This week I got back into the writing saddle and today, I get back into my regular Sunday Weeknotes routine. Of course, maybe that’s why this week feels like a blur and that there isn’t much go post about. That’s what it can feel like for me sometimes when my focus comes back.
So, after almost 3 weeks of no progress…
- This week’s writing chain: 7 days
- Longest chain in 2021: 33 days
It was all about getting back in the saddle this week, so all of my daily bars were set really low. I just picked away at a short story and dumped my brain of some ideas I might develop for an essay (or two). Maybe nothing will come of them, but it’s the groove that’s important.
Yes, we’re getting vaccinated now but that shouldn’t mean cool virtual events should stop. I signed up to attend two in the coming weeks, both part of Belt Publishing’s Spring Salon (despite what the link says).
- “Does Nonfiction Have to Be Narrative?” on April 15th
- “Cities as Characters, Ecosystems, Histories” on April 22nd
There’s a nominal fee for each event, but there are definitely worse ways to spend $6 (about $3 each).
You know that scene in ENTER THE DRAGON when Bruce says to Han, “You have offended my family and you have offended the Shaolin Temple.“? Well, I’m just glad no one’s around to kick my ass on behalf of Sci-Fi and Classic Rock nerdery.
TIL the HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY theme song was an Eagles song.

Also, it’s been a week since they came into my life and I’m still not sick of having Miss Velvet and The Blue Wolf on daily rotation in my playlist. I mean, if they put in even half as much work recording as they seem to, then these motherfuckers are the real deal!

Who’s a good boy ready to devour the week? Besides me. It’s Asher Mir, of course!
