word count as of late...

Demon Hunter said...

LOL. Glad you changed the sentence. :-D I'm sure small people everywhere appreciate it. ;-)

Eating small people isn't good for you--you shouldn't snack in between eating big people for meals. :)

Cate Gardner said...

Barry, and I bet a few others are lingering around that mark too.

DH, especially my small people.

KC, true.
