Kick in the Bum

So on the weekend I went to a wedding that was meant to be a summer wedding, and so I wore a summer dress from BCBG. But unpredictable Canadian weather meant that there was the addition of cropped cardigans and fancy trenches all around.

Anyways, one of my old friends was there -- someone who I haven't seen in a long time, but someone who has always been in my corner. He looked at me and asked if I'd been writing lately. I hesitated. I fibbed. I conflated the issue by bragging about how I had a day job. But the look in his eyes was like a spotlight. And it kicked my ass. Big time.

This morning I got back to writing. I put aside the non-starter novel for now and began to outline a new one. One I'd been postponing for oh so very very long. Hooray!
