I’m having a serious case of writer’s block. I started an article that I think would really work for this assignment that I have, but the words just aren’t coming easily. Usually, I have no problem hammering out something quickly, but for whatever reason, I just haven’t had the motivation to finish this one. On top of not having the motivation for it, I HATE it. It’s not coming together quite the way I want it to, and it just looks like a discombobulated mess. I wouldn’t worry so much about it if it weren’t a piece that was supposed to act as a pilot for a website that I’d REALLY like to write for. No, not IGN.
I’ve been really bad about keeping things up to date since getting this new job. I’m enjoying the work, and I still think I made the right decision, but my content is suffering for it. I guess that’s just life. I need to fix this shit article I’m writing before Sunday, and I have a podcast a party, and likely other obligations in my way. It’s going to be a week of no sleep, and while I’m not happy about that, at least I have a workspace to do it in.
Yeah! I Frankensteined a computer together mostly using parts that Exit from Found Gaming and the Retroholics Anonymous podcast generously sent to me. On top of that, I have a desk and dual monitors! The very definition of productivity.
I guess I just feel overwhelmed by the massive amount of things going on in my life right now. And to top it off, I’ve got some family obligations that I’ve been selfishly putting off…it may be time to address those sooner rather than later…as I’m not sure how much more time I’ll have for that.
Free writing is the best, ain’t it? I use this to work out my blocks whenever they pop up. I mean, I don’t completely go free writing mode, as I do go back and correct mistakes, usually without thinking about it. Typing is weird like that. It’s like your brain knows you made a typo before you actually realize it. You make the type and before you know it, you’re already backspacing. Crazy how that works.
I’ve been playing Super Meat Boy, which is really good, though a bit disgusting. I mean, what is Meat Boy? A clot of blood? A sack of raw meat? I don’t really get it. He spews blood EVERYWHERE. It’s gross.
UUUUHHHHH WRITING IS GOOD!!! GO WRITE! It makes you a much better person. Not really. Thanks for reading this mess!
