I tried...I really did; to get on here yesterday and complete my blog, but it was not happening. My body said, 'nope, not feeling well', and all bets were off. But, okay, I can live with that.
I did work on my next assignment today, it was tough, but I did it. I was going to keep upping the time on these exercises, but I'm at a place now where I'm actually spending longer on each image, which is good. My initial idea behind these exercises was to get me to sit down and write, even if only for 10-20 minutes, and I've accomplished that.
I'm going to continue with these exercises, cuz they are awesome to force creative thinking, but I'm going to do one every 2nd day as opposed to every day, and on the alternate days I plan to work on my books. I'm so very pleased at how fast the desire to write kicked in. This worked even better than I anticipated.
Because I'm still not feeling 100%, I did struggle with this exercise, but I was determined! So, let's pop into my head and see what we find:
The looking glass does not lie. A slave to perfection, the diamond chains that bind, cut deeply into flesh where no one sees. Pain and fear delve so deeply that it manifests itself into a beast of its own. Obsession rewrites all rational thinking, feeding and nurturing the beast. Vanity is prevalent and empathy withers and dies. Beauty becomes a shallow facade, with barren ugliness scratching violently beneath the surface. Time, a vulgar enemy, eagerly awaits its snide revenge against those who would mock it. A battle that is infinitely futile brings about a forced surrender that lays open the soul. Relish in the day where beauty enjoys free reign, for this time is foretold, and the end is far too near.
I don't know about you, but I'm seein' a pattern here...I lean heavily to the dark side (they have cookies...it's an incentive =D ). Which explains why I'm drawn to mystery, suspense, even horror genres.
Tomorrow, I work on some edits a friend of mine did on Sleep my Pretty.
