Change is Good…Sometimes

Sometimes change is good, and it’s better for writing, because writing is rewriting, however there are times what I know and do-in regards to writing -doesn’t really compute.

Wrote tings that I know can and will change, however I’m a bit stuck because I’m too attached to the material. So I need to leave some items alone for a while. That way I hope I can “divorce” myself from from the story.  This way I will look at it and be willing to cut or change without holding too much onto it.

Case in point, I have a script I have been thinking of lately, and I remember hating the ending, and there was a point where I *din’t* want to change the main characters, but forced myself to do it, because it wasn’t working.  I tweaked and tweaked trying to resit the change until I got frustrated.

Now, if I look at the script (and subsequent episodes), I know I’ve spent time away to make changes.  So maybe I can go back, reclaim and revise without too much attachment to it.  I don’t feel hesitation or reservation to cut or alter. Also I’ve had enough time to think of a new ending.

Also I need to make room for a couple of screenplays. Was talking with my brother and told him that was into some action films, and need to write a couple of my own.  I sense a  new project in my future.  Hopefully it will help me resolve older material too.

As always, happy creative endeavors.

I Need A Distraction

This distraction needs to be a writing task. For some reason I feel I am so far off track with ideas and can’t get myself together. Perhaps it’s time to start a new screenplay or script for a comic to get my mind off my current project.

So this will get my gears going and help me focus on something that’s productive since I can’t get this novel to gel the way I need to.  Screenplays I can get done and focus on.  I feel like a mess right now.

Something’s stressing me out, and I need it to go away ASAP. This means looking at what’s going on.  Time to start a day journal and see where my time goes. It may be that I’ve gamed too much and now I’m bored that I’m not gaming.  Life is more than games, despite the fun they are.  Games ain’t paying my bills, nor is it 100% fulfilling me.

If it were a job though. I wonder how good I’d be.  LOL

Happy creative endeavors.

Goals

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.

I Had a Deep Thought, Then…

I was ready for a profound post to drop, then the moment left me.  That’s not a bad thing. Sometimes writing to write feels good to me. The holidays are a bit chaotic, not terrible, but feels hectic, a little fast, and me trying to get myself together.

I’m reminded that one must keep writing-for better or worse-to at least keep their minds fresh, and in good habits. Typical with me I start with a blog post.

Spent some time trying to write a humorous Krampus poem, and failed, but I might get back on top of that mainly cause I wanted to do something that was silly, possibly annoying (at least I think it is), but kept me writing in addition to my blog.

Failed to discuss the movies I saw in November and December. I did get to see Dr. Strange, and Rogue One.  I enjoyed both outings. Rogue One was strong, and I loved that in a Star Wars film.  Don’t get me wring, I like dThe Force Awakens, but this one had more impact for me.

More on that stuff later.

As always, 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.

Today

Not feeling too creative this morning. That doesn’t mean I won’t create a little bit later. At the very least I’ve done two things that I like so far. I tried to revise some plot ideas for story. When I’m writing this blog post. You have to start somewhere and this is where I start. Sometimes I think I just push myself too hard. It’s not like I wasn’t creative at all. I just want more. I have a screenplay that I’d at least like to put the characters down on paper.

No movies this morning or television shows to report. Coffee was okay, but it gave me no pep. I have half a mind attorney television off. I believe once it goes off, I will be asked why is it off. It’s a theory. Honestly feel like going back in my room and relaxing and not dealing with people today. Call it my cranky doesn’t want social interaction today mood. I’m sure that’ll change too. I need some video game therapy. It’ll help get me out of the funk I’m feeling by playing a game that’s probably going to beat the crap out of me.

Moved

I moved this weekend, and I’m not 100% up to par. I’m optimistic things shall fall into place. Writing consisted of writing poetry, songs, and jingles today. I have a lot more organizing to do.

I had too much stuff. Was happy to donate some clothes to a friend’s church. Had some clothes I couldn’t donate because they were raggedy and useless.

Right now watching the film, Predator. It’s nice to have a flashback with films.

Happy creative endeavors.
