“Toddlers are fifty percent supergenius and fifty percent drunken orangutan — sometimes they’re brilliant little robots, other times they’re the family Roomba that someone spilled wine on last year and it hasn’t worked right since. The problem is: you don’t know which version you’re getting, so it’s nearly impossible to prepare. Will you get the version that sprints into the room and runs face-first into a chair? Will you get the toddler who knows how to design a catapult to fling herself to the top level of the pantry where she can hunker down and eat all your M&Ms while you roam the house looking for her? You have to approach each task, each situation, each room by recognizing that it will be under attack by either a) a flailing, pee-soaked cokehead or b) a tiny version of Neil DeGrasse Tyson. We underestimate and overestimate toddlers in equal measure.”

Writers think, dream, scream, flail, procrastinate, market, edit, email, caffeinate, plot, scheme, but above all else?

Writers write.

Translation: if today is your first day at Write Club? YOU HAVE TO WRITE.

(Also true if it’s your third, seventh, or eight-hundredth day.)

Word is that Dave Trampier has died. And thus so has a small part of my childhood.
