Is it finally time?
I used to write quite a lot back in the day. It was something I enjoyed doing and still do, although I haven’t really done any proper story writing in months now. Maybe it’s because NaNo is happening right now and I’m getting emails about it, but I’m suddenly thinking about writing once again. I’ve still got projects on the go so all I really need to do is open a Word doc and start going, but it’s getting to that point that I’m having a hard time doing. What’s more is that I’ve got a few new ideas that I’ve been trying to work on bit by bit over the past while, but as with all my projects they only get so far before the idea runs out and I’m stuck wondering why I thought this was so great in the first place. But even so, I still want to press on and hopefully come up with a complete story and actually write it.
As for the question raised at the outset, is this my return to writing? Probably not just yet, but it’s something I’m thinking about more which honestly is a good start. For the past few months I haven’t even been thinking about writing outside of weekly review stuff. Maybe during my break come January I’ll replace weekly review stuff with story writing instead, I’ll see how that works out. If I can get back into writing then I’d be really happy as maybe I can actually finish one of my many stalled projects. At this point that’s become my one and only goal, to finish at least one of my stories that I’ve got going. Once I reach that goal then I’ll figure out what to do from there. While publishing it would be nice, and I have mentioned that briefly in the past, at this point that’s the farthest thing on my mind. I just want to finish a story first.
Hmm, this is looking to be a very short blog post as I’ve pretty much said all I wanted to. I can’t even really think of anything else noteworthy to talk about. Oh wait, actually I can.
Last weekend I went on a small vacation up Island to a place called Tofino. Small surfing town which was a nice change of scenery. I might write a longer blog post and include pics and such of it, so I won’t get into the details of that trip just yet. I can say that it felt cool to see the actual Pacific ocean for the first time in a very long while. It’s strange to think about, even though I live on the west coast, I’m on the east side of Vancouver Island so the true ocean is a few hours away. Anyways, if I feel like it I’ll write a bigger post about that trip, just don’t ask when it’ll be out because I’ve got no idea.
And before I sign off, today is Pocky Day so be sure to eat some Pocky with that special person in your life. Although I might be eating a bit more than just the Pocky here.
Until next time, take care!
