Good Weekend Once Again, Good People! And how fares thee all?
There's nothing like the panic and anxiety from something completely unexpected to repair the parts in the machine that had been broken, huh?
Project O' Doom II has been stalled out and was really looking like it needed to be toe-tagged but something I'd done about a month ago on a whim and as an exercise came back to me this week which demanded my full attention. Talk about stuff blowing up in your face... and not even necessarily in a bad way.
Anyway, I took the day off of work yesterday and hammered out about 10,000 words on POD II. I needed to produce about 50 pages plus a full synopsis yesterday and somehow, I managed to do it. And the better thing about it is that I actually liked
all of the pages that came pouring out of my head. It's rough and needs some polishing, sure. But I don't think that what I produced yesterday is entirely sucktastic. Though, I've never written a synopsis before so that I'm not too sure about. I am pretty sure that bit blows so I've spent a lot of this morning trying to polish the hell out of it. I don't know how much good it did though.
Unexpected opportunities apparently have a way of focusing the brain and a stress-filled panic can compel you to write like the freaking wind and can unclog the mental machine all in one fell swoop. Amazing. Who knew?
So yeah... my week has been a bit... strange. Good but strange. You just never know when a door of opportunity is going to fly open. I suppose the trick is to not let it fly open and smack you in the nose. Which... this one kind of did but I'm hoping it doesn't leave any permanent marks.
So how about you, my friends? How was YOUR week? Anything unexpected crop up? Or was it pretty much status-quo around your parts? Has it been a good week? A bad week? An in-the-middle kind of week? What's new and exciting in your world? What's old and predictable? What have been the highlights and the lowlights from the week that was, my friends? What is the haps in your worlds?
Once again, this is your sandbox so jump on in with both feet. Need to get something off your chest? Need to vent, scream, cry and wail? Need to thump your chest and give a primal scream? Need to get up on a soapbox and rant to the heavens? Need some words of encouragement or a big hug? Anything and everything is welcome here, as you know.
The spotlight is yours, my friends. Step on up and grab the mic.
As always, the Purge Bucket is open for your convenience... spew forth my friends.
