Last night, I was driving home from Hastings on a street by the mountains called Tramway. One of my favorite Greenday songs came on and I hit the gas. Tramway is a great road for speeding at night. There’s too much traffic during the day, but otherwise it’s straight and already has a high speed limit.
It occured to me that I wasn’t acting my age. I should’ve been home worrying that my teenage son was doing exactly what I was doing–driving way too fast. But I’m not much for societal conventions. I’d had a good stint of writing and it’s spring. And my son was the one at home, so no need to worry anyway.
I’ve been listening to a lot of music while I’ve been getting words down. Most of it has been Chris Thile, but I often start out with the Black Eyed Peas: Pump It. Another song that I’m sure would cause me to speed on Tramway
I got my 5000 words yesterday. How did you do?
