I woke up, biked 20 miles on my stationary bike, listened to a youtube video of Sharon Olds and then wrote. I’m writing about my past, and admittedly it’s a little dark. So dark, in fact, it sent me into a major funk where all I wanted to do was watch Hallmark movies. A simple plot, true love, snow, a small town. Since this book is going to be a larger work am I doomed to feel this bummed out as I write — for an entire year?
Even if that’s the case, I’m doing it. I’m writing this. Maybe I’ll watch more Hallmark movies to balance out the darkness. ❤️
