Erotica Cover watch introduced us to Man Candy Monday and I think it's a pretty good idea. Mostly because it's hard to come up with a blog topic on a Monday. For some reason, even though I'm a writer so days of the week shouldn't much matter, Monday strikes hard. There's stuff to do and somehow the chores and the writing have gotten tangled up together, as if getting a grad gift together and writing a short story are equally daunting.
So instead I go a blog hopping, and find that while I've been fussing about stuff some people are fighting the good fight. Some people have so many opinions. Yikes! And they're so freakin' eloquent.
There's nothing like a few pics of hunky men, or hunky men with curvy chicks, to soothe my psyche and remind me that yes, while the grad gift is important, the writing about sex is the thing.
Hey, it's what I do! So excuse me while I zip to the mall for paper and string and a proud mother card. That done, I'll be hitting the keys. There's plenty of time between now and the grad ceremony (afterwhich this gorgeous and brilliant kid of mine heads to Queens, where, as she puts it "It's gonna be great! Just think! There won't be any stupid people there!) to get some work done.
Still plenty of time, God willing, for everything.
