actual work

editing is tedious. i finished a draft of my novel and i've been putting off starting on the next draft for 10 days now. i have been working every day for the past 6 months and it feels very strange not to work but i can't bring myself to start. i will start today.

i will start today.

i can't think of a decent title for the book either. i have a list of titles but i'm not sure i like any of them. i'm not sure what i like.

PEDOPHILE

NEW TONGUES FOR THE NEW HEAD

RUIN

THE SUM OF ALL FUTURE LIGHT

TOMORROW IS ALSO NOT YOUR BIRTHDAY

INVISIBLE CHOIRS

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GOODNIGHT


i dont know about those.

submitting work to magazines is hard work. its a second job to support a job that pays in nice feelings.

i got a job writing reviews of local businesses for yelp.com in atlanta. my reviews are at blakeb.yelp.com. that's been pretty nice. temporary for now, though it may renew after 2 months. i hope it renews. i like the job.

i also have a possible paying freelance gig writing short profiles of strange peoples for a new online magazine backed by a porn company. that should be also fun.

moving is a bitch. maybe that's why i haven't been editing. i've been so busy moving.

i am going to edit now, goddamnit.

I read your reviews of Atlanta. For the last three years I've lived in two small towns that don't have any 24hr dining.

Lord knows how I'm still here.

Sometimes, at 4AM, I will find small children and paint them and eat them and pretend they are eggs.
