A Jackoff Writer Thinks:

20150610_233704

so what is this McKinney thing; no idea, I’m fully unplugged, have no TV. Also: I want to see Mad Max again but there is no time. I want to see Spy and Jurassic World but my self-importance does not allow me to simply go do things, to absorb things, be part of an audience. Too selfish, instead it’s just this: produce create produce create. If you’re a self-important writer you can’t just hold a thought in your head, you have to be aware of it and weigh its merits, see if you can flip it around and come at it from an oblique angle so you can put it on a page.

Man, this week. Busy. Got to keep the blogs fresh, keep pushing the first draft of this new book down the field, and then a book cover has to be picked out for the old book and, how the fuck am I supposed to do this intelligently, I’m not artistically attuned, so what’s going to happen is I’m going to pick light turquoise instead of eggshell blue for the background and eggshell blue is going to turn out to be what pops to the masses and so nobody will click on my Amazon thumbnail, because rods and cones. Pick eggshell blue and then you wake up the next day in an alternate universe where suddenly Spanish blue is THE blue.

So there is that to worry about. Also I’ve been busier than the President this week, so I’m worried about going gray by Friday. And: I’m worried that my five daily cups of tar-black coffee are going to blot out my smile and I’ll never get laid again. Something else I’m worried about is MERS not spreading. It stopped right at the border of my district. Every school in Korea has been cancelled, except for mine. People who have nothing in the world to do but stream shows on the couch when they get off work, they all have a day off, but I am still at work, running through six-class gauntlets in a hot room that sucks out a little more of your lifeforce every second you’re in there. The apocalypse is everywhere except my block, because Fuck Fred Colton, that’s why. Anyway, hope your week is going well.
