One Thousand Word Challenge 37: A few Things

I still have a while before I start work and I really want to write, but once more it is one of those mornings where I’m not sure as to what I want to write about, but then again that’s probably something I shouldn’t be worrying about. Instead of trying to work out what I want to write I should just write and get it done with and get into whatever comes next after the act of writing has been commenced and completed; After all, the whole point of these is to do more stream-of-conscious writing rather than something based around a particular subject thought of beforehand though there are plenty of those at this point. I can’t deny that, but still, I do want to write about something, though maybe it really is best to just let the brain take over and express something far more “of the moment” than something with an idea or plan in place.

Of course that doesn’t mean I couldn’t do something that covers both, but that’s not what I want to do, I think.

Well, I guess I should get started on the thing, but then again I’m still trying to work out what it should be that I cover this morning. I could talk about the attempt to buy more toilet paper and not being able to due to everywhere being sold out which of course comes with a whole host of problems. I’m just trying to stock up on the regular purchase of which we are nearly out and need another pack and instead of being able to do so right now, I need to plan ahead. Tomorrow morning my partner is going in one direction and I’m going in another direction so as to be at two different places at once so we can increase our chances of getting a pack for the house. Hopefully we get one. Don’t know if we will.

It’s a weird time.

Then again, I’m still certain that with perseverance and following guidelines and minimising contact, we will get through this, but I don’t really want to talk about that too much either. It’s a bleak time but I don’t think I can add anything to the conversation and would rather keep on focusing on being resilient where possible and getting through all of this as best as we all can.

Well, now that that is covered I don’t think I’ve anything else I can talk about or mention. I really think I might’ve hit my limit for the morning. This does seem like it would be a good place to end the whole thing, but maybe it isn’t. Maybe there are better places, but of course there is no way of telling unless I actually get there. I guess we’ll have to see.

Perhaps I should end this here. I do have a review I need to finish and it nearly is finished. There’s probably a few more hours of work that I do need to do on it so as to make sure it reads well, though it probably won’t; or, at least I won’t think it will in a few years from now. There’s no way of telling unless I finish it off and finishing it off is what I intend to do. Hopefully it will be done before the day’s end. There are a bunch of interview questions I need to send off to artists so as to be able to cover their creations in ways that aren’t just reviews. Hopefully I can get that done today. No way to tell until I actually sit down and get it done.

However, for this morning it will only be work on the review. So many words to edit, but still it’s editing that I can get done. Maybe I can’t. Maybe I’ll end up scrapping the whole thing and starting again. I did that with the review of Trail of Dead’s X. I can do it again.

Well, technically I only did it for most of the review of that album. There were some sentences that carried over.

Hopefully I can get a lot done before the commencement of work. Of course only time will tell, but I’m sure that if I knuckle down enough I can get a lot done before I need to get into the meat of the calls.

Of course this is even assuming that I want to knuckle down, of which I do, but I probably won’t as right now it’s kind of nice to be able to float around a bit and do other things. We’ll see. We’ll see how it all turns out. Maybe there will be something, maybe there will be nothing. Maybe I will do both. Maybe I’m just trying to buy some time until the next thing floats on into my head. I don’t know.

Maybe I do know.

So anyway, I think I’ve now covered everything. I feel like this thing kind of feels like a roller coaster, or perhaps more like going down a hill into a dip that seemingly slows down before going back up another hill to try and stop at the top.

I think that carries the sentiment of what I’m trying to get across.

Well, I guess right now I should go back to trying to find a location that would be best to stop off at to have a quick rest and get a good view of stuff whilst driving back into the middle of nowhere, as soon that will happen again and having the stop gives a bit of time for me to rest my hands from the driving and the holding of the wheel of steering. Either that or I should go back to working on stuff. A bit too much procrastination and not enough working this morning, I think. Then again, I was hoping for something with a certain tone, but that never happened and instead I came up with this thing.

The time it took to write one thousand words: 15:23:17

I think that I might be getting better at reaching this amount of words.

I’m satisfied with the result, though I feel as though I wrote about more things than I wanted.

Hopefully it leads to more long-form writing down the track.

Written at home.
