Yup, I’m done with camp:
Last week, when I was approaching the 10,000 word goal I had set myself, I decided to up it to 15,000 as I was nowhere near done generating everything I wanted to generate. In hindsight, I shouldn’t have done that. I should have forced myself to just be more concise and cut things off at 10,000 instead of then having to force myself to write 5,000 extra words of which I will probably only get to use a 1,000 or so. It’s just not a very efficient way of working. For those noticing the word “forcing”: it is a sad fact that (at this point in my life) I have to pretty much force myself to do anything, creative or otherwise. It gets things done, but it’s not a very fun or satisfying way of working.
I have been in a huge funk in general these days, mostly frustrated and bored with my entire existence, both online and off. This is usually a sign that I’ve been spending too much time at home and too much time Thinking, so my plan is going to be to leave the house a bit more in the coming weeks, see some art, meet some peeps, pet some cats.
