About Next Monday
Monday is sort of like deep breath time. You maybe mapped a plan, but if you think about every part of the week to come, it seems like an impossible abstract that could never be achieved by a mere human.
Starting a new project is a bit like that. Except, I think, there’s a smidge more hope.
You can line up all the pieces and try to get it supremely planned out—some writers do—but I wouldn’t get too hung up on all that.
Unless you’re like A Beautiful Mind type individual; in that case, you should probably be figuring out the debt crisis or building a bridge over the Pacific Ocean or something.
For the rest of us, hit the alarm clock, moan a lot, linger in the shower for a minute or two too long, then get on with it.
Mondays suck, but there’s a lot of potential. By next Monday you might be a rich and successful writer—that’s me sticking with the metaphor.
And if not, there’s always next Monday. God help us.
Chin up and cheers. See you after.
