I have a question for you. Do you binge read? I know I tend to. I will go for awhile without reading anything and then suddenly Ican'tstopreadingtosavemylifeandImustkeepreadingandtherearetoomanybooksandwordswordsstinkingwords
I also do this with writing. You know, where you haven't written since November and suddenly you lock yourself in your room and start screaming about your characters?
Okay. Ahem. Maybe screaming isn't a normal part of the writing experience, but moving on.
It got me to thinking about bulimia. And no, I'm not going to make fun of bulimic people. I know it's a serious thing and I'm not trying to take away from that. However...
I have always thought about my writing experience as this:
1) Read a Thousand Books.
b) Spend two days-two weeks in shock.
3) Write a Book.
Or in pictures:
See the clown read...
Eat Clown, Eat!
Watch the Clown Vomit.
Clown just wrote a book!
Good job, Clown.
Basically, that is what I look like when I write my first drafts.
How 'bout you? *sits at computer and waits* *grabs chips* *waits*
