You know, I still have people telling me how much sentence-diagramming rocks? You people got issues, man.
Onto the next thing. By way of a writing update, here’s some wisdom from Mr. King:
It seems to me that every task, even things we just love doing, has some component that we just don’t look forward to and grind our way past because the entire task is enjoyable on balance, even if that one part of it stinks. For me and writing, it’s proofreading. Full-on editing, I like, but proofreading is like a weeklong trip in the company of Ms. Dully McDullerson. Important and essential work, but I’m never gonna enjoy it. (Plus, reading the book basically twice in two months is tough, although there is a benefit in that I’m bursting with ideas for the future volumes in the series now, which is nice.)
So there’s the question: what’s the “dull dreary drudgery” part of some task that you otherwise love doing?
