Seeking Better Alternatives

I’ve been staring at the computer screen wondering what to write about. I’d like nothing more than to take a nap, but I’m running out of day and I still haven’t written anything. I wondered about writing the article about cultural differences between America and the UK, but I’d rather wait until I’m back up north to do that. Refamiliarise myself with my old haunts and friends, stir up some memories, and then write based on my observations.

I started to write about happened this morning, but I didn’t really feel like I had enough for a full article. I’ve mentioned before that my Mum practices complementary medicine. At least I thought I had. I can’t find the article now! She had a client scheduled for today, so helped her get my stuff out of the treatment room (where I’m currently sleeping and writing). The client cancelled, but we decided to make the best of having the table up and get us all balanced again and check for any adjustments needed to be made to our treatment.

My Sister had to act as my surrogate, because I was being difficult to read. She and Mum have worked together so much that it’s easier that way. It was fascinating watching my Sister channel my energy as Mum checked to see where the blockages were in my energy flow, and determined the best course of treatment. The results were a little different from last time, but with some overlaps. A combinations of homeopathic remedies and flower essences to help me deal with the underlying causes of my dependencies.

A dragon, because why not?

I also wondered if I should write a little about my own magic, my belief in witchcraft and the aspects that overlap or contradict the beliefs of my family. Particularly my Dad, the Reverend. I think I save that for another day too.

I also wondered about following up on my previous article about adjusting to not smoking pot every day, or at all in fact. Especially since that’s one of the things I’m being treated for. Along with adjusting to dramatically reduced caffeine intake, stressing about events taking place in America that I have no control over, and worrying about getting everything straightened out here in the UK.

I also thought about talking a little about I conversation I had with an old friend about Hermes925. As I was talking to him I realised I’m not happy with a particular scene in my notes. The series of events that lead to the protagonist being stranded in space, alone. Again though, not enough to actually do a full article on, at least not until I’ve actually done the re-write. I may get a start on that tonight, but I may also put it on the backburner until I have some idea which way I’m going to go with it.

Sleepy kitty, for reasons.

It also occurred to me that I’m putting a lot of pressure on myself to make this a trilogy, when it would be faster paced and more realistic to aim for a short story. It’s going to be written as a series of journal/log entries. It doesn’t fit with the protagonist’s character for these to be daily, or even weekly entries. In fact there could be months or years between entries. Just like my own journals. We’ll see.

I have Dark Crystal playing in the background, a pile of books waiting for me to read them, a pile of notebooks waiting to be filled, and another pile of notebooks and journals full of older writing to be sorted through. So I think I’ll just add links and pictures and call this article done. It’s a little disappointing, but they can’t all be winners. Follow me so you don’t miss out on the good articles coming.

Have a great day.
