So I sent a full manuscript out to my writing groups. 130,000 words. Hopefully it's engaging enough that I'll get comments back.
If I'm really lucky, they'll be good comments
fingers crossed

So.
No drinking or smoking this weekend. Body felt better for it, went for a run, and it was a lovely day. Smell of tasty multicultural barbecue in the park.
All good
Why do I feel crazed.
sigh

I didn't realize you were Canadian. But, aye, I'm so envious of your health care system. The only viable solution to the mess that is the U.S. health-care/insurance fiasco is a single payer system; unfortunately there is no political will here & any concept of "socialism" is too taboo to even mention. mad

Oh well, just another reason why I ♥ Canada

As to the lawyer bit, as I previously told Kay


Its like I tell my divorce clients: while it would be great if I could get the Court to order the other party to be sane, reasonable, mature or not a douche, it really doesnt work that way.
Believe me, if I could, through the legal process, compel Anthem to be competent, conscientious, and timely, and/or pull its collective head from deep within its corporate ass, I would have filed suit five months ago.



hope you're feeling better / less crazed this morning.

stcyr:

I think I like your version better too.

All clear.
Let this be a lesson to me.
oi.
Can I learn from my mistakes?
stcyr:

glad to hear there weren't any long-term physical consequences.
I learned today from - - Elizadoolittle's minibar sentence - - a fine little philosophy that I'm thinking of making my mantra:


I've learnt [sic.] so much from my mistakes... I'm thinking of making some more


stcyr:

thanks man.

3 years of self discipline and focus, gone in 10 minutes of carelessness. A second rate pleasure yielding uncertainty and possible exposure to STDs

So, it's work and it's not.
I've had some initial sketches from the Artist for the book cover, and while (as always) I'm thrilled with her skill and style, she doesn't really have what I want.

So I'm doing some photo research and poring through my prose to find good passages to help her nail down the characters. And...

my two cents? [Most often worth less, but billed at far higher rates] taking one's time and making sure you're - - entirely - - satisfied with the end result will ultimately prove worth the effort, once you get around to it . . .

it's true, though I'm often iterative in this, I rarely get it right the first time

The Habit of Creativity

I don't really have it, I have the impulse towards it, but the actual nitty gritty of doing the work. Not so good. It often feels like work. Pulling it out of me. I don't really know how some of you crazy fucks do it - have a day job and then still do other projects.

The people who build...

I loved the Gladstone. I was so excited for the old elevator (I'm a dork) & the fun room.
Will definitely go back. Maybe a good place to shoot a set!

stcyr:

aye & amen. I hear you. I have great admiration and respect for creative people & those that "can."
I often wish I were one of them. I like to blame my shortcomings in this regard on my day job.
I have the ideas, but lack the talent to see them through, and the patience to develop the talents.
However, and again, this only makes me more appreciative of those who do.

Still struggling with work, and distraction. I wish I could get a better sense of effort / reward. The two seem so disconnected to each other. Random, almost.
psyche:

Ha, that's funny. My father said the same thing about smoking. That often times he's freezing his ass out in the winter and making himself miserable just so he can enjoy that one smoke.

In a way drugs are kind of like that. The scene itself makes you so miserable, that it drives you to seek more drugs. You have to put up with some of the shittiest people on the face of this planet, and waste literally hours and sometimes even days of your time with them just to get your fix. I freaking hated every minute of it, and wondered what was ever so glamorous about living "the lifestyle" to begin with.

Take care, it can be tough juggling work and distraction. Especially when it comes to seeking a distraction that can be fruitful and meaningful in terms of societal contribution.
