I didn't do a "Things I've Learned This Week" this week because I didn't really learn anything new, wrote about how attractive people are, and then got distracted watching "Dinner For Schmucks".
But on the upside, I managed to write a 7 page long synopsis for a new story. I'm not going to lie, it was kind of inspired by Hitman and the gorgeous Timothy Olyphant with his shaved head and defined pectorals, wait . . . what was I talking about? Oh yeah the story. Usually I just end up writing some weird jumble of sentences that mean nothing to me when I read back on them, or perhaps the remnants of a dream I've had.
Eventually they all just go into my little black book of insanity to await further instruction.
Except yesterday I had an epiphany, and all of a sudden I had written an entirely plausible plot synopsis, character sheets and a tie in to my other book. So technically, if I put effort into it, I could have not one, but two books written by the end of this year.
Too bad I'm lazy as f**k with one hell of a non-existent attention span. Good thing I can get excited about almost anything really easily, and actually have genuine desire to make this story come true.
I'm hoping I can write a 4000 word scene by Wednesday that may be remotely good enough to submit to a short story competition. 'Cause it would be pretty cool if I won. What better incentive to continue the story than a cash prize and the general agreement that it's better than most others.
Oh well, time to watch some Game of Thrones and imagine the satisfaction I would get by punching Joffrey in the face. It's become a Monday tradition now. I'll be sad when the little s**t finally gets offed, I'll have to find someone else to imagine bludgeoning to death.
