Ok, really, this is mostly a howdy to Helen, who is the only person who regularly does Turn-a-trope Tuesdays. Hi, Helen! ;)
Obviously, I did *not* get around to posting a Turn-a-trope yesterday, despite my best intentions to do so. Work was, well, work, and it had me here over late, as is happening more and more lately. Because of that, I didn’t get the time to go home and find a good trope, as is my usual Monday or Tuesday evening routine. By the time I did get home, I was tired and unmotivated.
Part of that lack of motivation is from just being busy – you all know, because Og knows I talk about it a lot, that my life of late has been super duper jam packed with activities. Right now, I’m not looking like I’m going to have a free weekend till sometime in October. And my evenings are fairly packed as well, often with obligations that I have no choice to beg out of.
The other part, though, is that I don’t know if anyone is getting anything out of this, other than Helen and I. And while I absolutely adore Helen’s writing (seriously, people, if you haven’t been reading her stuff, GO READ! She is a wonderful writer and her stories constantly amuse and impress me), I hate that I feel like I’m letting her down with delays and such, because I’m not convinced that this is such a hot idea after all.
So, thoughts? Should I keep turning tropes? Should I try issuing a less daunting challenge? Maybe it would be better if I just focused on challenges that use tropes, and leave the option of turning them up to the author? That might make it a bit less intimidating for writers to give it a shot. What do you say, WordPressland?
