who the heck knows anything, anyway

Today, I was feeling a bit unmotivated. The walls in the apartment were (note: ARE) too white, the sky outside was too grey, etc. It was just sort of a bunk day. And though I have, since my point of creative departure this morning, changed my story,* I spent most of my afternoon doodling. Which is code for making Pokémon versions of myself and Daniel after seeing this.

So, behold! Me as a Pokémon:
My attacks aim true
Yeah, those are guns on its back

And Daniel, as not so much a Pokémon as "li'l danil: astronaut":
Those are tea-shooting cannons on that third one

As I said, I also got some actual work done today. Well, I think I did. There is no really good Instruction Manual for Doing Writing the Right Way, so I may be on the right track, or I may be stumbling around a dark room, hitting the garbage disposal instead of the light switch. Only time will tell!

The closest you will ever get to an Instruction Manual for Doing Writing the Right Way is Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott. But don't take my word for it. TRY IT!

*YET AGAIN. Seriously, figure it out, yo. All of a sudden, I have a character narrator. Re-write time!
