Sometimes, you just need a laugh. Maybe it’s been a hard day. Maybe you received bad news. Maybe your to-do list is longer than a roll of toilet paper. Oh, and maybe you’re out of toilet paper. (That’s not good.)
I woke up this morning feeling grumpy. Probably because it was something like five-way-too-stinkin’-early o’clock and my cats were being spastic. I needed a quick pick-me-up, so I turned to something I know always makes me laugh: How It Should Have Ended.
Have you seen these videos? They are quick parodies of movies and point out plot holes or curiosities or quirky what-if issues. Just in case you could use a laugh too, here are a few of my favorites. Enjoy!
For more How It Should Have Ended videos, check out their YouTube channel — where you can get more smiles and potentially waste a lot of time. 😀
Each week, I hope I don’t waste time and have lots to show for my writing goals. Now let’s see if I can put a smile on my own face about my progress. Following is my update for A Round of Words in 80 Days, the writing challenge that knows you have a life — with my goals for the round:
1. Read 12 books. I finished book #7, Making Love in the Microwave (nonfiction), by Aja Dorsey Jackson, and I’m about 70% through #8, Spirit and Dust (YA fiction) by Rosemary Clement-Moore. Still doing fine on this goal.
2. Complete two drafts of short stories. Once again, I wrote a little more on one short story last week, but I need to focus on this goal this coming week. Meh.
3. Take care of ROW80 sponsor responsibilities. My guest post for the ROW80 blog, When the Book Isn’t Working, went up last Monday, and I did indeed check in with participants this week. Call it a win.
4. Edit at least once through Good & Guilty, young adult mystery. Absolutely no progress whatsoever this past week. *sigh* Not good.
This is the first week in the round that I’ve not had much to show with my goals. I need to refocus and hit it hard this coming week.
Have you seen the How It Should Have Ended videos? Do you have a favorite? What easily puts a smile on your face or a laugh in your gut? And how was your week?
