The Only Way!

Posted: 22 September, 2016 in Comment, Life, writing

At the moment the only way I can write here in my journal is from the heart and when the inspiration takes me.

Though it does mean currently my journal entries can be rough and bit rambling but at least they are my thoughts and feelings.

Lonely is the Pen!

Posted: 30 August, 2016 in Comment, Life, writing

Sometimes I find the whole process of writing a very lonely thing indeed to a point I really do not want to do it as it makes me feel that down.

But I know that is the nature of writing be it either when I am writing my journal here or writing for a role-playing game as you have to be alone in front of piece of paper or laptop to actually write effectively. I need to be focused when I write so I can effectively write something down.

There is one thing which does keep me writing I the fact the stuff I write for role-playing games I get to actually see the joy and pleasure it gives other people when I actually run the role-playing games. This is a wonderful rush and inspiration to write more. It makes all my efforts worth while.

So in the end I will have to get used to feeling alone when I write as the end result can give others so much pleasure.

A Strange Idea Thrown At Me!

Posted: 25 June, 2016 in Comment, Life, writing

Recently a number of friends on the various social web sites have comment that I should write a novel or generally take my writing more seriously. Something I never thought of doing mostly because I never had the confidence to write anything even here on my journal.

Add to this I have come from a more scientific academic background and worked with computers most of my life which far from encourages creative writing but a very analytical way of creating things.

But some people out there actually have more faith in me than I do in myself and suggested that I should write more seriously, one even suggested I write a novel. It is very gratifying that someone has that much faith in my creative side.

Though I do have one thing on my side in so much I have started to running Role-Playing Games again very successfully in so much the players have enjoyed the games I have created to a point they are looking forward to the next sessions of the games to see what is going to happen next.

Basically it seams I have a knack of creating and weaving a Role-Playing plots which can hold the interest of the players which is something I would need to do if I were to start to write more seriously.

It is getting to a point that I should think more seriously about writing taking full advantage of the storytelling experience when creating and running Role-Playing games.

I certainly should start small and continue writing the snippets of stories which appear in my other blog to get the confidence writing plus get some more running Role-Playing games under my belt before I move on.

It might help also that I find courses on creative writing which suit the way I do things and give me firmer basis how to write which was never given me when I was in school when it was really needed.

Finally I have to start reading a lot again to give my imagination enough exercise again after the last few years of being in the desert as far as being creative.

So it is time for me to start to seriously thinking about this as I have said some of my friends think I could actually do it!

A Days Writing!

Posted: 2 January, 2016 in Comment, Life, writing

At one time including myself thought a day sitting writing, even my nonsense, was or is a waste of my time which could be put to better use.

But in the end it is not a waste of my time but a massive help to my mental illness called depression and good exercise for my imagination and intelligence. It gives me one more purpose to my life which lacks a real purpose at the moment.

Currently a wasted day in my view is sitting in front of a computer screen lazily surfing the social networks looking for something that is not there or playing games which simply do not inspire my imagination or creativity and just past time in a pointless pursuit.

So in the end a days writing for me is a positive experience which rather wastes my days opens my mind to its creativity and my eyes to the infinite possibilities of imagination.

In the end it is not a waste of time or effort!

Writing From The Heart!

Posted: 29 May, 2015 in Comment, Life, writing

I always write from the heart and when inspiration strikes me which always makes what I say in my journals very personal though it does also mean that my writing tends to be very rough and ready. It also means sometimes I tend to ramble and go in circles.

It is sometimes gets a little frustrating my end as I would like to be far more polished not helped by confidence issue caused by my years at school during which I was told both by my teachers and peers that I had no talent if anything stupid.

This has always effected me until recently when I started to write my journal and found that I am not really that bad at writing though very rough and ready. At some point I should do something to improve the way I write and express myself to write but as always it is difficult to motivate myself.

So until that time I will keep writing my journals which still helps with myself coping with my depression and I am actually starting to enjoy writing the journals themselves. Plus it all helps in so much the journal gives me practice writing and finding my own style.

So for the meanwhile I will continue to write from my heart.
