Blog entry for April 20th, 2021. There is no marijuana in this post. I don’t have the kind of money to have some for everyone. Plus, it doesn’t really help my creativity.

April 20, 2021

For some odd reason…well not that odd.  Due to my ADHD, My brain doesn’t seem to want to be creative unless I am doing something else.  If I have a large amount of spare time with nothing to do, my brain goes inactive.  Sometimes if I watch or read something I’ve seen before, it can get me started.  However, it doesn’t last very long and if it’s something I really like, it can take over everything and I’ll find I haven’t done one damn thing. 

So today, I watched an anime I have seen 4 times previously and it seems to have helped a little.  I’m starting to organize how to set up this website as well as figure out what to make for it.  I’ve got five stories started, one of which is on it’s third draft.  A photography session I would like to do is to photograph a residential street in Chicago that is close to the loop.  This will be my first attempt at bringing the general world I’ve created to life.  According to the weather reports (my weather bug app), its supposed to be warm next week.  So I will plan on taking the train on one of my days off to go take pictures.  Bonus, it is currently the time of year from the story the pictures will be based on.

I want to do more than just this writing blog.  I would like to be on camera and do video blogs and streaming as well.  One idea is to practice drawing while streaming and let people talk to me while I do it.  I have also started doing a personal video journal.  At some point in the next few weeks or months, I’ll cross over and start posting them to tik tok, Youtube, or something. 

The plan is to keep making…anything and getting my brain into the mode of creation instead of just consuming entertainment.  It is now time for me to start doing. 

Type ya later,
