HATE it. You see, there is clutter in my living room - furniture, clothes, pretty much everything that was in my daughter's room. Don't ask me why I decided to paint her room ten days before Christmas. Insanity. Pure insanity. But, I'm happy to say, the paint is now dry (a beautiful smoky lavender color with white on the crown molding and doors). Her furniture is a dark maple color, her bed is a sleigh bed. I bought a quilt with lavender, dark purple, white, and sage green accents. It's so pretty. I want to live in there. The clutter, however, stares at me from my open office door, like some King Kong-sized pile of doo-doo. *sigh*
On the writing front, I've decided to write long-hand in a notebook. For some reason (the insanity thing again), I can't seem to write in my office (blogging and emails aside). I've gone from room to room with my laptop with some success, but now that's not working. So, thus the notebook. I plot all my books in notebooks, but I've never written a complete ms in this manner. I'm sure it depends on the size of your handwriting, but I've always wondered about authors who write their books long-hand and how many notebooks/pages they fill up for one book. I believe Gena Showalter (one of my favorite authors - if you haven't read her books, you need to!), writes her books this way. I may try it. :) I think it'll be a nice change for me. The last four books have all been done on the computer. Anyone else write long-hand?
