WARNING, I’M DRINKING!
Fueled by the effects of ethanol and swooned by the melodic sounds of 80’s and 90’s rock, the word smith has chosen to bedazzle… oh who the fuck am I kidding?!?!?
So, the consumption of Jack and Dew is currently taking place, and I decided to make an entry in this here blog thingy. Good idea? Not my fuckin’ problem <grin>.
I’ve got a lot going on in that abyss on my shoulders. I have reached a stalemate between Mind the Shadows motivation and other ideas ricocheting around in there. I am currently enjoying a World of Tanks feed from my best friend on Twitch. I just finished playing a little 7 Days to Die; it’s a zombie survival game to which I currently find myself having a mild addiction. Oh… I also raced last night. That didn’t go very well. And yep, I’m drinkin’ a little 😛
As for Mind the Shadows, I am missing that next piece of inspiration to drag my muse kicking and screaming back to chapter 7 and beyond. I know I have to get Marek and Jammer on the same page so that they can work together getting Marek’s shit together, and that’s great. It will likely increase the bond they already have when Marek shares his big secret. Jammer will definitely want to know more and help his friend deal with it. In fact, I think it should be pretty easy to tie that off and take the next step. I need a catalyst to push that over the edge, though, and I kind of got one, right? Yes, Jammer is going to look into who tried to connect to Marek’s Net box. But I’ll be brutally honest; I don’t have a damned clue who that is yet. I suspect figuring that out is the key to getting this road on the show again, but I’d be shittin’ ya right now if I told you I had any idea who that is and exactly what’s going on there. I think that’s the big stick in the mud.
The other ideas are one each of sci-fi and fantasy. The fantasy is some older shit that I kinda want to revive from my gaming days, but the needed work, as I perceive it, feels a bit daunting. I might actually enjoy it given the nostalgia I’m likely to experience resurrecting some game night memories, but I also see the other idea and Mind the Shadows as other avenues to be… lazy? Less work? I dunno.
The sci-fi idea is something that’s just starting to take shape in my head. I haven’t put a word down yet. I’m not sure if it’s overly original, but I’ll likely have fun writing it if I can actually start to drop that mental turd. Yes, with that remark, I’m allowing for the possibility that it’ll stink <grin>. I guess I need more head fiber, though.
Oh well, I guess I’ll knock off here.
The race? Bah! It was a league race where I got myself into a bad situation on the first lap. I panicked when someone else made the situation worse and hit a guy that I shouldn’t have even come close to touching in spite of our proximity. It created some bad vibes. It was implied that I did something that I know I didn’t actually do – and wouldn’t do, and it kinda torqued me. I thought I had a better reputation than that. I think now, though, things are cool between me and the guy whose race I ruined. No hard feelings, I hope.
Now I’m done… later.
