This is the first new post in a few days or is that a few nights because between one thing and another and one thing always does seem to go between two other things doesn't it? But yes between one thing and another I've found myself for the past several days too drowsy and muddle-headed during the peak or is that peek no actually I'm pretty convinced that it's peak blogging hours too tired and uninspired at that time to do any actual blogging so I made the choice to just get a relatively early bedtime in order to get up on time for work which worked out if you'll pardon the expression which regardless of pardoning or choosing not to forgive it's there now and there's nothing anyone can do about it so we might as well move on but anyway the choice to say screw it and go to bed instead did at least ensure that I'd get to work on time substantially early on at least one day and that's good not that I'm usually late but well work is like a never-ending suspense movie in that sense.
One thing I've discovered recently is the value of energetic half-assed writing. Something like you see above, say, with run-on sentences and maybe a repetition here and there and also here (ha). It makes writing sessions more fun and at least for me can make them more productive too. If I try to go in a regular A then B then C route odds are I'll run out of steam no matter what kind of setup I give myself. If I make a mess, like the artist who sketches in big strokes with the arm always straight, that means freedom. It means that a 1000 word per night output goes from being barely conceivable to fairly trivial, although most of this initial burst won't be usable as is. More than that, though, it means that in the middle of one of those broken sentences or poorly-planned paragraphs I might find some new direction to go in, more interesting than what I'd thought of at first.
Anyway, my process continues to evolve and this has grown to be part of it.
The non-blogging over the past several days is true, of course. That's part of the reason for no FR10 today. Probably another Saturday Random 10 tomorrow.
