Some days I feel like the last person on Earth who hasn't read a David Foster Wallace book, but I'm not sure I really have the heart for it. After reading about his life and tragic death, I can only think of my son whose talent and beauty are being crushed by the same debilitating disease Wallace had. DFW didn't just kill himself because he was depressed. Depression killed him, much as ALS or cancer might have. I wish reviewers could get that straight.

Writing. Argh. I'm so far from where I want to be. What bothers me the most is that I can see just what's wrong with my work and yet I still can't seem to improve. I'm tired of not being better already.

There's a gathering near the county seat maƱana to show solidarity with our OWS brethren. I will not be attending. Our Saturdays are way too busy for protesting, but my heart will be with them. Plus, I am probably the only person in America who never ever ever wants to be on tv. It's honestly a worst fear of mine. I'll protest from the quiet of my house, thank you very much. I can send pizza.

It's Fanfiction Friday. Today's rec: Share-a-Braininess by [ profile] 47_trek_47. That's the stuff. Want. More.
