My Resolutions Day 303

Tuesday 21 November 2017

I didn’t sleep last night. I wasn’t feeling too well and lied in bed until 18:00. I am feeling tired so I hope I can sleep tonight.

I am going to pick out a game and play it tonight. I haven’t been on a game in a few days and the only game I’ve played in the past ten-ish times I’ve played one is Shadow Of War.

I’ve written a little more on a short story. The short horror novella is laid out for the most part and I’m researching the time period. While I research I’m going to work on a few other short stories and poems. I think I might be able to finish a rough copy of a short story by the end of the week and maybe even finish it at the end of the month.

My OCD is being kept under control. It’s the most I’ve felt in control over it in a long time. I don’t constantly have to re-write a sentence over and over and I don’t find myself re-locking doors lately.

My Resolutions Day 302

Monday 20 November 2017

I woke up around 15:00 today.

I tried to get up early but I didn’t set my alarm.

I managed to write a little more of a poem, I am on my way to managing to finish it within my deadline.

I might have a look at my PC games and see if I can find some short games I can play tonight.

I managed to get out and take a walk for the first time in a while. It wasn’t too bad but still painful.

My Resolutions Day 301

Sunday 19 November 2017

I woke up around 14:00 today.

I’m going to try and get an early-ish night tonight so I can try and wake up sometime around 08:00.

I’ve not done much today, plan on continuing to write a poem after I post this. I’m going to aim to finish at least one poem by the end of next week. I never seem to meet deadlines with my writing so I probably won’t make it by the end of next week, but I’ll try.

I’ve not got much else to talk about today; it’s been a boring day so far.

My Resolutions Day 300

Saturday 18 November 2017

I woke up around 15:00 today.

I’ve been thinking about my short horror story and the research I’ve been doing around the years it’s set in. I’ve planned for it to be around the 1890’s to 1900, depending on what the research says about things of the time. Such as forensic science, mainly when photos were used. I’ve been seeing the type of money used, how much things are, trains, etc. It’s harder to get a definite answer when I find several things that contradict each other. Were photos taken of crime scenes back then? I found that in some crimes like Jack the Ripper, a few photos of his victims were taken, however, not a lot of knowledge on if only big crime scenes had pictures taken, if only cities used it, if a majority of crime scenes had pictures taken.

I’m going to see Justice League in a few minutes, so it’s an early-ish post as I might not be back until 11:30 when it’ll have to be written within half an hour.

My Resolutions Day 299

Friday 17 November 2017

I woke up around 13:00 today.

I’ve been thinking about new games I can play, seeing if I can get into games that I haven’t completed or played before. I completed Infamous and went on and completed Infamous 2 a month or so ago. It got me thinking about what other games I’ve missed out on, I’ve heard many good things about certain games that I have or can pick up cheaply.

I managed to plan out some finer details of the short horror novella. You can read the rough opening to it that was posted in yesterdays post here.

My OCD hasn’t been annoying me lately when writing. I think it’s going well. Only a few times have I had it get to the point where it stopped me doing something the past month.

My Resolutions Day 298

Thursday 16 November 2017

I woke up around 13:00 today.

I completed Shadow Of War. Was it worth it? I don’t know; the ending is good, but after what must have been about 10 hours of trying to get it, I wonder why I didn’t just watch the ending on YouTube.

I wrote a little again today, I wrote out a rough beginning for the short horror novella. I’m going to post it underneath here, as it’s not that long. Any feedback is appreciated, thanks and I hope you enjoy.

Story

Humans have a unique ability to turn what they don’t understand into fantastic myths and legends. Once it was believed that a variety of gods existed for a myriad of reasons; a god or goddess for thunder and lightning, death and life, for the Sun, Moon, planets and stars; each deity assigned a role to play.

Scientific development has afforded us with a greater understanding of our world and beyond and has allowed us to take control and even use what was once thought the domain of divinity.

The Greek’s believed in Zeus, the king of the gods and sky, master of thunder and lightning. When we looked up to the sky and saw the lightning rain down; we thought it the work of gods. When the earth shook beneath our feet; we thought it the work of gods. When volcanoes spew forth their ash and fire; we thought it the work of gods.

In a similar and more sinister vein, the power of imagination still rests within our fear. When what you see within the shadows of night, out of the corner of your eye, the haunting of a sound you can’t describe or pin; it is fear that turns them into horrific things. That fear of the unknown which causes your mind to race, to conjure up grim images of monsters. When fear is involved, no longer is it the work of deities but of devils and demons.

It is my hope that by writing down what I experienced, I can come to an understanding as to what I experienced within the small English town of Shyell.

My Resolutions Day 297

Wednesday 15 November 2017

I woke up at 13:00 today. I couldn’t sleep until around 06:00 so while I did get seven hours sleep, I couldn’t sleep early. I hope it’s easier to get back into a different sleeping pattern since I’ve done it.

I went on Shadow Of War again and have managed to get to stage nine of the shadow wars. I have to defend three fortresses and then the next stage I have to defend all four fortresses. After that, I get the true ending. It’s a slog, it’s boring having to watch the orcs fight in the fighting pits, I wish they’d replace it with a skip button so if I don’t want to have to watch them, I can just get the results and get to defending the fortress.

I managed to write a little last night, I posted a sample of it in another post today which is here: Short Horror Sample. I hope to write a little more tonight, maybe finish a poem.

I don’t know what I’ll be doing after posting this and writing, I might go back on Shadow Of War but I might just watch a movie. I do have some games on my PC I haven’t played, maybe I’ll have a look at them.

My Resolutions Day 296

Tuesday 14 November 2017

I woke up at 15:00 today. I didn’t sleep until 10:00, so I got about five hours sleep.

I went back on Shadow Of War, I looked up how many Shadow Wars there are, I thought they might go on forever. They have 10 stages and I’m on stage seven. It’s boring to sit through the fighting pits but I just stick my strongest fighters against the weakest ones and they level up three to five levels each fight and they are over quite fast.

I am thinking of posting a small segment of my short horror novella here. If I can get a little bit written out tonight I’ll post it tomorrow. I am trying to write but I can’t seem to sit down to do it, I either feel too much pain or depressed. I need to get some writing done even if I don’t feel too motivated to do it.

I’m going to see if after I try to write if I can sleep early tonight so I can get up in the morning.

My OCD has really calmed down in the past few days. It might be that I am depressed or my medication or something else. I’m glad it is at the level it’s at right now and I hope it stays that way.

My Resolutions Day 295

Monday 13 November 2017

I woke up at 12:00 today.

I didn’t do much again today and I doubt I will until I’m out of pain. I take painkillers and just lie in bed or if I can, sit in my chair so I can use my desktop.

I have planned out a little more of a story and hope to plan it all out fully by the end of the week.

I will probably either try to write out some posts or play a few PC games tonight.

My Resolutions Day 294

Sunday 12 November 2017

I woke up at 14:30 today. I didn’t have a great night sleep.

I’m in pain still, so I’m going to down a lot of painkillers and just watch some videos or a movie.

I spent most of the day watching a few episodes of anime, like King’s Game, which is all right, and Dragon Ball Super, which is also all right. I played on Shadow Of War for a few hours, I’m on the fourth part of the Shadow Wars and it’s getting boring. Defending fortresses isn’t too bad, but having to level up your captains in the fighting pits isn’t too fun. You have to watch your captain fight and it’s a maximum of three minutes, after the first few times, watching it is boring, it would be better to just offer the option to skip the fight to its conclusion. I might not bother to go back on it anymore.

I don’t know if I’ll write tonight but I hope so.

I don’t know what I’ll be doing for the rest of the week if I’m still in pain.
