Story of my life.
Yesterday was pretty damn awesome. I woke up early and wrote pretty steadily from 10:30-5:30, and then scattered from 7-11, and pretty solidly from midnight-2. I feel like I should have more pages, considering how long I worked, but I'm just happy to have written more than a couple of sentences.
Take that, writer's block!
Actually, I can thank the sudden, obvious, realization I had on Friday during my daily "Why Aren't You Doing More" pep-talk/beat down. I was in the middle of berating myself for not looking for more online outlets when it clearly dawned on me: in order to submit pieces for publishing, I actually have to have pieces to submit for publishing. That means sitting down and writing. Writing words. And stuff. I can't very well go around trying to send in the same 3 stories that I wrote in college.
So, I'm taking a break from my book and am starting hard work on a couple of essay-type editorials and a satirical short story. And as soon as they're done, I'll start shopping them around online. I hope this will be a nice change of pace.
In the mean time, here is my latest Velociraptor + Things I Love: a squirrel, a giraffe, and a velociraptor having a nice time on a Sunday morning:
Have a nice time watching the Super Bowl, if that's what you're in to.
