craving to write

(no subject)

I need coffee and some music. The latter is easy enough. Don't have to get up to get it. Gonna have to work up to the coffee.

So...last week there was a writing community spotlighted runaway_tales and I've been poking around in it for a few days -- checking out all the very cool prompts they have and figuring out the little ins and outs of how they work the community. Haven't read any of the pieces yet but i'll probably sit down and do so sometime soonish to help ease back into the whole writing comm atmosphere. And, in between doing that i'll keep pondering the prompts till i find a set that interests me.

I feel the idea of getting back to writing blossoming...it kinda sucks that I'm starting back at the beginning so to speak...but then again, that's when writing was fun. I let myself forget about the fun of writing and focused only on the stress and negatives and all the plotting and planning and stuff like that. I forgot that what i loved about writing was discovering the story as i'm writing it. I need to get that back and hold it tight before i start branching back out to the professional minded writing things.

I'm actually pondering NaNoWriMo....and it sounds kinda fun to me this time around. Maybe.

1. If there was one thing about your body you could change, what would it be?
I'd change my weight not so much because i'm ashamed of it anymore...but just because it would be easier sometimes to not have to deal with being full-figured in a society that spends way too much time dwelling on it. And yes...health wise it would be better. I wouldn't deny that.
2. Would you rather lose 10lbs or 10 points off your IQ?
um....lose 10lbs. :P
3. When you look in the mirror, are you happy with what you see?
Depends on the day
4. Have you ever dyed your hair?
Of course.
5. How often do you weigh yourself?
Two or three times a year. When i stress about my weight i just start eating more. Horrible cycle really. I do better just not worrying about it. And, for the most part i've come to accept myself as i am. If people have issues with it they can gtfo. lol

So....an update on me is due considering how long it's been since i've posted anything here.

I've replaced my WoW addiction with Warhammer Online. On the plus side -- it doesn't take up quite as much of my time and i've been doing a LOT more reading then i used to. I've also been thinking about writing again.

I know...I know. Seen me say that before, haven't ya'll? LOL

I finally am starting to feel like I'm getting my head on straight now that I changed job postions-- although maybe not completely. I'm still being silly in some ways but with a lot less stress. For those who might vaguely remember some friend locked posts from last year...nothing went far with that in the end but i'm talking to someone else now. Seems I didn't learn my lesson too much other than to slow the fuck down and let stuff grow on its own. :P
/end cryptic portion of post

Anyway. I'm still working on a dark crazy fantasy idea that I'd love to really get off the ground. And, for that I need to start writing and stop thinking or I'll over-think on it to the point where i've beaten it to death with all the reasons it won't work. Which has been my SOP for the last three years. Fuck. Three years. I can't believe it's actually been that long since i've really wrote hardcore. Jeez...time flies when you're not having fun, doesn't it? Too bad it flies even faster when you are having fun. :-/

I want to write a vampire and zombie story but i haven't really manage to wrap my mind around any thing specific. But....i think it's because i keep trying to put humans into the world. And who says they still need to be around?

Hmm....

Memories

Wow. Just went through and cleaned up some of the communities I belonged to on here. Many I took of my friendlist but was still member of them so...decided a little pre-spring cleaning might be in order. Boy, did a few of them bring up memories. Including a couple I'd created and never really did much with -- the word count one I passed on to someone else and the healthy writing one I just...sort of let die. The latter one still sounds like a good idea and I'd love to get it started back up but see...I have this issue with being bad with food when I start to think about dieting and moving into a "healthy" lifestyle. Whereas when I'm just not thinking about it at all -- I do much better. Heh. Case in point we have a "biggest loser" contest going on at work that i signed up for but now I'm thinking about dropping out -- cause I was doing soooo much better before I joined it. Crazy, huh?


But...I don't know. Maybe I will get back into that community. Granted -- I'd have to try and build it back up from the ground and I'd want help with it cause my attention span for livejournal, while getting better, has been spotty to say the least. ;)

Hmm.

Something to think on, I guess.

So..I've slipped a little looking at writing stuff, mainly cause there are a couple people I won't be able to talk to much anymore that I've been spending time with on WoW. One will be gone here in a couple days. The other...I'm not sure. :( I know he deploys sometime in feb, at least last I knew. :(


But, I have been thinking. Already my story idea for the 2yn has changed here and there so I really need to find something else to focus on in between working on the weekly assignments or I'm gonna just end up running with it. Which I don't want to do. I know the story isn't ready for it for one. And for the other, I want to give this course an honest chance. On the other hand, I'm failing miserably at commenting on others work. I really, really, really mean to do it so...someday soon I'm gonna have to just force myself to get it done. lol


Now, when I first started this workshop I figured I'd just write short stories here and there to fulfill the urge to write. But, you know what? Persephone is still sitting in the back of my head calling me names for not doing something with it, lol. Granted...it did go through submissions...and failed. But, honestly, I know more needs to be done with it (character development for one) and I was never happy with the way I ended it. Originally I wanted it to be first of three stories but I changed it up to submit it as just one story. Lately I've been thinking about the other two stories and debating on whether I want to give it a shot to actually get them written. I think I kinda do, truth be told. Now the question is...do I work on revision or start second story? Hmm. I'm kinda scared to start writing....it's been sooooo long. lol :(

So...time to start thinking on themes. Not my favorite subject when it comes to writing. I've always had a hard time recognizing them in stories -- published ones as well as my own written ones. But, I see where it could come into use and as it's the current class assignment I'm gonna have to sit down and figure stuff out.

I know, I know, nothing has to be set in stone. It'll be more of a guideline than anything. Still. not my favorite writing topic. lol
