But thinking back, I get nostalgic. Thinking about all that productive writing time. The days when Holly Cupala and I played Let's Write 5000 Words Today. A fun game. Anyone want to play sometime?
Well, those 5K days created this strange morphing of the cracking of the whip. Werplash! Until somehow it turned into a licorice lasso. (Yah, I'm not sure exactly how that happened either.)
When I was in great need of additional motivation in December, the La La Challenge was issued. The big prize? The licorice lasso. Oh, yah! Coveted, I tell ya.
Except that the big prize was never formally awarded.
It was about time! Or at least that's what the big winner, Martha Brockenbrough, said to me when I finally handed over the prize. Well, no. That's a fib. I just added it for a little drama. BUT she should have said it.
Sound the horns. No...crack the whips. Swing the lassos! And congratulate, Martha!
How 'bout that lasso? Is it the tiniest, saddest thing you've ever seen?
So I gave her two plus many multi-colored strings. Hopefully they will help her wrangle up many colorful, yummy words.
I think it all stared to go to her head. Or maybe it was just working...
Thanks for always being inspiring, Martha!
