From the Editor's Desk
Can’t concentrate. Focus is eluding you. The refrigerator is your new best friend, as are the liquor cabinet and the wine rack. You’ve climbed down more Internet rabbit holes than you’ll admit to. There’s nothing interesting on Netflix. You’re watching Tangled and crying. You’re bored and restless, but you have a ton of projects you could do, and aren’t. You’re not writing. You hate that you’re not writing. Even your characters have taken a hike.
Sound familiar? Without meaning to be too platitudinal, you’re not alone.
There’s so much to say about what we’re living with, and with grace, will get through. Let’s start with forgiving yourself for being scared, uncertain, and impatient. No lectures, but here are a few things that might make you feel better and get you in the mood to write:
@pluto.living on FB & Instagram
Listen to Luther Vandross
Read books by any/a few Boroughs author(s) and write reviews
Wear flamboyant scarves with your t-shirts and yoga pants
Put on Prince’s Purple Rain and/or Chaka Khan’s Life is a Dance: The Remix Project and dance around the house
Give yourself a home facial
Get all dressed up, extra full make-up, spikey heels, hair out to THERE, and sing along with Beyonce’s B’Day – especially “Irreplaceable”
