So I am cracking up still--one of the guys in my life thought that the dream about the Plodder that I put up here was about him. He was acting all weird. Boys, boys, if you are Warren Beatty we love the Warren Beatty but if you are not the things are not about you! It was kind of sweet though.
I really like writing up the little bits that show up and putting them up here--and I love it when a dream is a whole story. If I stick things into word docs on my computer I just forget about them, nothing ever happens. The blog is really fun in that it's not some heavy novel--it's like it's not all piling up and needing such hellish focus to get out into the world. But maybe it gets me in trouble! Oh well, I can handle a little trouble.
THe Plodder & the Lottery--I don't know what that was about really but not a person. More like the publishing industry, maybe, our whole story/media industry, and the lottery lady was the amazing women writers who take my classes or just in general who are plugged right into fabulous creativity right now. That's what I was thinking of--sort of like those 2 Tori songs "Teenage Hustling" and "Hoochie Woman" which use the language of a failed love story but it's really about an industry. (At least that is my take).
