Hey ya’ll I’m having trouble writing. I’m 430 words into the 2000 I wanted to get down and that shit is mostly me writing, hmm maybe that shit doesn’t happen, maybe this does.
I have this book called How to Write Like Chekhov. It’s basically a catalogue of writings from Chekhov organized under different headings and topics, pulled from letters he wrote, journal entries etc.
From a letter to his brother:
“I do not feel like writing, and besides, it is difficult to combine the desire to live with the desire to write.”
That’s a good one. Besides, is proves that even Chekhov didn’t feel like writing.
Hot damn I feel like going to sleep.
“I do not feel like writing, and besides, it is difficult to combine the desire to live with the desire to write.” Does he mean only miserable people feel like writing?
Yeah..I have no idea what this quote means.
Because for your information I am very happy, deliriously happy, blissful, about to achieve transcendence happy… Ok now go back to your writing and reach that word count. 😉
When you get to Transcendence put in a good word for me, I’ve been trying to get in but I think it’s all politics.
