Today I am wonderfully relaxed.
After yesterday's shameless slacking, which must have been a disappointment to the blogging community that embraces this wonderful challenge, I nevertheless find myself refreshed and ready for the remainder of the month.
What challenge, you say? Nicky and Mike over at We Work For Cheese are running a 28-day writing challenge throughout February.
They're truly wonderful people, Nicky and Mike. I've said some bad things about them in the past couple of weeks, but I realise now I was wrong; they're warm, creative muses, supportive friends who bring out the best in us as writers.
If I had to do this challenge all over again, I would.
Some people may say that this is all just flattery, the sugary scribblings of a desperate man who would have typed anything while being coerced with a cattle prod by a crazy woman in a sound-proofed Montreal basement.
But some people will believe anything.
This introduction is dedicated to Ziva Moon, who knows a good build-up when she reads one.
Today, I shall attempt the impossible.
A blog entry in an hour.
Yes, not content with creating strange new worlds and life forms that even Captain Kirk would have steered clear of, I now crave a little simplicity. The most basic of things, and the hardest to achieve.
So, without so much as a flourish, but hopefully with a nice picture, I just wanted to relate something that happened last night. I'm even going to abandon my usual first person present narration to save time. Yes, writing in the past tense is much easier.
And I promise, no internal voices. No men in sacks. And no bears.
