Sunday Night Wakefulness

There's something about Sunday nights that riddles my body with anxiety and I'm lucky if I get 4 hrs of sleep. I don't want to be dependent on NyQuil or Tylenol PM so I join the land of insomnia and on Monday mornings I have a Diet Coke to get me through the day.

Memoir Update

92 Pages or 27,150 words. I'm taking two classes from Writing Workshops LA; a private NF workshop with Chris Daley and Novel II with Seth Fischer. I got stuck with the memoir and needed to work some things out before I could continue. I wrote other stories until I figured out what the memoir needed and today I went back to it. The goal is to write 50 pages by the end of June and an additional 100 by August so I can start the 2nd draft in September.

I met a group of fabulous women, we get together once a month for a submission party and submit our work to literary journals. I've submitted three pieces, they were not ready to go out into the world yet but I have nothing to lose.

I am grateful for the muse and my drive to get this done.
