I mean they are terrible. The pits.
Why isn’t anyone reading?
It’s the end of October, so blame the autumn doldrums.
Blame the World Series for taking everyone's attention away from reading..
Blame the weather.
And if it’s not something to do with October, blame the economy.
Blame Amazon algorithms.
Blame Obama, the House, the Senate.
Blame ISIS, ebola, the upcoming elections.
Or better yet, don’t blame anything.
Roll with it, baby.
Ups and downs.
Best bet: fuggedabout it.
Open up the work in progress. Write.
