time for delivering neighborly christmas cheer, grabbing burgers and driving around to see our favorite lights. if we can stay awake long enough for a lifetime holiday movie, well then i've gone to heaven, friends.
my advice to writers, on the blog today. link in profile... Write something – anything – you are proud of. Bleed into it on a Saturday afternoon when the world offers much else but your heart denies anything but. Swim in the pencil shavings, dance in the Word doc. Leave parts of you as you work, fixed and frozen. Wedged.
Return next week to this place. Bring a crowbar and unwedge the parts you’ve left from days prior. Chip, chisel, discover new. Return again. Unearth the pieces of your work that you hate. This will be all of it on some days, so sigh deeply. Watch the leaves somersault outside the window as the weekend awakes and you work toward love.
