Day 5: Passing through Khabarovsk #transsiberianwriters #woctakerussia #writingchallenge

We stopped at the Khabarovsk train stop today. There are so many smokers. I miss smoking. Smoking was part of my social etiquette. Glass of wine–cigarette. Cup of coffee–cigarette. After a great lovemaking session–cigarette. Folks seem mad stressed as they pull on that cigarette like it’s the last breath they will ever take. Yeah I miss it.

I had a bit of a migraine all night. I couldn’t get comfortable. I’m feeling a little anxious with so much on my mind. Where do I begin? Where do enter the story? I have changed my mind about my writing goals. I intended on writing an essay a week, but what wants to be written is the novel.
