Thinking, ramblings, and such

Author: Jax Cassidy // Category: , , ,
This crazy weather is kicking my butt. Seriously. Just when I think I'm recovering, I start feeling horrible again. I haven't wanted to do any work except rest but even resting makes me restless. I can't seem to get back into that work frame of mind, and productivity is non-existent it seems--but it appears there's plenty of time to think up new story ideas. Not that I need to add any more to my long list of "proposals to write"...but it keeps me a little sane. I've also lost interest in design work so it's become more of a chore these days than a creative outlet...I shall push on.

Well, this new vegetarian (sometimes seafood) diet I'm on has been really good for me. I've also cut out sodas completely, which I thought would kill me, but it was pretty easy. I now replace anything fizzy with teas, vitamin water, and plain 'ole boring water. I'll eventually cut out more sugar but man, it's going to be hard since I love to sweeten up my coffee and teas. Baby steps. I'll get there once I start running again. I just don't want to chance it until my foot heals completely. I kept pushing off my X-rays so I'm wondering if it's worth going to get it done at all. We'll see.

Thankfully, today I'm feeling more like myself and will be working on graphic projects. Since my hiatus from writing I've been thinking more and more about my Young Adult (YA) stuff. I'm really excited about doing them and can't wait to jump in once I've gotten all my current projects out. A lot of it has to do with watching all the Manga stories turned into Korean Romantic Comedies. It's been inspiring and it's something I'd love to write because anyone would be able to read it, not just for adults. Hopefully I can start on the brainstorming in a week or two. I've also been thinking about pursuing screenwriting again. I really miss it. I was wondering if it would ever fade away but the screenwriter in me is nagging me to seriously work on something for tv or film again. I've always loved writing romantic comedies and dramedies so I know it's a goal for me this year. I can most definitely do it but I'd have to sacrifice a lot of my social life. I kind of get anti-social when I'm juggling different projects. I'm ready to buckle down or else I won't have anything releasing in the near future which is kind of scary. I always wonder if my readers would forget me or be annoyed that I'm not writing fast enough. I won't think about it too much. At least I can say I am ready to get back on the saddle again...finally!

Speaking of movies--I'm really looking forward to the July release of BEASTLY. It's basically a modern day retelling of Beauty & The Beast. I totally adore Alex Pettyfer who plays the lead role...makes me feel sort of like a "cougar" for finding him attractive! Oh, to be 20 again!! LOL I've added a short featurette about the movie if you haven't heard anything about it...

Hopefully this is and will be a productive week for you!

I'm so sorry that being sick has been kicking your butt so much. I'm glad the juices are flowing again though. Always good to see you out and about. Write away!

Feeling better finally! I'm going to be writing all next week and hopefully get my revisions out.

Kwana, that guy is so FINE! LOL

December, I have a weakness for booze too!

Sorry you've been feeling 'blah'. I know how that gets when you're having physical issues and the internal compass just seems to be going haywire.

Hopefully the writing week will boost your spirits. It's all in a continuous feedback loop and a couple of upticks will hopefully pull everything else along with it!

I hope you're feeling better soon! I've never heard of Beastly but thanks for pointing it out, it's on my list of things to see now. If we're both still living here when it comes out we can see it together!
