Random thoughts

Discussion in 'Chit Chat' started by SeverinR, May 14, 2013.

  1. When I'm not just writing the feelings that are on my heart at the time, and am trying to actually write poetry about a topic, it takes me five pages of scribbling random phrases, thoughts and ideas to get five lines of anything usable...
     
  2. I should be asleep. I am not. I still have like 3 things I want to do (eat, read the latest book I started, go over my ideas again) I DONT NEED SLEEP

    (actually I do or i will in the morning)

    As you said yourself. You really do need to sleep.
    Eating is okay [you do need to eat but not within an hour or two of sleep - as it can speed up the metabolism].
    Reading a book? Maybe less so [if you are using a Kindle etc as the screen can wake you up].
    Go over your ideas? Imagine how much better your imagination will be when you are rested and ready to go...:)
    I've had years of insomnia and anxiety and have to keep very good sleep discipline to get even 4-5 hours a night.

    How others view the life of a writer is light years from the reality.

    People think we are sitting in a cabin, typewriter/computer in front of us, writing the next great masterpiece.

    When in fact our reality is more like this:

    Your sitting on the couch/recliner with your laptop balanced just right, typing furiously.

    He kisses her fiercely, the passion his kiss invokes is...

    "Hey babe where are my jeans? You know the comfortable ones I always wear. I can't find them." (Yelling from another room)

    Aaaaaaaaand now you have no idea what you were just about to write! (Grrrr)

    Oh yes, the glamorous life of a writer!

    Whew! Finals are (finally) over!

    Right now I'm taking time to de-stress and catch up on sleep. I'm also planning on getting back into a healthy routine for the summer, which includes setting aside time for writing and art so I don't get out of the habit. Usually without school to give my life structure I fall apart, but I'm hoping that with better time management and scheduling I can avoid that this summer. Hope to see you guys around more now that I have more free time!

    Sad.

    One of my favorite musicians just died. RIP Chris Cornell. You'll be missed.

    One of the best concerts I ever attended was Chris Cornell performing his first solo record, Euphoria Morning. It was a smaller venue, but this was the first, last, and only time I had a seat in row A for a concert. Not a single person between me and the band. I could see absolutely everything that happened on stage, as well as get a good look at their gear (which, being a musician, I was interested in). Fun show.

    Hard to believe he's gone, just like that.

    Sounds like there were some issues. It's a shame. I grew up listening to Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog was good, also Audioslave is amazing. His music lives on.

    With cars it's easy - you drag them home and bury them in the garden.

    This is not considered sicially acceptable with women (for some reason).

    Never have I known I needed something but never knew it until I received it until this exact moment. This musical is wonderful.

    Went to Nickel City Con today! It was pretty chill--not exactly tiny, but not as huge as the more well-known conventions. I mostly went up and down artist alley, bought a few prints and some pins and buttons. I did get to say hi to Noah Schnapp (Will Byers from Stranger Things) and caught a glimpse of Billy Dee Williams. Overall, it was a pretty solid experience.

    Well, a broken AC in my server room at work has left me stranded here all night waiting for the AC repair man. Waiting with no AC totally sucks, but I did finish my first short story in a long while. Currently 600 words longer than the posting guidelines where I want to submit it, but I find a way to rewrite those away.

    Submitted my first story for publication in, well...maybe in years. See how it goes. If it gets accepted, that will be one goal off my goal list.

    Had to cut 400 words to get it into the 1500 word limit, which sucked, so if it does not get picked, I'll be putting them back.
