and so: 

This is a long ramble about reality…my peers. I dont understand but im not going there…and so I have a comrade who always sends me the worst quotes (although they are really good quotes) at the worst times, such as “why being a writer is the worst decision a person can make”, and… “you’re a terrible writer who was a pretty decent student at a terrible college and you are going to fail then die pretty soon”… and “The reason more than one of your ex-girlfriendz have married pharmacists who drive an outback… is…one… word… novel”… just such as blah blah…

So i get these usually when I’m at the end of working on a book and that is also the time when I’m the most beat down and crazy while doubting my will to press on and see things through. But I guess it’s good to get punched a couple more times in the face before the fight is over, just to remember that it feels the same as all the other punches, and often…it is those last punches that are the best punches because you learn about life from them…and there’s no difference between anything and people just say things and they dont know…but so fuck…this is the quote that ive been thinking about since i read it about five hours ago. I was punched by it and I couldn’t stop thinking if this is a good feeling or a bad feeling and how i kinda want that feeling…but then what does that mean? and I dont know if i believe Vonnegut or not, because i think there was more sarcasm in his writing than people even understand, i think he knew that society is a sad joke…such as…the mail box goes… rib-it:

“I felt after I finished Slaughterhouse-Five that I didn’t have to write at all anymore if I didn’t want to. It was the end of some sort of career. I don’t know why, exactly. I suppose that flowers, when they’re through blooming, have some sort of awareness of some purpose having been served. Flowers didn’t ask to be flowers and I didn’t ask to be me. At the end of Slaughterhouse-Five…I had a shutting-off feeling…that I had done what I was supposed to do and everything was OK.”


This is a playlist i made in like 25 minutes.I dont even know if it will work very well. Didn’t think very hard about it and did arrange a bit for momentum shifts. It’s for insane writing benders where you”re just about to break down but you dont have time for it because you have little time left and you still have thousands of words to go. .

good luck.
