When my friend MJ called me this last weekend to set departure times and sort out the last minute details out before we came to music camp, I had one all important question for her: "Do you mind if I bring my writing buddy?"
"What's a writing buddy?" she asked.
It's true that, depending on the situation, writing buddies can take many shapes and forms. In my case, this is my writing buddy.
Macbeth handled the trip to camp very well and was warmly welcomed by all the ladies in our house - even though we're all pink and don't usually enjoy the company of insect-like-creatures. And despite the fact that I still really need his opinions on word exchanges and his expertise on all things thesaurus, he decided to have some "quiet time" and shed his skin this afternoon. (I guess I bugged him a little too much.)
So this is Macbeth now.
Turns out music camp is the perfect place for a writer to do hard-core editing. Someone is always always practicing something, so there is usually lovely music wafting through our open windows. (And people wonder why I use a mute when I practice.:) Ahh . . . . loveliness. :)
