lumpy chapters and painted ceilings.

a conversation overheard while two souls painted a basement ceiling...

him: so where's chapter 11?
her: i don't know.
him: 'cause you haven't put up a chapter since march 30.
her: [staring]
him: yeah, i check these things.
her: but we've come to a slow part of the story and i don't know how to write it. once sweet girl arrived, life got very exciting again.
him: every story has a slow part. you just gotta get through it to get to the good stuff.
her: but it's all commodes and percocet and recliners and coloring books and lots of do you write that?
him: you just do. 'cause it's all part of the story. just lump it all into one chapter if you need to.

lumpy chapter to come...

lumpy and bumpy is great in my book - I mean it will be great in YOUR book :) and really it is the slow boring parts that make you really love and appreciate everything else... right??? Otherwise I don't think I could get up and go everyday - I just know that it is because I will have the other things later... Rambling - tired...
