Suggested Distractions

I remember where I was this time last year, and then a month later, and then a month after that.

Pure madness.

So I'm writing this to direct you to a couple of places you can peruse in between mad refreshing of your email inbox or this website.

For humor, some favorite online comics:

And for non-silly inspiration, this is one of the best places:

They have interviews with writers going back, literally, 60 years. Arranged by decade. I started with Hemingway, 1958:

"You write until you come to a place where you still have your juice and know what will happen next and you stop and try to live through until the next day when you hit it again...When you stop you are as empty, and at the same time never empty but filling, as when you have made love to someone you love. Nothing can hurt you, nothing can happen, nothing means anything until the next day when you do it again. It is the wait until the next day that is hard to get through."

Thank you for the distractions! I am actually about done reading "A Moveable Feast" so I recognized the Hemingway quote immediately. These will definitely help for this week ahead.
