|There's more than one way to wax a cat...?|
(For those of you who have no idea what the heck I'm talking about: take this.)
I was freaking out because I didn't have a plot (and in case you don't know this: I always freak out over not having a plot), but last night, I got some quality help from some quality people and KA-BLAM, a lovely plot fell right into place!
These people deserve cookies. And I'm talking about the fresh, warm, gooey kind that release instant endorphins and make your knees weak from pure joy.
So now I may have little idea of what's actually going to happen, and of course no outline whatsoever, but since I have a basic plot idea, I'm as happy as a carp in a septic tank. (Got that quote of a bumper sticker once.)
Since I'm going to be pretty busy during November with my novel (which is unnamed as of yet...and btw, this is one of the reasons to join NaNo: you get to refer to things like "my novel" and that, my friends, feels lovely), I think now is the perfect opportunity to ask:
Who's up for guest posting?
I follow a lot of fantastic blogs by bloggers a heck of a lot more talented than me, so I know you guys are out there. How would you feel about guest posting here at Lantern of Lightning? I don't exactly have a theme going here, so any topic of your choice can be up for consideration. Although I say the funnier, the better.
Or: what if you're a reader that doesn't have a blog, but would like to be a blogger for just one day? I don't know; I might be heaping a world of trouble on myself for asking that question, but it sounded fun so what the heck. Maybe there's a good reason you're not a blogger, but you won't know until you try, right?
I mean, the worst that can happen is that you write up a blog post so horrible that it spirals you into a depression that makes you want to cut off your fingers from the terrible writing you've produced, which causes you to bleed out and for one of your loved ones to be fatally traumatized from finding you and rushing you to the hospital, where they say that they now have to amputate your arms and feet due to the extent of the blood loss you endured in your self-depreciating fit of rage.
I say it's worth a shot.
(If you're interested, and by "you" I mean you, sitting there reading this and pretending that I'm talking to one of the other readers even though I'm reaching out to you specifically from the depths of my soul, leave a comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. And thanks in advance!)
