The Writing Buddy

I have had amazing writing buddies. People from college, soon-to-be BWDDA Karina, and of course, the lovely and talented GF Jen... Inspirations. Every last one of them. I'm blessed. And I'm blessed with this new writing pal. Darling invisible friend, meet....


Now, don't get worked up, dearest. Cider and I have not developed an unhealthy relationship. At this point, we're just enjoying each other's company. I haven't stopped seeing my other friends. Tea and I will always be close, nay, inseparable. But Cider was a big help today. Bless its barely-alcoholic little heart.

I think I told you before that I set a fairly lofty goal for myself. For me, anyway. No, not with cider-consumption. With writing. Try to keep up, darling. And we know that the first day wasn't as successful as any of us might have wished. But today.... Today I wrote 15 pages. All of it complete crap, but 15 pages. I sat in the dim woodiness of the Irishmen pub and typed and sipped and ate way too much food. I also got a parking ticket, which made for an expensive day of writing. But I wrote. 15 pages.

All I can say is,

God bless Cider.


  1. Yay, Lisa! Build on it! Do more of the same, with the appropriate adjustments (e.g., park elsewhere).

  2. Nice of you to have nice writing friends. Guess I'm just not one of it. :(

    Knew you could get close to that goal. Just believe.
