Yahoo hell

Tried to access some of my email this morning, and Yahoo is acting like my ex. Uncooperative and irritating.

So I'm piddling around with that this morning and waiting for um...five o'clock. *looking at computer screen and groaning* You eternity from now.
But it IS Friday. So that's all good.
Going to drop by the grocery store after work and pick up a few things. And since it doesn't look like it will rain, the chickens and I will go swimming Saturday. Sunday looks like mowing the lawn. *GROAN*
Man, if that isn't an all day thing. Ok. Actually two. But I'll still squeeze in a bit of writing. I'm doing the Big Mull right now. You know...when you mentally sift through characters, plot, and dialogue and see which direction you're going to take.
Plot? *snort* Are you kidding me? Tried it. Thought I'd have to slit my wrist with my pen. Just doesn't quite work that way for me. The basics are fine. But I cannot and will not map down everything that happens in my stories. That is akin to shoving bamboo beneath my fingernails.
*wincing* Yeah. Hell of a visual, huh?

So, I'm off to see the Wizard. Or oil a Tinman or something.
And no. That's not nearly as kinky as it sounds.

Are you ready for tonight's season premiere of Doctor Who?????

I'm with you, I just let my story go where it wants. No mapping for me either.

Snickers. Bamboo indeed. I can do an outline, usually a rough understanding of how many loose sections I'll end up with. But I can't do the gritty detail.
