I was just watching "Sweet Genius" on the FOOD Channel, a show where four chefs get to compete against each other each week for pastry genius Ron Ben-Israel.
In the second competition of the day, right in the middle of creating their fortune cookie/chocolate/ballerina inspired confections, the chefs were thrown a monkey wrench and given BLUE CHEESE as an ingredient to incorporate into their creation. Ugh! Well OMG. *just threw up a little*
After doing what was required and stressing over his project, one of the chefs had this to say as he stepped away from it: "My philosophy usually is when in doubt, don't touch it any more, because you'll probably just make it worse."
Heh. For a second there, I thought he was talking about a manuscript of mine.
I say apply this to your fiction writing, y'all. Wash. Rinse. And repeat. If nothing else, it's a sure-fire formula for less stress, and you just might learn to start trusting yourself more, eh?
No, not zombies.
This past Saturday, the weather got stupid and zoomed up into the 70s, which totally confused all the wasps in hibernation. They woke up, thought YAY, it's spring, and came roaring out to inundate our front porch and yard.
I swear, it was like a convention. They were everywhere. And we don't just have regular wasps down here, oh no. We've got those huge red angry mutant suckers with their back legs dangling down about a mile. Ugh. You do not want to get stung by that. Trust.
Thank God it's back to being 42 degrees this morning and we can get to our cars without running through a war zone.
