It was never going to be easy,
I don’t know how,
You convinced yourself it would.
What grand delusion?
What strange drug?
Made you live in the world where this would be easy.
Oh sorry–I didn’t see you there,
I was just talking to myself in the mirror.
I tell myself,
This moment will pass,
The shadows will fade,
And only the bad memories will remain.
What am I writing for?
Every week I open my laptop,
And pound out a poem,
Or a chapter,
Or an article.
Or a meaning,
Bound up in these words,
Lost in translation,
Between my mind,
And this page.
And the eyes that read.,
Trying to glean,
From my strange dreaming.
Hello everyone, I am taking a brake from social media. If you read these posts on Facebook or twitter. You should notice you are still getting notifications there since I have automatic update set up. But you will only be getting what the automatic updater is posting. Normally I do clean up and stuff like that to make those posts look better, since the way wordpress does it is kind of dumb. But since I’m not even going to be clicking on the Facebook or twitter website that simply won’t be happening. I’ll probably be off social media until 2020 kicks off.
In addition, not only will I still be blogging, but I hope to blog some more with the extra time I’m going to get from not scrolling through my news feed. If you want to comment on anything feel free to comment over here on wordpress. Thanks for your time.
These words that you read,
Have no value.
Nothing I say,
Can hold a dollar amount.
Not because they shouldn’t,
Not enough people,
Hello everyone, today I’m going to share with you a few writing updates. Nothing major going on in terms of my writing. And the adult working life had been taking up the rest of my time. Now that I have a few day’s I’ve taken off for my wedding anniversary I want to spend most of that time with my wife.
Book Progress is slow but steady
Part of me wishes I could be as fast a writer as those NANOWRAMO people. Writing a whole book in the month of November is a minor miracle considering it takes me the better part of two years to write a full book. Maybe Lost Sun won’t take as long as the first book I wrote. But I’m only on chapter 4 so things are not looking good on that front. According to my computer the file for Lost Sun was created on August 19th so that’s at 2 months and only 4 chapters in. Yeah a full book in a single month would kill me.
The Cull of other writing projects
As I continue to make progress on both my book and my table top RPG system I’ve needed to cut down on more side projects. These projects were not something I’ve really talked about here so nothing really major. But it was really hard for me to convince myself that those writing project needed to be canned so I could focus on the projects that I actually wanted to get done. In the process of working on those projects I created–and then deleted a whole other blog….
Games and things
With Pokemon Sword and Shield coming out soon I’ve had a hard time concentrating on other things. I did pick up a game called Digimon Cyber Sleuth but I doubt I’ll finish it before the new Pokemon game comes out and that’s taking up all my time. Gosh I hope I can find the wherewithal to work on my writing during that time.
That’s everything for this week everyone. Until we meet again.
