Bats in the Belfry
It's a winning combination to have writing partners who crack the whip in my face now and then. Although I do think both Methodius and Heidi can be all talk and no action when it comes to threatening me with deadlines - at least they've never made me swim with the sharks.
Heidi is a really sweet deal but Methodius is as sly as a fox and sometimes slicker than snot on a door knob. But I know they'll both stick with me and my writing quirks come hell or high water. They just want to help me see the Big Picture and not get my knickers in a knot.
Besides, you can't learn to swim without getting in the water! Hopefully I'll soon be clucking and bucking with the other hens.
Before you think I have bats in the belfry, count up the cliches and give me your best shot. Don't wait for the ink to dry - if you snooze, you lose. But if lady luck shines on you, you'll get bragging rights and your just desserts. (I make a mean banana bread).
