Baby, It's Cold Outside

Megan Bickel wrote a post this week about embracing your mood, whatever it is, and using it to write.  If you are grumpy, write about a grumpy character. "Carpe Grumpy!" she said.

Well, I have been freezing for days.    I feel like there is no circulation in my hands.  I get back under the covers instead of changing and going  to  he gym.  I take a hot bath, instead of working on story revisions.  (Who can type when they can't even feel their fingers?)

But today, I am going to take  Megan's advice and think freezing.  Carpe Cold!

Coldilocks and the Three Polar Bears?  (Can't do it, already have a Goldi story)
The Three Skiing Pigs? (Can't do it, already have a pigs story)
Shiverella?  (Can't do it... yeah, got one of those too!)

I'll go make a hot chocolate and keep thinking...

ADDENDUM:  Just got another one... Little Red Gliding Hood

Coldilocks and the Three Polar Bears! I love it!

Have fun brainstorming over cocoa. I think I'll go make some, too!

Hey Corey! Glad you liked the post! Thanks for the link! And good luck carpe-ing your cold! : )

Ha! First, I can relate. I'm freezing too. Second, good luck coming up with a "cold" story.

I'm the same way. My hands and feet are always cold and I live for naps and hot baths.

Maybe take your laptop into bed? I wouldn't advise the bathtub though - lol

Can I just say, YOU ARE ADORABLE?!! :-)

Snow...White. Okay, that one doesn't work.

Hansel & Brrrrr-tel. Okay, a little bit better. :)

Corey Schwartz said...

Snow White! Ha, ha... I was asleep on that one!

Those are so funny! I'm shivering right now, so this is all rather perfect for my state of popscicle-ness.

storyqueen said... know I would totally read Little Red Sliding Hood.


(I'm thinking maybe a Shawn White...wait for it....Little Red Sliding Head! Get head and all.....?)

Funny post, Corey!! I've been the same way -- just can't get warm no matter how many sweaters I put on or blankets I wrap around me.

Love all your titles!
