I was thinking on my way to the bus stop earlier about what more I might want to do with this blog. I’m no prolific or eloquent writer or nothing but I’ve always told myself, (and other people as well), where I may lack in areas compared to others I make up for it with my honesty. I stand by that statement even now.
when I was in, like, the ninth grade, (for the second time), I started writing these short stories with my brother. it started out of boredom. eventually our writings began to get passed about person to person once we realized someone other than ourselves found our ridiculousness humorous. we wrote about these characters loosely based off us and people we know or ran across in a fictional city.
the format for said stories was obtuse in the way we wrote it, it was like a screenplay and short story mashup. this was a quick way for us to write so the next few pages could get passed around day to day while at the same time making it easier for our peers to read. also, after a while coupled with the new discover of Adult Swim and my desire to create an animated and or graphic novel version of the stories, we assumed transferring them to whatever format would be easy with the way we wrote. somehow we failed to pursue such dreams and aspirations for whatever reason despite making a mild buzz with our respective circles.
during the time I was locked up I entertained myself and fellow inmates the same way to help pass time.
why I never kept all these shorts is beyond me. some were lost or thrown away for whatever reason…
but like I mentioned previously I was thinking of content to add to my blog and I thought I would add the shorts again. maybe write a little here and there. since I no longer have my brother to help me write I suppose I could make the attempt to create a whole new world. hopefully I’ll build up my writing skills a bit in the process, get my mojo back, and add diversity to this blog because this journal thing isn’t going to be enough for me. I might start tomorrow or sometime this weekend.
I’m actually inwardly geeked about it because I miss writing. the fact I’d possibly entertain a person or two is a plus too, Lord willing.
