Some Rambling on Writing

Chatterdank7

You know that whole thing about writing every day and how everybody should do it?

I’m not sure I really agree with that. I mean, I’m sure it works for some people.

But I tend to think it’s more like muscle training: occasionally, you have to give it a rest. If you don’t, your muscles don’t recover properly and your progress doesn’t properly get saved.

Not to say that I wouldn’t love to be able to write something I could fall in love with every day of my life.

Another big factor in my experience is inspiration. If you don’t experience life, you can’t write about it. You can’t glean the glimmers if you never stumble upon them.

Not to mention there’s that whole being able to achieve a proper flow state thing. The key to unlocking a flow state at will seems to be squirreling itself into new hiding places around my brain each time I think I’ve got a firm grip on it.

In other news, I’m reading Redshirts right now and it’s hella good. My first Scalzi book.

Anyhow, done rambling.

Have a continually and increasingly groovy day!

Just finished up an anthology for my Wednesday night class. Ended up doing all the heavy lifting/editing/formatting/everything, so I decided to make a logo to stick on the back of the book.

And I think it’s pretty neat. Makes me want to finally start my own lit mag.

So, yeah. Might do that this summer, time depending and such.

In other news, I will definitely be adding a sub-site dedicated strictly to gaming, so keep an eye out for Bearshaman Gaming to arrive any day now. It will largely be reviews and reflections on classic video games and classic gaming with lots of lame humor and will also very likely contain unhealthy amounts of nostalgia.

I need a damn nap. Not just a nap–a damn one.

Anyhow, have a continually and increasingly groovy day!
