So I started my training yesterday. Monday's a cross-training day so I figured I'd take the long way home... instead of cutting straight across the island to my house (two miles) or even to the cafe I hang out in (two-and-a-quarter) and then to my house (one-and-a-half) I decided to do a loop around the southern part of the island, from Thames Street...

Thanks for appreciatin' the journal! Seriously, hard-work intensive creative stuff like video making and book writing and all that is kind of depressing, but you just have to keep doing it. Eventually it will pay off! smile

I'm super glad you liked Epitaph of a Small Winner, but that was PointBlank's suggestion. We alternate every week. So you should thank him even more. wink

Controlled Schizophrenia... I'm 10 days and 10.6K into my new book, so I can finally admit that I'm writing again. Feels good... these characters didn't want to come out on the last thing I tried to write, which is why they blocked it, and they've really been making a mess of my head and everything, what with leaving coffeestains on...

So the writing's at least passable right now... been doing background work yesterday and this morning, and I think I might be able to start raw writing Monday. I usually don't do a lot of background writing, at least not until I get a project floating, but since I'm translating from a book I was working on earlier... earlier being four fucking...

Up and writing, somewhat. If I can get my stride this weekend on this new book, I'll be happy, kind of like that time I got two Snickers bars from the machine by accident. This 'new' book is actually just a tweaked version of one I was working on a few years ago... a modern dark fantasy about a place that's slowly disolving...

Well, another weekend. Trying to write on another project, and it's having trouble coming out of my head. May work on a website my friend wants me to put together for her... in fact, I should be doing that now... but the book that refuses to come out of my head is also running around, wreaking havoc on anything else I try to work...

Well, it's election day. Still not entirely sure... the only New England independent running for congress that's worth a damn is over in CT. This two-flavor one-party stuff is really starting to piss me off... every other country I've been to (except for the communist/ fascist ones like China and VietNam) had multiple (and in the case of Italy, moltissimo) parties to...

Still sore... took half the day off at work so I could come home and curl up... well, not really curl worth anything... into a ball with my cat and take a bunch of motrin. Feel a little better now, and I've already signed up for another race... the LA marathon in March. (I need to visit family out there anyway.) I never got...

Officially a marathon survivor now. I'll post the pictures tomorrow. I made a bunch of mistakes, number one thinking that 18 weeks of training was enough, and ending with quaffing water and cytomax and sports gel. According to one site I may now have a soup of mollases in my intenstines, which explains why I had no energy for the second half and ran...

Still a busy week... went to Broadway for my first time ever a couple of days ago... had to see the revival of "A Chorus Line". (Pretty damn good... I cried, of course, but I cry during TV shows, National Geographic films, PowerPoint presentations... actually, everybody cries during those, never mind.) Trying to decide if I want to see "Les Miserables" now that it's...

are you reading any lovecraft? his grave is at swanpoint cemetary in providence . . . i've never found it though, and i've been there numerous times. it's a huge place. i'm sure there's a map or something online . . .

chickenlips:

I've read nearly everything by Lovecraft. He's definitely an acquired taste, and he may not be the best writer technically, but hands down he's the best creepy writer. (Although, Johnathan Carroll comes close... if you haven't read The Land of Laughs, put that on your list.) I've actually thought about checking out the Lovecraft room in Brown sometime... I'd like to look at a few of his MSs. I'll have to look for the grave... Tuesday would be cheesy, but maybe Wednesday.

Wow... have not done this blog forever. I'm not even on the same continent anymore, and tell you what, after four years in southern Italy and three years in Japan, Rhode Island is pretty damn strange. I really should have known better... I'm the one who's a serious Lovecraft fan, and coming to the place where he drew most of his inspiration...
