it's a great life, if you don't weaken (matociquala) wrote,
it's a great life, if you don't weaken

  • Mood:
  • Music:

there was this terrible sound and my father went down with a terrible wound in his side

Through the days of shame that are coming
Through the nights of wild distress
Though your promise count for nothing
You must keep it nonetheless.

Progress notes for 12 March 2008 (part 2)

In a sort of improvement, I now know what happens in the book. I just don't really feel like writing it. Still, I suppose boring, boring, BORING! is better than dreadful, dreadful, DREADFUL.

Also, I found a photo of me on flickr from VP, in which I have really good hair. How often does something like that happen? I even think it looks like me. Me with good hair!


New words:  1282
Total words: 19010
Deadline: April 15
Mammalian assistance: Cat vulturing from chair back
Reason for stopping: 19K, and I have to go start revising "King Pole" and practice guitar a little

Tomorrow I break 20K! Fifth of a book! It always seems to go faster once you've ground your way past that point. 0.0

Other writing-related work: Must edit "King Pole"
Guitar practice: Dunno what I'll play today. I really need to get my right hand doing more interesting stuff.

Today's words Word don't know:  unseeled, businessy, outmassed, nonthreatening, feathertips, treelimbs, uncatch,
Words I'm Surprised Word Do Know: filamentous
Sustenance:  coffee and water
Mean Things: vibrating knives, durance vile, family loyalty

And I greet you from the other side of sorrow and despair
With a love so vast and shattered it will reach you everywhere.

--Leonard Cohen
