It's time for the Monday Writing Report (MWR). Here's the thing. I finished up the article and the conference proposal early last week and just yesterday I got back to revising the book outline. Took a few days off, so to speak. Yesterday did not go well. I wrote some notes, and then took a nap. Then I went to see Jack Ryan Shadow Recruit, which is great and you should see it if you want. Starting up a new writing project, I experience a sharp, cold, daunting terror in the pit of my stomach so I've been reading a little about confidence here. I've also been reading about James Baldwin writing in Paris. Being a copycatter, I may emulate James Baldwin and head over to our local coffee shop this morning. Copycatting James Baldwin is going to involve a disruption of my sacred routine, but maybe that's okay. Mix it up a bit so to speak?
