Writing Can Be Murder

I got bonked on the head three times during my walk this morning. That must be some kind of record. It wasn’t like I was standing under an oak tree saying “Hit me baby, one more time!” Still, I was pelted by falling acorns three times.

 I’m thinking it was some kind of cosmic message.

In case you’re wondering: The pitch I was so excited about was a giant flop. Not the pitch, so much as the subject matter of the book.

I’m thinking that’s what the cosmic message thing was all about, but did it have to be so painful?



  1. I sometimes fall out of my bed when I’m sleeping. I don’t think that’s a cosmic message, (i just need a bigger bed.)

    Anyway, hugs on the pitch.

  3. I think I’d better explain that the pitch and rejection weren’t particularly painful. I was talking about the acorns — those things sting!

  4. Perhaps it was an angry squirrel rather than a cosmic message? Maybe the universe is saying ‘remember the mighty oak was once a nut like you!’ [Sorry, couldn’t resist that one.] 😉

  5. LOL — I rather like the idea of the angry squirrel chasing after me and bombarding me with his winter food

    And yeah, I’m a nut!
