Writer’s Block

writer's block

Well thankfully I don’t have Sophia’s problem but, I do have writer’s block. And yes, it sucks. The search for ideas has been unfruitful for days now. And I don’t even need a big idea just couple of small ones worth like five pages. But my brain is like…

Sorry bro we got nothing.

I had a minor case of writer’s block a couple of weeks ago, but I fixed that by giving my character writer’s block; which gave birth to four page scene. Unfortunately I can’t do that again so….

I’m just doing some reading, a little editing, and attempting to jump start my brain into doing some brainstorming. In the words of Samantha York, “I have ideas…I just haven’t thought of them yet.” **FYI, she is the female lead in my screenplay “Brooklyn”.**

In other news, the Avengers: Infinity War trailer came out today!! And it is so awesome! The movie looks epic and Bucky is in the trailer! Twice!!

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to switch over to my screenplay so I can sit in front of my computer like this…

…and try to conjurer up brilliance.

Until next time,

Questions, Questions

Well it’s still summer and I still have children in my house all day distracting me with their questions, comments, and wanting to watch Mystery Science Theater 3000; which I’ll admit is pretty awesome. But given the lack of quiet time, I figured I would check out the questions lists that I have found on Pinterest, answer a few and maybe take a little humor for a spin. **I will allow you, the reader, to determine whether said spin was successful.** Well, here we go.

1. What is the hardest thing you’ve had to deal with? Sweet potatoes. The pealing, the chopping, ugh, they are like, the hardest vegetable…for real.

2. What incredibly strong opinion/belief do you have that is completely unimportant in the grand scheme of things? That MnM’s should be eaten color order, and that order is: yellow, orange, red, green, blue, and finally brown. And don’t cross me, rules are rules.

3. What makes you different from most people? The change that I made to this picture.

4. How comfortable are you speaking in front of a large group of people? How comfortable would you be sleeping on a bed of rusty nails?

5. What is the funniest joke you know be heart? Okay so, 2 muffins were sitting in an oven. One muffin says to the other muffin, “My goodness its hot in here!” And the other muffin says, “Oh my goodness a talking muffin!” Haha and lol!

6. Would you go skydiving?

9. What comes to your mind when I say, “cabbage”? Uh….Poland?

10. What is the opposite of a koala?

11. Where’s the line between soup and cereal? What the hell? Who wrote this list?! Time to look at a different list.

12. What makes your eyes roll every time you hear/see it? The gals who seem to think that Sebastian Stan is somehow ruining their life. I mean really….

sebastianugh

Y’all unless he emptied your bank account, and/or set your house on fire, and/or stole your cat, and/or broke your hot water heater; I really don’t see how he could possibly ruin your life.

13. What word is a lot of fun to say?

tabasco

14. What are you most likely to become famous for? Turning frowns into smiles.

15. What are 5 facts about you?

*I go by my middle name.

*I’ve never had a broken bone.

*I hate the new car smell.

*Sophia is my favorite “Golden Girl”

*My thumb on my left hand is double jointed.

*****************************************************

Okay so maybe that was a little more than few. Feel free to answer any or all of these yourself, it would be fun to hear or…rather read your answers! As always thank you reading! And a very special thank you to my now 30 followers! Y’all are awesome!!

Until next time,

I Had a Dream

Y’all I am elbow deep in bachelors degree this week, so I do hope that you will pardon the brevity of this post. But first, a quick update on how my schooling is going. My topic for my capstone paper has been officially approved, and I will be focusing on the English side of things during the events of 1066; particularly Harold Godwinson and the Battle of Stanford Battle. I look forward to writing the paper but also look forward to being finished with said paper, June 25th could not come fast enough y’all.

I was thinking of something that I could write about that would be quick but also amusing, and decided to tell y’all about this dream I had a couple of weeks ago. It involves the People’s Choice Awards, Sebastian Stan, and some brillo pads, it was pretty crazy. Well maybe not crazy, interesting?, thought provoking?, weird?….hmmm…amusing, yeah, we’ll just stick with amusing. Anywho…with out further delay…

So I was at the People’s Choice Awards and I was wearing this dress, I had seen it on an advertisement on Pinterest that day. Then in the morning after I told my husband about the dream, I saw the dress on Pinterest again, and was like, “This is it! This is the dress!” And he was like, “Huh.” So I decided to save the picture.

I had just mustered up the courage to introduce myself to this guy, which was no small feat I assure you.

Then I look down and notice that my legs are not only unshaven, they basically looked like someone had glued a bunch of these to them.

Weird..okay yeah, maybe it was a little weird. I don’t remember anything after that, the shock of having brillo pad legs may have woken me up. By the way, I usually don’t remember my dreams, so recalling this many details is unusual. I wonder what it means…
