Scribblings of a Mad Writer

Undercover Blues

Who besides me has a dumb fondness for the movie Undercover Blues? I always imagine that this would be a typical vacation for River and the Doctor…especially if they took Stormageddon on holiday with them.

Omg!

I absolutely love Undercover Blues and I can totally see that.

“It also seems that the unhappy writers are the enduring writer. Hampered or limited by their suffering, literature becomes their focus and salvation, forcing them to give their best every moment of creation. Writing becomes their medicine, their way of escape, the catalyst for their imagination.”

Honestly, I do work out a number of things in my writing. I think in all honesty all writers do.

“I am not sure that I exist, actually. I am all the writers that I have read, all the people that I have met, all the women that I have loved; all the cities I have visited.”

This, totally this. Just one of the reasons I love Borges.

Same here. It is so close and you just want to scream. Yeah, I’m right there with you.

You would be surprised with how many people in your life could be going through depression at this very moment.  People hide it like a paper bag over their heads out of fear of being judged, made fun of, seen as weak, or just not taken seriously.  Depression should not be taken lightly, it holds us down from our purpose and potential in life.  Those who tell you that it doesn’t exist have never experienced depression in their life, therefore not understanding the symptoms and how it’s something that cannot be fixed in a day!  So if you think you are depressed or if you think you know someone else who is, please talk to a friend, a family member, or anyone else in your life that you trust - never overlook the possibility of seeing a doctor for more professional help!!  Your feelings are real, your feelings are shared upon millions.  Don’t hide it, talk to someone about it.  With the right help, you can rediscover your confidence and begin life anew with our undying love and support!

We are right here!!

Often, people hide it because they don’t believe they deserve help or love. So don’t wait for the invitation. Let the people you love know it whether you think they might be depressed or not.

Yeah, depression is powerful and makes you just want to hold things in and take it because you don’t want to burden other problem with your “issues”. And that does include therapists and other people trying to help. It takes a lot of courage to admit that you have a mental illness, the worst of which is admitting it to yourself. Fighting against something that feels as implacable as the sea is a brave thing.

So for everyone else who is dealing with depression… Fight On! There are others out there dealing with the same thing. You are not alone and there is support.

I LIKE IT

I WOULD BUY LIKE A THOUSAND TICKETS FOR THIS

The funniest thing about this is only one of the actors gets drunk and its a different person each night so it isn’t just everyone struggling its everyone else doing their shit and one person fucking it all up it’s BRILLIANT.

I support this level of fun. This would be awesome.

Yes! I finally have the Citadel DLC for Mass Effect 3. That should keep me busy.

I miss Germany. I had so much fun there, as a kid and as a young adult. There was just so much about that country that I adored. If there was any one place I would want to go back to it would be there.

I thank all that is Divine for the distractions keeping me from flipping out over the Interlude Press submission. If it weren’t for all those things I would be even twitchier than I am. Here’s hoping that myself and Poppy get picked up for this.

And everyone else who entered… good luck as well. Too bad they can’t just publish das Uberbook.

THIS WILL BE SUCH A LONG MARATHON AND I AM SO READY

That’s prob about 12 hours

extended lotr alone is 11 hours and 22 minutes.

LOTR Extended = 681 minutesHobbit 1 Extended = 182 minutesHobbit 2 Extended = approx. 186 minutesLet’s say Hobbit 3 Extended is at least 185 minutes
The full marathon run time will be around 1234 minutes, or 20 hours 30 minutes.

#perfect that leaves 3 and a half hours for snack runs and pee breaks

I already have this planned, just saying.

I don’t smoke, but otherwise.

I totally am a Hobbit, with the wide hairy feet and everything. I am okay with that.

I don’t write about my weight loss very much because it is a personal thing. I am just excited that I have lost 25 pounds since May and that I have lost 72 pounds since March 2012. This is a big deal for me, since I need to reach a certain BMI for surgery. 

Just to be clear, I am losing weight to reach an arbitrary number set on a faulty system by a surgeon whose services I am obtaining. Also, I wasn’t happy at the weight I was at and so I took steps to change that. There is nothing wrong with being large, so long as you are healthy. I wasn’t healthy so that had to change. Healthy is the key.

So, I am excited as I just broke back into the 100s for the first time in over 9 years. I am in far better shape thanks to all the swimming I do. I feel fantastic. The swimming makes me feel so good, you just don’t know. There is no doubt that the exercise is what has made that difference. Just saying.

So take care everyone, stay healthy, and love yourself. 

I left after she fell asleep because the pain of parting was less without her bright eyes watching me while I gathered my things and closed the door softly. Standing on the stoop I pulled on my boots, tightening the laces in their false sense of security. I closed my eyes and sighed, wishing I had been brave enough to face those eyes, to taste her kiss one last time before I headed off. Tears were all I was able to carry away from that. It was a heavy burden.

Hefting my bag I walked off, fighting against the urge to look back, to her. If I did I was sure I would be unable to continue on. Why did things have to come to this, me spiriting away in the dark of night, her sleeping, unaware of what has past? I don’t know but I hate it all the same.

I have heard some call it romantically wanderlust, that urge to see the sunset over a new horizon. It’s the same sun on the same horizon every time but that never seems to matter. To me it is more an addiction to movement, to variety, to different tastes, sounds, the touch of the wind, to never being held down. Love is a chain that holds us tight. For that reason I left in the night, not because love isn’t enough but because the junkie’s siren call grew deafening, the pull of vanishing miles wet on my tongue.

There is a sensual appeal to walking, the movement of the legs, the comforting weight on my feet that driving or riding hides. Miles become a casual lie without the press on the sole. There is no doubt they can take you farther faster but until foot touches pavement it seems oddly virtual, like one big game separating reality from truth. And so, now I walked.

***

I don’t know where this is coming from but I like it. I wanted to share as I continue wandering through this. I have to know where this goes.

“I can close my eyes (to my story), yet some of you have provided ears without which no tale can survive a single day are likely not so willing. You are the grim, goal-oriented ones who will not believe that the joy is in the journey rather than the destination no matter how many times it has been proven to you. You are the unfortunate ones who still get the lovemaking confused with the paltry squirt that comes to the end the lovemaking (the orgasm is, after all, God’s way of telling us we’ve finished, at least for the time being, and should go to sleep).
I hope you come to hear the tale, and not just munch your way through die pages to the ending. For an ending, you only have to turn to the last page and see what is there writ upon. But endings are heartless. An ending is a closed door no man can open. I’ve written many for the same reason I pull on my pants in the morning before leaving the bedroom - because it is the custom of the country.
Should you go on you will surely be disappointed, perhaps even heartbroken. I have one key left on my belt, but all it opens is that final door, what&’s behind it won’t improve your love-life, grow hair on your bald spot, or add five years to your natural span (not even five minutes). There is NO such thing as a happy ending. I never met a single one to equal “Once upon a time”.
Endings are heartless.
Ending is just another word for goodbye.”

Stephen King (Dark Tower Book 7: Author’s Note before revealing the ending following the climax of the story)

For all I dislike a lot of his stuff, King’s Dark Tower series is amazing and has such brilliant writing. This brought me to tears when I read it the first time. Wonderful stuff.
