I had the notion that I didn’t want to put too much non-fiction in my blog and I really didn’t intend for as much poetry that I have either; it was supposed to be focusing on little snippets of practise writing and short stories of a fantasy theme only, well since the blog has started that hasn’t been the case has it? So, I decided last night that it doesn’t matter what I post on my blog anymore, people love it for what it is and therefore there will be more posts coming in the future; particularly of new and different from current themes. I have many interests in life other than writing and some of those things include writing, but they are usually personal snippets or parts of my personal diaries, thoughts, hopes and dream journals and that sort of thing.
So the blog may become a more active place that will include themes of positivity, spirituality, dreams, research papers and so forth. A lot of the research papers will include mythologies from around the world and superstitions, as well as historical research.
Other than writing, my other hobbies include watercolour painting, wildlife photography, and organic/no-dig gardening (on good days), puzzles, word games, hypothetical discussions with people, reading, knitting, cosmic ordering and studying cultures, superstitions, mythologies and personal genealogy. I also love learning languages and how they developed, the history of certain words and allergen free lifestyles.
So the future of this blog could be random, who knows? But I have decided to write whatever I fancy and share it, because I want to be a more active writer that actually proves I really am an active writer!
I keep a lot of stuff I write to myself. Little snippets about a person enjoying an apple, or peacefully sewing fat quarters to make a quilt, or sitting in a meadow watching clouds fly by; to things I have watched on television and have an opinion about, books I have read and how I felt about them and simple little daydreams of things I would love to do, but realistically may never do. I have often thought about writing a book purely based on my daydreaming adventures and I did call this idea “The wandering in my mind” book. But I have thought, the wandering in my mind could become blog posts called “The Wandering in my mind adventures part 1” and so on. This idea is not a new one, I have had it since I was a teenager and it is not wholly new on this blog either. I just didn’t take it as seriously for online media as much as I do now.
So yes, I think I will start that today. The wandering in my mind adventures part one will be posted later on this evening.
I must warn you, it is always random and there are thousands of situations and people I imagine most of the time. Living such an isolated life, sometimes the only way I can feel alive is by deep and long daydreaming sessions.
A sample of what you can expect would be…
Me mingling with vampires at a palace court, usually the same characters as I have built a sort of relationship with them in my mind.
Me wandering through various landscapes and coming across various wonderful plants and animals or situations;
Floating through space and seeing amazing things there.
Arguing with people about certain subjects and giving my side of the argument in full – these are fictional arguments that usually have a real life basis to them, such as climate change, current affairs, certain things going on worldwide, but there will always be a fantasy or horror twist to these daydreams. For example, a few months ago, I personally demanded that the universe repairs Notre Dame immediately and proclaim a miracle, because it was a place I always wanted to see and the story of the Hunchback of Notre Dame always made me cry; particularly now he is homeless in my mind and all those poor little gargoyles.
I also travel in time arguing with Henry the VIII about various things and personally beating ten bells out of the Emperor Nero for what he did to Poppaea.
In other daydreams I am a whole new character in other writer’s books, where I am the personal pet owner of a Bandersnatch and a tyrannical next door neighbour to the Queen of Hearts, whilst eating jam sandwiches with the Duchess in the veranda of my garden, shouting insults over the rose bushes that divide our lands.
As I said the other day, it is scary in my mind.
