Might As Well Live It.

I just cannot focus today. Nothing is sharp. Everything is a slippery blur. My protagonist hates me. I tell her she's a useless waste of wordage. Our hate fuels us.

Fuck, but this writing shit is fun.

:) Never fails to bring a smile to my face, that word. Cunt. So amusingly taboo in most circles!

and yet, quickly becoming a term of affection and amusement. we'll change the world with it, i reckon.

maybe we should have a 'cunt' day.

Dear such and such. i just wanted to let you know that you're a cunt.

it has such a ring to it.

i had an idea of sending out "get over it soon" cards, but this is something else!

it's pure genius.

we'd need a day that doesn't do much, maybe dec 23rd would be good.

no. i reckon that's a not so good day. you need a fresh day, a day free of everything else, so people will open their mail, see,

Dear Sir,

You're a cunt.

Yours,

and feel the special feeling.

maybe june ninth.

i shit you not, i had dinner with a guy a couple of weeks ago who builds skyscrapers. his buisness is called COBAY, which stands for "You're All a Bunch of Cunts", but backwards.

while we are on the word cunt, i once worked for Clint's Crazy Bargains. they had a run of plastic bags where the printer got jammed and the "L" and the "I" in "Clint's" were run together to look like a "U".

Feel the love!

I'm going to throw my protag into a wall soon. She's not as bitter as I need her to be.

actually i got mine working. it took a new name, the death of a surfer, the birth of an alternative, and a prose style that could blow up by the end of thirteen thousand words.

but what the fuck.

Alas, starting over is not a luxury I have right now. Pffft. Stupid protag.

i don't call it starting over. i call it rewriting.

it's actually not too difficult to change your prot, so long as it doesn't alter the narrative hugely. in my case, the narrative needed to be rewritten anyhow, so it all flowed together.
