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.”

Blog Journal 10/11/19

Hello everyone, as you may have noticed it’s Friday and I am writing my blog journal today instead of on Wednesday. Honestly I got distracted working on one of my projects the table top rpg I’m designing and as such forgot that I needed to write a blog journal until latter. Not a big deal over all but I have no idea how many of you actually look forward to reading these so I tend not to stress out about it to much.

As you might have guessed I’ve mostly recovered from being sick though there are a few lingering symptoms that I’m working through. Once I’m back up to 100% I should really remember to get my flu shot. Maybe if I write it down here I won’t forget.

Poems, Micro Stories, and blogs

As some of you might have noticed I have started writing micro stories (or maybe just short, short stories, I’m a little unsure of the definitions) you can check out my first one here. All in all I liked how it turned out and I want to write more of these, but I’m not really sure show to optimize my schedule and creative time with this new addition to my repertoire. I could write micro stories and then write one less poem that week. Or I could write two poems and a micro story–but honestly I’m not sure how to is going to feel on my end considering the whole point of only doing two poems a week is to keep myself from burning out. I’ll let you guys know what I’m going to do about that next week. But for now enjoy the new posts you’ll be getting.

Other Projects

As I said earlier I got distracted working on my Table Top RPG system that I’ve been designing. And so that’s coming along nicely. But due to that not a lot of progress has been made on the book I’ve been working on writing. Honestly I’m not really sure which of these two major projects I should be prioritizing. So it seems like each week I end up working more on when then the other–then I wonder if I should have been working on the other project instead. Maybe one day I will understand how to manage time properly–but it is not this day.

What have I been reading and playing

I’ve finally gotten around to doing some reading, and I’ve been working my way though the Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemisin it’s good so far but I’ll have to wait until I’ve made my way all the way though to know for sure.

I’ve been playing a lot of games since I was so sick over the past few weeks. I’ve been working my way though another play-though of Pokemon Sun, I’ve been trying to find time to play Fire Emblem Three Houses, and I even took a crack at this new RPG called Indivisible (no relation to the political movement group).

I think that’s going to have to be all from me for now. But I do intend on blogging for re-blog Friday as I always do. Have a good weekend and I’ll talk to you next week.
