In one hand he held a pair of sharp silver scissors and in the other, being gazed at with a ferocious glare was my . . . MANUSCRIPT.
No wonder I get jumpy about writing something when all I can see is the vivid image of my internal editor. If anyone else happened to open my sliding door and gaze in the room, all they would see is a slim teenage girl gazing with a frustrated ferociousness at a black laptop that was also blaring forth some supposed inspirational Christian pop and rock music.
The delete key on the small keyboard seemed just as frightening as the sharp silver scissors but even scarier was the looming deadline on the cheap calendar hanging overhead. With a sigh, I flicked back to the correct document and began to gaze at the double-spaced lines galloping endlessly across the page. Perhaps that delete button really was a God-given invention to prevent waffle and unnecessary words from making their way into the public arena.
