Veeery messy at the moment, crocheting and doodling…

So many ideas, so little time

I’m currently crocheting (baby blanket for my new nephew – love how that rhymes) and drawing cards for a fundraiser event, and painting canvases for the same fundraiser event and two hours ago I pelted out two pages of words for Eros, and introduced a completely new character who I have no clue who is – except that she claims to be Eros’ wife…

And I want to write more on Eros and find out what part she is playing in the whole story.

I also want a full time job. And at the same time I don’t.

I want to be able to do what I do for a living. But that requires more work, less *procrastinating!* *ahem…*

I’ve been thinking of starting a business, an art business, and go to events and parties and such and paint with kids – that would be fun, wouldn’t it? But I don’t know if it is sustainable. (and the biggest problem seems to be coming up with a name >.<)
I’m also thinking of renaming this blog to “a mad artist’s blog” because it’s not only about writing… or craftists or a mad idea’s blog… I actually like the sound of that πŸ™‚

I would also want to live outside the city, somewhere remote, with a plot of land, vegetables, chicken and our own house… then again, I also want to be an alien, so these *wants* are more fancies than wants. (I want to be like Dr Who, how amazing wouldn’t that be? πŸ˜€ )

I’ve started with water colours (aquarell colours – what you wanna call ’em).

Little slow at the moment, but hopefully something will come of it. I also want to draw anime (watched Appleseed anime movie from 2004 – I quite like anime movies especially if they’re science fiction.)

I’m also on Pinterest in case you didn’t know. (secretly pinterest-addict)

2012 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner can carry about 250 passengers. This blog was viewed about 1,200 times in 2012. If it were a Dreamliner, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.

Click here to see the complete report.

If you’re remotely interested. I know lately I’ve fallen behind, but as I wrote, I’m writing on other things, and I’ve got a ban on internet before noon so I get a lot of stuff done in the morning (I just wishΒ  my evenings would be as productive, but one cannot have everything I guess)

Here’s to you, dear reader, who have read my blog. Thank you for 2012!

The reason I’m so absent

The writing has been temporarily put on the shelf, mostly due to this little fellow:

Baby Z

I’ll hopefully get back to writing when life is a little less chaotic and I’ve managed to sleep more than three hours… πŸ™‚

Meanwhile: Keep on writing! πŸ™‚

I’m not very organised when it comes to writing

I’ll have to admit that. Even with work (I should rather write “work”) not being much of a problem I’ve sort of fallen off the writing wagon. I just don’t write, even though i sort of want to. I blame I’m too tired, I’ll do it tomorrow, the next day, next week and so on… with the result of 0, zero, nil, zip, zilch, nada words written at all. It kind of bugs me.

Because I WANT to write. I really WANT to, but obviously not wanting it enough. How would I otherwise just not do it?

I was going to write and finish Getting Even in June, I have barely finished the first chapter (which will probably be scrapped later on any ways) I have started a short novella for a competition (in Swedish) and I have had a lot of thoughts about it, about the plot, the main character, the other characters and what should happen to them. (The theme is Summer and Something Scary) I’m aiming for a sci-fi novella. To be honest I have never written anything sci-fi from the beginning to the end. It always ends before it starts in the middle whatever I write in the sci-fi genre. So this time I’m trying to really really finish it (with a beginning, middle and end).

Something is telling me though that I’m not trying hard enough.

Do or do not. There is no try…

 

Here be… Smaug?

So, I got the Black dragon from Games Workshop and have been debating with myself if I really want it black, or maybe white? Or blue? Green would be cool too, and red, and fiery orange blazing… which resulted in a half painted figure without wings.

I thought I had a picture of the half-painting on my computer, but obviously not, so here’s an unpainted pic. I’m having trouble with the wings. If I glue them on it’s gonna be hell to move the dragon as that would require a cube of padding. As it is now it can go in the flat box it came in…

The writing is going… very slow, but quite steady. I’ve started planning more and currently I’m working on Getting Even because it’s CampNaNo! πŸ™‚ As I said, it’s going slow, but I’ve got a map and a compass, so I know where I’m going (for once)

I like surprises and gifts and to share stuff with friends, so here’s another thing I want to share with you:

Free Kindle Books and Tips

While I’m doing other stuff and worry about other things and work… well… like a lazy person, I thought I’d just let you know that I have not abandoned this blog. And I haven’t died. My life just moves more in the real world right now rather than in the virtual. A lot of things going on at the moment and the Olympics is closing in, and the moving date in the same week.

Don’t worry, I’ll be back… eventually… in two months or three or… so…

Not very reassuring, but I promise, I’ll be back (said with Arnold Schwarzenegger (yeah, I spelled that right) accent) Meanwhile, here’s a link to keep you going. Who doesn’t like free stuff eh?
