The Routine

For the past few weeks, my routine changed. I took time off from work, which threw my morning blog posting off. The routine is write on projects before work, then during my lunch break, and when I got home.

Being off meant I stopped doing morning things. Getting up at my leasure is a luxuary in itself. I don’t have a set home break. Writing is very spurr of the moment writing. When it’s quiet, then I can get stuff written.

I broke the routine frequently. Blogging is still a must for me, even if if doesn’t get done in the morning.

Happy creative endeavors.

P.S. Witing now, because it’s quiet, and I love it.


Sunday Symptoms

Woke up with neck pain, and mild sinus pressure that wasn’t gonna quit on me. On top of that, I got mildly nauseated. Took the allergy and sinus meds first. Later on I took pain pills. Slowly, but surely I am feeling better.

Tbis tells me to relax today, and try not to get into any negative situations.

I still wanted a blog post, so now I have one.

Happy creative endeavors. .

The Spine, A Seond Pass

Ok, yesterday was the day the spine of my story got a second pass. The goal was to make sure the story focused on the two characters (main character and antagonist), so mission accomplished.

I still have questions, so I need to know how some things will work out (the logistics) that requires deeper thinking. That said, my story spine (outline) has improved. I think I should type it out soon. I feel it will improve by leaps and bounds.

This has me excited and wanting to see more development.

As always, happy creative endeavors.

The Spine

Stories have spines. The spine is the bare bones of your story that has a beginning middle and end. It is essentially an uncomplicated outline.

For my current project, I created a spine for the story. It is as raw as all get out. It helped me choose the direction fornthe story. What’s important in the story, and what needs to be improved.

As the spine gets a second pass, I remind myself that the story originally had two characters. I want to return and make sure that they, and the obstacle are front and center.

As always, happy creative endeavors.

Tuesday Sleepiness

I am sleepy. It shows. Slow to wake up, slow to get out of bed, and just slow. Slwoly but surely, things will fall back into place.

Yesterday, I saw the 22 rules of storytelling by Pixar creators. I decided tonwrite them out. Mainly because reading it was simple, and I wanted to incoprate it in my brain more. So write I did. I like it. Letting it chill for a min, then I will review it again.

Maybe I can apply it to my current peoject. It wouldnt hurt.

As always, happy creative endeavors.

Have A Great Day

I try, every day, to wish people to have a good day. This is in a large part, to start my day off with positive vibes. At the very least, like my blog, I want something consistent, and feels good to do so.

That said, I am back to focus on my writing and working on something. I still have more questions that need answers. Hopefully by the end of the day I will have some answers.

It also wouldn’t hurt for me to start writing down what I think happens at the beginning, middle, and end of this story. At least have something on paper that can be rewritten.

As always, happy creative endeavors.
