Thus far this week, I have logged 20,000 words on my current WIP. This is neither as many as I had wanted to write, nor as few as would make me pout. Twenty-thousand are enough, however, to cause extreme intracranial pressure, such that I long to be trepanned. What, you ask, is trepanning? The figure at left should give you an idea. Yes, that’s right, it’s an ancient medical practice that involves drilling a hole in the writer’s, I mean, patient’s head in order to relieve pressure on the brain. Ah, that sounds so pleasant. It looks rather pleasant, too, doesn’t it? I hear I can still get one performed in Mexico for a reasonable price. What do you think? Do you feel you need a trepanning after writing 20,000 odd words (and by that, I truly mean ODD words)?
Well, I think that man’s expression says it all. Good night and God bless you all. May God shine his light through the hole in your head.
