I don’t usually blog the day-to-day kind of stuff, but thought I might shake things up and give it a go.
It’s been nice to finish my writing early today, to work past the difficult portion and sail into the calmer waters of Having A Clue Where The Scene Was Going, and being able to get it there with a minimal amount of fuss. I’ve split my time the past two weeks between producing work and reinvesting in my skills to better my work. It didn’t help that when I looked at the page, I promptly forgot everything I should do and could only remember what I shouldn’t do. The result of this was that I sat there staring at the screen. Not a very good way to write a story. So I stuffed that part of my brain into a box and just wrote. The nice thing about being done for the day is that I get to do other things guilt-free.
This video is amazing: Run Boy Run. It reminds me of both Where the Wild Things Are, which I’ve neither seen nor read–a crime, I know–and the game “Shadows of the Colossus,” simultaneously a beautiful game and one I can’t play without feeling terribly bad about playing it. Follow the link to see it bigger. It’s HD, after all.
Read a (digital) comic book today, one of a very few that I’ve read in my life (first issue of Eternals, for those curious). When it comes to comics, I mostly just read the text very quickly, and then feel bad that I almost didn’t even look at the art. So then I go back and look it over for a while, when I remember to do so, and I imagine that that’s not how one is supposed to read a comic. Does that mean I’m more of a text person than a visual person?
Right then. That’s all for now, so off I go.
