In the Words of Evanescence...

I'm going under!

Underground that is.

To finish revisions.

Because this is it. My last month to revise. If I take much longer I'll be forced to admit to myself that all I'm doing is stalling.

Okay, so I won't be completely underground. You can think of me more like one of those whac-an-animal kinda things--you know, those arcade games at Chuck E. Cheese's? Because I will be popping up. I'll tweet a little--how could I not? And of course I'll blog some, I mean I have some good posts coming up. For instance, Shannon seems to think it's time for me to make a Deal with the Universe.  And I'm going to give you guys input for what it should be, though there WILL be a couple of twists (dun dun DUNNN). I will definitely still be reading all of your blogs! I know my commenting levels have dropped, and they're going to drop some more, but I promise I'm still reading! I'm, like, the best LURKER ever.

So, with this post, I am officially giving my CPs and writing buddies permission to use the mallet on me if/when they think I'm online too much when I should be revising. Yikes!

Catch me if you can!!

  1. I hope I never see you on Twitter. I think I'll use the #whacksSara hashtag if I do. So, actually...I would like to see you there, because that would be kind of fun!

    Good luck with revisions!

  2. Hahahaha Dude, I totally thought that was your head actually inside the whack-a-mole game at first. Now that would have been awesome. Though as it stands, this picture is still pretty awesome.

    A deal with the universe, huh? This could get very ugly and utterly fabulous. I think you should make a deal that when you get your agent, you will run up some really long steps wearing sweats, and when you get to the top, you'll toss your arms up in a Rocky stance and shout out, "I am AWESOME!" And then whisper, "Carol is brilliant." Of course. AND you should videotape it all. Of course.

    P.S. I say awesome a lot, Awesomer.

    P.P.S. A deal with the universe that gives your followers control is remarkably insane and brilliant.

    P.P.P.S I fully expect to see a newly edited Shattered in my inbox on Saturday.

    P.P.P.P.S This is a lot of postscripts.

  3. Evanescence rocks! Okay, maybe I've fallen out of love with Amy Lee a little bit recently, since Charlotte Wessels has shown me some Twitter-love, but I still hold a tiny place in my heart for the first goth-rock-chick to rock my world.

    Wait, what was this post about? Oh. Er...

    Your deal with the universe should involve jello shots, probably. Vlogs and jello shots. And tattoos! Ooh! We should all get to vote on your next tattoo! Awesomesauce.

    *gets mallet*

    *lurks on Twitter*

  4. Good luck! I totally feel your pain. Sometimes you just have to disconnect to get things done and that's just how it is. :)

    Hopefully you'll have something awesome when you're all done!

  5. A little down time can be an awesome thing. I won't whack you with the mallet. ;) Enjoy and come back refreshed.

  6. Love Evanescence! Your lurker reference reminds me of the Friends episode when they're in Vegas and Phoebe fights with an old lady "lurker" at the slot machines. Ever see it? You must! Ooops, I think I just gave you another reason to stall... Haha, good luck with your revisions!!!

  7. You go girl! I am all in favor of your revision disappearance and Deal with the Universe time and lurkerness! :-)

  8. Wonderful reason to disappear, darl'n!

    Okay deal with the universe....You must do a toe touch at some point during your VLOG (not a still shot of you doing one, one where we get to watch - oh & I mean as in the Cheerleading jump not bending or stretching to touch your toes..unh unh... ;o) )

    Oh & I like the voting on the tattoo thing from Simon...could be fun...

  9. Ha ha! Great visual. I think I'm like that ALL time time. One friend said she wished she could have an impersonator. Me too. Then I'd have a MUCH better online presence. :)

    Good luck with your work!

  10. Hilarious picture!
    Good luck with your revisions.
    And weird I was just mapping out the likes of my main character and I was pondering whether Evanescence would be her favorite band!

  11. Love the photo and Evanescence!

    Best of luck with your revisions and happy underground hiding!

    PS-haven't visited in a while but love the feet photo...very cool tattoo!

  12. Get some work done! We'll look forward to your return.

    And we'll probably implement some kind of security system to avoid any mishaps with your lurking habit. ;o)

  13. I LOVE Evanescence. But more than I love Amy Lee, I love that picture of you as a whack-a-mole. *grabs mallet* I'm ready! Get to work!

  14. I LOVE Evanescence. But more than I love Amy Lee, I love the picture of you as a whack-a-mole. *grabs mallet* I'm ready! Get to work; I'm rooting for you!

  15. Best of luck with the revisions! I'll be interested to hear about you deal ;)

  16. Love the tattoo! And I gotta say, I admire your dedication. I can't get off twitter and facebook long enough to work on my WIP. Maybe I need to get me some CP's with mallets eh?


    P.S. You have an award over at my place.

  17. Good luck! Shattered sounds awesome, btw!

  18. Ha! that photo is hilarious! Good luck with your revisions!


Yay! I love when you have things to add :)
