Increasingly Verbose – Journal 4/10/17

Man, that last entry was really weird, wasn’t it? Lot of cursing and unnecessary stuff, but I was EXCITED!

Not an awful lot has been happening here besides not being able to post much. Professional and personal life can get in the way of posting since I’m not a massive corporation! Like I’m human or something. But it does ache when I can’t hit my normally scheduled times or don’t even post a day. Some people might understand taking a day off every now and then, but that’s malarkey to me. I wanna be here and doing this.

Seeing as I was gone for a bit, I shall regail you with what I was up to!

I visited this abandoned logging place in a small town called Little Rock, Washington. Not a lot to see there, for the short time I was there, because the main attraction for me that day was being able to go back to Olympia.

To me, it’s like watching old movies and getting to see the memories of sets and all that stuff. Real blackwater shit. I walked through Capitol once again as I have many times, and that was really neat to be back with a powerful camera.

My story Natural is about why I have such good memories in that city, and being back to be able to capture some of the place again is always fun to me. I like the timelapse I have of times I took pictures of Capitol Lake. Lake Olympia. Not even sure what it’s called. I just know I like it quite a lot. I hope I used its correct name in the story…

Not posting, but I’ve never stopped writing. Working through my moleskine and I’ve actually picked up a story idea that I didn’t know was right in front of me. Creativity works like that a lot of the time, when you do and do and do and do and when you think about what you’ve done there’s often and even more interesting idea than all that stuff you just did. You know how I write poetry because I don’t have much attention for longer works? I think I accidentally thought of a longer work.

It’s based off my Deneb Mythos that I’m trying to trickle out when I finish a story here and a story there. But that hasn’t even gone anywhere in terms of interesting plot developments across the board, so this idea I have will have to wait to be published when the Deneb Mythos’ overall story is established and I only have flavor text to work on. So there’s something else to look forward to. It connects to my Somewhere Else, so I’ll leave ya with that for now.

In the meantime, poetry, poetry, poetry! Can’t get enough of all this damn poetry! And my trip to Olympia will of course yield some more photography I’ll be able to put up here, too! I think it’s really important to tend to this little walled garden of mine.

In that respect, I want to start posting more of those short stories! Like those of Deneb! There’s already two up and you SHOULD TOTALLY GO READ THEM IN THE STORIES SECTION.

So I’m being workshopped in Advanced Writing tomorrow, and I put up that packet of poems of mine. Okay, so publishing packets like that of related poems is something that’s really interesting to me. Like, on amazon for a dollar a packet, but it’d be packets of poems with similar themes. I know I could do an “Olympia Nights” themed packet. It’d include art and all kinds of extras. Like an anthology, I guess, or an album!

Poetry albums! I could easily do a world war one one, too. I don’t know how lucrative the idea is, but damn it does sound cool.

I might work on that when I get the time, but for now there’s some life getting in the way. Which is okay, because it just means I’ll have made more art and will have so much to share when I get back!

Thank you again to those of you who are here, subscribed, actively reading my stuff and taking an interest. Everybody here is welcome to read, and I appreciate all of you who do so.

By the way, this is the first time I’ve put my face on this place! Here it is! Hope it’s what all of you imagined.

Anyways, continuing with regularly scheduled programming…
