Went over 1001 word quota. Oh well. 18 minutes left. Will post in a minute. Think I finished the article at 1022 words. Oh well… some of Sedaris’ articles or essays I mean are like 15 pages. Yes, I know… don’t compare yourself to the master. Agreed… just what I’m thinking about.
My mood is in space, higher than it’s been all day. Giving self seven more minutes then I start posting. Seriously, I think I found something in this sitting… didn’t take myself out to lunch and spend some ridiculous amount on a half-sandwich and soup. Don’t get me wrong, I love Mendo Farms, but goddamn….
Grateful to the Mike Madigan of about an hour ago that made himself come here. Really, I praise myself at this small circular Starbucks table.
Literary lunch – haven’t had one like this in fucking YEARS. San Francisco absolutely loving Mike Madigan today… the drive back to Windsor, thinking of listening to a podcast rather than music. If I can make myself break habits and work on my lunch, forming over 1100 words or whatever, I can listen to a podcast….
Writing rules (and I’m going to make a list, an official one, I promise):
Don’t think, just write.
Singular ideas, or no ideas. Think ‘you’, ‘the room’, ‘bananas’, ‘scissors’…
Relax, who cares.
Freedom…. Build it.
Talk to yourself.
HUMOR.. this is all fucking funny.
