Creative Projects Frighten Me

I love starting new creative projects. My success rate is good but it’s not 100%, which can get very frustrating. But the reason for that isn’t because I lose motivation. Most of the time, it’s because I’m scared.

June 2016 Goals

When I woke up this morning, it took me a few moments to realize it was June 1. Already.

So I wanted to take some time to think about the different things that I want to complete this month.

But even as I said that, I realize that I will be gone for two weeks this month, to Mission Camp. But I can still do things during those two weeks, so I’m not discounting this month from productivity.

Here are a few things I’d like to complete this month. On July 1, we’ll look back on the month and see how far I came.

Writing For Video Games

**Spoiler Alert** – The title is a misnomer. This post has very little to do with anything, much less Video Games.

I guess I wanted to have something to write everyday. And maybe I will, when I do this more often. Maybe this is just to get me in the habit of writing something, even if it’s nothing.

Top 4 “Once Upon A Time” Episodes

[fusion_text]ouat-cover-01I’ve been watching Once Upon a Time for a really long time now.

To be honest, I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.

It was one of the very few relatively okay things to watch back in 2013, and we’ve kinda been following it around for the past few years.

I’ve watched as the show took turns for the worst, seen it recover for a while, only to fall into what-on-earth-did-I-just-watch horrible.

(I’m wasting a lot of time right now looking for a clip of Cruella slinking away in the Underworld diner – because that wasn’t horrible, THAT was awesome. )

But for all that I don’t like about where OUAT has gone, either now or in the past, there are a few episodes from each season that will always stand out to me.

Read on for my top 4 Once Upon a Time episodes:

(Oh, and I found the Cruella clip. You’re welcome. )

3 Characters I’d Like to Meet

[fusion_text]I love stories, but it’s the characters that make them so great.

There are so many characters that I love, for whole host of reasons.

But there are a few characters that, while not my favorite, really stick out to me.

And if they were real, I’d totally want to meet them – even if one of them would probably try to kill me.
