I woke up with this song in my head this morning, now it just pops up on its own on the Spotify. It’s an omen, I tells ya. #writingtunes

What I keep on trying to remember when thinking about my earlier dilemma.

Put the whole thing away for a month and start something else that you are more excited about. In a month, you’ll be tired of that thing and go back to the first story, fixing a ton of mistakes and making it sparkle like pretty Twilight vampires.

If ever you should see me write that something that sparkles like a pretty Twilight anything you are to drive back to NE and shoot me.

I’m sitting here thinking about writing

And I’m seriously considering dropping the first draft I’m working on and starting over. It just keeps dragging; there are some good bits to be sure, but overall I’m just not happy.

I’m torn because I’m about half way through it. But at the same time, most of a first draft will get thrown out, right?

Last week I went to drop off a deposit at the bank.

There was an elderly gentleman clogging the parking lot trying to turn around. He was basically executing a 3 point turn but making it about an 8 or ten point turn.

Why? He was turning around so that he could pull into the drive thru lane but in the opposite direction. Then he got out of his car and began fiddling with his gas tank; he opened the tank door and began to unscrew the cap.

This was when I thought I should step in and I asked him if he needed any help. He said, “No, why?” I hated to do it but that’s when I said, “Well, sir, this isn’t a gas pump.”

He looked flustered for a moment as—I presume—he got his wits about him then gave me a snide look. “I know that! I need money from the think and I pulled up on the wrong side!” I just said, “OK”, and drove away.

I fear getting old.

Nephew: Star Wars was in Captain America's list of things to see right? Is he going to watch all six? He's going to find out that Nick Fury is a Jedi.
