During the past few days I've been editing the fic I've written this year, and last night I came to the conclusion that I'm a bad writer. Like, I am not a good writer, and I'm not good at writing - which is to say that I have neither talent nor skill. I mean, I'm not going to stop writing, but there's really no point in me taking it as seriously as I have been.

You know what I am good at, though? Surfing.

Fuck this "working hard" shit, I am going to Hawai'i. I've got some friends who've been pestering me to visit, and I owe myself a nice long weekend of sitting on the beach while eating shrimp and reading other people's fic for once.

And maybe I'll get drunk on the plane (as one does) and write another cracktastic Peach/Bowser story, that might be fun too.

I have not read much of your fiction (IIRC just a crack Zelda fic, which was hilarious), but as far as your prose goes, I would like to dispute that statement. You obviously have both talent and skill. I mean, I read your blog posts about games I have never heard of and have no intention of ever playing because, even so, they are still funny and/or thought-provoking. Also, your Ph.D. thesis might be the only thesis I have read *for fun*.

That said, not working on a beach in Hawai'i sounds like a wonderful idea. Also, I love getting drunk on planes! It's like the one time where everyone is in agreement that it's OK to day-drink and where I feel no shame at getting two mini-bottles of wine and a Campari with lunch so I can maybe manage to sleep through the crying children and the old lady in the next seat spilling chips crumbs on my arm.

^ I would like to second these comments regarding your prose, yes.

You enjoy the hell out of Hawai'i.
