These 2000 Words Aren’t Writing Themselves

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.
