Hello Reeders. I must say that I miss talking, well, writing to you all every day. I really wish I had the mind and thought to do so. I even realized AGAIN that I finished my outline for Little Schiz. I mean, that’s a big deal! Isn’t it? I mean, come on, I should be way more excited.
Then I realized, I AM!
…but just too busy to talk about it how much. But the next steps are on my mind every day at least. So, what’s the next step? Well, I realized that now that I have the skeleton down for outline, I get to add the good stuff. Meaning, all the crazy, insane and “wtf” moments that I think will really add to the story. I already thought of one today that I need to add.
Other than that, I am keeping up with my daily doses of amusement and inspirations on Writers Write. They had a very interesting tool that they added for us writers.Read More
The laundry was changed, the formal letter of recommendation was written, and it was time to finally relax for the day. It was 9:45 p.m., and I was ready to fall asleep… Problem was I didn’t want to sleep and waste the couple of hours that were left in the night. So I let my mind wander the story of Boss and her possible levels of schizophrenia.
“What’s next in the timeline?”
One thought after the other, and I realized there were only so many chapters left connecting where I was to the end of the story…That was when the light bulb went off in my head…Read More
Two days ago I was writing for the daily prompt. I really enjoyed the topic, but was unable to finish my thought. Yesterday was the same, and today may have started out to follow, but I SAY NAY! I SHALL WRITE TODAY!
The two prompts below all drew words from me, and I was excited to let them flow. Enjoy.
On May 8th…Read More
Only some short housekeeping for today…I didn’t get to the second prompt on Friday. I thought I would be able to find the time to do one but didn’t think about the actual time constraints I have. And I seem to have plenty. Needless to say, weekends are much better. So what does that mean? I’ll do prompts as often as I can, but may not get to them every day. Which is a shame because the ones I missed this weekend were great ones.
Ones said to write a poem about yourself. That would have been interesting. So, enjoy them as they come.
And here’s the next…This is the beginning of a journal entry for my Protagonist, Boss. I have much more to write.
On May 6th…Read More
Something very interesting I learned about myself and about sleep. There are definitely different versions of resting. The short version of this realization stems from the difference in my brain’s functioning from today versus yesterday. I’ll just say that I didn’t sleep as restfully as I thought I had for four days. I had woken up every hour, and even though I had “slept” from 10 to 7, I didn’t sleep straight through for any long period of time.
What does this mean? It means I’m not paying attention and not focusing on details and missing pieces. Example: I wrote from a writing prompt on Tuesday. It asked information about the Antagonist. Yesterday’s (which is coming today because it was my lovey’s birthday yesterday, and I was busy with Birthday Excursions) is asking about the Protagonist. Guess who I wrote about on Tuesday? The Protagonist. I somehow missed the word “Antagonist”, and assumed I was talking about the Protagonist. I blame the lack of consistent, solid sleep. (ahem) Sure this character is her own Antagonist, but I wasn’t writing about her Antagonist personality…
…so, today with a fresh and COMPLETE sleep, I will continue about the Protagonist as prompted. Oh, and I’ll give you a second post later for today’s prompt once it’s posted.
So, May 2nd…Read More
Work has tripled. Let’s start there. Ooopphhhh.
There are so many projects going on at work, that even finding the time to write ON TOP OF what I am already writing is becoming increasingly difficult. But, I think I found a solution to keep the creativity going…
Upon a stumbling through Google images for a photo, I came to a Facebook Book page called Writers Write. It has great daily(ish?) writing prompts along with great images, quotes and words (in other languages and with definitions too). I instantly “like”d the page and have been enjoying their posts ever since. It’s been about, oh, four days.
Well, today, I saw the writing prompt and decided I would officially start doing what it said and sharing here for you all to Reed. I need to keep the creative flowing, even with all this work to do.
So, on May 1st:Read More
Brain scientists and cognitive psychologists agree that being able to speak more than one language can be a great benefit to everyday life. Statistics show that bilingual persons make more money over the course of their career and are less likely to develop deteriorating brain diseases. But when is it better to speak two languages compared to one?Read More
It can be understandable to some how creativity can falter. Day after day, constant creation. Some of us may never reach that level of consistency. Have I, you ask? I am not quite sure I have. Most days I think about a post or something creative to write or draw or paint, and every other day I may actually accomplish what I set out to do…until creativity strikes.
And hardly striking, unfortunately, it has done the past five days. This was, of course, due to the expanded drive of creativity that I had for seven straight days. Interesting how one small suggestion can flare the creative juices flowing faster than the fingers or eyes or mind can travel.Read More
I had sketched this drawing a couple of months ago, and although I knew I wanted to paint it, I didn’t get a chance to until last night. Little Anastasia (who I had painted the My Little Ponies for) wanted to be creative last night, so I decided it was time.
Sorry for the low quality video. It was recorded in HD, but got compressed with lack of planning. But, it still looks good. I’m happy with it.
Tell me what you think!
Enjoy. And Watch.
With so much creativity flowing through me the past couple of weeks, it got me thinking about all the different ways people can be creative and HOW they make the final choice of what to do with the creativity they feel. As I talked about a couple of posts ago, I have a lot of creative projects going on and have a few to choose from. No, a LOT to choose from.
So, aside from projects that some, like myself, can choose from, others may just want to be creative in general. So the real question should begin with: what media are available to be creative with?
- Colored Pencils
- Paint (of a bunch of varieties like watercolor or acrylic)
