Sorry, couldn’t think of anything particularly interesting to name this post. As some of you may, or may not, know; I write. Usually short little poems or stories that get lost in the ever-mounding pile of words that appear on this blog (17,812 words, to be exact). A few… weeks ago I started on a short story called The Staircase. It was just meant as a way for me to creatively write and possibly entertain a few people. Since then I’ve had several requests to make a book, or at least a longer story, out of it. So why not? Well mainly because I can’t stand writing dialog. It’s not that I don’t talk, I just don’t see the interest in characters talking. Actions speak louder than words.
Regardless, I’ve still started and grit my teeth as I got down a page or so of the book. It’s not meant to be a 600-page Stephen King novel but it could serve as a short essay. Entirely fictional of course. Except for you paranormal people out there, then it could be entirely plausible as a story. (No, please don’t take that last sentence as mocking paranormal events, I totally support people’s research, as long as it doesn’t involve bumping tables in the dark and screaming.)
In other (news?) I thought singing could be a fun experience. Now before you get the idea in your head of a web designer on stage with a choir, let me stop you. I mean more of Linkin Park/Marilyn Manson/Nirvana type singing. Maybe Nirvana was a bad example? No, wait, that’s right. Yeah, just basically anything with a lot of rock sounds and probably low vocals. My voice isn’t keen to going high, although I might have some disagreement from friends. Anyways, if I make any interesting music I’ll be sure to post it as a podcast thing on here. So….. stay tuned? (Such an odd phrase for this century.)
I should be getting the gel out of my hair, cleaning up my house, and figuring out why the hell my computer won’t boot Windows. But instead I’m “stuck” behind my incredible blogging platform, which brings up the thought of the Droid Incredible… No, I’m not a Verizon salesperson, almost wish I was though. If I get a Droid I’m figuring out some way to blog from it just because I can. Have no idea why I told you guys that. Starting to see my thought patterns? See, and just saying patterns brings up the idea of changing my Twitter background pattern.
Let’s talk about my psychotic writing tendencies. Yep, I want to hole up in a dark room with it drizzling raining outside and write for days about everything from insects to human nature. Here, have a little delve into my creative mind…. (yes, it’s copy-written ©)
“When socialistic ideals failed to control us, we started a war. More than half of all the resistance was either dead or imprisoned, and it appeared the rest had abandoned all hope of coming back for us. I looked down at the uniform that once identified me as an Italian soldier, now it labeled me as just another poor animal trapped in a maze.”
