Significant Other Blogfest!
I came across this great idea for a fun blogfest over at: http://dlcruisingaltitude.blogspot.com/
Sounded fun and not too hard... well, that was until I tried to convince my husband to participate! ha. ACK.
The "rules" of the blogfest said, "...you’re not allowed to censor or coach them in anyway, we want the hard-boiled truth! The good, the bad, and the ugly! We’d really like to see them step out from behind the curtain and tell us a little bit more about you…and them. We realize this may take some coaxing on your part, but just think how much fun this will be. They have an entire month to organize their thoughts (and emotions), but the important part is that they won’t be alone in doing this."
Well, he did have the necessary time to think about it but still didn't write anything for the post. The blogfest also had a few questions that we could ask our spouses and simply post their answers. So, I went with that option! Here it is:
1. What food or drink is guaranteed to return your loved one to a good mood, even after a bad day writing?
Healthy portion of chocolate.
2. What one thing would you change about your others writing habits?
She would be able to tune out the family commotion.
3. How hard is it to sit by and watch someone you care for struggle to attain a dream...knowing there's very little you can do to help?
There's always something we can do to help. A listening ear... try to reduce distractions... Bring her plenty of water... There's always something we can do to help.
When I said, "Boy that is pretty short!" He said, "I'm not a writer."
Ah. Valid point.
