I do actually have some real news to report. I've been extremely neglectful of my WIP lately. It wasn't simply procrastination, or a laissez faire attitude. No, I decided I hated the very sight of it and refused to touch it. Today, I've changed my tune. Suddenly. Inexplicably. I can't explain why, but I got out my box full of sticky notes about the revisions I wanted to make and -- and I've actually started making them.
First, to absolve myself of the heavy cloud of guilt surrounding me and giving me grief about my housekeeping standards, I cleaned my bedroom. Okay, so it was mostly a lick and a promise, but nobody's going to slap Bio Hazard tape around it now. That done, I sat down with my box and my stickies and went to work. It doesn't look as bad as I thought it would. I don't hate it as much as I thought I did. By the time I get all these notes out of the box and into the computer, I might even like it. A little. I'm doing the work, though. That's the main thing. I had reached the point where I thought I would never pick up this manuscript again, so I consider this progress. Of some sort.
The ghost ship Twisted Linguistics hoisted its Jolly Roger and went trawling for Words Gone Wild on the loose and managed to shanghai this crew:

legitimatly - An intimate inspection of legs.
the one I seek has alluded me - He's -- what? Talked about you?
Christians of differing dominations - This refers to a church-going dominatrix.
