When I'm overwhelmed, the words stop.
They rush into my mind but I can't get them out. Or sometimes they come out but I can't publish them, in fear of boring you all.
And so I pronounce my words Mostly Dead. Which means there's hope, because there's a big difference between Mostly Dead and All Dead. Currently, they lie listless from the torture I've inflicted upon them, and together we'll wait for our very own Miracle Max to come along and upgrade them to Alive.*
See you on the other side.
(If you're missing my words terribly (ha!) then you can read some I wrote a little while ago that have made it into the magazine world. Current issues of Go Camping, Practical Parenting and WellBeing contain stories from me - my three favourite topics all on the stands at the same time!)
* That entire paragraph is a total rip-off of The Princess Bride. If you haven't read the book and seen the movie - shame on you. Go and do it!
