Log: brief break

Well, I guess that’s about it for my brief break between classes.


Pretty dull week, as far as things go. Read a bit, watched some baseball, gym, swam, worked, the usual shit. Also started writing a new novel but I don’t really feel like I’ve started a new novel until I’m about fifteen thousand words into the thing. It’ll be interesting trying to find time for that (and this) but that’s a skill that I suppose I should try to learn. Historically, it usually takes me about three to six months of uninterrupted concentration to get anything like a first draft done. Over a year to finish the drafts and all that shit. But, those blocks of time are going to be unavailable for the next few years.

So, yeah, I’m going to have to figure out another approach.

But that’s fine. It’s not as if the old approach was meeting with much success. And long-time readers will know that I’m a Roy Halladay fan. One lesson from his career is that there’s about one thing you can do after you get the shit kicked out of you. You have to go back to the drawing board and start all over again. I feel like I’ve had my at a total loss, standing on a shitty mound, getting line drives hit at me phase. (Not for the first time.) Now I have to start over from the very beginning. Learn a new arm slot. I want to rebuild my delivery from the bottom up. Might as well do it now. Not like any of us are gaining any more time than we already have. That time shit just slips away.

We’ll see how it goes.

In other news, Janky Palace spent two days testing the fire alarms between the hours of nine to five. As a result, my sleep schedule got a bit fucked up. I had to stay up to comfort my dogs, who do not like those sirens one little bit. Scared the hell out of them.

This coming week, I’m getting a haircut and starting a philosophy course. Ethics.
