Having Nothing to Say Never Stopped Me

Yeah Baby -
yeah Bitch!!!!Had the Austin Powers Rape Dream again.  I had this dream about a year ago where I met Austin Powers and he summarily raped me, hard. "Yeah, Baby, Yeah." he said, but with savage tone, spittle dribbling on his ascot.

What does it mean? Is there any Junginan symbolism going on here? I don't think I want to know but there is a Austin Powers movie on tonight. I think I will have to block that channel out.

A post about pre's and post's - post no Bills.
I stayed up late last night and finished a couple of cups of coffee reading DocBrite's account of Hurricaine Katrina.  Nowadays, we partition our lives based on the catalytic event that 'changed everything'. I compared her worries pre-K versus post-K.  Pre-k she's pushing a novel to completion, living life in NOLA and tending to her cats. Post-K she's reading Misery in a gas line, living with here mom in Mississippi and wondering where her cats are.

Do I have a personal partition? I've never been involved in a 9-11 / Katrina event that changed my life.  Some people are comparing their life based on Pre-W/Post-W divisions. What's been odd is that the last 8 years have been the best of my life. I married, faced down some of my inner demons, stopped chronically  smoking pot, became serious about writing (with my wife's urgings) and all-around got my shit togehter in a nice bundle.

I suppose I should use the pre-DUI/post DUI analogy in my life, because my outlook on life changed from that moment. I'm doing things I wouldn't dare to due before I overshot that turn and the officer pulled me over and asked the dumbest question ever. "Have you had a few drinks tonight?" (My podcast about it hereI know my eyes are red ossifer, I've been tanning thempf.

I also followed docbrite's LJ to get an idea what labors go into a novel. My first serious attempt ,and I mean Episcipalian serious, novel will be done by the end of the year.  Then, its off the workshop and shopping for an agent and publisher. I have no idea how to go about this so if anyone can lead me to a blog or any experience writers in the stands would like to offer advice, offer away. 

Suppose I should do some work today with the rent needing paying n' stuff.

sweaty brow
I've spent more time reading other people's livejournals (especially Poppy Z. Brite's entries about post-K NOLA).  Now, with so many things going on I could use a venting space and a place to air the junk drawer in my brainpan. 

About me:
I do a podcast called diabetic in candyland that is an audio show about failure and destitution. Just check it out and have a listen if you want to know more. I work at home as a webmaster for a couple of clients which I have done to spend more time writing.  I have a novel in the works partially gleamed from my Pentecostal upbringing.  I've noticed that all my characters are utter sociopaths and have few redeming qualites.

I'm married and it was the best thing I ever did. I know that isn't the story for most people but that is my story. And I'm sticking to it.

I will attempt to do more with this LJ thing.  I also twitter: twitter.com/aelmore
