Eeeek! My suspension of disbelief is failing

Eeeek!
My suspension of disbelief is failing. It's a fucking nightmare. I see the strings on Superman. Every plot idiocy goes clunk.
Cliched lines torment me. My dreams are re-hashes of old plots.
It's come to this.
I'm going to have to create something. [shudders]

I did not know that. I believe. There are no strings on you.

A poet is a nightingale, who sits in darkness and sings to cheer its own solitude with sweet sounds. Percy Bysshe Shelley

you know the best part? I don't have to try.
I have perfected a lifestyle of indulgence, laziness and pleasure.
I write what I want, when I want to, work when I want to, indulge whatever I can afford.
Life is beautiful.
