On the plus side, I’ve come up with a cool story to write this week and solved a problem that I was having when thinking about the world of my Giant Novel of Doom that I’m still a decade away from writing. So at least my stupid brain goes on despite my heart trying to tell it I have no chance and will never ever amount to anything.
