What I’m reading today: Siddhartha
Did a lot of running around today, with only a bit on non-wheel-spinning going on. Safeway, Ace, Staples, PetSmart, Golden Bone, UPS Store. Felt like more. Returned an Instant-Pot that I bought, for, I got no idea why. I enjoy the cooking process, I also enjoy some of it that takes longer than other parts. I am not really looking for a way to speed it up, or get it over with. What was I thinking?
Outlined as I did the red rock loop trail tonight, a story about a rock that bestows godhood on the possessor. Phenomenal opening line. Got home and had to put out a few small fires and most of it was forgotten, especially that punchy, great opening line. Which put me in a semi-foul mood.
Edited a bit, was able to cut 10% out of 2 chapters, which tightened up the flow a lot better but I am unsure if the dialogue is going to feel stilted. I will have to do another re-read, but out loud this time to make sure it sounds right.
Got 527 words down of new stuff, of which I am pretty sure all of it will be cut once I come to my senses.
