Stacy asked me what kind of weird with the muffins. Here's the basic run down of what needs fixed in the next draft.
- Science: Extra liquid in the batter made the muffins too heavy.
- Taste: Not enough orange. And the year-old frozen cranberries were bland.
- Texture: Airy and moist but also heavy.
- Appearance: The muffins turned green.
I don't mind because having to write this way has brought a focus to my work as well as a direction for me to go. And, it keeps me sane. I like figuring these things out. Bad drafts don't bother me, that's just part of writing. Besides, there's always something to learn.
In other news, it's a drizzly rain here. I have jeans and two shirts on and I'm still cold. Burrrrr. Too bad I don't have any bakes lined up for today. Instead, I'm off to Aldi to see what they have on offer. Ever since the new manager, the produce has been good and each Wednesday, we get new deals.
