Writing Can Be Murder

Ten things I wish I could do

Filed under: Uncategorized — jenniferelbaum @ 1:45 pm

This isn’t my Top 10 list, just the ones I’ve been ruminating about today: 

1) Make small talk.

2) Enjoy small talk.

3) Play a musical instrument — maybe a harp or a lute

4) Enjoy cleaning

5) Be naturally organized

6) Be more diplomatic

7) Travel the world (only the parts I want to see — there are plenty of places I have no desire to visit — Siberia comes to mind)

8) Steal Harry Potter’s invisibility cloak

9) Have Stephen King as a critique partner

10) Write a sentence like this (This sentence was in an email a friend sent to me about the first chapter of one of my WIPs. While it was meant to be complimentary, it made me feel like a hack because she wrote such a beautiful sentence.): The dream was chilling and its chill leaked into the quiet of the rest of the chapter.
