Desperately Seeking… Something
Time seems to fly sometimes, and not just when you’re having fun. It’s been about a week since I wrote anything here, and I think it’s because I’m not sure what I feel like writing about. The Velvet Cafe has seen some of my writing – Jessica, per her usual talent, has managed to put up a few topics that got me to respond. Theatre on film, Miyazaki, and scriptwriters forgetting about little things – she got some words out of me in her comments section – quite a few, in fact. But I still can’t seem to figure out what to put up here, sometimes.
It’s really easier to respond to someone else’s topic, rather than come up with your own. It’s part of the reason I started this blog – I wanted to say what I felt needed to be said, but at the same time, I didn’t want to usurp peoples’ articles from them on their pages. (Fortunately, Jessica’s very forgiving about my ‘walls-of-text’ comments on her site, even when they’re longer than what she wrote herself.) But, not reading as many blogs as I used to on a regular basis, I feel like I don’t have as much to talk about these days.
So, in response, I went to creative writing, but even that’s kinda blocked up right now. The two stories here were experiments – one to see what I could come up with as a short story at all (“The First Soul”), and one to see what I could do with a varied perspective (“Courier Duty”). Both were successful, I believe, though, I’m now not sure where to take the stories – I’m trying to develop the world, without actually getting into the main story that I have been imagining for the years that this world’s existed in my mind.
I’m a bit blocked, I think. I’m seeking out… something. A muse.
Something I’m watching? Already wrote about Glee and haven’t watched much else. Though I can’t seem to get “Defying Gravity” out of my head.
Something I’m reading? Still trying to finish Eldest and The Way of Kings but it’s a tad slow at the moment.
Something I’m doing? I’ve been playing a lot of Star Wars: The Old Republic and having fun, but I don’t have too much to write about that yet that I didn’t already mention before. I am 43 on my Mercenary (Taoren) now, though, and healing instead of DPS. Fighting with the urge to move to a hybrid spec, to DPS better while still maintaining healing, but I don’t think I’m good enough at healing yet to be ready to add DPS back into the mix.
Sports? My Sacramento Kings are doing terrible this year, and it seems like the majority of their problems stem from lackluster 3rd quarters. I don’t put any stock into the score (unless they’re way down already) before the end of the 3rd, since they seem to blow leads regularly at that time.
I guess it’s just a little “blah” right now – I’m hoping that just putting this up will get something going soon.
My 2 yen,
