Resume

Daily posts start again, now.
It’s been a rocky three weeks for me. It is amazing how easy it was to fall out of a daily practice, and how difficult to resume.

I did read “Catcher in the Rye” (first time). What a great book. I also started Charles’ “Prodigy of Rainbow Tower” (my contest winnings), started “The Bell Jar”, and picked up “The Art of War for Writers”, and “How to Steal Like an Artist” on a friend’s recommendation. Oh, and I got back to playing my bass again. I hadn’t touched it since October.

So, I was up early this morning (4am), and am now listening to the birds competing for their version of “The Voice”. I need to get back to the reader, and catching up with ya’ll. The book has been marinating. I think it is tender enough for more editing after work tonight, and this weekend.

Have a great day!

  1. Welcome back! It’s not a bad thing to take a little break now and then — especially from self-imposed duties like blogging. But dude, how’d you manage to stay away from the bass for so long?!

      I know, right? I don’t understand it myself. But, it’s all good. I’m approaching my play and tone in a new way.

  2. Yeah, I always find that keeping a habit or routine going is way easier than trying to get it started again after a lay-off. (Things in motion and all that from high school physics.) But life happens, doesn’t it?

    I think I want to check out The Art of War for Writers and How to Steal Like an Artist … have you started them yet?

      I’ve read a little of Art of War. It’s cool. You can read a short chapter a day.

  3. I’m probably the only person on earth who has dodged Catcher in the Rye. Sigh. I need to stop avoiding it. Love your description of the birds!

  4. I never got into Catch in the Rye. I found the character difficult to connect with, but it was read for school. That might have been a factor. What made it a great book for you?

      I didn’t relate to any of the characters, but the description of the change in social norms was amazing. Must have been shocking in its day.
