It’s not Saturday, I’m not in a park, but it is the 4th of July! So this’ll be quick.
Makes me wanna pick up the horn again. But I’m having a hard enough time keeping up with the writing as it is. One art at a time, Don! And besides, it was a pretty heavy work week. I physically went into work a couple of days to move offices. Just about everyone’s moving offices. That, on top of all the other stuff I need to stay on top of made for a busy week.
Not a bad writing week, even though I flaked on a day. You’d think it would’ve been on my birthday, but no. Either way, it’s still momentum and I’m gonna ride it out this week!
- This week’s writing chain: 4 days
- Total writing days this week: 6 days
I just didn’t have enough mental spoons to make much headway into Donald Barthelme’s COLLECTED STORIES. But my reading addiction needed to be fed, so when I found a reference to Jason Hackworth’s MANUFACTURING DECLINE: HOW RACISM AND THE CONSERVATIVE MOVEMENT CRUSH THE AMERICAN RUST BELT, the next thing I know it’s in my e-reader!
I’m all caught up on the LOKIs. I like where they’re going with it.
IN THE WILD
Saw this when I went in to grab a to-go coffee (yes, it’s also a bar). One day, I’ll feel comfortable sitting and writing inside a third space again.
