Wagner’s Einsug der Gotte is playing as I sit down to take a minute and just some time to flow through the blehs.
Blehs are when you are in a blah mood and nothing encourages you to get out of it, so you’re also just meh. Thus – bleh.
Today is very gloomy outside. Somewhere is getting rain I am pretty sure with the way the sky looks. The pressure has adjusted, but not in a positive way for me. This is the first serious pain day I’ve had since being home. I am truly blessed. Now I will see just how well my planned regimen really works. As long as I can stay on top of it everything will be fine.
FK – YA novel – is standing still. It is only because the pain encouraging the blehs doesn’t encourage some creative activities like writing. I am also reconsidering the scenario that last went down and I am not at all certain it…works. It might work in a different place. So, I am taking advice, the same advice, by the way, from The Husband and Cheyenne and just cutting and pasting the scenario I am so uncertain about into a different word document and just step back and see what comes next.
The bullet journal I am using for FK is now invaluable! Since the last few scenes of the story keep coming back to haunt me, I’ve been writing down questions, high lighting them, and when I know the answer, going back and filling it in. I can also put a notation of it in the bullet journal index as to where the information is if I think it warrants that much importance. So far, only three of the questions I’ve asked have been plot changers. A couple of them I did not want to make, but the story works better if some things don’t happen in specific chapters or areas of the story as I originally had them.
Each time I work seriously on a piece, it seems it teaches me something important about the craft of telling a good story. There is always something new to discover about the art of it all. And, this does not mean I am calling myself an “artist” because an artist brings about true beauty and teaches us something about the appreciation of life and living. I am a story teller. It is enough.
