So I’m open to help you move, Mike.
I’ll watch an episode of LOST while cooking hash browns and maple-pineapple sausage.
Why not butcher hundreds of digital deer at the arcade?
While I’m at it, I’ll send out query letters to two potential literary agents–the talented Elisabeth Weed of Weed Literary, and the fabulously-wonderful sounding Alyssa Henkin of Trident Media Group (and sweat and moan and pull my hair out, hoping I will impress them).
I’ve been beating myself up over and over again the last couple days because I simply don’t feel brilliant. Thank you, Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love, for telling me:
It’s OKAY not to be brilliant every day. It’s OKAY to not have every word be a masterpiece.
It’s not your fault.
And thanks to Austen Woods for showing me this wonderful TED talk.
