weekend wrap up…

two things…

first…i joined this group…book-in-a-week…the objective…to write as many pages as you can in a week…you set daily page goals…and report on your progress…their motto…BIC HOK TAM…butt in chair, hands on keyboard, typing away madly…i’m optimistic…here’s why…

this adds accountability to my process…at least one week a month i have to produce or fail…and then stand by the results…

i enjoy the solitary nature of writing…yet…i’ve always been frustrated by my inability to connect to a community of writers…there is a long list of reasons why this has not happened…most of them are mine…book in a week is my latest attempt to get over it…

second…

this week at my new job…i worked with this temp…a 21 year old serbian immigrant…a good kid…hard worker…diligent…enthusiastic to…do the work…newly engaged…fascinated with dubai architecture…and tricked out cars…

and he knows the price tag on everything…and the value of nothing…you can be sure he will turn up somewhere in my writing…
