You Know It’s Time for a Break When…

I’m still slogging through the manuscript, and my mind is starting to play tricks on me.  I’m using a red pen to mark the copy of the manuscript I’ve printed out.  It’s transparent, and it’s the kind where the ink fills up the entire shaft.  As I’m writing, I notice the red liquid sloshing around in the pen, and it occurs to me how much it looks like blood….  I think I’ll go see if there’s an episode of Iron Chef on the TiVo.

    Came here from the wordpress blogroll on writing and I had to leave a comment because your post made me laugh. Was it a gruesome scene you were working with, or did you just feel like you were literally leaving everything on the page? Or perhaps just spacing out… I’m a southern california aspiring author too. So, hi!
