This week, Susan Scott Shelley has set us a fun topic:
You've been gifted with a super power. Which would you choose? Why?
If you’ve joined me from the awesome Victoria Barbour, welcome!
Okay – super powers – what would I pick? I’m going to be sneaky and pick two – one for day to day and one for writing.
For my day to day super power, I want to be able to clean my house by looking at it. Just imagine – I’m sitting at my desk, working away at my next great novel, and I spy a speck of dust. With one blink (or maybe a wiggle of my nose, like a certain genie) it vanishes. Yes!
The thing with cleaning is that I love having a clean house – I just don’t want to have to work to get it. There are so many other things I’d rather be doing than sweeping, vacuuming or dusting. I’d a tidy person, in the sense that I don’t like clutter. Everything has its place – it’s just covered in dust.
For my writing super power, I want to be Perfect Plotter-Woman! I’m in the midst of planning my next manuscript, so I’ve got a spreadsheet going with each scene listed. The thing is, I have great ideas, at least initially. But then I start thinking things like “wait, does that even make sense?” or “why the heck would they do that?” Because I am a plotter by nature, I can’t just shrug off those questions. I need to know where my story is ending before I begin, but it is just so hard!

Thank you for a funny post, Super Plotter Woman! A spreadsheet, huh? I definitely need to get more organized :D

It gives me an illusion of control, Raine, even if it isn't real control. :)

To be honest, I think I want the cleaning one more than the plotting one...
