Funny thing about things. I’m quite upset with my art as of late, and my writing hasn’t exactly been up to snuff. I can’t get my head around these past few days, and it’s been a hell of a time. My only recluse these days has been playing video games, which I’m scared is rotting my mind. It’s quite the serious accusation, as I love gaming, and thought it loved me back (insert domestic abuse joke here).
Anyway, it’s fair to say that I’m just being lazy, and that it’s my fault for not knuckling down and finishing. In part, you’d be absolutely right, but I’d appreciate a little consideration, as I’m always trying to write, whether I want to or not. I’m like that guy who never turns off. I’m always doing something to make people laugh, or bring out a sense of irony in everyday situations, or even add a dark twist to a common story. A perfect example would be how I could change the ending of the little mermaid just a little, and then Ursela kills Ariel, the King, and her little fish too. At the very end, you see her eating the crab while the Erik poses for a family portrait and his dog takes a shit their mergraves. Ok….I can see I went too far, but I do that all the time. My current book has two torture scenes, and at least 13 murders. It features corrupted visions of youth, and a lead character who, despite his sense of humor and overwhelming desire to do good in the world, has been assigned the task of taking down his ex-girlfriend. She’s not only the only woman he ever trusted, but also the physical representation of not only his failure to better the world, but implicit evidence that he’s made it worse.
Enough about MEEGF. I feel this blog is trailing off. I’ll post again when I’ve gathered my thoughts.
