Today

You know those days when you wake up happy, ready to meet with energy and a smile whatever the day has in store for you?

Yeah well, today is not one of those days.

I think being sick for nine days has scrambled my equilibrium. It’s like my organizational skills have an inner ear infection. I look at the scattering of things on my calendar, all of which are keeping me from having a few steady hours to write. I think, “Yeah, that’s f*cked.” Then…nothing. It stops there. No next step. I just kind of stare at the page thinking the same thing over again, like that’s going to help.

Emma needs to step up and take charge. First step: start referring to myself in the third person. That’s right. You heard me. Emma’s on the case.

I’ll keep you posted on how this is all working out for Emma.
