My personal life is going well (fingers crossed) and work is a nightmare (cried every day last week). What’s going on with you?
I’m trying to write a thing and it’s torture. It’s coming out very bad. I was in a great mood the day I started it two weeks ago, and now every free moment I have I am staring in a mirror (metaphorically) and wondering who this idiot is who thought he stood a chance, and if there’s any way I can ever untangle the gordian knot of barbed wire that he so optimistically handed me. Also I saw John Wick 3.
And caught the last 30 mins of USA-Spain! Are you guys watching the soccer? (gnidrah, are you watching the football?)
Oh my gosh. Can we ask what you’re trying to write?
What did you think of John Wick 3??????????????
I am not watching the soccer but would love an update. Does anyone stand a chance against the US? I know our team is good but have no idea about the others (except Thailand, sorry Thailand)
USA-Spain was evenly matched in terms of energy level. We had them beat in coordination as a team, but one or two bad breaks and it could have been curtains for us.
John Wisk 3 (haha, that’s a typo but I’m letting it stand) was too self-aware in its humor so it wasn’t as good as 2 (best!) or 1. But I had fun and it made me look forward to 4, so this highly critical review is worthless. What did you think? Maybe it is time for one of your Keanu columns.
Re: writing, I dunno, I’m having trouble since I finished the vampire trilogy two years ago. I wrote a 4th vampire book immediately but it came out reeeeeelly violent and perverted, so I didn’t publish it. Then last year I tried a vampire-free thing that I was going to send to a real publisher, but it ended up obtaining a whole middle section where the main character forgets the save-the-world plot and mainly just frets about his career. Which I wrote feeling “this is some Kafka-level weird awesome,” but it’s not, actually. I don’t think I can profitably reveal details of the current project yet, except… try to picture what a total idiot might imagine is his Brilliant Way Out of such a situation. The situation of having spent two years steeped in mass murder, wantonness, and insectile dysfunction.
I stand ready to read this book.
Which reminds me, I had an editing client come back for more help on his book, and I did another review for him, and he’s really really happy with my critique. Which makes me happy. I just want all the peoples to be happy.
Tao, you’re back!
Yes, I’m here! Busy with work lately but present.
