I’ve been bad at getting out and reading other stories and slow to respond. I apologize. I’m prioritizing editing. I need to get something published. I’m working on two books at once, The L Squad and So It Goes, using each as a palette cleanser for the other. That’s going to continue because I’ve found I’m getting much more work done this way, even though finding a few major errors threw off my routine.
A Shell Of A Time
The sun pierces my blinds and splashes my face. The blinds absorb the sun’s glow. I guess I’m awake.
I poke around on my phone before rolling out of bed. I open the blinds. I might as well invite in the sun since it’s barging in, anyway.
Breakfast. Oatmeal? How about something different today? Eggs?
What should I do today? Writing and editing offset by journeys through the internet’s halls of distraction? How about something different? It’s another beautiful day. I could go out, try to break out of this shell. I might even meet someone.
