I've hit the Dulldrums.
There doesn't seem to be much to blog about at this moment... So, in order not to bore the decent public, I won't go on too long. Kids will be home from school for good in a week. I'm looking forward to it. I remember feeling that way last year, too. Must be a new phase of life I'm going through.
Also, about the toilets. I was thinking of my daughter the other day. She has a very melodramatic and angry reaction to toilets not being flushed. She's 12. Maybe she'll mellow out in the far future. But for now, the trauma of continually finding the toilet NOT flushed has left her jaded. And it's a big deal. I don't believe she'll ever be able to marry someone who has toilet issues or is careless in their toilet habits. The words deal-breaker come to mind.
It occurs to me that I don't have any characters who truly grate on each other's nerves. My characters, even when they are in conflict, often display my laidback temperament. [don't laugh, honey...I am laidback!] I would like to write a book in a vein of that annoying bickering that can both drive you crazy and make you want the MCs to get together. I have just the scenario, too. :D Yippeee! I love when a story develops while I'm not sitting in front of the computer.
So, what's your deal-breaker pet peeve?
