Thoughtful moment: What do you write about when you’ve got nothing? Crossed out sentences, deleted lines, if this had to be put down on paper, there’d be tears, smudge marks, and random, small holes from erasing and re-writing too many times. I think I need to get out of the house, away from all the mundane stuff and drama in my household, and see something different. I need to do something “different”, just to get the muse a shot in the arm.
I’ve got one week left on this experiment, and I’m about tapped out for thoughtfulness. (Does that mean my brain’s fried? Well, I knew that a long time ago)
I need to get outside my comfort zone again, I think, and do something that will shake me a little. Rattle the ole brain-box, and make me look at things with fresh eyes.
Aw, crap. One of the women in my office wants me to go do karaoke again this week….. that’s probably my best bet for shaking me up, considering my stage-fright. Well, guess who’ll most likely be appearing soon on a karaoke stage nearby?
I get stuck in such a rut sometimes, I get used to a certain routine, work, home, sleep… and around again. I do get time to spend with the guy I’m dating, and that’s a great break-away from routine. He pulls me outside my comfort zone; he shows me that the rut is a rather boring place to be, and you don’t have to be in it all the time.
But the thoughtfulness stuff he makes me think about… is NSFW or K.
So I’ll stick with the mundane, the “normal” stuff.
