Out hiking in the woods. It’s dark and ominous, about to storm, the kind of day that inspires stories… No, really, we’re a mile from home and about to get rained on.
Chapter 5 continues to be this big fat black hole, where I keep putting things into it, and nothing ever comes out.
Reading my first Janet Fitch (Paint it Black), she’s amazing! Every sentence is so nuanced and alive! Oh, *sigh* I want to write like this!
Bought some fresh, organic, local strawberries today from the farmers’ market, and they came with a fresh, still alive and wiggling worm… Cut your strawberries open before eating, people! You know, unless you like the extra protein… :\
Dylan says, “Mommy, I’m getting bigger. I’m almost a man.” 🙂
Dylan, on his bug bite medicine, “Like lotion for vampire bites.” – and it even doubles as a good title for a short story too, lol!
Pilot Speed are my new favorite band of the moment! (Remind me a lot of Radiohead, or Muse) Love, love, LOVE!
Note to self: probably not possible to finish both five novel chapters and six LH updates before this trip, in two weeks, just so you know.
Well, at least I accomplished something before the monkey-child started climbing on me. Maybe more later.
