Miss Snark Withdrawal - Day 2 - slowly coming to terms

Had a really busy day at work today, so not much time to mourn the end of the blog. Sigh!

Have to think of other things now to get this off my mind. At this time next week, I'll be packing for my trip to New Yawk Sitty for my writer's conference. I'm a nervous Nelly about this. Not because of the conference - because of the city! I'm a country girl at heart. I like the wide open spaces in the suburbs of Seattle. It's what I call country with conveniences.

I signed up for one of those 2 pages 2 minutes workshops. So now I'm stressing over my 2 pages. I have a 2 1/2 page opening on perspective before my first chapter. It's good - I think! So, do I submit the first 2 pages of that, or the first 2 pages of my first chapter? I'm going to send them to some of my friends and ask which one they like better - which one draws them in. Damn!

It probably doesn't matter. They'll probably laugh me out of the room. At least no one will know it's mine until after they have read and commented. That way I can just slip out the door quietly before I have to confess.

Anyway, I did come up with a new drinking song for the Nitwit's Lounge. Everyone sing along now!

(To the tune of "My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean")

Our Snarkie turned off her computer.
Our Snarkie has faded away.
Her minions are lost and so lonely.
We're still checking back everyday!

Bring back, bring back,
KY we're down on our knees.
Bring back, bring back,
Oh, bring back our Snarkie please!

I checked it three times today, just to see if she's as lonely as everyone else is.

Thanks a lot. Now I'll ahve that dang tune stuck in my head all day.

Em, I only checked it 4 times yesterday. Trying to withdraw slowly!

Travis, always glad to be of service. I'll see if I can come up with another catchy tune for tomorrow.
