First Officer Douglas Richardson on the Millennium Falcon

I’ll admit that I have a Cabin Pressure problem (read: obsession).

I don’t really think it’s a problem; really I don’t.  I happen to like it.  Plus, I have this brand new talent to relate absolutely anything to Cabin Pressure.  And I mean anything.  Because MJN pilots, Star Wars pilots…makes perfect sense.

On Writing and Not Washing the Car

Hello internet.  It has been a long while.  I keep telling myself that I need to get back on here and write things, and then I psych myself out thinking that my first post back on my blog needs to be perfect and then I chicken out and don’t do it at all.  It’s an endless cycle, and a really stupid one at that.

This is from Stephen King’s book On Writing.  I had, admittedly, never read anything by him up to this point, but I picked it up one day while working at the bookstore and didn’t put it down.  It doesn’t so much give you little nitty gritty details about the inner workings of language, plot, or what-have-you; but it does highlight the fact that writing isn’t an easy thing in a way that managed to convince me to get over all of the useless telling myself that I’m going to do something and actually do it.  My favorite quote:

“…it’s writing, damn it, not washing the car or putting on eyeliner.  If you can take it seriously, we can do business.  If you can’t or won’t, it’s time for you to close the book and do something else.

Wash the car maybe.” (107)
