Letter from a "seriously insane rich guy"
Tuesday, May 12th, 2009


Progress on Memphis Paranormal

My horoscope predicts one of those days when I just oughta turn off the computer and catch up on TIVO’d episodes of Primeval or Castle.

Decision making is tough today, and you are almost certainly torn between several alternate courses. It may be a good time to let go and let someone else call the shots for a bit.

I’m NEVER indecisive. So instead of letting that spook me, I choose to delete that prognostication and keep plowing through my WIP. Yesterday, I wrote 10 pages. Not the most I’ve ever done in a day, but considering I didn’t write that many last week, I’m very, very happy. I hope to do the same today and wrap up chapter six.

I’m still culling my spam folder for shiny golden nuggets. I had no less than three emails offering cheap colon cleanses. My favorite one was entitled “Max Colon” and promised to flush out excess pounds of poo from my colon. What do they know about me that I don’t?

But the best spam came from “Shawn C” entitled “A Seriously Insane Rich Guy”. The man can write a hook. He then goes on to tell me that he’s so crazy he’s going to share with me how he became seriously, insanely rich. I can’t tell you how tempted I was to click on the link, but then I got to thinking, “If I do, will he write me again?”

    I know your writing is the polar opposite of what I do, but I would seriously have a party if I could put together 10 pages in a day.

    That’s good progress, and I don’t care who you are…

    Thanks, Sonya! Now I’m curious about the “polar opposite” and thinking maybe you’re a member of the clergy?

    No, I spend most of my day working in spreadsheets. When I write, it’s legal documents. It’s the opposite of being creative.

    If you get to be seriously insane rich do you have to REALLY be insane? If you have to be insane then there is nothing stopping you from going on a extremely ridiculous shopping spree for doilies with all that money.

    Sonya!
    Ahhh! You know, I used to work as a Comptroller. That was the most “not me” job I ever had.

    Brandy! LOL!
    You’ve got a point!
