Don’t Plan the Plan If You Can’t See It Through…

November 26, 2010

I’m officially on vacation.  Well… Technically I’ve got this weekend off and then Monday through Friday I’m on vacation.  But still: VACATION!

If I finish two novels this week, I’ll be very, very happy.  But why just write?  I think I need a roadtrip.  Some random bullshit trip to parts unknown.  What’s worth going to these days?

Anyhoo, still working on three or four novels.  Typing up the Untitled Mystery, revising Zombie Dance, and Avatars of Death.  I fully intend to get this shit done.  Avatars of Death is coming coming along beautifully actually.  I’ve got some ideas for that thing that I can’t wait to work in.  Zombie Dance, I’m just trying to revise the ending at this point.  I love the story, but the ending is just not quite right.  And the Untitled Mystery, I’m loving the characters, I just need to flush it out extensively.  If I just get that one typed up before the end of the week, I’ll be happy.

“Fake Headlines”

I wrote the news today
In the tent outside the midway rides
And as my money flew
Singing to their pockets you
Could only know your shame
Knowing what the good ones do

And when you see the bruises on my legs from kicking pills, yeah
Then you see how recklessly the pages are filled
Make headlines, believe them come back
Make headlines, believe them come back

Want to be upside down
Maybe thrown from side to side?
Want to fall from the clouds
Sailing like a ship at sea?
Want to think out so loud
That the fashion police break me?

And when you see the bruises on my legs from kicking pills, yeah
Then you see how recklessly the pages I fill
Make headlines, believe them come back
Make headlines, believe them come back

You’ll cry…
You’ll cry, believe me come back

I wrote the news today
In the tent outside the midway rides
And when my money flew
Singing to their pockets I
I filled the whole front page
With the catchiest words I could find

Fake headlines, believe me come back
Fake headlines, believe them come back
