And now I have a deadline for writing that story.
Because I’m church camp counseling for some adolescents starting Saturday and I gots to be done done done with this story before then. So, 5-10k words will be coming out of my ears, brain and fingertips by Tuesday. This is my plan in order to edit rounds one, two, three, by Friday and then beg the Grand CL — those letters could stand for any number of things including Coolest Lung, Clapping Llama, or Crazy Laugh, none of which would make sense but all of which are possible — to read and edit round 4 while I am far far away on the banks of Lake Flathead.
It sounds like I’m making this stuff up, right? But CL is a real person who likes me enough to read and edit things that I write even when not required to (sort of like some of you), and Lake Flathead is a real place named for a native American tribe. There is even some land in the middle of it called Crazy Horse Island. And the water is really cold. Something of which I am sure I will be reminded when said adolescents decide to go swimming and I am required to chaperone.
Yep. Now you know what’s up.
Also, it’s my cousin’s birthday. He’s 19, which is a really exciting age. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
