It's Not Working, Dorothy.....

"Writing is the art of applying the ass to the seat."  --Dorothy Parker.

Well, I'm here to tell you, Dorothy. My ass is firmly planted in my computer chair and nothing. But nothing. Is happening, writing-wise.

I've been plenty busy; but I haven't been writing, least of all artfully writing.  I've ordered a book about Cleopatra, browsed wooden puzzle organizers, read about everyone's lives in the whole facebook world, played and lost and cussed at Candy Crush, wondered how the semi on I-84 crashed and spilled it's tank of raspberry puree and what became of the puree since it happened just across the river from me, and........ y'all get the idea.

I think if I want anything productive to happen at all today, actually I'd better get my hindquarters OUT of my seat. See you tomorrow.

She forgot to add, "...with a typewriter."

As an aside, if you haven't installed Candy Crush on your iPhone - it plays nicely - but it's worth going to the online copy as well because you get more access to free boosts there.

Aww my favourite poet and I'm late to comment. It's the Australia Day long weekend here. This is my all time favourite and great comfort Dorothy Parker poem...
"My land is bare of chattering folk;
The clouds are low along the ridges,
And sweet's the air with curly smoke
From all my burning bridges."
