It didn’t originally make sense how exhausted I felt yesterday. But after a quick review of my calendar and completed items to-do lists (which are never complete enough, but still), it all clicked. I mean, last weekend wasn’t exactly a break with volunteer duty for virtual 4th Street Fantasy, fun as it was. So I’m going to keep it short this week.
Couple days on, couple days off. Still trying to peck away at a couple of short stories and developing some ideas. Nothing big. Just trying to keep the momentum going.
- This week’s writing chain: 2 days
- Total writing days this week: 5 days
I didn’t know this was a thing and when I discovered it, I had no choice but to impulse-buy the Library of America’s collection of Donald Barthelme’s COLLECTED STORIES. No choice, I tell you!
I actually cheered when I saw the first trailer for THE CHOE SHOW a few weeks ago. I dunno, I was in the mood to watch a train wreck of the usual David Choe antics. I have to say, the show wasn’t a train wreck and I was reminded of just what a good artist he is, separate from whatever one might think of him as a human being. You can check out all 4 episodes for the next 60 days on the website, or on Hulu.
I also caught the first couple episodes of LOKI. Yeah, I’m seriously behind on the Disney+ MCU content. Nope, haven’t seen WandaVision or The Falcon and the Snowma–the Winter Soldier.
IN THE WILD
This week, I made it out to my first in-person gathering to celebrate a coworker moving on to their next gig. I figured if I was going to be safe anywhere, it was with my coworkers in college health, right? I could be getting a little cocky though; I took that picture up above at Barnes and Noble later that afternoon. Still, the rust has to come off of my COVID-legs one way or the other.
