My Writing Life: Issue 2
Alright, I know, let me explain why this post is late. I don’t write on the weekends, yes, I know, I should, but I spend that time with my family, girlfriend, and church. I do some planning and write if I get inspired to do so, but typically, I won’t be writing on the weekends. The exception being any project I’m working on. Right now, most of my projects are in revision or outlining phases.
Expository Writing: On Monday I wrote a piece about Giannis Antetokounmpo and how he came from a low-income family and that’s why he helps community service programs because those programs helped his family. Tuesday’s story was about how the WWE might be blacklisting Roman Reigns and I posted the results of the Monday Night Raw. Today, I started research for piece on Left-Eye and TLC, my favorite woman’s group of all time.
Persuasive Writing: On Monday and Tuesday I slaved away on finishing my Grandia 2 review and started watching Blue Exorcist as my next anime review. I love researching.
Fictional Writing: I’m working on the script for Lust. Right now I’m still deciding on the target audience and format. I’m leaning towards making it similar to the anime Psycho-Pass and Aria: The Scarlet Bullet which is also a Ranobe (Japanese Light Novel). I also starting thumbnailing the first pages of the first issue of the comic. In addition, I started redesigning the main cast of Favor of Ares.
Today I started redesigning the characters from Binary, the first book of what now will be called Sword Dancer(s). If you like Arthurian mythos than prepare to love this book.
The video game project I’m working on, Head 2 Head, is still being drafted. I’m trying to decide how deep of a story I want to tell.
Personal Writing: I’m keeping with my exercise routine. On Monday and today, I worked my upper body and cardio. On Tuesday, I worked on my lower body and cardio. I’m not hurting like I was on Monday, I barely finished the cardio program, which isn’t like me. Keeping up with my medications and drinking at least 5 glasses of water and eating fruit every day. I still haven’t made it to eating three meals, but I will get there.
Spiritually, I’m staying consistent with doing my devotionals every morning. Today was about God’s ultimate forgiveness for us. I know I try every day to forgive others. It’s a hard concept, but one that is needed, even if you are not religious. Dnt’ get me wrong, I’m not saying you will heal automatically, healing takes time, but holding on to the past will keep you there.
Financially, I’m blessed during this time. I now own a full share with the Walt Disney Company and I almost have a share in Apple. I’m trying to invest in some monthly dividend companies. I’m knocking off some of my debt, the advantage of living with your parents as you recover. I should be back on my feet faster than I anticipated, especially when I return to work at Hyatt…if I still have a job there.
I started my sixth class with Full Sail this week. Creative Portfolio 1. We’re learning how to brand ourselves as writers. so this blog will be seeing a redesign soon. It will be more focused on screen-writing, but I will still be posting about sports, because hey, it’s entertainment too.
Thanks for reading and remember
