It’s a Rainy Tuesday

November 25, 2014 at 1:57 PM (Challenges, Creativity, Productivity, Well-Being, Writing) (, , , , )

It’s a rainy day, and there are leaves all over the ground. Can’t rake them because the ground’s too wet. It would be a mess of mud, leaves, and water.  Still those leaves need attention. I like a clean yard.  Of course, after a couple of days after being cleaned, the yard will be back to being full of leaves.

Writing was slower than it needed to be. Clearly my mind and hear was not 100% into the goal. I need to redefine myself.  It’s not that I didn’t write, I simply didn’t make the progress I could have done. In that sense my mind needs to be in the game.  So today I need to make clearer goals. I’m gonna break out the note pad and write down what I want to see done this week, and maybe what needs to be done today in addition to some house chores.

For now let’s see if I can keep some of the simple things like getting more focused, getting blog posts back to a more frequent basis, keeping optimistic, and overall having a better day than yesterday. I did get my coffee, and I need a few glasses of water. I feel I haven’t done my fair share of drinking water.  Water is good for me.  I’d like to see my bed made up, just to ave it made before I decide to retire to sleep tonight.

So today, I must write out my tangible goals for this week-in regards to the writing. I must stay optimistic, and get some chores done.  I feel like this is a step in the right direction.

As always happy creative endeavors.

Make Things Happen Monday

November 24, 2014 at 2:06 PM (Creativity, Health, Imagination, Problem Solving, Productivity, Upbeat) (, , , , )

What I constantly strive to do is be a better person and keep my cheerful disposition vs dwelling in negativity. Trust me, sometimes negativity creeps up and ruins a moment. So it becomes a mind over matter adventure. I can do more. I can be more. I need to set my mind to improve my life.

With that said, it’s time to write more. Admittedly, I was a little into gaming yesterday, and stayed up far later than I anticipated. It was not an ideal situation for me to be invested in, yet the gameplay was satisfying. Today I’m less about gaming, and more about relaxing a little. Next I hope to focus on some good things. For example, I need to drink more water. That’s happening today.

Will get myself together, and see what projects I can work towards completing because they ain’t getting done if I don’t put the time in. Sometimes I feel like my own life coach. Other times I’m that best friend who insists that fun is more preferable to work. Gonna strike a balance.

Happy creative endeavors.

Get Back In the Game

November 23, 2014 at 12:13 PM (Challenges, Character, Creativity, Genre, Imagination) (, , , , )

Writing has been stilted, stumbling, and failing for me. It should be a bad thing, as procrastination, for me can be fun, enticing, and what’s in my head doesn’t have to follow any liner rules, however a pen needs to meet paper, a file needs to initiated on my behalf.

Been putting too much time into not writing, and granted I’ve been engages in other tasks, I know I can do more. As always it starts with a simple blog post, then I owe it to myself to place some quality time into writing some actual script, or story. Something to get the ideas from my head into the world.

Yesterday, I at least wrote out some background notes for a character for the TV show. Part of me, all week has been asking what are these characters risking, or what they have a stake in this series. Fortunately, I wrote one of the main characters ideas out. It makes for some good insight. I have to know what’s all the characters have at stake in the world. Also began requiring parts of the prologue for this series. This time I hope it expands.

That’s it for me. Will likely be writing something, anything soon.

Happy creative endeavors.

And A Nap

November 17, 2014 at 6:34 PM (Blogging, Challenges, Chaos, Creativity) (, , , )

Well, the writing’s been slack, and a nap was in the plans. I was more than happy to lay down and catch some Z’s. I’m still sleepy. It’s hard to manage myself when I’m in sleepy mode. I did think a post was in order.

Hey, Update This Page!

November 15, 2014 at 11:19 AM (Challenges, Productivity, Scripts, Warm Ups, Writing) (, , , )

This is me reminding myself to write more, and to start the day with a blog post. I haven’t had my coffee yet, so bear with me as I get myself together.  It’s the Weekend already. I can’t believe it. Another week has passed, and seemingly so quickly. Hope everyone’s having a good weekend.

First things first, I applied for more jobs, yesterday. I like to keep myself busy. Very busy.  The world sucks if you don’t have something to occupy your time.  Secondly, I found myself writing. A couple pages of rough script, unformatted in Word. I need to look what I wrote, and add more details and lines to it before I format it. My goal is to see a completed scene.

Also wrote out a quick bio for a character I may or may not use series. I like what I wrote, and the eggs to be fleshed out within a script. As usual other ideas bounce around in my head, and i wrote a couple down.  We’ll have to talk of those in a separate post, but I love the idea of having ideas, and committing them to files or paper.

Well onto writing, and hopefully this upcoming weeks some interviews. If not, keep trying, writing, and attempting to make progress.

As always, happy creative endeavors.

