Archive for September, 2012


Every day I’d say to myself “Work on the website, work on the book.” The website refers to two different ideas for making money for right now, walking dogs, and doing computer repair. I’m highly skilled in both areas and would be 100% happy doing either. Anyhoo, the book, obviously, is this site’s future. The stories on this site actually probably wont be in the book at all. Maybe one or two, I haven’t decided yet. I’m not sure how I’d tie it all in, but then again, maybe =) So the notes part took me what, a few years? I can’t remember when I started this site, but that’s when the notes started. I just finished last night. I have the outline done. I have all the chapters set up how I want to write them. I have the index, the prologue, the epilogue, the appendix, etc, etc. I just need to sit down every day and do a little more. My goal is to have the book finished by Halloween. I’m guessing it will be around 300 pages. I could probably make it 1,000 pages, but I wont, I’ll hold back. Plus, that’s material for a second book if I get the first one published. The editing part is going to be a bitch. I might just give the book to a friend of mine so she can edit it. I’ll copyright it first, of course, just in case it gets lost or gets out somehow.

Everyone give me major pats on the back. As someone who deals with being both Bi-polar, OCD, and having ADHD among other things, actually doing the writing is a major step forward. I’d actually love nothing more than to pay my rent ahead 6 months and just sit here and get it done, but I don’t have 6 months rent. lol. Oh well, hopefully if I get it published I will have 6 months rent. And a shitload more =)

P.S. Here’s my playlist for what I’m listening to while I write:

Sorry again it’s been a while. I always have every intention of sitting down and writing new posts every day after work, but then I actually go to work. By the time I come home, it’s like it is for a lot of you: I’m beat. See, I don’t have a real job. I mean I do, but I don’t. Those of you who know what I mean, know what I mean. For the rest of you, what I mean is: I made some poor choices along the way and instead of being a lawyer or a doctor I’m doing this. With any luck it wont be forever. I can’t imagine anyone who aspires to be a pizza delivery person. If you do, your parents fucked up somewhere along the way. I mean I can make more money than a lot of people I know, but we have to go through so much bullshit, and where’s the future? We get ZERO raises. There are ZERO benefits. NO paid time off. NO sick days. We often work 6 days a week, 12 hours a day. At my current job I’m only working 5 days a week and just about 40 hours at that, but it’s a lot of work, deliveries are really far apart, they charge $2 for delivery and we get nothing from it. Plus, my days off are Wednesday and Thursday. That sucks. They should have laws against businesses being open Saturday and Sunday so we all get normal days off.

I would say where I work now, but I have haters that stalk my posts and would love to try to get me fired. That’s why I never say where I work. But needless to say the new place sucks big time. I’m trying to find another job and may even try being a waiter. I did it once before at TGI and I hated it, but all this driving is really old. I need a break. There’s a place up the street from me I’m gonna check out. Anyway “more later”. lol
