furious angels

Travel to the Mountains, Travel to the Sea

I've made my biannual escape from the 'ville. Chicago is okay, pretty boring, as per usual. I've listened to a lot of music, read a little, and wrote a little. I'll probably do the same thing for the next few weeks. And then WV. And then IU. And then back to Missouri (or maybe DP and then Kville?). Whatever.

I've been a little frustrated with my writing as of late. I'm plotting and outlining like a motherfucker, but the words just won't come. Apparently I can't write in anything except the first person progressive anymore. That's a little distressing. On the other hand, I've made some progress with character motives in a certain story, so I guess that makes up for my writing issues.

I ran tonight... and my knee didn't hurt! I'm very happy about this. I'm really, incredibly uncomfortable running in my neighborhood here, and I don't know why. It's probably because it's so populated. I wish I lived closer to a track.

New goal in life: hike the Appalachian trail. My Aunt has already biked across America, so that's out, and the backpacking across Europe thing is totally passé (and I'll do it whenever I get to Europe). We'll see if I actually do it... next summer...
