Stuck Like Glue

That stupid country song has been stuck in my head. I hope it is now stuck in yours.

Too many books, songs, and movies anymore are so blah and plain and unoriginal. I want to write something different. I want to write something people will WANT to read, something with substance and real thought... It's easier said than done.

Up until my laptop charger broke a week ago, I'd been writing lame, fluffy stuff on my computer just to keep the creative juices flowing. I have yet to find something I sincerely WANT to write about. I don't want to be inane or redundant. I used to be able to write stuff that made people go, Holy crap...! I want that back.


It would seem that I have lost my mojo.

Though I have come to the realization that writers - at least the dramatic ones - are bloodsucking vampires that leech all of the dramatic... goodness from every day events. It's like your mind never stops churning. You mentally narrate your day, if only for the satisfaction of saying you wrote something - anything - even if only in your head. Every person, every thing, every event that would make a good story is catalogued for later reference.

Sometimes it feels like it should suck the enjoyment out of life, but I think it makes it rather interesting.

Sometimes I sit and watch people and the way they react to certain conversations and/or environmental changes. Psychology is one of my other fascinations, in case you were wondering. I think I want to write something dark and twisty and psychological, but I lack a solid idea and sincere motivation.

Well. There I go again, off rambling on some random tangent.


I'm done for tonight... Done.
