Just the relief, a quickie prompt

Standard

Last night I went through the writing prompt tag on tumblr just to see what I would find. There were a bunch of awesome prompts but one list stood out to me: Bookstore AU (apollofastingdionysusdrunk.tumblr.com)
I decided to work on the prompt that made me laugh the hardest (whether it’s because I pictured writing one of the cheesiest scenes, which is honestly so much fun, or not I have it written down at the top of my blank page.
“Holy shit this assistant is hot – yes, I’m looking for a science fiction, a Gothic horror, a spy mystery, a modern dystopian, historical fiction, and – and…”
Not sure where this will lead. I already have some ideas swirling in my mind.
This won’t be the first prompt I have decided to tackle in the last few weeks. Sometimes right now all it honestly feels like I only have enough energy to work on a short blurb.
But for me it’s a relief.
My brain doesn’t feel overwhelmed and for a short time I can focus on melding myself with paper. Even if I fall asleep while working.
If you want to take a crack at it, and don’t mind sharing, feel free to either comment or post it on your own blog (but please let me know, I would love to read it)!

Words? Words? Where are you?

Standard

So this summer I thought I would be able to sit down, chillax (seriously, chillax isn’t a word?), drink tea by the gallon and write up a storm. Apparently it has taken me till now to realize… It ain’t happening. Now you must be wondering why or maybe you have read my previous post about getting my AWESOME summer job.

Basically to sum it up in 150 characters or less: By time I get home I am so exhausted that I barely make it into the house without falling on my face, tripping on my cat, or just deciding to sleep right there on the floor in front of the door. (Total words: 41)

On top of working full time I am trying to finish a online/distance education course to make up for the one I failed during the semester. Thankfully most of the assignments are fairly easy and I am working through them steadily. Getting them handed in? That’s another story…

But today I got some writing done before work! I am so pleased with myself even though what I accomplished isĀ maybe 500 words or about half a page. Although I have not been able to work on it since, my lunch hour was spent discussing articles in the Metro, I have the paper right beside me if I have a sudden burst of inspiration. This morning when I was working my goal was to get a head start on a dual point of view scene between 2 of my main character at first then adding a 3rd and perhaps 4th later. It is a challenging scene but I am looking forward to getting it done!

Hey Hey! Thanks for all the follows, I just recieved notification that A Munchkin’s Word World has surpassed 50 followers! Thank you, I honestly never would have thought it would happen (especially since I keep forgetting to post; bad munchkin, bad).

Maybe I will have something to report more in a while but for now I need to get back to work.
