A-Z Challenge Flip-Flops

     (First, did you find the eight editing errors in yesterday's post? Hope so. They are...
ect. - should be etc., ones' - should be one's, exhiliaration- should be exhilaration, endeavours- should be endeavors, are- should be singular, is, exageration- should be exaggeration, embarassing-should be embarrassing and exerpts-should be excerpts.)Now on the Flip-Flops.




We Flip-Flop Frantically as we Fortify our Frail Fresh drafts. 

 (FLIP) I’m Fabulous; got Fiction Fever. My Future Fame and  Fortune.
 (FLOP) I’m Fearful. A Fraud. A Freakin’ Failure. 

 (FLIP) I’m Fascinated with my Fulfillment From my writing. I’m in a Frenzy to Finish.
 (FLOP) I Flinch. I Falter at my Foolish First chapter.
 (FLIP) I Flit from First-rate to Flawless; the muse Flatters me. 
 (FLOP) I am a Frustrated Flop as a writer. I Fling this Feeble Fable Frantically into a File cabinet.

 (FLIP) I’ll just let these concepts Ferment a while for a Flavor like Fine wine.

 (FLOP) I can’t Fathom why I torture myself. I’m a Fake and a Fanatic.

 (FLIP) A Forceful Flood of words, Fugitives From my brain, Forge their way, Frothing and Foaming to my Fast Fingers. 
 (FLOP) A Flood of tears, I Flush. I’m Frivolous and Forgotten. 

FLIP-FLOP FINALE
 I Focus, I Flourish, I’m Fearless.

You did a fabulous job; how did you get in my head?! ;-D Oh, yeah, you are my sister(you said you would fit in with my family) Nice to meet YOU~

Comme ci, comme ça.
It is all swings and roundabouts in writing - half exhilaration and half fear. It is amazing how quickly I can flit between the two options. :)

Oh man, I've never looked at writing like sandles before. What a great analogy. Yes, I flip flop a lot.

Ellie said...

Gosh. Those flip-flops sure were conflicted! Loved this line 'I can’t Fathom why I torture myself'.

Thrilled to have found your blog and thank you for visiting mine.

What a fabulous post (only one "f"!) My flop is that I fear failure. My flip? I fancy fantasy. Yes, I'm changing my genre, I think (scared stiff!)

Thank you so much for posting on my blog - I'm glad I found you too.
