I'm practically paralyzed under a flood of ideas, none of which is particularly important, but all of which give me an initial sting of glee and, afterward, scheduling problems.
I hate Moleskine notebooks. They ruined two months worth of writing. Did Van Gogh not see this coming? They are too small, too few of pages and the pocket always falls apart. I am left with the notebook equivalent of a condemned building. Fortunately, I have stumbled upon Xonex journals on ebay, which are a hearty 240 pages, wide and ruled and much sturdier. I know this notebook works because I just filled one up in the last little while. Filled with a myriad of incidents, short plays and large prosaic outlines. The Xonex journal I am using right now was given to me by a friend who left for Indiana so he could give his daughter better medical treatment.
The (Poignant) Guide is now moving forward with French and German translations. If you have any goodwill to offer in this respect, please consider joining the translators' list and go right ahead and announce your name. I'm going to work on translating the comics to German in these next few hours.
