STILL SICK, SLEEPING IN
I interviewed Paul Tremblay on HTMLGiant. About sleep! It's an interesting interview.
I like the cover of Tao Lin's next book.
I was supposed to have a phone call with my screenwriting partner at 11 a.m. today & I slept until 1:30 in the afternoon. I feel bad. I did wake up around 9 a.m. and my skull felt like a bowling ball encrusted with dried slime, so I went back to sleep.
Last night I had drinks w/ friends, ate a large cheeseburger, learned two excellent stories (one about Miles Davis, other about a manatee), and came home early to bring ASB benadryl. I should have gone to sleep right away but stayed up until 3 reading nonsense on the internet.
Sending out my latest novel manuscript now. This is my favorite novel that I've written, I think, in that I had the most pure fun writing it. I hope some editors like it. Read it. I can't think much about the process of trying to get books published, or I get too depressed.
Time to go watch more Mad Men and internalize the cold pragmatism of Draper.
