In an effort to make Throwback Thursday — #tbt — about writing, because when this blog first began it was all about writing, here’s a post about some sage writerly advice.
This be a blog quickie.
Hair Gone Wild…
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 —
Yeah. You should get air miles with this. Just sayin’.

Just keepin’ it real.
And my Throwback Thursday work here is done.
Today is a rush and a crush.
I’m having a rush and crush kind of Thursday.
