Currently: wondering why my research paper on Japan is getting a steady number of hits every month. Does everyone have a summer research project on the Meiji Restoration, or what?
"Come with me in the twilight of a summer night for a while.
Tell me of a story never ever told in the past."
--"Key of the Twilight"
"I have come to the conclusion that my subjective account of my own motivation is largely mythical on all occasions. I don’t know why I do things."
Advice to remind me, from the unstoppable Mur Lafferty:
"You just have to tell yourself you are going to sit down and you are going to write."
--I Should Be Writing, Episode 91
"You are allowed to suck."
--I Should Be Writing, mantra
Long- and Short-Term Writing Goals:
1). Finish a monologue.
2). Learn how to write on a regular basis.
3). Write a novelette or novella before I finish college
4). Publish a short work of fiction or poetry (in more than a school magazine)
5). Write and publish a successful novel or short story collection
