Being a woman is awesome. Sometimes it’s also painful. Shaving, waxing, plucking. Fun stuff. Usually when I get waxed I’ll do one thing at a time. If I’m getting my eyebrows done, I won’t get my upper lip area done at the same time. It takes me long enough to psych myself up for the one area to be waxed. I don’t know why either because I’ve got a tattoo and I plan to get another one this year. The first was semi-painful but not so bad. There’s just something about hot wax on my face that freaks me out I guess.
I do the same thing when I’m writing though. I’ll psych myself out and completely avoid writing a synopsis. Anything to get out of it. Wash my car, wax my car, dust the house. Hell, I’ll even wash the dog…okay I won’t go that far. That’s the hubby’s area of expertise. When I’m finished though, and it’s edited to death, I’m usually pretty impressed that I managed to condense an entire story to somewhere between two and six pages, depending on the length of the manuscript. Just like waxing, the end result is worth the pain. Though, I still don’t think I could ever do a Brazilian wax. The thought of it makes me break out in a cold sweat. I have friends who swear by them, but uh, no thanks. That's a little too far south for wax to go.
What do you hate doing or at least dislike doing, but love the end result?
