Leaving for the peninsula in a few minutes. Burlingame, then SSF. Not sure what this will produce. Doubtful, if you can’t already tell. Still moving slow from yesterday and everything that came up.
Told friend last night I need to make some MAJOR changes in this AE story, if it’s to go on. New good luck charm in pocket, something she gave me last night. Interesting symbol. Won’t talk about it or elaborate now. Interesting, just note. To me, how I find and read it.
Well rested, going to bed early last night, or earlier than I usually do. Sipping coffee…. The day is new. And promising. Shake it off, yesterday… everything that it was and did. Again, new morning. Going back to part of my old neighborhood today, seeing the kids later.. today will be amazing. More than amazing, it’ll turn the momentum around with sales and my AE story. It has to.
Make sure I have enough business cards. Shit, they’re on the 3rd floor. Eye-roll…. Then smile.
I’m here, I’m home, in the loft… where my life as a Sedaris-like writer starts. I do have to laugh at some people and their language, and their explanations, and then me with how much I’m stressing over sales and goosing last month and so far this month. What can I do… laugh at it, every piece and scene. Hard to do, but I’ll bring myself there.
Should check in with the other AE’s I’m meeting out there, make sure we’re still a go. Leaving anyway, even if we’re not. I need to be out in the field more, I know. Seen, heard, introduced by self.. a sales person, though I’m starting to deplore that term.
What’s the travel time…. Two hours and six minutes.. Shit… okay… should leave sooner rather than later.
You know what, stop writing. Go… drive, be On The Road. Meet people, change this story. NOW.
