Hair gone wild…

Blog Quickie — some good writerly advice.

Once upon a time today, Elen the Writer trudged to the kitchen for a good soap & rinse of her hair. She wrapped it in a towel, staggered back to her office, and plunked herself down to finish the damn book! — the piece of writing advice that has been No. 1 on the charts since writing began. Just ask any published writer.

Here’s a second piece of advice. It should at least be No. 5 on the charts. Don’t become so focused — while you spend the next hours working out how you’re going to get Heathcliff off the moor, or heating up the keyboard with that steamy Ted & Alice bedroom scene you’re pounding out — that you forget about your towel-turbaned hair.

Unless, of course, you want your hair to look like this —

 

Spring Chick Gone Wild

Yeah. You should get air miles with this. Just sayin’.

  2. Mine’s not bed head either. It’s the exact same thing you did. I leave the towel on my wet hair then get distracted by other things. This is why most people see me with my hair up. I don’t have time to wet it down and restart the process. That chick is cute. Even Yoda doesn’t look so spikey when he has his shower. 😀

  3. Hey Bubbles – LOL. Sometimes I just like to wash my hair from the bottom up. So, I lean over the sink. And, the sun from the kitchen window feels great. 🙂 Haven’t you ever done that? I cleans it all up afterwards. 😉

  4. Good explanation Elen! No, I haven’t tried that one before. I guess you haven’t LIVED until you wash your hair in the kitchen sink! 🙂

  5. Hi, Elen!

    Oh, my, but my hair was chickadoozy this morning when I woke up and looked in the mirrored panel LOL Must have been because I had that vivid dream featuring a hottie fiction hero 🙂 Yum and then some. Lickalicious! Wowza, but I put the pen in fast forward once I found the writing tablet. Always keep a pen and tablet on the bedside table for recording dreams. Talk about panting perfect before a girl had a chance to grab her first cup of morning coffee. Dreams have definitely delivered me many steamy scenes I’ve later used in fictional stories. I shrugged off the bed head and made a beeline for the computer. While the coffee perked I typed out several pages. Finished over a chapter before I filled the mug and sat back down to delve deeper into the hottie’s fantasy scene with the story’s heroine!

  6. I’m thinkin’, Miss Shawna, that you got more out of your “chickadoozy” hair than I did! 😉 Sounds like you had a Type A productive dream there. Yes, I keep a pen and pad by the bed, too. Otherwise, you can forget that great bit of plot before you even hit the button on the coffeemaker!

    Much cheer.
