How are you and yours doing (If you want/need to talk about your life use this question)?

What are you reading? How is it?

What are you writing, editing, etc? How is that going?

What uncommon writing tools, websites (besides Litreactor), and what not are you using? How/are they helping?

What other things/entertainment are you into? How are they?

Do you have any other creative projects?

Why aren't you getting more done (in general, not this very second)?

Is that just an excuse?

Really?

Anything you want to share?

Feel free to ask me a reasonable question(s), I just won't answer my own if you repeat them back or re-word them.

A tampon is an excellent tool for stopping the bleeding out of a gunshot or puncture wound, nose bleed... 

Feel free to ask me a reasonable question(s), I just won't answer my own if you repeat them back or re-word them.

What character of your own creation was the most fun to write, and why?

Come on people, it's been almost 2 weeks. Humans love to talk about themselves. It can't be that dead in here...

How are you and yours doing (If you want/need to talk about your life use this question)? I'm pending acceptance or rejection from MFA programs. I'm stressed and don't give a shit. I'm not sure how that is.

What are you reading? How is it? The Arabian Nights (Amazing); The History of Western Philosophy by Bertrand Russell (Humbling); The Moral Landscape by Sam Harris (Frustrating)

What are you writing, editing, etc? How is that going? Reviewing a collection of poems for BrickHouse Books; Writing three different technical manuals for the Social Security Administration (I'm a contractor); I'm re-writing my novella and turning it into a novel. It's slowly taking shape.

What uncommon writing tools, websites (besides Litreactor), and what not are you using? How/are they helping? The 3 AM Epiphany, it is helping me just get words out there in new and interesting ways that I never considered.

What other things/entertainment are you into? How are they? I saw Deadpool. About that.....

Do you have any other creative projects? I'm keeping my little wordpress site moving along. suicidephoenix.com if you want to see some eh writing.

Why aren't you getting more done (in general, not this very second)? I feel overwhelmed. With 8 1/2 hours of work, 2 hours in the gym, two hours worth of commute, moving forward with my story, moving forward with my reading, reviewing extra stuff here and there, and still having a moment to myself to sleep. It's normal, but it doesn't feel that way.

Is that just an excuse? I think so. I'm not sure. It's just what it is. 

Really? Maybe....

Anything you want to share? I feel myself getting better everyday in little tiny steps. Just got to keep my head down, put in the work, and turn myself into Sisyphus for a while. Or a suicidal phoenix.
