#WednesdayWisdom: Onward

Standard

It’s definitely chilly today, with the kinds of clouds that mean snow if it gets any colder. Coats with fake fur of all varieties abound.

Here we go.

Still, it’s quietish. Kind of like the hush before the battle.

It happens every year. Yet somehow it’s a surprise.

I admit I’ve been slow on the editing recently, and wow am I happy not to be doing NaNoWriMo. This week, particularly would be a tough one with that pressure.

Slow and steady, right? That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

Have a great Wednesday!


#WednesdayWisdom: Blah it out.

Standard

I’m all kinds of blah today. The weather certainly isn’t helping, it’s rainy and gray and it’s probably going to stay that way until it snows, which may be sooner rather than later.

I’ve had zero coffee so far, which is probably contributing to the blahness of it all. Nothing like coffee to get that blah on its blah-y way.

I had a blah night’s sleep too, so that could be another wrench in the old, hmm, something funnier than “works.”

See what I mean?

Definitely blah.

So when blah, I propose you be the most blah you can be.

Extremes are the enemies of blah. Or so the theory goes. We’ll see.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

#WednesdayWisdom: Now

Standard

So it’s bright and sunny today, and it’s almost as though the rainy gloom of the last few days never happened. I’m not sure whether that cold I thought I was getting is happening, but I figure if I don’t bother it it won’t bother me.

Wishful thinking, I’m sure.

Still it’s the kind of day that makes Fall a favorite season. Cute boots and pretty trees, what more does a person need?

And I think that’s the thing for today. Take a moment to notice something, something that likely won’t be the same tomorrow.

Notice now.

And I’m off to notice how much work I have ahead of me in my manuscript. Have an awesome Wednesday.

#WednesdayWisdom: Gloomy

Standard

It’s a gray day, with uneven clouds that may or may not rain. I could check the weather and find out, but why ruin the mystery?

We’re halfway through October already, and it feels like this year is the last of the bathwater circling the drain.

Does anyone still take baths anymore?

Regardless, there it goes, glug glug.

November is looming and I’ve yet to make a decision on NaNoWriMo. I don’t usually commit until the day before. Last year I got a terrible cold, and just couldn’t finish.

So who knows with this year. Challenges are good, but they’re not always the thing you need, and that’s OK too.

Consider that your wisdom for this Wednesday. Have a great day.

#WednesdayWisdom: Filtering

Standard

It’s rainy today, but not dramatically. More like the sky is whining.

In the close distance, there’s a siren. Which isn’t unusual, it’s the city, after all. Now it’s faded away, someone’s emergency is largely out of earshot.

I think I slept better last night, though I remember dreaming of asteroid chunks hitting the earth, of people in filtering masks, of windowless bathrooms used for shelter.

You know, cheerful stuff.

No wisdom so far, though. Aside from you’re really going to want some kind of filter over your face if a broken-up asteroid hits the earth.

Nice one, subconscious. At least it’s thorough.

It’s amazing how much your imagination works for you when you’re dreaming. Might as well harness it. Dreams can really give you writing fodder.

And there’s the wisdom, of a sort. Have a fantastic Wednesday.

#WednesdayWisdom: And it tastes terrible

Standard

If you, like me, are a fan of “The Good Place,” (tragically beginning its final season tomorrow), you will understand this simile, as I feel much like Chidi and his marshmallow peeps chili.

Here’s the scene because it’s brilliant.

ANYWAY, with the news of the reality that the Russia investigation didn’t even slow trump down when it comes to illegally soliciting information from foreign governments, nor leveraging US assets to do so, I kind of feel like my brain is broken. So much corruption. So out in the open.

But because Mitch McConnell is personally profiting, he will prevent trump from facing any consequences.

So that’s neat.

It’s kind of additionally Peep-chili-prompting to think that a single man can hold the entire US government hostage. Of course, it’s not just him, it’s his whole party, or they would remove him.

And here we are.

Yes, that’s more politics than I usually go into here, but you can’t sit in the middle of an inferno and remark upon the weather for politeness’ sake.

I hope you have as good a Wednesday as is possible.

#WednesdayWisdom: #PromptaPalooza Plot

Standard

Sometimes you just want to go and you don’t want to think about how to get there. And that’s today’s #PromptaPalooza prompt! Plot.

Today we’re using a “really random plot” from Springhole.net. It’s another site up to the brim with generators, and a very fun place to poke around. So fun, you might suffer from too many ideas.

Ah.

Too many ideas.

Today’s prompt: use the following plot.

An annoying werewolf must stop a puppet with a primitive country.

Random generators are definitely wisdom you can use. Have a fantastic Wednesday!
