This day makes me want advice, but instead of asking someone, I'm thinking about all the advice I'd give someone else who is having a bad day. Are you having a bad day? Ordinarily, I'd say...
- Eat well
- Talk to a friend
- Be grateful for what you have
- Drink lots of water (I say this to people no matter what's wrong)
- Take a bath
- Take a long walk
- Hang out with your dog or cat or bird
Creativity prompt: Write or paint or sketch something inspired by a truly horrible day. (The book above is fantastic, by the way.)
Recent publications (short stuff): Polygon in Chicago Literati, Lottery Days in Literary Orphans.
