52 Books, 52 Weeks

A while back while watching some youtube Let’s Play of some weird videogame, one of the let’s players mentioned a challenge called the 52 book challenge. Aparently on reddit there is a challenge to read 52 books in 52 weeks, meaning a book a year for a year.

Thats impossible right? who has time to read that much?

Well, me. Thats who. Or at least I am going to start making time to read. I don’t know if I will make it a whole year reading a book a week, but I at least want to start reading more often and this challenge seems like a good incentive to do that.

Now, it could end up like my NANOWRIMO incident a year or two ago where I almost made it to the 50,000 word count and then just gave up. But hey, at least I tried 🙂

So, starting today monday, June 29th 2015 I am going to read. My first book, The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan. It also is the first book in a fourteen book series so hopefully this will keep it going for a while.

Until then, READ ON!

Discouraged

So, the last few days, weeks, something have felt very….odd. I don’t know what has happened but my motivation to create has simply disappeared. My inspiration has run out and so I just haven’t made any jewelry, I haven’t been cooking, and writing seems tedious to me.

What happened?

Maybe its the stress of life. Maybe its worrying about whether or not I worked enough hours in a week. But my passion is depleted. I tried cooking the other day and it turned out all right, but it wasn’t fun.

I need to find fun again. Maybe I’ll go for a hike or read a book. I don’t know. Everything just seems so weird now.

I’m trying to get into writing again because I really want to write this graphic novel with my stepsister. However, the words just don’t flow as easily as they used to. I find myself struggling with each sentence and wanting to just give up.

Meh. I need some positivity. Or inspiration. Inspiration would be good too.
