If you don't do anything else today read this article: How to become an author, in 5 incredibly difficult steps, by Robert Brockway. It's fucking hilarious. My favorite quote: "Editing is just like writing, except hateful, and in reverse."
Lesson I learned on Tuesday.
Don't leave your notebook in your truck when you bring it to the garage to have your brakes fixed. When inspiration strikes and your notebook is 5 feet in the air on a lift you have to paw through old magazines and newspapers in the waiting room to find blank paper to write on.
I was so surprised to be writing that I didn't mind scribbling on scraps of paper in three different directions.
I am a little frightened to transfer what I wrote into the computer. My rarely used handwriting is like deciphering hieroglyphics.
So be it.
I'll take it.
That's about all I have today. I'm in the middle of the fireman's carnival this week and it's raining and raining and we are so soggy and getting a little moldy. No fun this year.
If you are having sun...please enjoy it for me.
