Transitions are Hard

I posted the the third chapter of Trip on This over at my fiction writing blog. You can read it here. As I’m focusing more on my fiction, I find I have less desire to blog. It’s not that I don’t still have strong opinions–I do. It’s not that I’m not writing blog posts in my head–I am. It’s just that I don’t see the point. I’m but a tiny voice shouting in a vast ocean. Yes, I’m feeling hopeless at the moment–and burnt out.

In addition, I have an idea I’ve been toying with for a while, but I haven’t actually done it (story of my life): live-tweeting bad movies. I do it on occasion, and people really seem to enjoy it. The last time I did it, it was to the RiffTrax version of Stone Cold, a hilariously bad cop movie with Brian Bosworth, and they actually followed me because of it. Unfortunately, they don’t any longer, which is a shame. Maybe if I do another of their movies, they’ll follow me again. Know hope!

Anyway, I’ve been kicking it around in my brain for several months, and I’ve decided that since I’m changing everything up with my blogs right now, anyway, it would be a good time to start. I’ve decided on Monday because Movie Mondays is alliterative, which is appealing to me. I’ll take this week to figure out the logistics, and then we’ll start next Monday. I want to put this out there so I’ll be more apt to actually follow through. As I get more established, I’ll start asking for suggestions. For now, I’ll stick to movies that appeal to me. So, grab some popcorn and watch along; I’ll make sure to link the movies in the posts.

Here’s a claymation short from Mazzy. She always makes me smile.
