Tuesday

I’ll keep this brief.  My work hours changed, and my schedule is a hot darn mess.  Different hours each day, and my sleep pattern is disrupted.  I’m ready to go to sleep, but I promised myself a blog post tonight.

Working on the novel again.  Went into research and put a lot of time thinking on the main characters.  It lead to me looking at his troubles and where he was going in addition to how he was going to help himself out of his messes.

This pushed me further past the concept stage of ideas into more concrete ideas.  I can see a lot more clearly that I did before. There’s still a lot of work to complete.

Happy creative endeavors.

Let’s Get To It Already

Today’s title was inspired by Tracer, a hero from the Overwatch game.  The game’s usually fun, when some players aren’t being toxic. I like remembering the good about the game. That said, Tracer was hard to play. I always need practice with her, and at one point felt confident about using her in matches.  

I always try to find ways to inspire myself to write, and today, I randomly wrote a plot for a vampire story, which I still have no clue as to where it’s going, but I do have a main character, an antagonist who changes his loyalties, and another antagonist who for sure isn’t trading loyalties.  So I don’t know where I go from there, but I HOPE I get inspired to write a lot more plot down.  

That said plot is just that.  They ideas work well together, AND I like that it at least has that kind of flow (or pattern) I can see and work towards. It’s also supposed to be rough, and will remain so until I can commit to some research, better names, and making sure I know what medium I want (script, screenplay, novel, or comic book).  

So, like Tracer, I’m on the go.  Don’t stop me now, because I like the feeling, and on a roll.  

As always, happy creative endeavors.  

Latte First

Despite being very, very sleepy (too early for me), I have this desire to write constructively as well as creatively.  What does that mean? In simplest terms it means that the writing is going places as opposed to a simple exercise.  So, it’s back onto my projects.

I need to remember the end goals, and keep pushing forward.  I woke up with more ideas in my head, and I can’t seem to get myself channeled into one area, but I feel this will take me some time. If I lay down the foundation, the rest should follow.

I need to finish drinking this latte first, though.

Falling Off The Wagon, and Getting Back On

Fell off the creative wagon for several weeks. To be honest, I’ve been doused in chaos, and it has gotten the best of me. The one good thing I rely on, is that I will always get back on the creative writing trail, and follow my dreams.  

That said, I need to get myself in order, and keep pushing myself towards greatness.  I remind myself, in these times, that this is my dream to be a creative writer, and that needs to happen for my happiness to be fulfilled. Yes, it’s work, yes it’s rough, but if I thought different of wanting this dream, I would have quit ages ago.  

This weekend I put effort into my online writing class, and soaking in some of the knowledge. I dropped the ball on participation, BUT I need to get back on, even if to hear what was being presented.  

For those who work, get delayed, and feel like they can’t get back on track, we all fall, we all fail. We also learn from our falls. It seems like a never ending cycle, but I truly believe we all can see the finish line. It simply requires us to work harder, and to an extent, suffer for it.  Sorta like running. It’s difficult for my out of shape self, but I bet if I kept at it, I could complete my goal.  

Happy creative endeavors.  

Who Beat the Breaks off My Week?

So I’m tryna be good, and stay positive, but stuff keeps on keeping on being chaotic.  A brother needs a latte before he goes any further.

My work schedule has gone to heck. There are days that I am the early morning person, middle of the day person, the closing person, and finally the weekend closing person. My sleep pattern, and my appetite rebelled against me, and I now suffer.  

This is on top of the news that my favorite game, Paragon is shutting down their servers in a few months, thus the game will no longer be available to play.  

For those not in the know, gaming can be a serious stress reliever for me. I play mostly for fun and distracting from otherwise stressful days. Paragon was go to game for stress relief. I put a lot of time and effort to figure out heroes, and what worked for me, only to now have to give the game up.   Bah.  

There will always be other games, but I enjoyed myself–be it playing with a team, or bot matches, and I truly wished this didn’t happen.  

I’m still writing, but I am such a hot mess, I’ll save that for another post.   

Happy creative endeavors.
