Rest and Routine

Well, I took a day off after meeting my deadline for a thesis chapter yesterday. Until the late afternoon, when I had to start cooking (a chickpea curry which, especially for a first try, turned out quite tasty, if I do say so myself ^_^), I was able to do pretty much whatever I wanted. Being able to wake up and relax rather than worry about things I need to finish. It was a really nice change of pace! Felt good!

The one thing that bothers me, though, is that I really haven’t been writing at all, or even done anything writing related this day. I’ve had all day. Could have worked on more preparations for the book, think about how to finally progress the uncharted parts of Project Realm, visualize more of my characters, continue the less than halfway done Star Wars stories… Heck, I could go for ye olde Daily Writing exercise I did when I started my blog again! It’s fun and a great way to get and keep the creative juices flowing, but I sadly found much less time for it since I started working on my thesis and non-study related writing was pushed back to only the late hours of the evening. Instead I just did, well, other stuff. It wasn’t until almost halfway into the evening that the writing gears actually began grinding.

Reserving the day for study and domestic activities and (if time permits) the evening for free writing and other more relaxing things was something I’d implemented so I was able to actually get work done on my thesis. It has since become pretty much a daily routine, which, I suppose has stuck with me through this non-work day as well. It’s understandable. Routines are not easily changed, after all. But it is also, a bit odd, especially considering that on days I’m working I always imagine how when I have a lot of free time, I’m going to finally do all the writing I wanted to do but couldn’t. And whether it’s because of routine or not, no such luck today. -_-

Although, maybe it’s a good thing the routine hasn’t been broken just yet. Starting tomorrow it’s back to work again and I’m going to need the consistency if I want any chance of not drawing that writing process out again and actually get done with it within the next month. So until that moment when the gates of creativity will be allowed to swing wide open, I suppose after-dinner Archive writing it is. There are a lot worse ways to spend your evenings, right? ^_^


Ever since a group of shoes held a birthday party a long, long time ago (though in a galaxy not that far away) a little boy’s appreciation for creation was born. And so, throughout the following years shoes partied, a dinosaur travelled through time, oddly shaped football players went on adventures, a young wanderer became a knight, a comedian rose to godhood, Jedi fought an evil empire, a war between cyborg warlords and human-insect hybrids engulfed the world… The boy had learned how with only words on paper (and from times to time a few pictures) he was able to bring people, places, even entire worlds to life. By now that little boy has reached almost the third decade of his life and his love for telling stories has not ceased. And finally, long after he had planned to, he has decided to share these stories with the world. Whether you are a new or already familiar face: welcome to this little archive of mine! This is a place where I will, finally, actually be sharing my writing with others. It will feature pretty much anything I feel like sharing, both old and new stories, fan-fiction and original content, and probably some non-fiction added in at times. So, if you like reading, writing, stories (or me ^_~), drop by, drop a comment (I can’t promise I’ll get back to you quickly, since I’m horrible at that, but I’ll do my best) and, drop it like it’s hot. … Sorry… ^_^; In any case, I hope you’ll enjoy yourself and I look forward to seeing you around!

Who? Just your average descendant of two sea-faring peoples, recently graduated anthropology Master and aspiring author with a life-long passion for writing.

What? Uhm, human. I think... Also a bit crazy, but in a good way. I think...

Where? A land under the sea, far, far away. Occasionally with my head in the clouds.

Why? Trying to get both my work and my love for writing out there, sharing them with others and getting in touch with fellow writers, artists and other like-minded people.

Hi! ^_^
