Today Is

Woke up far later than planned.  There is stuff to do. Found myself writing down a concept for a new story.  It’s mildly incomplete, but I love love the idea of being creative, and will go back to at least completing the synopsis.

Yesterday didn’t write the things I wanted to.  It’s like being stuck a lot, then hoping for a change.  Fortunately when I start with ideas, it means I’m likely going to be creative.  Need to keep that going.

Still job hunting and needing to revise my resume.  It’s something to keep me busy in a positive way.  I’m a bit tired of being in a slump, so getting from under that is always good.

EDIT: Let me clarify. I wrote some poetry and lyrics yesterday, and not scripts or screenplays. Was hoping for more script writing, but my mind wasn’t there.  The lyrics and poetry, however, had my attention, so I went for it. That’s a victory.

Happy creative endeavors.

Not Now, I Have a Headache

Among other things that happen to me, my poor head’s been aching. It’s quite the distracting,mane I don’t want to do much. Last week was me dealing with some reaction to food. All I can describe it as like someone punched my insides.  The offending food is no longer in my diet.  Noticed me improving, and the “pinching” ceased. So that’s a positive, right?

Of course Mr. headache comes along, and throws a wrench into my expectations.  It’s likely I need to drink more water.  The weather has been notoriously hot and humid, and that had me sweating and feeling awful by itself.  I need to replenish my water intake.  At the very least it’ll have my hydrated. 

Writing output has been substantially weak as I manage my health. I hate that that’s how I’ve been doing. At the same time, I feel inspired to write more. Might as well put effort into what I love. I pray that I maintain the inspiration.  We’ll see where this takes us.  At best, my time away from projects may have given them the cooling off they need.  

As always, happy creative endeavors.  

Thursday Goodness 

Hello World,

Today isn’t bad. Not in any aches or pains. Monitoring self and activities to make sure that I’m not in trouble.  Going to have to keep a log if the pain persists.  

Did my rewriting late last night, and it’s very unfinished.  Usually in this stage it doesn’t have the feel I’m confident in, however, that’s how it’s supposed to be. It needs completion, then I can relax. Sorta like partway in a painting, or the prep work for a meal.  The fun is just beginning.  I will say, sometimes writing brings out the worst insecurity in how the story will be resolved. However, I don’t give up.  

So, after this post, I hope to write some more and get a decent page count. The rewrites have me working harder, and that I don’t mind.  

Happy creative endeavors. 

Wednesday

Today is about getting some things together. The first one is managing some sickness.  Having some aches and pains I’m monitoring. If it persists, I have to go to the ER. It has quieted down, so its being less distracting, but I’ve gone into “cautious” mode. It’s somewhat distracting.

It’s supposed to be hotter today,  What makes it worse is the humidity.  That hot, muggy feeling serves to make a person feel miserable. It makes mobility an effort, and trying to stay cool and hydrated is a must.

Been into some heavy rewriting, and even eliminating scenes I swore was the best thing since sliced bread, however, I don’t think they help push the story forward. Perhaps the scenes could be used later, or in a different context. I’m willing to put the effort into these adjustments. In the process I’m scaring myself. was sure I had some things locked down, and it only proves, that learning of a craft is a constant process.

As always, happy creative endeavors.

Best Laid Plans 

This is one of those days where planning is tossed to the side due to unforeseen elements. Got up, made breakfast, know there was going to be assigned writing time, and a phone call. The call ended up not happening, and after cooking and cleaning up, I’m telling myself to at least write. Let’s star with a post.  

Made a schedule in my head, as I have other errands I’d like to complete, like revising my resume, and job hunting. It all feels overwhelming, like it can’t get done. Need to one bit at a time things. What I can do shall get worked on, and surely, things will build from there. I need a plan. A good plan. Something that helps me get organized. 

At the very least, I need to get some essays written that are long overdue. It’s another thing to add to my “to do” list. Gotta manage this list properly. I always feel it’s a mess of a mess, and a mess is made to be managed.  

As always, happy creative endeavors.  

That Slow Morning

Yesterday was about getting up early and attending to an errand that was not escapable.  I hadn’t been up so early In a good while.  It messed with me some.  I really didn’t want to get up, but did.  Had to keep moving. I’m a trooper, and I got it done. No nap followed. I wish it did. 

Today is a little hard to get up. Was tempted to lay down Until I was tired of laying down. That’s not really how I need to start my day. One of the things to get my mind working is a blog post.  Blogging can be fun, exciting, and I’m hoping perks me up, in part. I need a cup of coffee. 

Writing hit a bump.  Should have done something, anything. I gotta go back to the five points system. That just means I have to make five new sentences.  Sometimes it’s not perfect, but at least there’s fresher writing in the file.  Do what one must, right? 

Have been watching various TV shows to see what influences the story, which does help when not writing.  Well, better shake a leg.  I have to get some non-writing stuff addressed.  Best be off and get it done, ASAP.  I guess my motto is get stuff done. 

Happy creative endeavors.
