    An Escalating Problem

    Things have gotten complicated now.

    I was pulled into a meeting with HR at my work regarding what happened a week ago. In this meeting so many things were said and implied that I now have to deal with their bullshit.

    Things that were said in that meeting.

    I Wa(o)nder

    It's so hard to write when my time is eaten up by work; sometimes a little gets done, but far more often I am so bagged when I get home that even self care can feel like a chore. Service work is the worst, it is both physically taxing and emotional exhausting, it leaves one drained of inspiration.

    Self and Character Growth

    A story requires more than simply stuff happening to a character, there needs to be growth.

Learning about story creation · 4:42pm Nov 29th, 2018

So I have been writing a lot, but have discovered something. Much like Hubble's law my written universe keeps expanding, and everything is moving away from everything else. I see the pitfall, a continuously growing story with no interacting parts. I have many scenes I was inspired to write, they are all part of the same story, but they are on different points within a growing timeline that just keeps getting bigger.

A story is the connective tissue between the inspired points, and I have none of that. I just keep getting ideas about who my character becomes at a point in her timeline and write it. The danger is the story does not really finish because connecting the parts is kind of boring, and I am a filly who abhors boredom.

I sat down with acrylics and painted my character a couple of days ago, I was trying to get my mind to visualize and understand how she becomes. Maybe I am overthinking the whole thing. The process is more difficult than I anticipated.
