In 2013: Part Un
I like structure, I do. Sure I don’t mind surprises here and there, but a structure gives me something to look forward to. That’s always a good thing. It keeps me hopeful, and when hope hums just under my skin, it keeps me sane and happy.
Considering this year’s been all sorts of shitty (especially the last quarter, which really took a toll on a bunch of my activities, and everything tumbled gracelessly like a domino — my writing included), I’ve decided to kick my life back into gear. There are things out of my control — I will digress for a bit and just take this moment to say: health problems and accidents can just go die a painful, horrible death now — but things like my writing shouldn’t be one of those. I haven’t been happy with it lately, and I think it’s something I can work on.
So I will.
Timing’s perfect, too, because I will be on holiday for two weeks with as little internet connection as possible. Melbourne was good for my muse last time. I hope the city will be just as gracious this time around. Hey, it’s Christmas, after all.
Back to my little blurb about structure!
Mel’s been in my head for more than a year now, and my girl is changing. Boy is she kicking up a fresh storm in my head at the moment. Too bad I am not doing that justice, but I do have a structure in mind to makes me all sorts of excited. Basically, doing this next year:
I adore these things and I have a slew of pages on my OneNote about Mel with these (I promise I am not obsessed with her :P), but as I said, the girl is developing, so the questions might yield different answers this time. How fun would it be to compare and contrast? However, I do know just how much taxing are they to fill out in one sitting. But a question a day shouldn’t be that bad, yes?
Like I said: structure.
I need 2013. Seriously.
