Writing Neurotic Strikes Again: Your Blog Could Be At Risk

BREAKING NEWS:  Writing Neurotic is on the loose. 

(In the unlikely but fortunate event that you’ve not had an encounter of your own, click here for background documents.)

Authorities had sentenced her to silent detention at a Guantanamo she couldn’t hack, but released her recently due to excess verbage at the facility for terrorist editors and enemy censors.

Please be warned.  The blogosphere is at risk.  Its borders have been breached.

  1. Lol, Kathy. That’s incredible. I had no idea she was on the loose! Thanks for the warning. I’ll keep my eyes peeled for her–she is not welcome in this neck of the woods until at least August 7th.

    I hear a glass of red wine and some beautiful cello scares the bejeezus out of her. At least, that’s what I’ve used in the past to ward her off. Good luck out there, Kathy!


  2. Oh, I hate the writing neurotic. She’s such a pain in the you-know-what! Inform her she is not welcome there and send her on her merry way. (Just not in my direction, please!) 😉


  3. Not to brag, but I have been told I am a fairly big-boned girl. Do I need to come to Haiti and take a sister out? Let me know if you need any help wrangling her. I’ll put my very best muscle tee on, and get to flexing!


  4. Let the writing neurotic barf up all the words she needs to. Let her know we are here for her. She shouldn’ t be locked away. ever.
    I’ll make the t-shirts and signs.
    protest in the square.
    it worked in Egypt.


  5. I was thinking the same thing WriterWoman61 commented about the typewriter. lol!

    AND I agree with Jane. Let the Writing Neurotic loose to word and roam at will. 🙂


    • Actually, I remember my mother having a typewriter like the one in the photo, and once read Jane’s comment, I couldn’t believe I hadn’t realized it myself. Writing Neurotic is only neurotic when I try to silence her. It’s so simple, really.


  6. I think I can help Tori with her smack down approach. (Not that she needs the help– I just want to belong.) Oh, who am I kidding? I’m going to find a corner somewhere and cower in fear! Please let us know when it’s safe to come out again. 😉


  7. Saw your post on planejaner that you hadn’t had many folks looking in on you today, and I know how disappointing that is, so here I am, and letting you know I’ve been here. And you are not alone: scraps of envelopes, printed-out confirmations of bills paid on line, etc. — even the odd fast-food napkin — have wound up with my scribbled notes on them. And I’ve been doing this for decades (in high school, I wrote a humorously-intended poem about the trials of being visited by the muses while commuting to school on the bus).


    • You are so sweet! Thank you——don’t know why things have been so ridiculously slow today.

      And you’ve had to deal with Writing Neurotic, too–scraps, envelopes, bills–you do indeed understand!

      Thanks so much for reading and commenting. You have brightened my Saturday.
