Dayjournal ramblings…

Posted in Crazy Wisdom on Sunday, January 11, 2004 at 9:50 pm by flerly.

Finished HP4 again, since I had to give up On Writing while JT reads it. It’s no big deal, as I told him last night, when don’t I have 5 books littered around the house that I’m in the middle of reading? After HP4, I picked up Black House again, but didn’t get to start it. My mind has been reeling lately with the notion to write more. Nearly as soon as the lights were out I fell into a very vivid dream where I was finally writing a novel…. not the one I’m actually working on, but something entirely new. I came across the idea in the dream, started developing, worked out scenes and characters and remembered being conscious of how easy the creative process was coming to me, and somehow conscious that I was only dreaming and needed to wake up and write it all down.

Instead, I lazed all day, not wanting to get up. When I finally did, it was only to plant myself in the chair on the main floor in front of the only tv with cable still working, eat too much take out chinese, and do too little work.

Did manage to think about writing, though… followed a few links and read a bit about keeping journals to help keep in practice. I do use my journal for most of the things the article suggested… everything from a creative outlet to a shrink’s couch. Mostly it is just a place to type and babble when I’m bored out of my mind and feel like I’m accomplishing nothing.

Like now. I’m accomplishing a one-sided chat with JT, watching The Surreal Life 2, finishing one item of work I had to have done, and generally fighting the urge to just go to bed so I can wake up and know what I’m supposed to be doing because it will be Monday and I will have to work. It’s like… what do I do with myself right now? I have no idea. Really.

    You sound like me yesterday. Hung up in a malaise. Feh. I reckon we just have to mount the best and hit hard with the spurs to get moving again.
