Writing is hard, but quitting is harder -
Things are a little different out West. People pride themselves on being strong in the face of advercity. A lot of them also take pride in their individuality, even when it takes the form of quirkyness. Strong and quirky. That’s Montana for you.
I was scanning through the local radio stations when I ran across this:
“… They are kind of an odd bunch. so I guess we have characters as well as character.”
To me, it said it all.
“He tells me EVERYTHING. You’d think he’d know better. There are just some things a son needs to protect his mother from.”
Something Donna said about Can’t Remember Sh… Stuff Syndrome and being a writer:
“Kind of an information overload phenomenon. My brain’s so full of ideas, it’s leaking random words. ”
Daddy: You had the biggest eyes when you were a baby, like those toys you have – The Littlest Pet Shop Pets.
Daughter: Only I was cuter because sometimes the Littlest Pet Shop Pets are creepy.
Monotony can be very good for writing. Muses talk louder when they don’t have to be heard over other things.
