It’s late and I’m running out of ideas

Alright, no, I lied.  I have a million ideas… how do I get them out?!  That’s the thing, surmounting this writer’s block, putting down the things I want to talk about.  I think maybe this is the first step.

Forgive the next few days of my bumbling, trying to find the content and ideas I want to express.  But after a long reprieve and some serious soul searching after surviving a natural disaster, I’m ready to reach for my dreams.

Inspiration comes in many different places

In Transit – Daily Prompt

Train stations, airport terminals, subway stops: soulless spaces full of distracted, stressed zombies, or magical sets for fleeting, interlocking human stories.

Well, for me, it’s a combination of both.  Huge transportation hubs are just a collection of distracted, stressed-out zombies… that are ripe for story picking.

It goes hand-in-hand with my new idea, that every one has a story tell.  This is the complete opposite, you can make a story out of anyone.  It’s one of my goals, when I get all of my ducks in a row, to pick out a random person once a week and make-up a story about them.  There are a lot of people who rely on public transportation here.  Sometimes I see people who are blissfully happy, people who are upset and then people who are drunk out of their minds.  And really, with a bit of imagination, you can take the clothes they’re wearing, the look on their face and their body language and craft your own story.

Which is fully what I intend to do.  And maybe my story will hit somewhere near to the real thing, and maybe sometimes it’ll be so far off that there’s no way it could possibly be true.  But that’s the wonderful thing about writing fiction, you can make it whatever you want.

So, I’m sorry to the random people I’m going to pick out in the future.  I’m going to write something about you, and I hope that maybe, one day, you’ll read it and realize that it’s about you.  If that does happen, make sure to let me know.

Just keep posting… Just keep posting…

I have a bunch of ideas swimming around in my noggin, but I don’t feel like I can do them any justice.  It’s like a jumbled mess of wires that I have to untangle before I can really get down to the nitty gritty.

When I re-started my blogging process in the beginning of July, I made myself promise to write at least one longer-ish and meaningful post a week.  Just once a week, and the rest could be fillers, daily prompts, etc etc.

But I can’t seem to make the words come out.  The list of things I want to write about continues to grow:

  • Student Loan Debt
  • Favorite Movies/TV shows/Video Game (reaction/reviews)
  • Illiteracy (Something near and dear to my heart)
  • Happiness
  • A New Series of Blogs (This is a secret until I really get all of the details worked out) =]

There’s plenty more, but those are the main ones.  I’ve also had a million different creative writing ideas as well… but those words won’t seem to come either.  I’m planning two posts over there today: the next in ‘Sentence-A-Day’ (check it out if you haven’t! – http://strokeofthepen.wordpress.com/2014/07/01/july/) and something new.

I want to do a post about the first-half of the year, all of the ups and downs and how I feel now.

If I can’t sleep, maybe that’s what I’ll do.  I checked the DP today and it didn’t really interest me much, so I don’t think I’ll be doing that.

Just another entry to collect my thoughts I guess… who knows what the rest of the night will bring.  Sleep hasn’t exactly been my friend recently and my back has really been acting up.  Oooh, I could write about that.  Maybe tomorrow.  ^^

Generating Ideas

I have all these great ideas I want to research and discuss here, but no energy to actually do it tonight.

So here’s a look at things coming up:

– Being deaf in Michigan
– Willow Smith’s new video (whoa it’s generating a lot of buzz)
– More ‘blah blah’ about writing and curing my writer’s block
– Starting another blog with a specialized interest (more details to come)
– Party Planning Ideas!
– Harry Potter Books vs Movies (a battle royale with my family!)

Among other things I’m sure.  Probably going to have the HP discussion tomorrow… I should probably take notes.

Oh, and by the way, so far right on track.  Posted everyday in July so far!

Until tomorrow!
