I may have mentioned demons before this post. I don’t believe in such things in a literal sense, but they are a decent metaphor for the challenges we all face.
Lately I have bee faring well in my struggles, except for my slothfulness in getting more words down. I feel like my mind is often contrary to what I know I want to do. I think this could be because I fill my head with other voices constantly.
From podcasts to music to the occasional television show or videogame, I get distracted from my inner world.
And I need that inner world to work. Now that I’ve listened to my favorite new podcasts for the week I’m going to try to listen to less of everything for a while at least.
I think this may help me think more about my worlds, my characters, and their voices. Hopefully I’ll be able to let you know how it works.
Have a good day! Don’t let the demons get you down.
