Sometimes You Have To Spoil Yourself

Yesterday I decided, to heck with pinching pennies due to continuing unemployment, I need to treat myself to a movie. I took off for the biggest screen I could find and watched Grindhouse, the Quinten Tarantino/Robert Rodriguez double bill. Loved it! Gory, cheesy fun.

As a writer (indeed, as a creative person), I think it's good to treat yourself to something fun and stimulating on a regular basis. Julia Cameron calls them artist dates in her book, The Artist's Way, and I believe in them. It's like you need to refill your creative gas tanks in order to keep running. After the movie I finished chapter 2 of my new book, The 25 Demons You Meet In Hell, so I know it worked for me.

And anyway, if you have to be unemployed, you might as well enjoy the free time.

I haven't posted much since my experiment with linking - a successful experiment, I might add. Thanks for the help, Justine! I use my wife's computer for all of my internet needs, because she has Safari and it is the best internet thingie I've used so far. The downside is, when she needs the computer, I can't blog. This last week she's been insanely busy with her school work, so I haven't had the opportunity to post until now. All I'm saying is I'll be light on the posts until her school year is done.

I haven't been idle, however. I've been busily rewriting my novel Young Nostradamus, and I started a new novel that is tentatively titled The 25 Demons You Meet In Hell. Sort of a play on Mitch Albom's title, but it won't be a spoof. I have a plan for it that steers well clear of his story.

That's it for now, true believers. See you soon!

This is a short post to test links. My good blogging friend Justine gave me some instructions on how to do them, so here goes.
