Today was the day when I hit that point in my WIP where I hate it. Where I think it completely sucks and I should throw the whole thing away. Where I think the whole foundation is weak and I'm sure everybody's going to read it and say, "Look at them plot holes! Good God, I could get a fleet of cruise ships through them!"
I've tried a new desktop blog editor, and it won't transfer what I've written on my laptop to my desktop. Which means I've got a real writing post for you guys, written a few days ago, which tells you how much I love writing and how I'm in the honeymoon phase.
When I finally get it up, understand it was written on Monday.
The honeymoon phase is over. OVER!
So let's talk about my favorite obsession lately: Ranger.
In Ten Big Ones, Stephanie Plum goes through Ranger's closet and drawers. He's got 13 pairs of black cargo pants, 13 black Range Man t-shirts, 13 black long sleeve Range Man shirts, 6 black hooded Range Man sweatshirts, 6 black sweaters, 1 black suit jacket, and 1 pair of black silk boxers.
I have got a serious crush on this guy.
Anyway, it reminded me of Erica Orloff, who only wears black to keep things simple.
My kinda person.
I wanted to get all the same socks, so losing one wouldn't matter, but every time I need more socks, they don't have my kind. So now I have an assortment of black socks. They've been washed varying amount of times, and are various shades of faded grey and purplish black. Even the matched socks don't match anymore.
Anyhow, it got me to thinking. What would I wear if I could simplify like that? No doubt I'd have 6 pair of black jeans and 13 pair of black yoga pants. Black on my upper half washes my skin tone, so I think I'd go for white on top. 13 white turtlenecks, 13 white t-shirts.
If I wanted to frill up, I could accessorize with scarves.
What do you think? Could you ever simplify your wardrobe like that?
