Congrats, Kayeleen Hamblin! I'll send you your code promptly. :)
On a complete side note, I had this e-mail conversation with my friend Mandy yesterday, and she gave me the idea to use it as a blog post, so I'm going to just cut and paste our conversation to save time and effort. I'll color code our parts to make it easier for you.
Karen: In the last 48 hours, I've written all of a page and a half. It's just the scene. When I get her back with [the love interest], there are a few pages at least that will just fly out of me, I know. (Because I've already written them 3 times in my head.) But I have to get the MC there.
Mandy: I hate the getting to the good stuff parts. That’s when poopy first draft rears its ugly head the most.
Karen: lol...I was thinking about the slower versus fun parts this morning. It's like a cupcake. The good parts (the kisses, the chases, the fights) are the frosting, but you can't just sit down and eat a tub of frosting (okay, I sometimes do, but I shouldn't, and it makes me feel ill.) You have to have the cake part, too. I'm wallowing around in batter right now.
Mandy: That is the best analogy I’ve ever heard. (except for the kisses part, that’s like the burned bottom that gets stuck in the paper thingy) You totally should blog that.
Karen: Shut up! I love the kisses. At least in my head.
Kristin jumped in at this point: Yes. Very good analogy. Makes me hungry.
Karen: Me, too. This weather is insanely nice, and I think the Pea just woke up. I'm going to have to go for a walk and work up my cupcake appetite. Did you guys hear that there's a gourmet cupcake bakery in Fayetteville? I hereby put in my vote to meet there (or at least pick up snacks) for an upcoming meeting.
FYI, I found this pic on GoogleImages, and I have no idea where it came from.My apologies to the creator. It's adorable, isn't it?
