So all today I'd been thinking of things that I wanted to write about so as to start my daily post experiment on a great note (whatever that means - i'm still not certain, really), and all today I've been drawing a blank. This actually has been something of a theme with me and writing recently and part of why I decided to dust off my journal; I've been having the hardest time just sitting down and writing about anything that isn't directly related to educating a client, and it is sort of killing me. I mean, I've never found writing easy, but this current trend is sort of ridiculous to me and also something of a huge pain in the ass as I've still got two NPC writeups and two text props that have to get done before the Aralis event. Not to mention that I also should come up with advertising blurbs for Lloyd's items.

The truly stupid thing, to me anyway, is that I have no issue describing exactly what I should write, but that there is some sort of disconnect in my brain which won't allow for the translating of the ideas from words I am speaking to words I am writing. I've always had that problem, ever since I can remember, but in the past, it was a bit more mild and I could fight through it with just a little effort. These days, more and more effort is required and with the way life has been recently, I'm all out of spoon, as the saying goes. So I feel as though I either need to hire a secretary who takes dictation (he he, I said 'dic') or invest in the Dragon Tools software if I want to get any serious writing done any time this millennium. Interestingly enough, I actually wanted the Dragon Tools software for a while now, although I've always kind of worried that if I started using it, my writing skills would atrophy that much more. But I sort of feel like this is an unreasonable fear, so maybe I'll make an expedition to Best Buy on the morrow and see about picking it up

Huh.. Guess I had something to write about after all. Who knew? And on that note, I think I'll pack up my virtual quill for the night, for lo, I am tired.

It has been a long time since I have posted here and this makes me sad. Not that anyone still on LJ is really missing all that much in terms of my life but still, there was a time wherein I was posting every day and it isn't like the thoughts and feelings I had then aren't still here.

Clearly an experiment is called for! I'm going to start trying to do a daily post again and do my best to avoid just endlessly spouting how much I hate my job (I hate it a lot) or inundating y'all with anecdotes of just how awesome my son is (he is awesome).

Right, that is all for now. Carry on citizens.

My muse is a harsh mistress. I don't get it; in my mind, she dresses like a candy raver and I've never met a mean candy raver. So what gives? What have I done to earn her scorn?

I'm sorry baby! Just please, give me another chance!

In other news, I have a new found respect for writers. Dialog is a vexing thing for me and anyone who can manage it rawks the hizaus. Unless I don't like them. In which case, I appreciate their talents, but will not countenance any hizaus rawking by them.

right.

Had a good weekend consisting mostly of a trip to visit the in-laws and reading Name of The Rose with my love.

I've recently been inspired to do some writing - it should be fun I think. Been a long time since I've put my pen to to a willing surface other than blue test booklets, so I'm welcoming this creative muse.

Now to bed wherein hopefully my dreams of pirates and strange ritual magic will continue their visiting trend.

I'm out.

I think I had begun to forget how fun life can be some times.

Covenant was an amusing time last night - given the impending end of the game, Setec Astronomy is finally coming to fruition. Spill should be interesting to say the least.

Looked at the list of registered players for A2 and it was nice to see many a familiar face and even nicer to see some new blood to spill there as well. I'm interested to see how the social dynamic will work this time around - the players of A1 all amazed me at the depth of character and the gorgeous rp. Too bad I'll have to wait till the fall to see what happens.

Not much else to report, been sifting through my past entries and feel the motivation to recapture the posting magic as it were. We'll see if I follow through on that desire or not.

Hope you all had a good weekend (yes, even you lurkers).

I'm out.
