a synopsis...

on a break from writing on/refining/cursing at the magnum crappus.

here's a rundown of what you have missed:

write. fret. write. curse. write. worry. try to ignore kids' noises. write. scrap about 5 pages cause they're shite (i know, i know, never stopped me before--but this isn't just a blog post this time). write. grumble. orlando, seaworld, jamming with friends, and too much alcohol (if stephen king has taught me one thing, it is "all work and no play makes jack an axe-murderer"). lose saturday as a result of being tired, sore, and hungover. write. smile. beach. "be quiet goddammit!" followed by 20 minutes staring at the screen trying to recapture the absolutely fucking brilliant paragraph i had in my head. finally say "fuck it!" and take chapter in a slightly different direction. write. chew nails. write. mail a few chapters to friends to look over. write. frown. look at calendar: "holy fucking shit! april is half over!" write. gitch. appointments for kids. write. "god this thing is a pain in the ass!" write. breathe. write. cry (rereading some of the chapters puts me right back there again, and i can't help myself). write. interview for golf course job (in about an hour--wooo hooooo!) daydream about what i am gonna do with the money when the magnum crappus spends a month or two on the new york times' best seller list (quit your fucking laughing, i said daydreaming!! jesus!)

and post.

Sometimes the harder you try, the harder it is to produce.

I know you tried to show how your life was uninteresting lately, but damn, you just made me even more so miserable about my own uneventful existence.

that is very true z, but i think i have finally found the groove, and things are clipping along a little smoother.

krissie, i am sorry. you could translate my book? i know, i know, that wouldn't help either.

yeah, i wouldn't go knocking the falling in love thing, pixie, as long as it is reciprocated. i have actually been working on this book in some form or another for over ten years, and falling in love put it on a back burner alot for me as well.
