It actually began on Thursday. I decided I had had enough of not writing so I wrote a quick flash fiction that had been kicking around in my head for a while. Does it count as flash fiction if you wait to write it? Well anyway I finally started writing again. I posted it here on Saturday, and it's going up on my writing blog in a few weeks. This opened up the floodgates...so to speak. See I've been feeling pretty depressed lately, like nothing I will ever do will be good enough. This Kickstarter stuff has really caused it all to be even more honest. Every time I do a video it's never good enough. Well anyway I decided to write out my feelings and wrote another short story. Sadly it's actually never going to be published because it was fanfiction. But it was the kind of story that might be able to be turned in to not-fanfiction. It was actually really well received too and I've not had one negative comment. It even got a streak of fifty upvotes before someone finally downvoted it. That felt pretty good.
Speaking of fanfiction me and a guy who's on the same fanfiction site as me got to talking about accents. He has literally smoked his away but he was interested in mine because we were both British and there are actually like 19 different accents here. I said I would read one of his stories but I'm no good at character voices. I noticed he had written a poem though so I offered to read that for him. I've read poetry on here and it went quite well. The downside? It's a poem of two characters interacting. At first I decided to use Audacity to change the pitch of my voice until I realised I was going to make them in to videos, and could just use pictures to show who is speaking. In the end I had to undo all my editing, re edit the sound files, and then attach them to videos. I spent most of Friday and Saturday doing that.
To top off my weekend I spent nearly all of Sunday at work. I had to be in at ten instead of one because my boss was running the place on his own. I didn't sleep much either so I was already out of it when I went to work. When I was there my boss asked me, on behalf of a recently out bisexual male employee, if I was interested in fooling around. Once I got over being uncomfortable I began to see it as a bit of a compliment but I wasn't interested. I'm only interested in serious relationships, and I'm not after one right now. I am genuinely comfortably single right now.
So, yeah, that's why I'm utterly exhausted. But apparently not so exhausted that I can't write a stupidly long post. Oh to top it off I may have told my boss I'll go to the gym with him. If I can feel it's worth it. He's going to see if they run a free trial offer. WHY DO I DO THESE THINGS?!
Oh Celestia help me.
|Yeah I don't think she's likely to help me.|
