I’m writing this three hours deep (with the help of Freedom) into a day-long writing session. After the three hours, I went down to the corner coffee shop and bought myself a vanilla milkshake, which will be lunch for today, and I sipped on that while watching an episode of “Law & Order: Criminal Intent.” (We all need breaks.) Above you can see my set-up, including an enormous canvas bulletin board, ice-cold water, Daphne lounging in her crate, my laptop, and a lavender candle. Flowers. It’s 11:49 AM. In other news, I received a letter from Yaddo stating that I’m on the wait list for 2013. This year has gone by so swiftly, and all I want for it to do is slow the heck down.
