You were a brickbat, a Bowery tough

Research is a particularly devious procrastination technique. I could stare at the blank screen and chew my lip and fret over word choice and put down a sentence that I will immediately delete and hate every phrase that comes off my fingertips ... or I could read awesomely salacious true tales of fallen women killing themselves in seedy flophouses while down-and-out addicts prepare to toss the bodies into the gutter! Which one of these things makes me feel worse about myself, and which one of them makes me feel better? TAKE ME AWAY, WIKIPEDIA.

Ugh, I know the feeling. I've found that I can only really write when I'm telling at least one other person about it and excerpting excerpts to each other over IM or email or whatever. I'd be happy to do the same for you, if that isn't too presumptuous?
