I was off to a depressingly slow start with writing this morning when I got an email notification that J. Peterman had updated its “last chance” department. Among the items with drastically reduced prices were the stunning tiered skirt and the high collared blazer. I declared that if I reached 1200 words by 10am I was damned well going to buy them.
Thirty minutes later, at 9:50am, I had written 850 words, which put me over 1500 for the day, and I damned well bought them. And the blousy shirt that goes with the skirt, which may not look good on me, but it was worth a shot. So there. I have no idea where I’m going to wear the skirt or blouse (besides P-Con, obviously), but I have an unhealthy love for coats and can certainly justify *it*, at least, as something I’ll actually wear pretty regularly. So there.
I will now have to sell about 20 more copies of the short stories or Angles to cover my indiscretions, but just this once I DON’T CARE. So there. (Besides, at full price for the same indiscretions I’d have to sell nearly 50 more of them. So THERE!)(x-posted from the essential kit)
