I need to set some projects into stronger rotation in my days, and that also includes this blog. I took a seminar on Friday about projects, and effective communication, despite the fact that these posts can be spur of the moment, there is something to be said for a focused, thought-out post.
That said, it’s Sunday, I’m a bit moody, and tired. It leaves me little room for putting things together, and I’d rather be gaming. Since I’m not gaming, all I can do is put some effort into posting
Little writing got done this weekend, and I am reminded that I am not happy that. If I am to change this aspect of my weekends, I need to change my attitude. Writing is a passion, but it is also an investment. I need to invest in myself on a daily basis, even if it’s twenty minutes a day, at the very least I know effort was placed towards something I love.
Keep in mind each writing task is a separate project. For example, the blog gets its twenty mins, then the novel gets twenty mins, and so forth. I gotta get myself together.
Happy creative endeavors.
It’s an awkward moment where I look at the blog, and don’t know what to say. It’s a one word at a time day. Did some writing, attempted to organize a lot of my thoughts on paper and file. It seems daunting, but I liked getting the work done. World building is daunting, but I’m a break through this.
Yesterday I also goofed off and did some gaming, which sorta of relaxes me. At least I was able to forget the day which was a mix of busy and chaotic. With gaming, it’s a puzzle of sorts, as I am playing MOBAs, and trying how to make the characters better, get the mechanics down, and overall be better for the team. With MOBAs I get a mixed bag because some players are better at communication than others.
Other players I’ve to yell at players, and I’ve had my fill of obnoxious people, so I don’t need that kind of mess in my chill time.
I’m hopped up on latte, so please forgive the apostrophes. It’s very early for me, and I need to be a little hyped, or I may fall asleep while thinking. That said, last Friday I was adding notes to my novel, when I put down the word, “what happens if this story takes place in outer space,” which was a pro and a con. A pro is that this would be another layer to this story. The bad thing is, the layer would make this story a bit more complicated, and I haven’t sorted through my other thoughts.
That said, once things get sorted, then maybe addressing this layer might be plausible. A friend suggested that I save these notes fora separate story, which makes sense. I’m thinking spin-off of some sort. It’s too early to tell. There also needs to be a list of all the major characters on one page. Why? It will have all the major players on one page that can be referred to as needed.
I was thinking more on some stories I wrote concepts down for, and to no surprise, I added to this list yesterday. Then I giggled because it got funnier the more I thought of them, and I remind myself to work on them a little later, but I have a feeling about these ones. It might lead somewhere.
Now, back to note taking, and eventual more novel writing. Let me get that list out of the way, then move on.
Happy creative endeavors. Get it done. 🙂
Yesterday, I wanted a flow to my stale prose so I played a little with poetic meters to see what I could do with an economy of my fun words.
To make a post in the same way will take more time than I realized, and time is a little precious at the moment. Still wanted a post in, before I go to other tasks. Loved trying to write, and figure out how to be effective with writing. I could stand some extended free time to write, however, that is what my weekend may shape up to be like. I did get a few lines in for the novel, that will need revising.
Happy creative endeavors.
I played Trinity, the support Warframe, and had fun. My fave kind of distraction.
More Warframe game play. This is Saryn, a warrior who specializes in poison. She’s got mad crowd control (CC) abilities that take some methodology to maximize her attacks. She’s fun to practice/play and level up. I like the color scheme I put on her.
So the weekend I was consumed by gaming. I’ve fallen into another MOBA–Warframe, and I keep playing this thing alongside Paragon. I totally lost track of time, and for that matter, suddenly it was nightfall. I had a lot of fun being pleasantly distracted with the games. For me it was how to play better, and how to level the characters up to make them effective. Both games have multiplayer functions, and you have a choice of characters. Needless to say, I kept myself busy.
Now back to Monday, and the power of writing. I need to put more effort into the novel, and since I have the time, and won’t be playing games for the moment, I will put pen to paper, and write in my journal. I put a lot of ideas down on Friday, and one passage for the novel I need to add to. It’s the main character understanding and responding to the fact that that he makes too many foolish choices. At least he thinks this is the end of his bad choices. This writer knows better.
Needless to say the line needed time to marinate, and me to figure out how to make it work better, at least I hope it does. One word at a time, right?
As always, happy creative endeavors.
