I regret bitching about mocks.
Embarrassing to admit, but it's true. Now that we've been thrown head first back to school, drowned once again in the cold monotony of routine, I'm wondering why the hell I ever thought that lessons were easier than exams.
I want to wear no uniform again. I want to lie in every morning till 11am. I want to drink hot chocolate until I freaking burst
and hog the toastie machine for lunch. I want gcse study leave goddammit!!
Anyway, if you're a regular reader of this little blogathon (which you're not) then you may be wondering why I bring this up. In fact, you may even be wondering why I'm actually posting
for once instead of taking every available opportunity to brag about my new twitter youtube myspace omfg add me now PLZ!!!11!one!!
Hahaha but no seriously, the only reason I'm posting right now is because I read a rather interesting article on 10 Things Teenage Writers Should Know
and was inspired. Mostly because the guy who wrote it (who isn't just a failed author, he has genuinely been published ... I think) said that right now my writing sucks, and there is nothing I can do about it. However, there is hope; and if I try to write in some bloggy or creative fashion every day, then I can speed up this process.
So I suppose this means that from now on I may actually have to have some sort of a structure
(a foreign concept to me) to my blogs. They must not simply be meaningless rants. They must have meaning.
Bearing this in mind, here are a few topics I hope I can cover soooonn in these blogathons:
- metaphors and their irrelevance
- reviews (or not so much reviews, because they're boring -- more like fun thoughts) of arty things I've seen/read
- real music taste and why you need
to get your arses in gear and download these artists asap!
- a short essay on how much I hate vaseline
... And that just about covers it. exciting, I know.
On a lighter note, this new enthusiasm basically means that you'll be hearing a lot more from me over the coming few months, as work piles up and music practice refuses to go away. It's also exciting for me in that I'll be able to see my theoretical progress with the way I write and the crap I write.
Take care all :)
