Hello, my lovely Creators!
Today a friend of mine asked me to help him with a project he’s been working on lately. For a while, he’s had this idea of putting together a video game. His area of work is more on the technical side, so he has asked me to help with the storyline since he knows that I write.
It seems like a big project and certainly something that I’ve never done before. I’m not even sure how to begin something like that. My only real fear is that I don’t know how to do what he wants and it will snowball into a big mess.
However, it is a step in the right direction to get me more into the flow of writing and getting projects done. It’s a learning experience that I think will be good for me. I mean, “Hello!” look at how much I’ve slacked here.
The last few weeks have been one thing after another, and rather than seek refuge in working on my blog or coming up with new stories, I’ve been binge watching movies and TV shows.
I know it’s a kind of slump that occurs now and then, and I probably shouldn’t beat myself up over it. I just feel so unaccomplished lately. For those of you that attend to your blogs more frequently, how do you do it? What moves you on the days that you feel like you have nothing to say? What drives you?
I guess for me it’s about trying to find some sort of structure and routine that I’m comfortable working on every day.
Back to my original point, I’m going to attempt working at this project and see what I can do. I feel that, as writers, it is good to try to expand on what we do and branch out in unfamiliar areas. Wish me luck!
On a side note, thank you to everyone that reads my posts and likes what I have to say. It means a lot to me that you stop by, even for just a little while. 100 Words A Story is something that I’ve been working on for a while but can’t seem to get off the ground as I want, but that’s not going to stop me from committing to it. My hope is that one day I can put together a book of my flash fiction. This small space I’ve set aside for my writing is only the beginning, and I thank all of you who have started this journey with me.
p.s. Take a look at my new writing buddy!
Please, turn off the light. I don’t want to see myself in your eyes. I want the dark, I like the dark, and it covers me lovingly in dishonesty and lies. It’s a place where I can live out the luxury of fantasies and never see the truth behind your eyes. I only want to pull the dark up over my head, surrounding me, snug as a bug in a rug. I can’t stand my reflection, clear and bare, staring back at me, weak and weary. I don’t want to know how you see me. Please, turn off the light.
