October 18, 2007
Last night I had a conversation with Kathy about problematic relationships. You know, people we hate. No, that's too strong. We don't really hate anyone, we just get very irritated with certain people. Her and I have different lists, although there is some overlap as you might expect. After we compared notes about the ones that really bug us, I told her that I have come to the conclusion that my goal for the rest of my life is to forgive everyone.

Meanwhile, I have a new ritual in the mornings where I force myself to sit down at the computer and bang out a scene for the Top Secret Project. Whenever I sit down I am fighting pre-failure, pre-fatigue and all negativity, but I just keep going ("Write a little every day, without hope, without despair."). Lo and behold, it just starts coming out. I then forward the scene to the Top Secret Writer for his input. I call it playing ping pong. So far, it's been mostly ping and very little pong.

Like I said, I'm trying to forgive everyone.
