Today I learned the hard way that I CANNOT write in public without headphones. Ok, so I already knew this from the last time I tried to write without headphones and wound up moving across the cafe to keep from strangling a father indoctrinating his teenage daughter against “Islums”, but it is just as true today.
I’ve listened to a bunch of old men talk about how banging whores is good for your golf game and why you shouldn’t use anything bigger than a branch to beat children with, and pre-nurse girlies being surprised that sexual activity can lead to UTI’s and wondering why we won’t be serving baguettes for much longer.
None of this had lead to good writing.
I’ve heard that people watching is supposed to be good for writer’s block, but so help me, I’d rather never write again than tell the stories inspired by these people.
On the plus side, Happy Equinox everyone. 🙂
