I love this song.
No joke. It really has this eerie kind of feeling to it, particularly since the lyrics talk about an endless cycle of useless feelings as the protagonist questions the point of what he’s doing with his life. It’s one of those songs that makes me want to write and it’s hard to fight that feeling and just focus on the non-fiction work that I should be doing.
That’s well on its way as too, though. With some inspiration and some forcing of myself to get my act in gear, the non-fiction book looks like it will be topping 8000 words tonight. The schedule for the project, however, is intense with me writing two chapters of it each week to finish the book by the first week of February. It is basically the equivalent of writing two very long essays each week then going through the process of editing/revising while I write the next chapter while planning the chapter after that at the same time.
It really is rough going and I’m not sure how this is going to fly while I’m at work. To keep my mind on the customer service calls while I have ideas for this project running through the back of my mind. Either way, it looks like I’m on my way to a good start and if I can keep this up, the entire project might end up being a lot easier than I thought it would. I’m not really holding my breath for that though, once you add in work stress and longer hours spent writing, it’s going to start taking a heavy toll.
