The daily hot! quote is three years old and just shy of its thousandth post. Some hot! quotes come to me easily and with a fraction of thought in the shower, on the yoga mat or while eating scrambled eggs.
Some daily hot! quotes, however, (at least my most profound ones) don’t come to me. I go hunting for them in the depths and spaces of my brain during twilight. It starts out as a persistent feeling attached to a thousand thoughts that could be driven in any possible direction. I scribble as much of it down, as quickly as I can, letting the feeling completely take over my body. I write until my mind is blank and the best bits are usually at the end of the exorcism. These last gems are the condensed version of all that was written before and are the seed of the hot! quote’s black canvas.
Then I shut out the world. I shut my door. I put in ear plugs. I shut my eyes and search out the best combination of words to express what I feel most accurately. If you were to peek in on me, you would literally see my head swaying back and forth as if I was Stevie Wonder at his keyboard.
This process is my favorite way to write, but it requires more time than I have had as of late.
I’m sure you’ve noticed the frequency of posts thinning and I’m sorry for that. The last thing I want to do is disappointed anyone who regularly reads my work. I’m not going away. I promise. I will always be here. It’s just that the evolutionary impulse has swept my life into a zillion changes this year and I’m doing my best to keep up, to shift as quickly and as efficiently as I can. Unfortunately, it has taken the attention that I normally reserve for the daily hot! quote.
Come the beginning of the year the posts will pick up their regular pace. I have a lot planned for the daily hot! quote website this next year, as well as my writing. The site will have an entirely new look and I’m excited to share it with you!
Stick with me. Like I said, I’m not going anywhere. ~mwah!~
