Well I Sure Learned My Lesson

You might remember me saying on Monday that last week wasn't too bad, and that I had therefore challenged the universe to make this week awful. You might be interested to know that the universe accepted the challenge and it won too. This week has been cataclysmicly (that's not even a word) awful. I've barely slept, a friend of mine has gone away for nearly a week, I have to rewrite a good amount of a story but I can't because my brain is dying. I didn't even want to record a podcast because I'm just so tired right now. In the end I decided I was so tired it was easier to just hit record and talk about things instead of typing them out. Although actually I don't do much bitching about the week or even go into it. I just explain that right now I'm in rough shape, and I also talk some about my writing itself. Including how even though a story of mine is being received incredibly well, a guy said that he hopes I don't put a character in a relationship because he's an annoying know it all. To make things even better, my laptop died while I was writing this post. Great, the thing is still broken. I know I still have my old one, but that doesn't mean I'm happy to let this one die. At least everything is backed up, I guess.

So you don't end up too worried about me or nothing, I put on a pretty inspiring song and did the rewriting I had to do. Now I can safely say the story is better for it. Goes to show you really. Don't allow yourself to wallow in misery and pain. Go do something that makes you feel damn good about yourself.

  4. Wow, sorry to hear you are feeling so down in the dumps. But I digress. When you become a famous writer you might want to burn this podcast. I can't imagine Ernest Hemingway comparing his stories to episodes of "Friends." Actually, I'm just kidding. I would have made the reference a little more current though... how about relating your characters to Kanye West and Kim Kardashian next time?

  5. Well hopefully next week is better like the previous week was. Moral of the story - never challenge the universe to a fight :)

  6. Last week was okay. This week is okay. Next week I'll no longer have a job.
    But, I'll probably be okay.

  7. Sorry to hear things are going crappy at the moment. Things will get better. Also, I say this not to be mean, but I had to stop listening to your podcast. You know how they say yawning is contagious? Well, since you kept yawning, listening to it kept making ME yawn over and over again, and I had to stop before I made myself go take a nap.

    Feel better, man!
