I haven’t been around much. You must be struggling to survive without random blogs about random nothingness. Well, good news. I’m full of random nothingness right now. Here goes.
Just a quick post to share the September calendars for some #amwriting hashtags games on Twitter. Here ya be.
I’m writing again! And it feels fantastic!
Of course, it has no plot. I don’t know if it should be a novel or short story. I’m having continuity issues. Past tense writing is hard!
But I’m writing again!
*Me. If I had a slinky. And looked like Johnny Depp. So, not me.
I’ve been MIA this week, but for my return, I bring you a video that always makes me laugh. I wouldn’t say I’m a fan of Family Guy. I do love this clip though.
Have you seen this?
This little video makes me so happy. I had to share. We need more media like this.
A new month means a new batch of #amwriting prompts. Time to share. It helps having them all in the same place, no?
Happy writing, all!
*I’ll be updating this as I discover more games.*
a.k.a. Things You Wish You Could Say to People
I’m stealing from Twitter again. Strike that. I’m sharing.
This caption could also be, “First draft” and “836th draft”
Not that I can relate to that. At all.
Have a good one! 😀
If you’ve been reading my posts, you probably know I’m a fan of inspirational quotes. I’m not saying they work. Like, I’m feeling down, I read one, and suddenly I feel like I can conquer the world. That’d be nice, but no.
I just like their optimism and positivity. Both of those do not occur naturally in me, so I think of these quotes as supplements–vitamins, if you will–that I take daily. I have a day calendar of these quotes, and I get a boost as I read them. The feeling soon subsides, but in that five to ten second span, life is a little more OK. The other day, I read a quote that struck me more deeply than some of the others.
And I wanted to share it with you.
For this Writing Wednesday, I give you John Green. Why? Because he is an awesome person. And that’s the only explanation you need. Case in point:
Man, I love him.
*Update: A twenty-four hour period must have magic in it. After whining about my lack of motivation and all the changes I need to make to my manuscript, I woke up the next day and tackled that beast ALL DAY LONG. Seriously, besides 2-3 hours, I stared at this screen. It’s not healthy and I don’t recommend it, but I got so much accomplished! I realize not everyone can devote all their waking hours to writing–nor should they–so I don’t take my situation for granted. But wowzers. It was cool. I haven’t felt that spark in so long. I had hoped I’d feel this way about a new project, but hey, I’ll take it.
