Friday Letters


Dear Husband...thank you for springing into action this morning when I woke up at way to early o'clock telling you, "I don't feel good." I know I infringed on your pre-work alone time ritual. Thank for you for setting up my little sickie cave on the couch and bringing asprin complex and a vitamin. Also thank you for kissing me on the forehead even though you really didn't want to go anywhere near me.

Dear Mom...thanks for bringing the plague with you when you visited. We haven't had a plague outbreak in our apartment in a while so it was nice of you to think to bring that from Germany.

Dear Daddy...I really hope you don't get what ever mom has. 

Dear NaNoWrimo...I don't have a plot yet. I keep thinking of plots that would be way better as non-fiction books. This is not good. I am tempted to plan my novel solely around things I've adopted from the forum. 

Dear NaNoWriMo plot...I seem to have misplaced you. Could you make yourself known to me.

Dear Travel guide're kind of awesome. I like you.

Dear Zombie Snack...thank you for trying to pass some playdoh to your Uncle Johnathan through the webcam. That made he heart happy in a way I haven't seen in a while.

Dear Bestie...thanks for the Hello Kitty. Furthermore, Johnathan thanks you for not sending 6 of them.

Dear fondue...I love you more than people loved you in the 70's I think. It makes me happy that you've become my new fall comfort food. 

Dear Switzerland....thank you for inventing fondue. 

Dear Travel Writing Course...oh the direction and inspiration you have given me. And the reminder that I STILL have an issue with flipping tenses when I write. I seriously thought I was cured of that in my 20th Century Novel course with Dr. Rose. Guess not. Also thanks for reminding me that the everyday is just as important as the spectacular. 
Dear Friend I skyped with for 2 will all be okay. Not right away. Not this instant. But eventually.


  1. I am jealous of your travel writing course - I would love to take one. And I it's true - I am also guilty for flipping around my tenses when I write. How do you break free from that?

    1. When I figure it out, I'll let you know!! I have to read everything out loud to even catch them.

  2. Oh, NaNoWriMo! I'm thankful I found my plot - well, I had my plot. The characters had yet to start talking to me. It was annoying. But they did, last week and now we are rolling. Mostly.
    Husbands who take care of sick wives should get a medal. It's so rare. Mine did early this week and I was grateful.
    Also, why don't you want to write a non-fiction?

    1. My non-fiction concept would require a whole lot of leg work first. Leg work I'm totally willing to put in, at some point but just don't have the time to put that together for NaNo. So it's not like I don't WANT to it's more like I'm not ready to.

  3. Eeeek hope the sick bugs dont ruin your weekend and everyone is feeling better soon. Owww Zombie Snack what a cutie!

  4. I hope you feel better soon. Sounds like you've got a good husband there to take care of you while you're ill.

  5. Cute post, I never knew fondue came from Switzerland!!
    I'm a new follower :)
    I'd love for you to stop by my blog and follow along!
