- Lazy Days
I don't like "lounge time," It makes me feel guilty and a bit paranoid that the world might be passing me by. I will see someone's byline on some irrelevant story and I will think, 'That's how every story would be if every writer took the day off.'
Yes, it is very stupid, this guilt. The paranoia is a deep-seated insecurity thing, whereby I convince myself that if I am not in print everyone is going to say, 'See, he's not in print, and everything is actually better.'
I really need a day - maybe some weeks or months - off.
