RillaWriter: Good morning, Inner Edie!
Inner Editor: It’s only good if you tell me you’re not going to keep posting every workday this week.
RWriter: Then… Morning, Edie!
Inner Ed: That’s what I thought. Here’s the thing: I’ve already caught some really stupid mistakes since you’ve started this. One of them was using “new” instead of “knew.” Should this surprise me, Rilla? It does not.
RWriter: Well, isn’t that exciting!
Inner Ed: You’re not listening to me.
RWriter: You’re right, I’m not. Know why? Because this exercise is all about helping my Inner Editor take a backseat for a bit.
No hard feelings, right?
Inner Ed: Just remember this when the blog blows up in your face.
RWriter: When it does, you can purse your lips and say “I told you so” all you want.
Inner Ed: Oh, I will. And, by the way, I didn’t appreciate the post where you told the Blogosphere I misspell ‘copyright.’ That was between you and me.
RWriter: Sorry for admitting you’re not perfect.
Inner Ed: And you did a terrible impression of . It should be something like, “He wouldn’tses, Preciousss.”
RWriter: That looks stupid.
Inner Ed: And writing about Brain Teaser month doesn’t?
RWriter: I’m free-penning January, Edie. It’s meant to loosen up my literary tongue. I’m liberating my creative voice and freeing the artist—
Inner Ed: Yeah right. You hate it.
RWriter: Okay, so it would kill me if I tried to keep it up—
Inner Ed: And your blog readers would disown you…
RWriter: Maybe, but right now I think it’s kinda fun!
Inner Ed: You would. (sighs) Fine. You get this month, and I take next month—deal?
RWriter: We’ll see…
Inner Ed: I don’t believe you.
RWriter: How ‘bout I promise not to post more than twice a week in February?
Inner Ed: That’s a little better. What are we posting in February?
RWriter: You’ll see.
Inner Ed: Oh no.
