My goal this week is to continue to work on a short story that I’ve been thinking about. I have a hard time figuring out how many characters to use and how central they need to be to the narrative. Since I’ve been trying to work in the vein of Magical Realism I’ve realized that in general I’m a minimalist in my prose. Trying to weave together a story like the one I’m writing requires an abundance that I’m not sure I have yet. But I’m trying. When last I left my protagonist she was peeing on her dead husband’s grave.

I'm in a hell of a mood. Scattered as fuck, I can't hold a thought in my head and my heart is a roving, salivating beast.
