A Chat with Myself

"Mind your tongue," a voice whispers in my head. Insulted, I question it. "Why should I?" I ask. "Because that's what is expected. Because you can't unsay what's been said." Well everyone knows that. "Just tell them what they want to hear." "You want me to lie?" The voice sighs. "Clarity is not so easily… Continue reading A Chat with Myself

Learning and Stuff

Just wanted to say today that I think I'm finally out of my rut. I think I can finally get back to work for real this time, especially since the the kiddos are all back in school and now the library won't be an ironically loud mess. That was part of the problem, but certainly… Continue reading Learning and Stuff

Write Tunes – Grammatology

Yeah, I know I forgot to post Monday. I suck. In my defense, I was really busy and didn't even have time to think about what to write. I'm still really busy today but I didn't forget this time! So here's a quick one. This song has some fantastic lyrics. Like gives-me-goosebumps lyrics. But it… Continue reading Write Tunes – Grammatology

Sensation

I'm struggling to find something that hasn't been said already. I know there's some string of words that wants to be said but it's all so familiar now. Honestly, I'm having trouble pinpointing my ideas for this post after watching the Sense8 finale this morning, and, just by the way, its brilliance and complexity cannot… Continue reading Sensation

Strength to Protect What Matters

So, quick progress update: I haven't felt this motivated in a very long time. Finally, I'm back in the headspace of almost exclusively thinking about writing and it's fantastic. But I'd be lying if I said I got to this point alone. If it weren't for my friend being genuinely interested in the story and… Continue reading Strength to Protect What Matters

Not too much longer

I procrastinate a lot. I mean a lot. Of course, I'm referring to writing this novel. Admittedly, I can say I'm procrastinating a lot less than I have been lately but it's still like pulling teeth to an extent. It's like I always just say to myself "I'll do it tomorrow" but tomorrow never comes,… Continue reading Not too much longer

Introspectively Optimistic

Is it weird that the very same characters that I created myself are helping me get through my depression? I really don't how else I can explain the phenomenon, but I can actually just close my eyes and just like have a conversation with them. And it honestly just makes me feel better. I mean… Continue reading Introspectively Optimistic

Balancing Feel and Story

More often than not, I'll forfeit the ability to experience a story with my own imagination via books for watching TV or a movie. It's weird to admit as someone who's studied English for the better part of his life, but I really don't love reading. I honestly never really did. In fact, unless I've… Continue reading Balancing Feel and Story
