Am currently in the middle of writing a short story (my last piece of fiction ever written for school . . . unless I end up getting a Masters someday). It's going okay. Slowly and a little aimlessly, but I'm trying to enjoy the process too. I like just writing and waiting to see where the story will take me, no plan whatsoever.

However, because I'm a senior and it's a Saturday night, I'm definitely getting a little impatient with myself. I've got a glass of wine and put my Monsters, Inc. DVD (one of my favorites!) in, but I do wish this thing would just start writing itself . . .

I keep coming back to this quote by James Joyce though and it gets me typing away again!

Thank you, Mr. Joyce. I needed that.


  1. Hahaha, I know the feeling you're going through all too well (Especially because I went through it twice, as I did go on to do a masters degree (well, one and a half masters degrees, but anyway I'm drifting from my point)).
    I've found in the past wine often helps loosen me up enough to write easier too, and often I'll wake up the next day, re-read my story and think "heeeey, I can't remember writing this good ever..."
    Good luck with it, anyway! :)

    1. Haha. I haven't re-read my writing from last night yet but I hope I have that feeling! :)

  2. That is an excellent quote!

    1. It is! One of my favorite writing quotes.
