In this episode, we find out that Jon Snow knows something, Arya and Gendry aren’t as close as Arya had hoped, Margery and Joffrey aren’t the only ones getting married, and pickled babies are all the rage in the Baratheon family. Things are getting bleaker and bleaker in Westeros, but what else would you expect from Game of Thrones?
I haven’t written anything in at least a week. I’m afraid to look at what my daily word count is at now, because the anxiety in me thinks the number is going to be at like 200K words a day (I know that’s a ridiculous number, but the fear is real, so very real) and, although I type fast, I can’t do that. Especially without any plot behind it. Y’know?
BUT! On the bright side, I do have ideas. So many ideas. My active imagination means I am constantly thinking about cool (read: weird) shit and how that cool (read: weird) shit has an effect on normal (read: weird) people.
The seasons gets more and more intense as the episodes fly by! What will Daenerys do with her new army and what price did she pay to get them? How will Jamie survive without a hand? Now that Theon has escaped will he be able to keep out of trouble? Come listen as our ideas change on who will win this deadly game with our special guest host, Kennedy M!
Things are getting really intense and it’s ONLY EPISODE THREE! Everyone is captured, and those who aren’t captured are miserable, the only two people who seem to be in a good space are Podric and HotPie. Who will survive if all men must die?
I’m having writer’s block. I’m still ahead of my count with writing, but I’m disliking the way that I write. Hopefully I’ll be able to write some more tomorrow. We’ll see. I think maybe tomorrow I’ll find something to do to stimulate my brain and convince me to write more. Whether it be exercise, reading or something like that. That usually helps.
I know, I keep saying every year that I’m going to write more. Every year I start a NaNoWriMo, ever year I think I have this idea that I think will actually finish itself before my brain seizes up and decides it doesn’t want to write anything anymore. Every year I promise myself to focus more on my writing, if not for anyone else but me, so I can get better at a hobby that find any excuse to neglect. This year may be no different than the others, but I’m gonna put forth the effort anyway, because it feels as if not doing anything is a step down from trying and failing. So I press on.
I have plenty of ideas. My imagination runs wild during times when I’m eitehr extremely bored, or procrastinating on something else that I really should be doing but during those wild imaginative times, I’m never around a computer I can type with, or paper I can write with. I constantly have my phone and my Nexus 7, but writing anything long on those takes too much time for me. Also I’m already prone to spelling and grammar mistakes without AutoCorrect being a dick to me, but I shouldn’t let that be an excuse. I can still talk, and there are numerous ways I can record my thoughts on my phone and listen to them later to help me start writing. Between Google Keep, Evernote, Drop Box, Cubby and Drive I have no excuse.
So I’ve started writing something. At least I started writing something 3 months ago and never finished because of all of the usual reasons, but now that I’ve resolved myself to do something, I think the last few monnth’s idle dreaming about what could and should happen in the story should find it’s way to paper. Or internet. Whichever.
So here is my widgets, withmy words so far and my goal. Let’s see how I do.
