Howdy Toasters, Nothing is flowing. Finding my characters, creating their story, bringing them to life, writing something interesting, finishing an idea, it’s just not happening. Every idea sounds too self interested, not creative enough, too creative, bland, copies of other pieces I’ve read or just not very good. I’m annoyed, frustrated and i want to give up. The more i try the more it feels forced and the less anything, even anything bad, bubbles to the surface. Ideas for stories stare out at me, teasing me, tormenting me… i just don’t where to take any of them. In the (clearly … Continue reading 642:10 What does writers block feel like?
642:9 What can happen in a second
Howdy Toasters, Alphabetising music, movie and tv collections, counting fruit as it’s cut to ensure an even number of pieces and the need for colour patterns are all special quirks that freak me out if they don’t happen.It’s fair to … Continue reading 642:8 describe in detail the most boring thing imaginable
Howdy Toasters, Being unable to exercise and having to tone down my lifestyle while I recover from my glamour wound, as destiny would have it I’ve been skating along at a slower pace of late. Devouring books like Haruki Murakami’s … Continue reading botanical beauty and my uncharacteristic wholesome imbalance
It was all she could think about. The blue was even more vibrant than she remembered, like the ocean on a bright summer day. She was reminded of The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, her grandfather’s favourite poem. He used to recite it to her, his voice tempered with the characters and emotion and the last verse always welled tears in his eyes. He went like one that hath been stunned, And is of sense forlorn: A sadder and a wiser man He rose the morrow morn. He wasn’t an overly emotional man, no more than … Continue reading 642 – 7: What a character holding a blue object is thinking right now.
Howdy Toasters, The artist is a fictional character, here he previews his latest work and discusses his inspiration. I’d been planning a new work for sometime but just wasn’t connected to any of my projects and nothing i was creating was worthy of evolving into major works. I was tired, angry with my lack of creativity, hallucinogenicly sleep deprived & high from a days long banquet of illicitness, believing I’d finally exhausted my talent, in that melodramatic way you do, and needing some light to dawn in the chasm i was staring down when I saw the lamp glowing in … Continue reading the artist – enlightened
Howdy Toasters, So i’ve discovered a new creative writing book, because 642 Things to Write About apparently isn’t enough. The Amazing Story Generator is a whole book of flip fun that takes storytelling to crazytown! Click the link to read about it. I hope you’re ready for a decent dose of WTF because the first story title i flipped to create is “On vacation for the first time in years a licensed cat hair stylist discovers who really killed JFK” (wow, told you… crazytown)…. Philomeyna Tonkinese is a lady in demand. Every Burmese Persian, Russian Blue and Singapura from Australia … Continue reading On vacation for the first time in years a licensed cat hair stylist discovers who really killed JFK
Howdy Toasters, 642 challenge time… what a wonderful way to procrastinate about studying. I used to have a gorgeous, white, long haired, deaf cat, Gemma, who I’m sure spent her life judging me and my behaviours ( and I’m just sure hated me for a while after I moved in with a friend and his pet rabbit) so this one just jumped off the page at me. 642 Topic: You are a loser who lives alone with a cat and have done for quite some time. One day your cat can’t take it any more and starts talking. What does … Continue reading 642:6 Judgey Gemma
Howdy Toasters, Holla and cheer for the word of the day it’s totes time to shine, champagne shower, read away. There’s a word of the day that I use far too much It’s totes becoming a bit of a crutch It’s a word that portrays something huge in it’s meaning And said with some modern day tweaks intervening Fit for all purpose and easy to say Resistance is futile, embrace it okay Feeling befuddled, not sure what to do? I know how you feel, that’s totes fuds to you Drunk and disgraceful and lighting your fuse? That’s not how you … Continue reading A Toast to Totes!

Howdy Toasters! it’s creative writing time…. The topic “Write a scene that begins It was the first time i killed a man” and i’ve managed to unsettle myself with this one. Just before bed too… It was the first time I killed a man… Looking back I was so unprepared, so amateur, so… unpracticed. I made a hell of a mess that night. It was on the news the next day. To be honest I thought they’d show more of the scene, I was real sore they didn’t. All that work, all my work and all they did was … Continue reading 642: 3 The first time i killed a man
Howdy Toasters, 642 things to write about…. adventure #2 To buldge or not to buldge.. that is the question It’s a hard choice us boys have to face when it comes what we pack our fun loving fellas in. You have to be nice to them as you know.. right position, right temperature, right (or left) side, right colour, right style… and most importantly the right balance between looking like you’re packing a chunky lunchbox and obscenely outlining everything for all to see. Traditionally there’s the boxers or briefs debate. Should we be bundled in comfortable support with just that right amount … Continue reading 642: 2 boxers or briefs
