I Lost My Wallet

Four words I never want to utter, nor think about. Yet today I did. Was sure my wallet was in my pocket, as I placed it there, or at least I thought I did when I was distracted.

Needless to say this morning as I knocked over some papers, bent to pick it up, I dropped my wallet in the process.  Without realizing this, I walked outta the house, got to work, and didn’t have a clue.

Of course, I needed to get some coffee, and I reached for my wallet, only to find it wasn’t there, and I had no clue as to where I misplaced it.  I retraced my steps, and it wasn’t outside.  I went into panic mode.  I got permission to go look for it, and went home thinking it may have fallen in my patio.

Over time I found where I dropped it, which was a relief, but I was rather dismayed that I could have potentially had my info and bank card stolen.  That’s all I need within the course of my day to be saddled with the drama of freezing my card, replacing my items, and just feeling ok.

Since I was able to calm down some, I’ve been trying to be grateful and should do some writing, which I haven’t, but for me, starting with a blog post helps put me in a writing frame of mind.

Happy creative endeavors.

Saturdazed

It’s Saturday, and I’ve been slow to get started. Wanted to rest longer, and stated so, but awakened by a happy family who really didn’t understand I didn’t want to be disturbed. I miss having an apartment, and calling the shots on when I’m going to get up. Change is life, though.

Have to use cheap allergy meds this week, and they are less effective, and make me sleepy as all get out. That really does make being awake an annoyance, when it should be the asset. I will have to tough it out. I like the relief it offers, but OMG, it taxes my system. Boo to that mess.

Writing exercises fell low the entire week, which coincided with the change in my shift, and me refusing to go to bed early. I was a little too stubborn for my own good, and something fell off. The writing quality took the hit. That has to change.

Now that I have some time to reflect on what I didn’t do, and how the minimum became the norm, I’m ready to get back on the horse to my regular routine of writing, and trying to get myself into creative shape.

Happy creative endeavors.

A Christmas Eve Post

Rather than think too hard on this, I’m just gonna write what comes to mind. So it’s been a long, long month, that started in November with me doing overtime, and lasting long enough to scramble my internal clock. I mixed up days and time was a bit off. Even waking up became a chore, and I hate when that happens. So now, it’s break time.

Hoping my creative batteries will get recharged, as the semester is now over, and I can relax a bit, minus the usual family going ons where  I need for people to chill out, and not try and stress me. Why is it that holidays bring on stress when they should be happier and more peaceful times?

So, as I said to myself, I need to chill, the first thought that popped up in my head was to get this blog post done. So here were are, blogging, and ready to post for the holidays. Not sure if my creative power has been charged, but I know when I blog, I typically feel good about creative writing in general. Especially because I don’t feel like I’m forcing myself to write.

On another not, I feel a little lighthearted about creativity, and don’t want to take it serious in the least, just play around and goof off, and not be so weighty. I might end up with deep thoughts, but it started with me not trying to be serious, and enjoying moments of creativity.

Happy Holidays, and happy creative endeavors.

P.S. I want to write some horror stories.  Not sure if I’ll be good at them, but something short will be fun–or maybe scary.  LOL This is the result of reading Poe and watching Universal Horror films at a young age.

Maybe if I don’t think too hard on the concept. Lightly flesh out (pardon that pun) a concept, and go. Don’t think too hard, or I’ll collapse in a fit of frustration, and boredom.

Friday is Not and Easy Day

For the record, I wrote in my print journal, and took notes on how to go about projects, which helped me kick off my creative aspects. I’m still having a busy day, but I felt the need to at least keep something creative going.

One thing I did is create a project list. While I have eleven slots, I only filled seven. Then I wrote what I thought the them of all the stories were, as well as thought about how some conflicts can hit closer to home–thus I related to some of the characters far more than I thought.  I’m curious to see what transpires.

This is also my last overtime weekend, and I couldn’t be happier. Creative-wise, my time brief. Heck even my video game time is dried  out.  So after this, I hope to be able to have the weekends to myself, or I may need an extended break to de-stress.  LOL

Happy creative endeavors.

Cooking Day

Woke up with some serious neck pain, which would have led to a migraine if I didn’t take my pain reliever meds. So a major, lingering pain was averted.This did make getting up and being functional a task more than it needed to be, but at least I was able to get up and about to get stuff done.

I decided I needed to cook, so the menu was hamburgers, gravy (with onions and mushrooms), rice, and broccoli w/cheddar. Mixing the ground beef was the biggest chore. It always seems to get messy, and i never have enough spices. LOL It all got done though. Mom took the cake when she told me, “this gravy is almost as good as mine.” I’m thinking she just wants me to cook again. Then she adds. “I’d serve this to my friends.”

Do I really need my head gassed that bad? LOL Ego aside, I like when people are happy with my food.

Made myself stop gaming, and editing gaming footage to get some kind of writing in today. Gaming could be a treat for later on, but I’d like to get some focus done, and perhaps line my creative projects up better. So after this post, i start a new journal, and document my progress, or lack thereof.

Happy creative endeavors.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving. There are many things to be thankful for, such as living, having a job, or even another chance to be creative again.

Been slacking off, as the semester revs up to finals, and the library’s going to be open longer. This means I’ll be busier, and somewhat stressed out. Those days pile up to a point where I personally *don’t* want to do much but not be stressed, or frustrated. It happens, then the finals is over, and I go rest.

One thing that helps me de-stress is writing–even though it can frustrate the heck outta me, and I know, like I always do, is go back to writing. That said it’s time to think and do more writing. I’ll talk less about it until I have completed material to talk about. Did have some random ideas I wrote down, and I feel I’ve got a lot of unformed ideas.

Today I did some cooking, spent some time with fam, and now after eating, I just want to be mellow. Somehow I needed up thinking of my blog, and knew what needed to be done.

Happy creative endeavors.

I Get To Brain Today

For the record I am still being creative, and still writing even though I am playing video games. For the past couple of days my mind has got into rethinking some projects. For the novel, I had an idea that changes the main character a whole lot. I don’t know if it’s a good or bad thing, BUT it is a legit idea that helps me add to the story. I’m excited and nervous. It may be what I needed to push the story in the right direction.

Tuesday is also Election Day. It could be a wonderful, or terrible moment in US history, but we won’t know until the election is over. Voted early, but still, I’m guessing the drama will arrive and be a nasty stinking hot mess. I hope and pray the night will be good.

I hope people will come together and be better for the nation. This is a great nation, I love being an American, working hard, and trying to be better each day. I hope the world will be OK.

Happy creative endeavors.
