Little Time

It's the 5th August already?!
Argh!!  Life just seems to be clapping along, and I'm not doing anything except thinking before I make my next move.  Strategy is a chore.

So anyway, as you can see in my previous post, the next competition I'm going to enter is a poetry competition.  I think after this one I won't enter any more poetry for a long time, because it is a complex process that I'm not sure I ever entirely understood.

So, I'm staring blankly at my screen and the words aren't coming for this poem.  I sit on my windowsill instead, and consider the idea of a character who is confined to her home and cannot leave, even if she wanted to...

That sounds like the basis of my next short story entry which is due in September.  As long as I avoid cliches like sexual abuse or phobias I reckon it could be fairly poignant.

Life is fairly boring although I'm definitely feeling more creative now.  I seem to be shedding friends like skin, but sometimes you have to burn bridges and move on with your life.  We don't always understand that some relationships are only moments in life, and no moment lasts forever.

I desperately need work, both temporary and permanent, but so far, haven't found anything and no luck.  This makeover is going to be very last minute, I cannot start September looking a hot mess.  No.  No, no, no.  

Anyway, I shall continue my uphill struggle.  I'm trying to work out how to design my blog, and haven't really done any of these web designs in so long, don't know if I remember exactly how to do it.  Back in my day, myspace was where it was at.  *rolls eyes*  I'm also going to get out my keyboard today, make some cookies, and try to write.  

Try to write.
