Beautiful Thing of the Day:
spring in the Cumberland Mountains (redbud and dogwood trees).
Tip of the Day
It's very difficult to use your creative brain while you're anxious.
That's just science, not a failure of will power.
Give yourself a break if you're not writing at all.
It will come back.
Instead of writing, use the other parts of your brain for revising.
Start reading your manuscript out loud.
I'll bet you hear some things you didn't see.
Fending off 3am anxiety
Providing proof I will watch damn near anything about Brooklyn: Gravesend (the 2020 title, not the 1995 one)
Four hour-long episodes, written by the same guy who stars and directs. There's a reason, on full display here, why those jobs are usually done by more than one person.
Progress on biscuits
People are now sending recipes, which I think is hilarious.
It's not the recipes! It's ME.
And I made muffins.
They were sort of ok.

Dingo and Kiwi hate each other but decided to team up and help the humans of the world who still don't quite get the whole social distancing concept. --client Greg Levin
The new Bosch can't come soon enough!
