There. I said it. I sat on the couch and held my swollen-eyed two-year-old (in-between watching her dress the dog in my clothes).
Currently I have six dire situations calling to me, not the least of which is, dog hair so thick it could be mistaken for a mink coat.
I. Am. Overwhelmed.
Know the feeling?
That’s how your reader feels when you give her too much information in one sitting. For instance, if you’re writing a magazine article about 14 Ways to Love Your Husband.
Um... 14? Could you give me two? Or three?
And maybe you could narrow it down even more? Like, three ways to have a sexy marriage?
Just sayin’. ‘Cause right now, if I could have two or three ways to make this house feel like it’s not on the verge of being condemned... I’d be all over that.
