Nah, screw you artificial negativity brain


I refuse to be cowed by my robot masters of the future and the message they have chosen to bestow on me. While it wouldn’t be difficult to make a case for my huuuuuuuuge loserdom, I really like my life. I like its oddness, and all the green nature-y stuff in it. I like that I get enough time to let my mind wander to wherever it feels like going. And that the people I know make me laugh a lot and seem to like me. And today, IΒ  have given the book I’ve just written to a friend to read. Of course, when he reads it I’ll find out it’s not finished at all and I have a shit-load of work to do again, but for now, I can revel in the delusion of believing it’s great. So on the other hand, maybe that’s the point, I’m a huge loser, but it makes me happy, so that IS my style πŸ™‚

Note to self: I think we all function by keeping ourselves somewhat deluded, delusion is essential for survival, nothing wrong with it all. However, other people don’t think this and won’t react well if I tell them they’re deluded. As I discovered a few weeks ago at a party. Don’t do that again, me.

    1. Thank you πŸ™‚ I suspect you may not be a hapless loser like me, so if you’re success, congratulations! You made it! But if you’re bumbling along in the gutter, I raise my whisky glass to you, my friend. We have our own versions of brilliance, untouched by cliche. Have a fabulous weekend too!


    1. Yeah, it’s a bugger. It’s the best way to make your writing better though. And (I think/hope) after a while you start to see the problems that others point out so you can fix them before you show anyone.

  1. I seem to gravitate to so-called losers precisely because they are a hell of a lot more interesting than so-called winners. I secretly think losers are the winners when it comes to creating a fulfilling life for themselves. So there! I was wondering if you were beavering away on another book – future edits be dammed, it’s a time to celebrate the first finishing line. Well done to you!

    1. Thank you! I’m not fast, so I’ve been working on it for a while now. I agree with you about losers, I don’t think I know any people who’d think of themselves as winners at the moment. Ones I’ve known in the past tend to be exhausting.
