Hi, LJ.

I have the chance to write at my preferred time today, thanks to taking tomorrow off to buy concert tickets. LIKE A FUCKING ADULT, YO.

The main character in this book, Zee, has an anxiety disorder. Of course, he's also a post-apocalyptic mutant, so really, a panic attack here and there is the least of his worries. I think I'm doing him justice, but at the same time, he can be tough for me to write. I can feel his anxiety like it's my own, and that's not terribly comfortable at the moment, but it's at least familiar.

This week has been crazy good for bands I'm a fan of. New FOB, new MCR, finding out Mumford and Sons is playing a Gentlemen of the Road Stopover in Saint Augustine- I've said it elsewhere, but it really is a great year to be the sort of person who likes things. There are lots of things to like.

If anyone ever needs help writing an agent query letter, I highly recommend slamming your thumbs in a drawer instead. I hate them, I hate the process, I hate everything I've ever tried to say about myself, and I hate the stomach-clenching fear drop that occurs when I realize that basically, my entire professional future rests on three paragraphs and a synopsis. Which I also suck at writing.

Concert tickets. I can handle this. And I really, really needed a mental health day.
