sober writing treat


working on a secret writing project (samples can be found in the micro-emails). this is my sober reward for 5 days in a row of writing first thing in the morning, modem unplugged, before i run, in the dark most days. Wanted to do 500 words a day. Am averaging 1000. I bought these english tea cups from a new tea man, who can make sober tea for us. all is well in the world today. i’m pretty darn thankful 🙂

extract from today’s micro-email: “What I know now (that I didn’t know then) is that no matter how high or low our drinking bottom is – DUI or jail or rehab or lost marriage or lost opportunity or wasted time – we share these four things…”


I want to put this online, to hold myself accountable. I want to document the noise in my head. I'm tired of thinking about drinking. date of last drink: june 30, 2012
