Sorry that I have been missing in action the past couple of weeks. Sometimes life gets hard and I struggle to write during those times. That has actually been me the past couple of months, but these past two weeks my depression has really gotten the better of me. Some days I can't even turn on the computer to get writing work done. Of course I am a writer, so not writing just fuels my depression and a vicious cycle begins.
Last night I was asked to write a flash fiction story for my publisher, which I truly hope is up to their standards, but being asked for something directly helped to push me into action. I wrote a 1000 word story. I am blogging this morning. It may not seem like a lot, but I hope that means that my mind is seeing some light and that I might be getting back to writing. At least I pray that I am.
You see writing really helps me with my depression. Writing helps me escape some of the harsh realities I am dealing with in my real life. Writing is part of me and I need to do it to stay sane. When I struggle with words, well I struggle even more in life. That is why writing is so important to this person with depression.
A couple of times this year I have tried to start a consistent exercise program, only to be derailed by health and life. And that is how I find myself starting over once again. Sometimes falling off the exercise wagon makes me feel like a loser, but I always manage to pick myself back up and again and start over. As long as I keep trying I am making forward progress.
Now I am still suffering from some long term health issues, so this time I am starting off smaller and building as my body will let me. That means I'm mainly focusing on walking and getting my steps back up and doing yoga on a daily basis again. I think that I what I am going to focus on until the end of the year. Maybe if I ease my body into exercise, I can start to add more after the new year.
While I do hope to lose some weight from this exercise program, what is more important to me is feeling better and helping my health. I'm hoping this time I don't push myself too far and overdo it, that way hopefully I can stick to it this time. If not, well I will just start over one more time.
As many of you that follow this blog may know, I am a huge movie fan and like to post reviews pretty often. I have had a bit of a lull in the movie department of late, but this past weekend I managed to finally go see Thor: Ragnarok. Now I am a huge comic fan and love the Marvel Universe. This is the type of movie that I have come to expect from Marvel, but a little different from the Thor that we have come to know in his previous solo movies. This take on Thor is a bit more lighthearted and action packed. It looks like the writer and director might have taken a more Guardians of the Galaxy approach, which did work well though I personally thought some of the jokes were forced. The only other issue I had with the movie was how they treated the character of Bruce Banner, come on the man is a genius and I don't think he would have been as lost as some scenes showed him no matter what the circumstances. Other than that this is a fun movie to watch, full of laughs and action. Thor is still Thor, Loki is there being Loki and I hope that the ending means that we will be seeing more of one of my favorite villains, Hulk is there and smashing things. The addition of Cate Blanchett as the evil Hela was the best part of the movie for me, she gave an awesome performance and is my favorite villain to date! I also loved a little cameo that takes place early on, I would love to see Loki interact with that character a lot more. If you like MArvel movies or just fun blockbusters then this is a must see for you! I give it a B+.
This month is National Write a Novel Month, which means authors all across the globe are feverishly writing away, getting as many words in as they can. I fully intended to be one of those authors, but health and life seem to be getting in the way. I am so far behind in my writing that its not even funny. I am working on finishing a current work in progress and am still only in the note taking stage for the main novel I wanted to work on this month. Unless my wordage really picks up, well then it looks like I may not be getting my novel done this month.
Struggling with my writing just at the time that other authors are hitting some high points makes me a little depressed sometimes. Then I remember that I am only in competition with myself and even a few words a day are a win sometimes. I am still making some progress and that is better than nothing. Do I wish that I were writing more right now? Of course. Does it make me a loser if I can't keep up with others? No, it just means that I am going through a slow time right now. I am still writing and still moving towards more releases and to my dreams. I need to just keep that in mind on my bad days.
