A Post About Nothing

Ra ra ra-aaa-aaa. Lady Gaga is stuck in my head. It's almost noon and I'm barely done with my first cup of coffee. I need to get a lot done today. I've got a lot of articles and assorted rubbish on my hard drive that needs to be printed out and shipped off to possibly be published. I've decided to give this whole freelance writer life a serious shot. It's overwhelming though. I've been feeling a lot like Bambi in the 1969 short animation "Bambi meets Godzilla." Poor Bambi doesn't have a chance in that film. But I digress. Maybe if I drink another cup of coffee out of my giant Chesire Cat cup that Steve brought me from Disneyland, the world will seem brighter. Or maybe I'll just become even more anxious. Whatever. Maybe I'll just return to my daily Craigslist surfing. There are some good things on there today.
Of course, there are also some ridiculous things:

Need mass of pirates, zombies, ninjas and cylons for production shoot.
Will provide blood, booze and food.
Must provide own costume, be able to lift 30lbs and sprint short distances.
Respond with relevant info- skills/strengths and previous experience in related career tracks. Prior convictions okay.

Okay, so I'm sitting here laughing at that post, but really I'm just secretly sad I don't own a ninja costume. Maybe I could make my own zombie costume. All I need is oatmeal all over my face and ketchup dripping down my neck, right?

Bleck. It's official - this is a post about nothing. I will do something productive today! I will! Just you wait. I'm gonna kick into high gear starting...now. BAM!

Over and out, amigos. I'm off like a herd of turtles.


  1. I love your mug! And good for you trying the freelance thing - I am far too terrified of rejection to try.

  2. I'm terrified of rejection too but I'm going to try it anyway. Dude, you're a good writer - you should try it too. We can motivate each other by having a race to see who can get published first. :P

  3. Girly - Want the link to the Craigslist ad so you can be a pirate extra for free booze? Hehe. :D

    Allison - I'm shooting for magazines. I've got a lot of different topic ideas and some publications targeted, but it's still overwhelming. Especially when I thumb through my Writer's Market book and see the hundreds of publications out there. It's hard to know where to start.
    Didn't get as much done today as I had hoped I would. *sigh* There's always tomorrow.

  4. If you want/need a proofreader - feel free to email stuff to me. I don't mind looking over stuff for people.

  5. Posts about nothing are often the best.

  6. I've got only one thing to say and it doesn't have much to do with you, but I think it's worth it nonetheless: Bambi Meets Godzilla is my dad's favorite short film and he actually laughed out loud at it.


It makes my day when YOU leave me comments. :D
