Sure, I’ll Just Whip Up a Couple of Drafts!

Tonight’s Zero to Hero challenge is a doozy.

Today’s assignment: look back over what you’ve published. What have you been most proud of? What are the common threads? Which have been most popular? Create and save at least two draft posts with ideas that come from those.

And why not?  It’s not like I have nothing else going on.  At least two draft posts…  Sure.  I’d be happy if I could finish the load of laundry I started last Wednesday.

No problem.  Two drafts.  Let me just get my kids to stop tap dancing on top of the piano.

Two drafts did you say?  The girl child just expressed an interest in gymnastics from the top of said piano.  But I’ll get down to those drafts.

When asked for a topic for either of these two drafts, my son just explained that I could write a story about his goldfish, Goldie (or Goldie II, Goldie Jr., Goldie Meir, and/or Goldie-Clone, take your pick).

Have I made my point?  In all seriousness, both of you (my faithful readers) are aware of my ongoing travails involving an actual draft post that has sat in my draft folder since late December 2012.  I’ll get to it.  I promise.  Right after I compose my next post.  It’s called “900 Ironically Metaphorical Simili-tastic Excuses to Block Yourself from Writing”.

In the meantime, here’s a shot of me and our favorite cancer-warrior, Wilma, as we celebrated her birthday a few days early with a trip to the Chickasaw casino up in Oklahoma.

  1. A piano is a wonderful place for tap-dancing. A ready-made stage, in the centre of the room!
