Writing, Comics, Dreams, and the Usual.

10:15 a.m. So, I had this dream last night. It began when I went to the park to lay a giant frog egg at a creek and then the next day, I go back to get it.

As I'm walking the highway, I'm seeing multiple frogs. Some even jump at me, but unlike normal cases, I don't run away and scream. Rob was there, too.

When I got home, Donny and Rick have pulled into the yard and I consider getting a ride from one of them. Donny tells me what he knows about frog eggs. Most of this is unimportant compared to the rest of the dream.

I get the ride that I want, but Mara Lane and Jonathan Rhys Meyers are also tagging along in the front cab of the truck. I'm off at the window, mostly minding my business, while Mara gently pleading her case about wanting to start a family and about him not being ready. Note they are never arguing, just gently talking about it. Super sweet.

I think at one point she asked me about how I feel sometimes and I described it as being like a 'deflated tire.' She repeated me a moment and smiled widely. She made a similar reference I think.

Then her and I started chatting about God knows what. lol.

Just before we pull up to my Mom's house, I ask her to take a 'selfie...erm...picture with me.' This is hilarious because normally it's JRM I'm asking in my dreams, but this time I was only concerned about asking her. Love that woman, she's awesome and I've been made a fan.

Annyyywayy, she happily agrees to it and we pull up to my Mom's yard. We get out and try to take the photo. In the first one, her head covers half my face...if not all of it. Then in another, I'm worrying about the rotted part of my tooth. In another, I'm basically inflated into some fun house mirror version of myself which looked ridiculous altogether.

I'm not sure if we ever got the perfect photo.

By then, the 'Jonny girls' fan girls, were outside waiting for their turn. Jonny has just disappeared from this dream altogether.

I 'woke up' or I thought I did, and tried to choose between scrawling this dream in this blank journal with some 'yearbook' style message in the back or the new compostion notebook I recently bought. I chose the notebook and just sat their scrawling in low light...since for some reason the blinds in my room were drawn. At this point, I'm totally thinking I'm 100 percent awake. I almost finished,

Then my mind slowly pulls me into reality and I'm still lying in bed with my eyes closed. So then I roll over and actually write the dream down.

Then I woke to find april gone, and I hijacked the computer for social networking, neopets, and surfing Tumblr for SPN GIFS of last night's episode. Turns out April was weed-wacking and would like her computer back now.

Still have to update my journal and organize the photos on my computer one of these days.

God Bless, Jesus Loves, Lives, Saved! All Glory, Praise, Thanks, and all things be to God on the Highest forever and ever in Jesus Name, Amen! God is Able!

10:40 a.m. Enjoying pasta leftovers and tea. April is enjoying her computer. And firefox updated, and cleared my cookies at the same time....



11:13 a.m. I came, ate, and super happy. Glad April is enjoying her whiteboard..I know she really wanted one and I was happy to help set it up. Having that 'do-gooder feels awesome' feeling going on.

Really wanting to start writing again. It's not even writers block this time. I KNOW what I want to happen next. Sauvignon walks up to Dream Doctor's castle and sees a view of Farsouth, land of the Deceivers. Then she goes in sees the Living Map of Illusionate on the ceiling and chats with Brian.

A good walk with some music, the Lord be with me, should help further the plot and grant ideas. Need motivation, too, in Jesus Name, Amen!

11:45 a.m. Hey! It worked! So onward, forward right? At first, I was focused on my OCs instead of anything that had to do with the novel. Just when I was about to end my walk, the ideas started up.
God has great plans in store for my life. Praise and thank Him on high forever and ever in Jesus Name, Amen! God works above all I ask or think. Hallelujah!

12:24 p.m. I've been story mapping chapters 13-14. There was one part I found hilarious though.

12:43 p.m. I couldn't get over the above stuff. Spammed my social networks with it and had to also find a a way to quickly recharge April's dying smartphone. Pluh. When will I write now that the mapping is done? P.S. Thinking of sketching my OC's so much that I'm thinking of drawing them...and even turning them into a children's book.


Perhaps I could start with a blog first. I don't know where to begin because I've developed their backstories for so long that even I don't remember where it began. I suppose they can be just like comics though.

2:22 p.m. I added more to the story, which went well. It still has to undergo a massive editing process.

2:32 p.m. I think I need to take a break and eat something. Oi.

2:59 p.m. Watching a Netflix documentary about two famous conjoined twins called 'Bound By Flesh.'

4:34 p.m. I finished the documentary. It was very sad and moving but right now I need a nap. God Bless, Jesus Loves, Lives, Saves! All Glory, Praise, Thanks and all things be to God on the Highest forever and ever in Jesus Name, Amen! God is Able!

5:53 p.m. I tried to nap but the urge to try a comic got me so hard that I did it. More later. Dinner time!

6:32 p.n. I had dinner. Time to present the comic:

Let me present my two characters, Jinny and Jynny (names have been change in spelling to tell the difference between the two) who I have been building almost daily in my head for the past several years. This is just one small moment out of countless that have occurred during my times of personal entertainment:

Jinny: Okay, Jynny. This is our comic debut so try to make it funny.




Jynny: Ahhhhhhhhh....
Jinny: What are you doing? Calm down.

 
 Jinny: Ughhhh.....

Jinny tends to faint, like, a lot. It's his thing.





8:19 p.m. Finished watching The Core again...I was in the mood. I have finished editing Chapter Thirteen and it's up on the blog..for now. I'm ready to move on to fourteen after the struggles of the previous chapter. I even have some of the story mapped out so I can't wait to see how this turns out.God Bless, Jesus Loves, Lives, Saves! All Glory, Praise, Thanks, and all things be to God on the Highest forever and ever in Jesus Name, Amen! God is Able!

9:08 p.m. Oi. Done editing..cleaned up in case I'll be ready for bed soon. 

10:27 p.m. Spent the past hour or more editing Chapter Thirteen..the first half. Worth it! God is Able! 24 Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life. John 5:24

11:43 p.m. MORE editing...and some work on the official FB page but I assure you..it's fine now.
