Doing A Lot Of Writing

Song: “Ocean Man” by Ween

Mood: 7.5

Nightmares: 2

Today has been a pretty good day. I had trouble getting to sleep again and had some nightmares but I woke up feeling pretty decent. I had no idea what I was going to do but had a couple of ideas rolling around in my head.

I put on some music and sat down to do some writing. Things went so well that I spent most of the day in front of the keyboard (which isn’t necessarily a good thing I suppose) and had a good time. It feels good to put pen to paper, so to speak.

My mom called this morning and we discussed some Christmas stuff – gifts and things like that. We’re all cutting back this year, which I think is a good thing. I suppose I’ve matured a bit because I just want everyone to be healthy and happy instead of opening a whole bunch of gifts.

It’s hard to believe how quickly this year has gone by. It seems like it’s just been a week or two since the last holiday season. My parents were right – the older you get, the faster time goes.

J is away at a committee meeting this evening. I had supper by myself and then did some laundry. I’m way behind (again) and it’s building up so I need to get my act together and attack the pile.

I’m looking forward to doing more writing this evening and maybe even tomorrow. I’m not particularly good at it but I enjoy it. I took an English literature course a few years ago and the professor was excellent. Somehow, she made reading hundred-plus year old books and writing essays on them very enjoyable. Since then I’ve really enjoyed jotting down ideas or writing short or long stories as they come to me. It’s relaxing, but only if I’m in the right mood. On days where I can’t concentrate it can be quite frustrating.

Stay safe.
