I managed to write 64 words yesterday. It wasn’t much, but at least I wrote something. I’m really not feeling this novel. I think part of the problem is that I’m not writing about anything I’ve experienced. I think I might do better if I wrote something a little closer to myself, something more personal. I need to spend a little more time pondering that and see where it takes me.
In any case, yesterday was my first day as a Chrysler employee. I spent the first part of it at the world headquarters in new-hire orientation. Wow, boring. They really need to arrange orientation sessions for people that already work for the company (e.g., contractors). After orientation, I came home to continue working on my front porch in the sun.
In the evening, I attempted to go to an endocrinology appointment and was turned away (see “We don’t accept cash patients.”). Such is life. I spent the evening watching Breaking Bad. I also finished reading The Fountainhead.
I may not have written much, but at least I was productive in my own way. 🙂
