365 days of being a writer: day 325

I experimented today and finished a draft of a scientific memoir of sorts. It might not work at all, I'm not sure how to tell. But, I had notes and an idea and I just put it down on paper to see, even though my instinct was screaming at me to mull it over for another month.

Because my instinct would often rather stall than risk failing. But it's just words, right? I can always re-arrange them again tomorrow.

I also made more progress on The Snow Leopard and read a bit of Colson Whitehead's Colossus of New York. It feels like I still have so much to do before I leave--and yet I leave in 26 days.

One thing I did not do this weekend was write up any Demand articles. I really need to make a couple hundred more bucks there, but it is SUCH A DRAG. Maybe this week I can try for another couple after I make some progress on my bus essay.

What is the topic of your scientific memoir, sounds interesting.
Making two undred bucks in 26 days is not bad.
I coun't write about a popular topic and get people to read my stuff.

I see you're reading Townie. One of my 3 favorite books (memoirs) of this year. What do you think?

I'm sorry I somehow missed this comment (I hope you see the reply). Townie is currently on hold while I try to scramble through a few required readings. I was engaged quickly though, and look forward to getting back to it.
