As I was doing my Interview I was reflecting about some things that have always been true of me. If you read me regularly at all you know I tend not to talk a lot about current events. I don't participate in political discussions or the like.

I thought about it and realized that as I've gotten older I just don't have the stomach for it. I've been accused of being out of touch and to an extent I am by choice. I already know just how fucked up the world can be. I already am well aware of what tragedy is from the inside out. I don't need to be reminded by forty news sources. Nor do I care to have my days inundated with the horrors that make up life today.

I have known enough of them in my own life to not want to immerse myself in the rest. That doesn't mean that I don't care or that I'm unaware. I just protect myself from myself.

Moving on.

I read this blog called Storyteller's Unplugged that has various horror,SF, and fantasy writers who write various things about writing etc and the post for today had a quote that really struck me.

"Creativity is never stagnant. Complacency is the great killer of brilliance." David Niall Wilsom

I've said things to that effect for my whole life. I love that attitude. Stagnancy equals death.

In writing news I'm working myself up to Nanowrimo I think. Getting myself back into the rhythm of making sure I write something daily whether it's my crap ass poetry or something else. Today I'm not sure what it'll be. Maybe a little porny short short.

Could be rabbit.

I think that's about it for right now I have tea to drink and Bookslut to read.

Goodnight Sally.
PS...Foot hurts send candy.
