I'm not complaining, mind you. Very glad it's Friday for several reasons, not the least of which is that it's my free day so I allow myself to eat
Fridays are my writing days now. I've spent the morning listening to Ann Lamott interviews (I'm obsessed with her lately) and getting ready to SPANK the memoir. Next I'll go on a run, take some crap to the dump and then write like a writing super champ.
But right now I need to put up a post for Friday's Frequently Asked Question.
If you're new here, here's how this goes down: ask a question in the comments. Any question. About anything. People will vote on the questions that accrue by placing the word "ditto" under the question they most like. Whichever question gets the most "dittoes" I will answer in a post next Friday. And so on and so forth into perpetuity. It's not the most elegant system, but it does work.
Questions that get chosen tend to be somewhat short, very direct and clearly written. The earlier in the day you ask, the more time you have to get dittoes. Last week one question won by a landslide, but most weeks there is a near-tie broken by only one or two votes, so don't despair if your question isn't the first or hasn't gotten tons of dittoes really early in the morning. Also: many of the questions I've answered so far have won only after having not gotten enough votes in previous weeks, so recycled questions are a really good idea, actually.
Hmmmm... what else? Voting closes at 12:00. I might not turn off comments, but I will simply erase them in moderation after 12:00.
Also, thank you so much for your questions. Some of my very favorite posts have been written in response to a really great, thought provoking question. Thank you so much for making this experience a conversation, and a sharing of ideas. I'm so blessed to have this dang blog, and blessed by each one of you who visits.
All right, BRING IT.
(PS, does someone want to make me a FFAQ graphic? If you make me one and I like it and use it, I'll totally pimp you out.. I may even pimp you out if I don't end up using it. Email me at joshua (don't forget the "ua") dot weed at gmail dot com.)
