Nagging Whisper is after me again.
She says (over and over) I need to finish revisions.
She says I need to write query letters.
She says I need to write the two blog posts I owe The Blood-Red Pencil for September.
She reminds me I need to promote the interview I did for Jean Henry Mead that will go up tomorrow at Mysterious Writers.
She tells me I need more exercise and should start going to the gym five times a week.
She pokes me hard and says don’t forget I’m teaching two classes for a mini-conference on September 18th and I still need to prepare handouts for the second class.
She says my windows are dirty.
She yells at me, “Finish the stupid revisions already.”
She slaps my hand when I reach for a square of chocolate.
She dangles my To Do List in front of my face and laughs maniacally as she points to the items I have not crossed off.
She reminds me I need a new photo for my website and blog, and, with a very snotty tone, says I should wear my glasses. She adds, “And smile this time.”
And finally, before she wanders down the hall with three of my favorite pens and a bar of my chocolate, she smacks me on the side of the head and says, “FINISH THE STUPID REVISIONS.”
So I’ll be working hard this weekend to finish revisions. I gotta get Nagging Whisper off my case.
