So, last night’s dream was simple and followed some logic where everything seems to click. Usually my dreams conflict with logic, and there are things that don’t mesh, and annoy/frustrate me in my dreams. Last night just felt good, and waking up this morning was ok.
Did minimal writing, but watched a documentary on HP Lovecraft, then a couple of episodes of Agent Carter. Both the documentary and the show proved to be entertaining. It helped stimulate my brain.
Needless to say learning a little more about Lovecraft helped me understand his craft a lot better. I knew he was influential, but he had a vicious racist streak that I knew about, and it turned me off to him, so I never wanted to read his works. I’m still off-put, and it does’t mean he didn’t have talent. Lovecraft was a walking contradiction in terms of his actual viewpoints and what he did in real life.
Lovecraft’s influence is seen on several creators I admire so it was worth watching, and perhaps I may read his stories one day…Maybe. Let’s be clear. It doesn’t mean I accept his viewpoints if I do. I’ve heard Wagner’s music, and detested his anti-Semitic stance. He’s talented, but too hateful. That hate really stands out and prevents me from having full enjoyment of his works. I digress.
Writing was a minimum yesterday, but in my lazy wake-up this morning, I imagined scenes I jotted down when I got myself up. Been revising one already. either has to do with the TV show, but I love the idea of writing just the same.
Happy creative endeavors, peeps.
