Musings Make Motivational Moments

Since I had some random thoughts this week, I figure I'll end the week with a few M ones.


Michael Myers: I hear this name and think of the killer from Halloween. However, there are real people named this. Who could name their kid after a murderer (even a fictional one), because I couldn't. I mean, who says, 'I'm going to call you...Michael. Yes, Michael Myers. What a perfect name for my sweet angel.' Yep, that's not weird at all.

Milkmen: What happened to them? I know some places actually still have them, or they have been brought back---Do you have milkmen in your area?

Mario: Why is he the star? What's wrong with Luigi? I mean, Mario is okay and all, but Luigi has always been my favorite. And in all actuality, once Yoshi came on the scene, he won me over. I love my original Mario Bros, but the later game variations with Yoshi were fun.

Money: I'm one of those people who hate money. Sounds strange? Oh well. I hate how 'important' money is. I hate that we have to have money to live. I hate that the amount of money one has, determines their worth. It's ridiculous. I know money is important because that's the way of life, but I hate that life has to be that way.

Mom: This is such a strong and important word. Moms do so much and put up with so much. Take a moment to appreciate a mom in your life, they're VIPs.

Moist: Perhaps it's the books I read, or the gutter my mind likes to frequent...I don't know why this word popped into my mind.

Moving on...

MS: Funny story here...I was talking about my MS and how it was really starting to irritate me and how frustrating revisions were. The person I was talking to asks me why I felt the need to discuss my monthly woman thing with them. Yeah, awkward moment, for them. After I laughed at them, why would I be talking about that? And what the hell would I mean if I was talking about that and said revisions of my MS (I'm not sure how to revise that other thing )? Hello non-writers out there who don't know (or even new ones who may not know) MS=Manuscript. So, the person was a little embarrassed but we both ended up with a good laugh in the end.

Much: As in this post has too much going on.

Many: As in this post has too many words. OR as in how do people end up with too many words in their MS? Mine has too few, I've been having to work very hard at adding more. I'm still only just over 62k, and being that it's a Paranormal Romance, that puts me at least 18k short.

Okay, I'm done.

Happy Musing :)

Moms are awesome, I never watched Halloween so the name reference would have been lost on me, no milkmen, and the MS conversation sounds like a hoot!

Nice to "meet" you! I'm a writer mom with virtually schooled kids. Say hi if you visit me!

Alex-I know, right? It's crazy.

Tyrean-What? No Halloween? It's one of my favorites...I've seen at least 30 times, lol. And the MS convo was a hoot! :)

Kelly- Nice to meet you too. Thanks for stopping by :)
