MAY THE 4TH BE WITH YOU PART 1- HAPPY STAR WARS DAY AND LOOK OUT FOR DEWIE THE WOOKIE AT WIDNES COMIC CON!

It was sad to hear of the passing of Peter Mayhew last week. The Man behind Chewbacca the Wookie was indeed a gentle giant. I have had a Chewbacca toy/doll for ages and gave it a shower last weekend, in preparation for Widnes CC 2 today, but instead of it being Chewie, it’ll be his cousin Dewie that’s been shrunk by the Empire and needs a hug! He did have a Bounty on him, but got peckish, so eat it.

I’ve also got new socks with the Star Wars logo on. Just thought I’d share that too.

Birthday Blog- Couldn’t organise a riot in a Tea bag? Really?!

45Made an innocuous comment in the Nanowrimo Writing group last night on Facebook, a bit facetiously, but it’s got me thinking- how organised am I?

It was to do with Camp Nano, a monthly challenge I’ve never actually had the time to do. So I said I couldn’t do it because I couldn’t organise a riot in a T-Bag.

I am a bit more organised than that, but my problem is I’m easily distracted, I lose focus, don’t prioritise and then give up. I’m a juggling Octopus, but end up dropping several balls at once. Good job I can’t juggle firesticks then, ‘cos the whole tent would be up in flames!

Disturbing Circus imagery aside, I do get stuck in a creative rut quite a lot. That happened with Grey Dominion last weekend. I gave up and watched Bill and Ted and Westworld, which inspired a new trailer for GD, so am slowly putting that together. It’s taken me nearly a week to move forward with it, but that’s the way I work, slowly and methodically- don’t rush me, like the Tortoise said to the Hare.

Anyway, made myself a Birthday cup of Tea, gonna stir it round, squeeze it a bit, see if I can get a riot started.

Anything can happen- it’s Anything can happen Thursday!

 

PS- The T-bag got wet, squished and lumpy. Guess that went well then! What a way to start Year 45 of life!

 

 

Innovative Ian’s Dilemmas- getting stuck in a rut and trying to get out again.

I want to break free. Yes it’s an awesome Queen song, but sums up my life, as does the cover of my new-ish notebook. “Too many ideas, not enough time” it says. Yep, that about sums up my life at the mo, doing a bit of lunch cover til the Easter Hols, getting an early train instead of the later bus helps, but not much. I definitely need a change in direction!001.JPG

at some point I will be updating everything. IW has some nifty developments, Grey Dominion the same and I’m working on reviews/hiking and event updates too!

So, too many ideas and not enough time! Sums up everything at the moment, so let’s crack on with it shall we? YAY!

Xmas Blogathon 2018/2019- A Midwinter challenge

Xmas Blogathon 2018/2019- A Midwinter challenge

In the bleak mid-winter- we’re off to the Blogging Olympics!

 

I didn’t complete Nano again, made a lukewarm half-hearted attempt, but after four years of trying, it’s still not happening. Yes, I tried adapting Tiglet’s Time Travels, expanding 17k words into 50k, but with multiple viewpoints/styles it’s an exercise in mind-bending discombobulation of the First-kind, or should that be Third-kind? Dunno, Anyway, with 27 more posts to go before 800, I’m going to have a little Blogathon, just like in 2012 after the Olympics. That was epic- trying to find something to write about every day. I’ve got two dozen things I’ve started, so maybe it’s about time a few got finished.

There are book reviews, Doctor Who and Star Wars-related posts and a few other things.

So here we go- Counting down to the 800th Post.

Hold on tight now!
