I Have Seen The Future

Now, if I just had a time machine so I could get to a point where I’d actually finished writing something…

I watched Primer last night (I’d been meaning to watch it for a long time). I’ve been watching Terminator all season. I’ve known for a while that I’m a sucker for time travel.

I haven’t quote*unquote written anything for a while. But, I realized that I was putting too much pressure on myself to get it done while also having (or creating for myself) a significant amount of pressure at work. But I’ve finally recovered from that, and have gotten to the point where I am ready to start writing again. This time, I’m not going to pressure myself with word counts or anything like that though, since clearly that didn’t work for me.

So, I’m revising the outline of a project that I’d started on with the intention of adding time travel elements (easier than it sounds, actually, now that I look at it) to make it more interesting to my unconscious mind. Hopefully, by making it align (even more) closely to something that I’d be interested in reading, I’ll keep myself interested in writing it.

I’ve also rearranged my Netflix queue so I’ll get some good time travel movies that I’ve been meaning to watch for a while anyway. I also want to get some good scifi books about time travel, but I’ve got so much other stuff to read anyway, that I’m not going to dive into that just yet.
