That writer fellow was right. God is an irony.

Gmail's QotD: Simon Travaglia - "Don't borrow someone else's spectacles to view yourself with."

Except sometimes you've gotto.

I just sent the evil unfinished story to truepenny, and she explained it to me. It's good to have friends.

And now what I need to do is stick the stupid thing in a folder again until it unknots in my head, maybe. Or maybe keep pushing through the Bad Draft tomorrow, and then go back and fix it up and make a good draft, and see how much I can get cut out of it when I come back.

Dammit. It's pretending the story is a cat you're trying to make friends with time again. Whatever you do, don't look at it, or you might scare it off.

At least I get to see my massage therapist tomorrow.

Oh, and I maybe found the epigraph for Patience & Fortitude, and if so, I blame strangestgirl:

Faith in their hands shall snap in two,
And the unicorn evils run them through;

--Dylan Thomas, "And Death Shall Have No Dominion" which you can read, legally and everything, online by clicking that link.
