Turn and face the strange cha-cha-changes ...

There are lots of changes going on around here. Some are good, and some are wait-and-see. What's change? Glad you asked. Here are some definitions I've been batting around this week:

Change:
1. coinage in your pocket (probably given to you by a cashier after you bought something)
2. what's going on in sruble's world right now

Changes:
1. brought about by revisions to your manuscript (sometimes based on critique group or editor feedback, and sometimes because your brain thought up something better)
2. what an eraser does to your drawing (digital or on the end of a pencil)

Changing:
1. done in a small room at a clothing store (sometimes there are mirrors, sometimes not)
2. out of clothes and into pajamas before bed (also out of PJs and into clothes in the morning)

Changed:
1. what your painting is after a transformative process of creativity (try saying that 5 times fast!)
2. what your character should be at the end of your story

Change can be good or bad, but it's almost always stressful. Chocolate and Snood help with that ... or maybe not. I guess it depends on how much you indulge.
