Fuuuuuuuuuuuuck, man, I have to restructure, rewrite, and rethink this whole thing.
I'm not sure where I got the wisdom from, but I know exactly what I need to do. I know where the fat needs to be trimmed, and I know where I need to dislocate a few joints. Like being a butcher, really.
But that can be December's problem. Possibly January's.
I think Alan Alda's advice for acting is also good advice for anyone who thinks they might want to be a writer: "If you can possibly do anything else and be happy, do it."
I love writing, I love being a writer, I wouldn't trade this (even the angst and editing and the woes and great probability of dying in penniless obscurity) for anything.
There are days when I am absolutely sure that this is the only thing that justifies my existence on this Earth.
