Briefly...

“Stop looking at the mountain of words you’ve yet to write. You climb even the steepest path one step at a time and that’s how you’re going to reach your goal: word by word.

Forget about the summit. Just set a timer and get 15 minutes of words down whenever you have a chance. Then do it again. And again. Each one is a single footfall, but they can add up quickly: you’ll be surprised how far you’ve traveled by only looking as far as your next step.”

“You know, when you watch a blizzard from your window, it’s just weather. But when you’re out in it, you realize it’s more like a living thing. I was under attack by the air itself as it bit my ears, stung my face, cut the strip of skin between my gloves and cuff, and pierced through my clothing like a lance of ice.”
— Just a something I cut from a work in progress (play) that I liked, but was messing up the flow of the line. Weirdly, it makes it easier to kill my darlings if I share them here. :-)
“I don’t really know if I’m leaning in or out. I think I’m leaning kind of … sideways? But that’s mostly because I’m passing out from exhaustion.”

“I don’t play the piano. I certainly don’t talk about pianos with any frequency. As best as I can figure, the main reasons every piano spammer has me on their radar is because of my name. Apparently, if the word Piano is in your name somewhere, you must always be in the market for a piano is how the spammer logic goes. I have a dear friend whose last name is Dickmann and I SHUDDER to think of the assumptions they must make about her.”
