- libraries will only allow flyers for free events,
- it is difficult to go into all of those bookstores without buying things (case in point, this pulp novel)
- waiting until afternoon to leave results in hot hot heat and is ill-advised
I went through a storm of sending out submissions to journals, online and print, and am now scanning my inbox, hawklike, waiting for responses. This was perhaps a distraction from what I really need to be doing, which is finishing...or, even, working on the middle of...that book which I began in such a fury. I feel terrible about this, I have slacked off, yes, it's true. I got distracted by other projects, I get distracted by the internet, by housework, by pet care, by cooking, by putting on my face, by just about anything, really.
I need to refocus on this, and so semi-public flagellation seems like the way to do it.
