I promised myself two things: one is to keep working on the novel I started. The second is to upkeep my personal blog. The personal blog always gets the short end of the stick, and since I'm procrastinating a little, I might as well get a blog post in.
I must be fair. I did write a few hundred words this morning. I also started writing more while sitting out in the patio. It's been cool, breezy, and rainy outside. Since there was a chance that it would be bug-biting free for a short time, and I wanted a break from my laptop, I took to writing outside. I'm happy to collect myself, or refresh as the case may be, and get some things done.
I did manage to write three paragraphs for the novel, so it isn't me 100% slacking off. I'd like to get a couple more paragraphs written while I'm outside to at least call what I'm doing more of a success. So my procrastinating allowed me to fulfill a promise as well as keep writing. Not bad for the first part of the day.

My head's not in the creative game today. It's rather disconcerting. Was hoping for some magic today in regards to writing. I feel a bit lost. I need to do something constructive. I need to be constructive. Perhaps another one word at a time day. This is like a bad shadow that looms too much. I will endeavor to keep marching through the woes.

I must write something today on this blog, so let's go. Applied to more jobs yesterday, and it's been impressive the amount of assessment tests many applications have. Might as well go through them. It's just a phase to. Go through, like a bad game of time consumption for no other reason that someone said you should.
Today is nice, minus the pollen, which I hate. It coats everything and it's nasty. Of course, my allergies make things even more troubling. I hate that this has happened, but I gotta go through it all. Could be worse, I suppose. Pollen could be layered on the ground like snowfall. Then what the heck would any allergy sufferer do?

I'm supposed to write something on this here post. Today I'm having cabbage, rice, and beef stew. It tastes good, and I know cause I had it yesterday. It should be even better today. I need to go write more, which I haven't done well at all. This post has some plus and fail moments. I dun not how to smoothe it out yet. I say this as I sip my tea.

Nearly forgot to write something here. It's gonna be a one word at a time post. Today. Watching Robocop 2 like its brand new to me. Not so brand new if I'm blogging while watching. Maybe "comfort movie" is a better way to describe today's movie. Something blatantly satirical about this film that went over my head as a child, that I'm seeing now. A committee that wants a softer, kinder Robocop seems perverse and banal, yet it holds a little true. What an interesting moment in a film. That and it predicted the bankruptcy of Detroit, and the hubris of corporate America's involvement in the degradation of states.

One thing I do these days is remind myself negative thoughts are bad for my well-being, and counterproductive. They truly lower the enjoyment, and block creative juices, unless I find a way to channel negatives into a positive. I have yet to do that, and if it doesn't yield goodness and blessings, it has to be purged. So I banish negative thoughts from my mind. Don't need them to start my day. I'm praying for better quality of living and enjoyment of life.
