Hopefully, as a progressive, we have pushed enough to get the apricot and his crooked cronies under investigation. Time to turn my thoughts back to writing, even if I do have to go back to full-time activism again. My side eye is still on the apricot in chief. I am still a tweeter!
I have been working hard on finding the origin of my dragons. It’s been exciting to have dragons join in my magical mashup world. I keep trying to incorporate my thoughts about the political climate into my story line. I also realize also that I don’t have to. I don’t want my bad guy to be evil. I may have to, though. Or the evil was wrought by abuse. I think that is probably true in some cases and then not in other. Take Dahmer, his evil was that he loved without ever learning how. That’s really messed up.
I have also been stealing time to write, and find I still don’t do it as much as I need to. I question my desire to write everyday, but still keep doing it. I also tend to read too many news stories about current events. I fall victim to sucking it all in without spitting it all back out. I am pretty sure that can leave a black mark on your soul. I wonder if my opinion matters as I form it. I know there are lots of opinions out there and wonder why in the world I need to add mine to the cacophony.
Suffice it to say, I can’t help it. I want to. That is the only reason I have. Like a child, too innocent to see and believe it doesn’t matter, and too selfish to care if it matters or not, I write.
