Hello. Hope all is well, and you are safe.

Yesterday I was tired. My eye was tired, and I needed to sleep. Ate dinner after work, and took a nap. Then woke up, then went to bed. My eye feels much, much better. I may need to wear my eye patch again.

I did write a little for this current story. I need to figure out the ending. A sentence or two just to get the idea and purpose of the the story.

Because of upcoming surgery, I hope to write tomorrow’s post tonight and predate it. Prepare to see more gaming videos. I have several already recorded. Expect a few lines while I rest. Fam will threaten to take my phone if they catch me on it too much.

Happy creative endeavors.

Hello. Hope all is well, and you are safe.

Where to start. Gonna stay positive, upbeat, and hopefully stress free. Surgery is upcoming, and I hope I get some writing before hand. The day of and after I won’t be writing. Contemplating writing two or three brief posts ahead of time and let that be that for a few days.

You may see some more YouTube vids during this time. I played a lot of games, and I may shre those. This is me thinking of my blog activity, and wating posts. It does me good to think on this.

That said, I wrote today, and have some journal entries to complete.

Happy creative endeavors.

Hello. Hope all is well, and you are safe.

Today I felt a tad overwhelmed with negativity, and I had to pause. Wasn’t writing. Wasn’t relaxing. My creativity felt dry and uninspired. Most of the time it is trickle down BS I have to deal with on a daily basis that is a mix of racism, losses, and living in a time of covid.

That said, one thing that helps me is my creative endeavors. It means a lot to me to write. They journals are pure writing. Blogging I love to share. So I want to take a moment to thank everyone who reads my posts.

I need to refocus myself. I need to live with a purpose and determination to make my purposes reality. I can eat the woes l, blahs, and mesh, and all it takes to start if fighting back for me. Writing is my happy place, and I take this moment to remind myself they things I want and love are worth fighting to complete.

So, yes, I felt that negative spark trying its hardest to settle into my soul and psyche. I also feel a greater need to exercise my own strengths. If the world got harshness to show, I gotta give myself a greater support, love, and happiness. If there is anything I should belive, it’s that I an tenacious and resilient. I must make room to make my time postive.

So I’m feeling down, yes, but I have purpose, determination, resilience, and the tenacity to stand up, dust myself off and get back on the horse. I am that man. I am a boss. I know and accept my power.

Let us all keep it moving.

As always, happy creative endeavors.

P.S. I already compled my journal entries. We gonna work it, and celebrate Mother’s Day, although Mom is 100% non-specific on what’s for dinner.

Hello. Hope all is well, and you are safe.

It’s a quiet Saturday morning. Gotta do some laundry soon. Gonna rest, relax, and write some fiction. Journals are compiled. This coffee isnt bad at all. I am mellow.

Gotta fight of negative vibes. Gonna do this with me realizing I am a boss and need to control my day. That means getting things completed I want to work towards. Blogging, journals, and fiction writing are my positive triggers. We will keep it moving.

As always, happy creative endeavors.

Hello. Hope all is well, and you are safe.

Have a three hour shift today. Gonna work it and be done with the work week.

Yesterday I was able to use more of the LinkedIn Learning feature and took notes on writing that I enjoyed. Learned a lot more. Have a lot more to explore and take notes on. I get all nerdy when it comes to learning new things.

Did my journal entries late last night, but that was planned. I was tired yesterday morning, and knew taking time to get those done in peace made for good entries.

Happy creative endeavors.

Hello. Hope all is well and you are safe.

I am super sleepy. I went to bed at a decent time, but I feel drained. I will get myself together soon. Today is gonna be slower than usual until I get my energy back.

Completed a story tutorial yesterday. I took notes and it was great. I learned a lot. One of the few topics the instructor stressed was clarity and specificity of your characters and stories. She went on to remind writers that we should be holding the curiosity of readers or viewers.

We should also eliminate any scene that doesn’t further the story. It is a way of reminding us to kill our darlings in our stories.

If you are like me, you get indulgent and write scenes that meander. The great thing is is that knowing not to meander ahead of time helps stomp it out.

Happy creative endeavors.

Hello. Hope all is well, and you are safe.

Yesterday I had a trip to the doctor’s for a consultation for surgery. So I’ll be having surgery soon. Quite the experience. It reminds me of last year’s surgery. I should be ok. It will take time.

Gonna focus on my writing chores today, and hopefully stay calm, cool, and collected. One step and word at a time.

Happy creative endeavors.

Hello. Hope all is well and you are safe.

Have an eye exam today. I didn’t study for it. Ok, I have morning jokes. I am also less mopey today.

Yesterday I had more ideas for a particular story, so I kept jotting them down. The cast and story got a little more clear. I still need to address theme and figure out how the story ends.

Today I am sure my eyes will be dialated and I won’t be able to see until it stops being dialated. One step at a time, y’all.

As always, happy creative endeavors.

Hello. Hope all is well, and you are safe.

It feels good to be awake this morning. I am more than tired and yet I shall get myself gathered and going soon.

I felt exhausted yesterday, so I rested a lot. Managed to get my writing chores completed and scribbled a few story ideas down. Happy for that small bit.

Forgot to take my allergy and sinus meds, so I need to get on top of that. Did I mention on Saturday I got a haircut. It was a good cut, getting compliments. That was a plus. I just like to keep my hair low. Let it stay short and neat.

Eye surgery is coming soon. I will try to stay relaxed and not stress out.

Happy creative endeavors.

Hello. Hope all is well, and you are safe.

A bit under the weather. All I can tell you is I feel tired and am relaxing. I have a consultation coming soon regarding eye surgery. It makes me nervous. Hopefully I am not streaaing out too much.

Here is a small clip of me playing Smite as Persephone. Persephone is a zonning/control mage, which means she can control a battlefield to her team’s favor. I belive I annoyed the enemy warrior (King Arthur) by blocking g his activity. I’ll upload the full mach soon.

Happy creative endeavors.
