Grasping at Straws

I wish I had something clever and thoughtful to share today, but I am really grasping at straws here. I feel like I’m just kind of waiting for this month to finish so I can move on to more exciting things, you know? And at the same time I don’t want to build up my expectations in the event that some stuff doesn’t go according to plan.

In other news, I’ve been rediscovering my love for Missy Elliott this week, complete with full out dance sessions during the afternoons. Dancing isn’t my strong suit by any means, by the way. All of my dance moves are very silly.

Tomorrow I ought to do some creative writing. It’s been a good while since I last put up a short story so maybe it’s time I sit down and see if I can brainstorm something I can write and post as a series every week or so? I like being able to delve into characters’ backstories and get super invested into the plot, and although short stories are a quick way to get the creative juices flowing I just don’t think they’re as fulfilling for me to write.

Also if I choose to write this story and then decide I’m tired of it after a few weeks I can ditch it and move on to something else! I mean, hopefully that doesn’t happen because I think that could be very frustrating for me to look back at later and see all of these unfinished stories, but ultimately the purpose would be for me to improve my writing skills over time.

Anyway, that’s all I’ve got for today. See you tomorrow, where — hopefully — I’ll have a new story!
