Today I realized it’s shockingly close to the end of October. This means two (blatantly obvious) things:
1. It’s almost Halloween.
2. It’s almost November.
The first is significant because Halloween is my favorite holiday, yet I have no costume as of yet.
The second is noteworthy because it reminds me of the fact that law school sucks all of my available time. I would much rather be writing a novel. One of these years, I’m going to do so. I started senior year in college when I was taking creative writing classes, but I never got a whole novel. I did, however, generate a bunch of short stories for assignments. When I was thinking about November being National Novel Writing Month, I remembered that, back in the day, I posted some of them online. I found one of them and put it up on a new geocities page (so it’s not linked to my real name anymore), and I present it for you here. (Edit: For whatever reason, the hyperlink refuses to work. The page address is: http://www.geocities.com/perkytoafault/sheets.html) I’ll be honest, it’s a little smutty … but sadly representative of my college career. I like to think anything I would write these days would be a little bit more virtuous but … it might just be more boring.
