We are currently in the NaNoWri-Month.

I am not a writer.

.

Sometimes when I sit by myself on my bed, lost in my own thoughts, I play through various scenarios and conversations in my head.  This is not unusual by any stretch of the imagination, by the way, apparently this is something everyone does more or less regularly. It is quite similar to dreaming, which is probably why it is most commonly known as “daydreaming”.  Anywhoozle, these scenarios that run through my brain are most often “what if” situations played out or explored.  “What if I had said yes instead of no?” “What if I knew this person and had to explain my life to them?” “What if I got transported back in time?”  These are but a few examples.

What annoys me is that I can do this for a really long time, basically playing out half a movie in my head, and I never write it down.  I don’t think I`ve ever written one of these down.  Earlier today I realized that I am basically writing bad novels in my head without writing them down.

Let’s try to write something.

“A picture says a thousand words. Write them.”

aka  I WROTE A THING!

After one miserable swing, she put her rather pathetic-looking ax immediately back down again and turned around to address her not-so-silent follower.

”You know, you could actually help me with this?”

There wasn’t exactly an answer, but the great lump waiting in the background blew out a small gust of air in what sounded suspiciously like a huff of laughter.

“Some friend you are.”

She heaved her ax again, and hit the giant trunk once more. This was going to take possibly forever, and she was so not looking forwards to however many hours of work it would take her to fell this great-grandfather of a tree. How old was this forest, anyway? She’d tried asking the creature a couple of times, but getting an answer out of that one was a lost cause on most days. She guessed she would have to settle with counting the rings of the tree-trunk or something equally tedious.

“Couldn’t you at least do something other than just sitting there doing nothing?”

No answer. No movement, either. If the creature had closed its eyes at that moment, it would be almost impossible to discern it from the surrounding nature. Said eyes might have shifted a bit, giving the tiniest indication that at least the light was on inside – pun not intended. She had absolutely no idea why the creature’s eyes did that glowing thing in the hours around dusk and dawn, and of course she could never get a straight answer out of that one, whatever it was. Now that she thought about it, it dawned on her that it was already getting fairly late in the evening. There was no chance whatsoever of her even reaching halfway into the trunk before full night would be upon them, never mind actually felling the whole tree. And why had she felt the need to overpower such an old entity all by herself? As she scratched her neck in thought, the light continued to withdraw from their surroundings. Ah, that was why: Shelter; Desperate times, and all that. There weren’t really any other trees of useful size growing in these parts, even if one happened to count the tiny apple tree holding on with its rather impressive roots to the great lump with the now fading eyes, who was not being the greatest of help at the moment.

I`ve learned how to make lies into truth.  It’s very handy for social interaction.  In fact, I`m very well liked for it.  And the best thing is, it stopped being lies and really did become the truth!  For example, I`m very good at giving casual compliments.  Little things, like “Nice blouse!” or “You write really well.” and that kind of stuff.  That’s not lies, it really is true.  But it took me years of training through lies to end up there.  Don’t ever tell me lies can’t be good!

Dear Brain,
.
Why do think it’s okay to never settle on anything?  Is there a reason why I can’t keep an interest in the same thing over a period of time without tiring and wanting to do something completely different?  When it’s about knitting and painting, that’s no problem at all.  But when it takes over my blogging, my school work AND my social life, then “Enough. Is. ENOUGH!” and I would kindly ask you to stop messing with my zen thing!

.

Faithfully,  Me

.
PS:  I have found out what the perfect weapon against you really is!  It’s a steady lack of sleep, and I really don’t wish to use it since it damages my body equally as much.  May I please  just get some good rest, without you pushing me into serious bipolarism?   This is getting ridiculous!

Can’t believe how stupid I am…

Today, I almost ruined THREE of my four blogs, all in LESS than 2 minutes! Wow, what talent I show.  What’s next?  Deleting all my posts?  PLEASE don’t let that happen!  Gah, the last three hours have been spent on re-writing all my codings and widgets.  On the plus side;  This blog looks fantastic now!   Maybe not so very different from before, but I added some nifty little stuff like those links with pictures (see left bar) and some small do-dads.   I`m proud.

Oh, sigh.

I`m in the Emokid kind of mood tonight.  I`m not depressed, I`m not sad, and I`m not really emotional either.. I`m just feeling a bit down, a bit low.  Maybe a bit under the weather?  Or just plain ol’ tired.  I believe it is the influence of bad habits and procrastination catching up with me, as well as too much thinking about life.  I am usually the expert on ignoring reality, it’s just that reality has this annoying ability to turn around and bite you in the bee-hind every once-in-a-while!

And when that happens, things will catch up with you.   Sooner or later.

Preferably later.

And while I’m on this happy note!  …nothing.    I don`t really feel like writing anything, because I have nothing to write about.

And this may very well be the reason behind my non-depressive depression, since I`m supposed to be finishing a text about the book Interview with the Vampire by tonight..
