The Scatterings of a Brain

Categories: Writing

Current overwhelming obsession: The Geldingadalur Volcano in Iceland. Two new vents have confirmed to have opened this morning and it looks like the entire ridge that the fissure lies under is about to unzip. There was the drama of watching a pilot land a small aircraft on the field in front of one of the … Read More

Starting over?

Categories: Writing

Really? They say that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. But when you don’t know what else there is to do, you’re kind of stuck. So I’m going to try this daily writing thing again, but with a bit more structure and discipline built in to reinforce … Read More

Day Seven

Categories: Video

Yes, I know. This is twelve days since Day Six. I’ve been a little distracted though. I’ve been watching this volcano erupt live for the last week. Since the stream started on the 22nd. I even have it on the TV in our bedroom overnight. It’s not far from where I used to live in … Read More

Day Six

Categories: Writing

Again, so much for writing daily. My head is all over the place at the moment, the only thing that seems to keep it occupied for now is Dyson Sphere Program, and even then staying ‘on task’ while playing is hard work. Anything else and my mind seems to slide off it like it was … Read More

Day Five

So much for writing daily… This last week has been one of small revelations, minor epiphanies, and approaching decisions. Compromise is becoming a non-option.

Day Three

Categories: Writing

I’ve done this in the wrong order today. On my third coffee and WFH is done for today barring sending an email. At some point I’m going to unload a whole load about where I am and how I got here, but not today.

Day Two

Categories: Writing

More writing, nothing overly creative yet. Just building the habit for now. A couple of topics are likely to produce something at the moment, I just need to get back into the habit of writing anything, and there’s THE STORY just sitting there in my head, wanting told. Knowing where and how to start is … Read More

Day One

Categories: Writing

I’m going to try and start writing something every day. First thing, before I do anything else. This is the first. There will be more, and will have no set topic or predictable arc. just a morning stream of semi-conscious thought as the coffee kicks in. It may be about me, the world, politics, gaming, … Read More
