Here’s a new idea that I’ve had: find games that are fun to chill-out with, but probably shouldn’t be, and write about them. Don’t consider this a review, though – I’m just poking holes in silly games and finding unexpectedly fun things about them (even if it’s a bad thing). There are a few I’d like to write about, but I’ll start with what I’m currently playing.
It’s funny how long-distance space travel seems like – if not a far off possibility – an inevitable necessity. Assuming, of course, we don’t eventually push our planet to the brink of destruction. Eco-Activist Sensibilities, Activate! Renewable energy! Nuclear power! Compost Toilets! Oh, to hell with all that – run away at light speed! (Or close enough)
This is partially procrastination from a cover letter I’m trying to write, but honestly? It’s been something I’ve been thinking about for a while.
“It’s… flip. It’s… glib. It’s journalism.”
Not too recently, I went out to London and made a film with one of my friends. Cue obligatory ‘what did you do on your weekend?’ aggressively implying that your weekend plans are inferior… and stuff.
Lately I’ve noticed a lot of what I do recreationally is pretty deeply rooted in nostalgia for my past, and I’m finding that rather interesting.
The other day, I was headed for the Wilson Hospital to be assessed for ADHD.
Everyone practises their craft differently. Everyone has a different opinion on what’s best when teaching others. Writing is no different. With me, I’d generally find a prompt, using what I wrote to bring a full story to fruition. I’m not sure that’s a great idea for practice stuff anymore.
My new bed appears to have sucked away my ability to wake up to my alarm and I don’t liiiike iiiit.
In a world of synonyms, every word looks the same (I’m looking at you, English). I actually quite like looking for the subtle differences. For instance, a maze is somewhere you try to find the centre – a labyrinth is somewhere you try to escape.
It’s weird, a lot of the writing I’m doing currently is less actual writing and more going over stuff I’ve already written and trying to improve it. Excluding the stuff I’m doing for this visual novel I’m writing for anyway – that’s actually coming along pretty nicely. I didn’t expect the recent burst of inspiration, there.
