Day 4025: February 26, 2024

Prompt: “It starts with this: put your desk in the corner, and every time you sit down there to write, remind yourself why it isn't in the middle of the room. Life isn't a support system for art. It's the other way around.”
Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

Where is your desk located? If you don't have a desk, where do you write? Does the location of your desk encourage or discourage your creativity?

Anything to do with Stephen King, I am in. I read "The Stand" before it became a classic. My favorite was that one until "Misery" where once you read the book, the movie is practically scene for scene exactly like the book. I loaned my copy to my brother-in-law. Probably a year later we were at his house. I asked him about my book. He said he had his own copy and never borrowed mine.

Neither a borrower or lender be.

Oh, this was not the point of the prompt. Honestly, the point flew right over my head.

Give me midnight overtime. Some hours in between 12 am and 12:01 am. Bonus time. Enough time to read untold number of emails. Correspond with my friends. Initiate new ideas. Write something unique.

I am tired but a happy tired. Happy to be here. Happy to have my new and former friends. Happy to pick and choose what I want to get involved in. There is no shortage of choices.

My blog entry just disappeared. I am done trying and will try for tomorrow.

or the next day,

or the day after that.

I should write an emotional poem about hitting an errant key and wiping out what I have worked hard at. I know I should put it in Notepad or Word or somewhere as Dave Ryan gently reminded me the last time this happened. I can become impatient when I have a list as long as Santa's to get through. There are always tasks left over.

When I worked as a manager in customer service, my long-time director was adamant about doing what you could without staying after work to keep plugging away at things you think have to get completed. It helped be better at time management.

I am still mulling over how I want to make a special page with my favorite MBs displayed. Not that I don't appreciate all the new ones Writing.com support is providing but there are some exclusive ones I have never seen. They please me. I would like to have them in one place. I believe I visited Princess Megan Rose to see how hers are displayed.

I will take some time tomorrow to visit the place where the yellow case recipients hang out. I was happy to see several people I have grown close to in the Class of 2024.

I reconstructed this blog entry after all because I put out an invitation for visitors. It is not as brief now as it was. If you read through to here, let me know so I can acknowledge you.

Blogging Circle of Friends My image item number was unavailable. I will edit it when I get a minute.

Prompt: Write about a webcam connecting to another universe.

Julie looked fondly at Syman's insides thinking back to creating his mechanisms back on Earth. She and her team endured a five-year space trip to Ramada in the effervescent Universe she now called home base. It was a routine visit to her shop for routine maintenance. Getting this webcam for Ramada, in the Solidarity Universe was a miracle for the beings on Ramada. A combination of Earthlings, native-born, and those seeking asylum from other universes kept immigration offices humming.

Intake applications were completed by novice nerds, a term of endearment. They were really robots which could do the job all day and night and never get bored.

The webcam opened new avenues of communication. Julie minored in Speech Communication in college. She loved to speak almost as much as she wanted to build things. Her natural ability got her noticed and the rest was history.

She left her Syman in perfect order, waiting for a nervous nelly to come by and transport him back to the King's mega office. If you asked, Julie would explain Syman is an acronym for System Yes Made All New. She liked the process of being the one to name her new inventions. Next she was going to revolutionize phone service. She was pondering a name as she stepped into a transport vehicle. Neighborly Ned was her driver. She couldn't wait until he told her a joke that was sure to find her laughing all the way home.

My mind is still a heap of mush. I am spinning too many plates in the air at one time. I am one of those people who has not learned to use the word no. I am doing some new stuff and find it challenging but rewarding when it is finished.

Blog City Prompt

On February 17th, 1992, convicted serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer was sentenced to 15 consecutive life terms for a series of gruesome murders; he was later killed by a fellow prison inmate. What do you know about infamous serial killers? I've included a quiz, if you want to try your luck for fun.

I took the quiz. Did not do well. I have been fascinated by serial killers for a very long time. Until I saw the recent movie about Jeffrey Dahlmer, I had only read about them. Seeing the way he got his victims and the way he killed them in a movie grossed me out.

I have started watching court TV. The murder trials are single people usually killing one person. The latest trial is about a father who murdered his 5 year old daughter by beating her to death when she peed in the car they were living in. His girlfriend or wife was not the girl's mother but witnessed the murder which was covered up for several years with the corpse in the crawl space above the air vent.

Could be why I have been a little down lately.

February 16th,1861 Abraham Lincoln stops his train at Westfield on his way to Washington to thank 11-year old Grace Bedell in person for her advice to grow a beard to gain more votes. How do you feel about beards? Should they be trimmed neatly or left to grow out naturally? If you were seeking a new person in your life, would the beard be a deal breaker?

I am not a fan of beards for my guy. Mine had a mustache when I met him. I was not shy about telling him I did not like the mustache. On the second date, the mustache was gone. We were married nine months later. Others are welcome to wear beards that are neatly trimmed. No goatees, though. They look devilish to me.

I am tired of writing. I have a couple of medical issues. Cataracts and a bum knee. The vision thing is a real problem when writing. I am waiting to see when surgery can be set up.
