“So what? All writers are lunatics!”

Rayven’s Keep officially launches today.
Did you notice how calmly I said that? I was so impressed I stopped for a moment to read it again. Yep, a nice rational sentence. Even better, If you could see me right now you would notice I am going about my day appearing as if nothing out of the ordinary had happened. I am sure you are amazed and a little impressed by my self-restraint, right? Me, too!
So, why do you keep glancing at the quote at the top of the page? Admit it, I know you are curious. Okay, fine…I’ll tell you. Have you ever seen the test with the dancing woman? (http://tinyurl.com/n4p9z8) The one where if you see her turning clock-wise you are using your right brain – the creative side, and if you see her turning counter-clockwise you are more analytical? Don’t tell anyone, but I can make her dance either way. How cool is that!
Still don’t understand? All right, I’ll tell you more. If you could look inside my head right now – ignore the clutter, please – you would notice right away that the left side of my brain is going about its day like it is any other day. But, the right side has been taken over by a 5 year old jumping up and down, doing cartwheels and a crazy child version of an end-zone dance. She is squealing with delight and, well, running amok. Lefty is trying to rise above the noise and be professional, but 5-year old is having none of it. It’s war in there people!
Crap! My right eye just started to twitch. Never mind, I will manage. Is that a goofy smile on my face? Say it ain’t so! I can do this, really – I can do this….
Who am I kidding? Rayven’s Keep officially launches today!!!!!! Squeee!
