So Much Edits

My brain is consumed by editing. Some days it works. Other days it does not. Here’s a few of the things that are working (or not working) for me during this trying time. Continue reading

Disappointing Endings

Tags

, , ,

Finally, months after most of them finished, I’m catching up on the TV shows I watch. Unfortunately, for the most part, I am underwhelmed, and even the ones I liked were usually depressing. (Seriously! Is no one on TV allowed to have a happy ending anymore?) But it got me thinking about story endings, and what makes them good or bad. Continue reading

Gratitude Redux

Tags

, , , ,

Well, turns out they lost my package. Resent the whole thing and it got here on Tuesday, so I’ve got half a Death Star now. Very happy about that.

And now I have the chance to try again for the whole gratitude thing. Yes, it’s so much easier when not aggravated. But still important to remember, and maybe if I work on all this now then I’ll be better at remembering it when I’m not feeling so thrilled with life. Continue reading

It’s really hard to figure out what to blog about when I have no particular areas of expertise and am not a very interesting person. I’m not. I don’t go interesting places, I stick pretty much to myself so it’s not like I’m getting into these crazy adventures all the time with my friends. Not that I don’t still have adventures, they’re just spaced out. I have my schedule and my to-do lists that I follow. I go to work, I come home and write, watch a bunch of TV. Continue reading

Songs and Books and Things

(How do people come up with things to write blog posts about? All I can apparently come up with is nonsense.) (But it’s my nonsense, so here it is.)

I am at a loss when it comes to writing about writing, and I’m hardly an expert anyway, so I’m trying to cast around and figure out what I can write about. So this is where I’m at, in a nutshell. Continue reading
