JSF, at the end of interview
Question: Do you have any rituals, processes or superstitions that keep your writing life productive?
JSF: No. I mean, I guess I write in different places. I like to write at cafes or the public library, because that keeps things fresh, I guess. But that's it, nothing more cute than that.
Hmmm. I haven't seen JSF at the public library as of yet. Maybe I'll see him when I'm there today looking over the 75 pages of my short-story-collection-turned-novel-that-iIm-supposed-to-be-sending-my-agent-yesterday.
Yes. 75 pages. I'm going today to read it over. I was trying for 100 pages, but between getting married
, packing for moving to San Diego, stressing over money, saying goodbye to friends, and beer busts
, I could only come up with 75-- so if anything comes to me today I’ll try to write it out, but I have to send it to the agent. She's about ready to have her baby and I want the first thing she reads to the little peanut to be my masterpiece!
By the way, I can't write in coffee shops. What's wrong with me? I just can't concentrate.
And there are numerous coffee shops I could write in here in Brooklyn but I’ve tried it.
I spend too much time people watching or feeling self conscious about being there with my computer, or I feel nervous about getting up and getting something while leaving my precious little Dell alone.
I dunno. coffee shops just don't work for me.
Oh, and i'm thinking of changing my blog's name to: WWJSFD?
Just kidding again.
