Today got off to a slower start than yesterday. I read a bunch of short stories, the new issue of Saga, started Sex Criminals, took a long walk, ate breakfast, made coffee… They tell you not to start your book with your character waking up and having breakfast, and I buy that advice unless your character does super duper awesome amazing cool upon waking. Kills someone. Has mind-blowing sex. Creates a robot that makes you coffee and brings it to you in bed, with just the right amount of cream and sugar.
I did none of those things this morning. Instead, I moved through the world as if it was a bog. Deep. Dark. Slow. Teeming with dangerous things I couldn’t see. Step. Step. Step. Move. Swirl. Dip.
And then I sat down and got to writing.
Kiss kiss bang bang, s.
