I'll tend to do the dishes, maybe some cleaning, then see what's on Netflix. I'm a master at Putting Things Off.

But in order to properly deal with the blocking of something I love so much, I always turn back to what prompted that love in the first place: reading. I may not get any solid ideas, but at some point inspiration and the need to be at the keys will surface.(less)

There's that old saying that actors get paid to lie and to pretend they're someone else. A writer not only gets to lie about everything, but they get to pretend they're anyone they could possibly imagine. This isn't to say lying is a good thing---in this digital age one really has to be careful how they word things---but the freedom to do whatever you want in any world you want. And if you don't like the way things are going, up on the right is the good old delete key to get your ass out of trouble.

But lying is usually present only at the beginning, as eventually the characters take over and you become more of a conduit for the story than anything. It's like meditation; they brain turns off and all these wonderful (or horrific) people in your head take over.

I also like the hours.(less)

“There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”
Ernest Hemingway

Henry David Thoreau
“I learned this, at least, by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.”
Henry David Thoreau, Walden: Or, Life in the Woods

Fred Rogers
“When I say it's you I like, I'm talking about that part of you that knows that life is far more than anything you can ever see or hear or touch. That deep part of you that allows you to stand for those things without which humankind cannot survive. Love that conquers hate, peace that rises triumphant over war, and justice that proves more powerful than greed.”
Fred Rogers

Fred Rogers
“Love isn't a state of perfect caring. It is an active noun like struggle. To love someone is to strive to accept that person exactly the way he or she is, right here and now.”
Fred Rogers, The World According to Mister Rogers: Important Things to Remember

Fred Rogers
“There is no normal life that is free of pain. It's the very wrestling with our problems that can be the impetus for our growth.”

Felts Great work on "Moonlight"! You really created some great scenes that stay with you well after you read them. I can still picture the toll booth guy demanded his seventy-five cents!
Hope to see more from you soon!


Andrea Kulman Hi there & thank you for being a friend on Good Reads!


Kristen You need to figure out how to add yourself as an author and connect your book to you!

By the way I'm on page 200 and enjoying it so far, I'm impressed with what I have read up to this point