Play Early and Pay: Buying a Game Demo

November 11, 2014 at 12:03 PM (Dragon Age, Essay, Fantasy, Games, RPG) (, , , , )

I’m excited about the release of the game, Dragon Age Inquisition. Those who know me, are aware of my love of this dark fantasy RPG franchise, and I’ve posted a few videos from the game in the past.  Yes, I’m all caught up in the hype, and love every minute of it. For the record, the games in the Dragon Age franchise are: Dragon Age: Origins, Dragon Age Origins Awakening, Dragon Age II, and the current game Dragon Age Inquisition.  Dragon Age Inquisition comes out next week, and I look forward to eventually playing this game.

What I hoped for, before the game was released was to play the demo of the game.  This time there were no demos. For those not in the know, a demo is a sampling of the game. With the last Dragon Age game, Dragon Age II. It gave us a couple of sections of gameplay, and like most demos, it was free, and served to entice players to try the game, and offered some in-game bonus items for playing.

So now, with the new game, there is no demo, which is pro/con, but that’s a done deal.  What one can do, according to the Bioware website, if you have an Xbox One is purchase EA Access subscription, and before the game release dates, download a trail version of the game that allows you six hours of gameplay. Isn’t that a demo? Aren’t people now paying for a demo? Perhaps this is the way of the future. Perhaps our anticipation has been measured, and there’s coin to be had for our desire to play.  I suppose making a demo exclusive works out somehow.

Like I said before, I will eventually get to play the game, and I’m sure I will be excited about it, and that will be the best aspect of the game itself. To everyone who will get a chance to play, enjoy yourselves. I do think they franchise only got better, and can’t wait to hear tales of how people had fun with the game.

The Great Investment

November 10, 2014 at 12:30 PM (Blogging, Challenges, Creativity, Essay, Health) (, , , , )

Don’t internalize negative comments from others. If what they said was true, you’d never do a thing you think is worth doing. You’d never write, you’d never laugh, you’d never breathe another breath because someone unqualified to judge you did, and you listened. More importantly there’s a reason they’re throwing shade your way in an insincere manner.

The true test comes when you’re about to get something done, and someone’s useless voice pops in your head, and it makes you want to stop. Somehow, you don’t put that pen down, stop breathing, or living your life. Why is that, you wonder? People lie to get over on others all the time. To many, why should you be happy when they are not. You’ve been sniped at, with hopes of someone seeing you go down in flames.

I’m not saying that words hurt, or peers don’t know how to turn the screws to you. Words do hurt, and have a way of cutting to the core. The difference is, now that it’s heard/unleashed, and you know a thing or two about how fake and fakes the message and the messages are, it’s time to put your talents to use.

What you may or may not think about is, when you’re working on something you like or simply living your spirit knows the truth. It knows the person with the poisoned thoughts and tongue wasn’t telling the truth. See them for who they are, know that you can take a course in your life that changes. Know that your life and talents aren’t about someone else. It’s about you, and when you find yourself breathing, writing, drawing, singing, etc., in spite of naysayers, you’ve already proven their words invalid.

Those kind of fiends never stop trying to drag you down. What can be done is to keep striving, and knowing that you put faith, security, confidence, and integrity into yourself, and your endeavors. It’s how I can wish everyone happy creative endeavors. It’s how I may lapse in writing, yet return. It’s how I get up in the morning, look/apply for jobs with the hopes of being employed again. It’s more than never give up, never surrender. It’s believe in you, and work things out. Sooner or later time will even things out.

Happy creative endeavors, and put stock in yourself.

So Yesterday

November 9, 2014 at 2:12 PM (Brainstorm, Challenges, Chaos, Creativity, Rewriting) (, , , , )

So yesterday was a busy day with me trying to get a lot of things done, and tending to some family biz. Was so glad to be off my feet, and ultimately felt like I needed to lay down. I never got to lay down just the same. Something odd happened late at night. I had inspiration to jot down story ideas for the TV show I said I was going to put aside.  Furthermore, I had some ideas for some of side projects.

The TV show ideas came to me, so I typed those out ASAP. It was fun, exciting, and opened my mind to improving the overall view of the series. I also have an idea of who’s who. I know it’s not perfect notes, but it’s a move in the right direction.

The story ideas are also a step in the right direction. I put down notes on what I think what will happen.  One of the short stories, I’ll get into in a later post kinda felt unsettling as a topic, but at the same time, I know I can conquer my fears if I focus on the task at hand.

Today i found myself writing more notes for the TV show. I hope to allow them some time to cool off, but at the same time, I’d like to take two of the ideas and flesh them out with a lot more details. Happy to have ideas flowing and exciting me. Perhaps this is what I needed, to actively say I wasn’t going to think of it, then in a Zen-like fashion, the ideas came to me.

Happy creative endeavors.

Applications

November 7, 2014 at 7:47 PM (Blogging, Challenges, Creativity, Self-employment, Writing) (, , , , )

Filling out applications today.  I’ve been a busy, busy bee. A little tired, yet, life must go on. Happy to put the apps and resumes out there. Will keep going until I find something. Writing has been ill today, which is all good. I can’t write and do apps at the same time.  Sometimes I think I need to create my own job, and get things done.  Outside was kinda cool. Too cool for me, and I’d rather have the reasonably warmer weather.
