Five Weird Habits

OK, Esther (September Skies) tagged me and I guess I need to fulfill my end of the bargain, but I'm not going to tag anyone else because I run out of people to tag!


The Rules (borrowed from Joanne's blog): The first player of this game starts with the topic “five weird habits” and people who get tagged need to write an entry about their five weird habits as well as state this rule clearly.

So here are my five weird habits (I'm SO going to regret this):

1. I bite my fingernails when I'm thinking, like now, when I stop typing to think about what I should be typing. LOL. But I don't really chew on my nails. I just nibble, kind of grazing my teeth against the nails.

2. I do not make notes on any of my WIPs. Nope. Not even a piece of scrap paper. Everything is in my head so when I die, everything goes with me. There won't be any "author's secret notes." I do, however, leave simple notes in the WIP files themselves, something like "{need more descriptions of horny pigs}" or "{rewrite the whole f*cking chapter}." I do take notes when I'm at a meeting or a seminar or something, but my notes are mostly pictures. Have you heard of "mind-mapping"? Something like that.

3. I have a bad habit of clearing my throat, a lot. I wasn't aware of it until a beloved mentioned to me. Blame it on my allergies, and I refuse to go to the doctors and take shots.

4. I have to have soup at least once a day. It doesn't matter if it's in the morning, afternoon, evening, or late at night. It doesn't matter if it's just cabbage in hot water or Campbell or gourmet soup. It doesn't matter if it's Italian Wedding or beef stew or Chinese winter melon or miso. It doesn't matter if it's sweet or salty or sour. But it has be to HOT. I can't stand cold soup. I must have hot soup.

5. I comb my hair with my fingers. I rarely use a comb.

I'm not so weird, after all...

Doesn't seem weird to me at all. I love mind mapping. I keep telling myself to invest in some software but I can't decide which one to get.

Have you tried The Brain? Awesome -- it's not really mind-mapping, but it's a very cool tool for organizing thoughts and notes and information...

Great stuff, Ray. I love mind-mapping. Hmm Now, if I can just find the map. :D

I don't need no stinking map, or direction! I'm NOT Lost.
