Today was a writing day… Well, it was meant to have been a writing day.
Somehow I ended up picking nuts.
The world is probably offering me a metaphor but I’m not entirely sure I want to interpret it.
Instead, I’m looking on the bright side – I have picked a lot of nuts.
Now, hazelnuts macaroons loom on my horizon… and through all my thoughts. This is not helping with the screenplay treatment for The Bone Dragon or my WWII novel.
Perhaps it is a sign I should try to bribe potential producers/publishers with baking. Or perhaps it is a sign that I have a bigger problem than the urge to procrastinate.
I think I shall go and pick some more nuts.
Note to fellow copy-editors:
I know it would usually be ‘go to pick’ but I am going as well as picking in this instance, so just bear with me here.
