Question

The question now imposed,  
The one I must answer beyond all reasonable doubt.  
All truth in one word that still escapes me,  
Yet I must learn it’s meaning to see the next scene. 
What secrets must I sacrifice to learn of this one words meaning? 
What things must be stricken from the record forever? 
So I may learn this one word? 

Ode to Spam

Authors note: This is an old poem–I actually have not herd anyone use the word spam for some time now.

I sing to thee, oh gods of distraction. You who have aggravated me so often before; I thought I was rid of you long ago. But as it has been proven time and time again, you will always be there to distract people from the main point. You are like the phoenix born again bringing a burning flame of flaming with you. Oh I see now that you must be that you must have a place in our world. But how people are so obsessed with you; why are you so why must you distract and why—oh crap this is spam isn’t it.    

Blog Journal 10/25/19

Hello everyone, I’ve been struggling getting these blog journals out on time. And with life in general but we won’t worry about that just yet. I can’t seem to get these done on time for whatever reason. And so I think I am going to rearrange the schedule yet again.

New Scheduale

This is what my new blog schedule is going to be: I will be posting Blog journals on Friday’s from now on. Re-blog Friday is going to become re-blog Monday. Micro stories and short stories will come out on Tuesdays and Thursdays instead of a poem, meaning you might get a poem, a micro story, or a short story on those days. In addition I am going to be writing Blog Journals every other week instead of every week. I might post other things on Friday if I catch the bug, and I could always use the big Wednesday sized hole in the schedule for something as well, who knows. All of these changes are in connection to something that I’ve realized lately, read on to learn more.

My Sleep Schedule is Terrible

I went thought the whole day yesterday feeling like crap because I usually only get 6 hours of sleep at night. This is good for my writing–but really bad for my health. And I need to lower my cholesterol as well and I have been told that getting more sleep is a good place to start.

This means I’m going to have to work hard on adjusting how I work on projects and how much time I spend doing things like playing video games and reading. There is only so much time in the day, and I need to start working on getting my 8 hours.

Current Projects and Changes

I am currently in the process of reviewing all my writing projects that I’ve been working on in light of my new revaluations. I don’t think I need to make any changes to anything yet–but it’s hard to say for sure. I’ve been making good progress on my book and I want to keep working on that, but there really isn’t a time-limit on when that needs to get done so I think I can slow that down in favor of focusing on some of my other projects.

I’ve been designing my own Table Top RPG as frequent visitors may know. And I have some people lined up to help me play-test. Getting that done is gong to have to be a priority for me right now since I will need to start testing that right away and the only way I can is to have my D&D group help me when the current game I’m running ends.

This also means that I’m going to have to slow down on some of the longer short stories I’ve been working on if I want get some of my longer projects done. This might also help to explaining why I will be doing Blog Journals every other week now.

A few Other Things

As the holidays approach I need to have realistic expectation about what I will get done during that time. The new Pokemon games are also coming out of the 15th of November and so there might be a slow down in content during that time. I don’t know for sure how this will effect the upload schedule, if I could predict these things I would but sometimes I write poems ahead of time and schedule them far enough in advance where it isn’t even a big worry. And then other times I write the poem or story that day and post it. So just be warned, I don’t know what’s going to happen with that.

For Fun

I started playing “Digimon Story CyperSleuth” It’s been a nostalgia trip and I think I will try to play that game up until the new Pokemon games come out. It will give me something to do and focus on until then. I have not gotten any more reading done. But I think that will go better once I get my sleep schedule in order.

That’s everything I have for now….

Until we meet again.

Perfect (Micro Story)

“For some reason I will probably never understand. It was more important for you to be right then to be helpful. So yes, you’re correct, in the most technical of ways, for the most technical of reasons. I will admit that your technical precision, and technique are more impressive then I’ve ever seen.”

“But that’s not what you asked me.”

“You wanted to know why everyone hates you so much. So I’m telling you now even though I know it’s hard to hear.”

“You never share your correctness with anyone. You horde it for yourself greedily licking up every last drop, as though your thirst will never be quenched.”

“Every Facebook post, every tweet. Seemingly the hottest of takes. Carefully thought out and considered so no one could ever find fault in you.”

“But believe it or not–people forgive fault, and imperfections. They can empathize with those. But this strange obsession you have with always being right. People struggle to understand why. I struggle to understand why.”

“Perfection is beyond our ability to understand. So your perfection, fake as it may be, is incomprehensible, and strange. So people look away in disgust.”

Twilight Calls

The shadows call,
And the nightmares weave,
A different sort of world.

The world of day,
And the world of night,
Both the world just the same.

And yet if you have never,
Seen the night,
You do not know the world.

So the shadows call,
For their dues,
Do not run away,
For the darkness too,
Is a part of life,
It is all life just the same.
