Second Post

This is probably going to be short since my stomach's not feeling well.  Queasy, queasy.

So writing.  I said it'd be writing centric didn't I?  So what am I writing?  A blog post obviously.  But that's not what I mean when I say writing.  Stories, novels, limericks?  Not actually working on any.  I've been in a bit of slump.  I tried doing National Novel Writing Month back in November, though.  I got 6000 words.  And now I can't remember what it was about.  It wasn't about Gumdrop the gingerbread man, that was the previous years attempt.  Didn't even get to 3000 words that time.  What the hell did I write about? 

 Looked it up.  It was a story that had been bouncing around in my head for years.  It's about a gnome named Tweezers and the thing he finds.  It's an egg, which, once it hatches draws Tweezers into a war he'd rather stay out of.  I got as far as the egg hatching, which is quite a bit further then the first time I attempted writing it.  It started out as an idea for an Eragon parody.  It just wasn't humorous enough for me to get into.  Boring actually.

I haven't really written much on anything since then.  Some freewriting has been done but no stories have come out of it.  It makes me sad.  I used to have more ideas then I could write about.

I"m thinking for this blog I might do something like a Writing Prompt Wednesday, where I take a writing prompt I find and write a story.  I shall do that this Wednesday and see how it goes.

First Blog

Hi there, Garnet R. Kimzey here and this is my blog.  Now whether or not I get readers doesn't matter too much but it would nice.  This is my writing blog where I can write about writing or ideas or just write.  Mostly I'm trying to get back into the habit of writing everyday so I won't always be blogging about writing because sometimes there's something else on my mind.

About me?  Well, I'm using a pseudonym so anything I say about myself may or may not be true.  I won't ever say which.  Today the "R" in my name stands for Rutabaga.  I have a cat who is the cutest and deadliest creature I've ever let sleep on my bed.  I have a growing yarn stash which is taking over my bedroom but that's fine with me, as long as the cat doesn't eat it.  She likes to eat yarn which is not good for her or my stash.  I like watching education shows and cartoons.  I especially like cartoons that are educational, like Histeria.  I am kumquats.  I don't know what the previous statement means which is probably why I like it.

As for what I like to write, besides everything and anything, is stories, usually of the humor or fantasy variety.  I plan one day actually writing that novel and getting published.  Right now I'd settle for getting a short story published just so I can open that bottle on wine I have on my bookshelf.

I bought myself a Cadbury egg to reward myself for doing the dishes today (I shouldn't have let the kitchen get that messy) and I haven't eaten it yet.  It's filled with caramel.  Mmmmm, caramel.

Sometimes I get distracted by things, like chocolate.  Mmmm, chocolate.

I'm watching My Strange Addictions on TLC.  Currently they have girl on who's addicted to eating couch cushions.  Makes me feel better about my strange behaviors.  Actually, it makes me look down right normal.

There's something wrong with the "k" key on this keyboard.  I think something got stuck under it and you have to hit it really hard to get it to type.  One of these days I'll fix that.

I've rambled quite a bit haven't I.  I don't promise more organized posts in the future.  Tomorrow I may actually post something related to writing.  But I will be trying to post everyday and if I get any loyal readers I will expect them to hold me to that.  Nothing like an e-mail box full of angry letters to get one motivated to update their blog, right?
