The past two and a half weeks, I’ve been pretty much missing online.
Between calving season and getting the farm ready for the big family easter gathering, I’ve almost entirely neglected my online family. I have to say that I feel pretty crappy for doing so, but I have lots of pics/videos of frolicking baby bovines I’ve taken in the meantime. I hope they might help in lessening the general bonfire and pitchforkishness reaction of my interweb brethren and sistren.
I recently remembered and rewatched one of my favorite movies.
How ridiculous would it be if David Lynch made a Disney movie. Well…he did.
The Straight Story is about a man who drives a lawnmower to see his brother who’s had a stroke in another state. He’s 73 with failing eyesight and doesn’t have a license, but he has to go see him because they haven’t spoken in over a decade.
Character development? You’re doing it right.
Sometimes, that’s how I feel about where I am with my writing. Not necessarily getting nowhere fast, but getting somewhere very, very slowly.
As my cousins in Texas would ask. I wonder if y’all have ever felt the same…
