Day Three of the Blog Writing Challenge Brings us, “And the next thing I knew…”

My plan was to write something upbeat.  Witty.  Perhaps with an unexpected twist.  I could do this.  I could write something to be proud of.  Day three of the blog writing challenge would prove to be a good one.

I decided to take a quick peek at We Work For Cheese, just to be sure my subject was the right one.  Seeing Michael Whiteman-Jones had already posted, I clicked on his link and began to read.

And the next thing I knew, I was packing up my laptop and calling it a day.  Who can write anything after reading such face falling off brilliance?

Note to self.  Never read other’s posts before writing your own.  All of you are JUST TOO GOOD!

Now…. Where is my fake Barbie?

  • Aw. He’s not THAT good, you know.

  • Ron

    Well, now you have me curious to read his post, Katherine. So I’ll have to stop by and check it out.

    But girl, you’re an AWESOME writer too!

    Have a SUPER Sunday….X

  • I didn’t have a clue why he was rambling about his face falling off. Is this some kind of pop culture thing-a-gig I missed? You really did a helluva job with this picture. It’s so much more more tolerable that MWJ’s.

      Hey, Hat Girl, I think this is a case of the Hat calling the Lizard…..

      Shit. This isn’t working.

      • Ahahahahahaha! You really freaked me out with that picture. I read the back story on FB and that was fascinating. I liked both the original and edited version of the 1st picture you did. What caused you to choose that skeleton head to edit? Surely there had to be less gory ones in the comics that you could have mucked around with and created a thing of beauty.

  • You are an amazing writer – don’t sell yourself short because of MWJ. Remember we only have to impress Nicky/Mike…not that difficult…c’mon think about it…

  • You have got to stop sucking up to Mike, Katherine, you’ll give him a big head. 😉

    • mikewjattoomanymornings

      I think it’s wrong to use the words “sucking up” and “big head” in the same sentence.

  • I think you are all good on this challenge. Of course the minute you talked about Michael’s blog, I had to go over there and check it out…and subscribe…

    Sadly, I am like a dog being tossed a bone when it comes to blogs.

  • You sell yourself short, my friend. The first thing to come to my mind is your cheesy post, Floating Across The Breeze (I think). Talk about powerful! Comparing yourself to Michael is like comparing Jane Austen and Ernest Hemingway. Both incredibly talented, both incredibly different. 🙂

    • mikewjattoomanymornings

      I’m nothing like Jane Austen. Wish I was, tho. Then I’d be multi-orgasmic. Dear God, that would be fun.

      I second Nicky’s comment. Don’t sell yourself short! I’m a huge fan of your “Cheesy” post. I do admit that it is pretty intimidating seeing all of these talented bloggers writing about the same topic that you’ve been assigned for the day. I think I finally understand what it feels like for a woman to discover that somebody at a party is wearing the same dress as mine.

      Everybody wrestles with writing doubts on occasion. Come on back from those doubts when you’re ready, and I’m sure you’ll find yourself right in the thick of things, and kicking very much ass.

  • Katherine, I love ALL of your blog posts. So, there!

  • AAAAAAAHHHHHHHH! Little Michael! If MikeWJ doesn’t stop this soon, his face is going to fall off just like that!

  • I don’t (or rarely) read others’ posts first. If I did, I’d probably never post anything. As for your posts – you are right up there. Don’t worry so much or your face may fall off.

  • Bah, everyone is great in one way or another with blogging. Keep it up and it’s all good!

  • mikewjattoomanymornings

    Well, my face is red. Or would be if I had one. I don’t know what to say except thank you, and you’re obviously drunk or stoned on pain killers. I wish I was, too, actually.

    • mikewjattoomanymornings

      By the way, I thought your first few posts were very moving. I felt ashamed for being so shallow, to be honest.

  • Cadeaux

    Hell, I don’t even read the posts AFTER I post mine, either! 😉

  • MalisaHargrove

    Katherine, don’t let him get into your head! Don’t do it. He will pack his bags and move into your head and won’t leave. Just don’t read his stuff until this whole writing marathon is over. He’s good. Dammit, he’s good. But we are women. We will prevail! 🙂

  • Cadeaux

    Katherine. This one? I read it – I commented. I guess we all obsess with Mike’s face in one way or another. 😉
    BTW…I tried to find an address to write you privately – but I didn’t see one. You can contact me at Cadeaux@aol.com – I have something to ask.
