1. Lack of interest, enthusiasm or concern.
Well, I sit here staring at the screen thinking, 'I'm screwed. Yep. Definitely screwed.' even though I've got this far, that is, sat in front of the PC and typing on day 1 of the A-Z, I still think I'm screwed.
Apathy. Interesting concept. I agree with all of the above descriptors, and I lay blame (without a shred of guilt I might add) at the feet of my current 'job'. finishing at 2015hrs each evening is a real deal breaker when it comes to sitting down and pounding out something creative in any format after I've driven home, changed, washed, eaten and chilled.
But hey, I'm being a baby about this. I'm going to crack the proverbial whip and MAKE myself do this. I can't say it's going to be good. I won't promise that it will be inspiring. I don't hold out hope of it even being entertaining. But one thing I am hoping for is improvement. Look at it this way: we're at basement level right now--which is today--and the lift/elevator doors have just begun to close. Along the way I hope to reach every floor, all the way to the mighty (and hated) 'Z'. but be warned; I have no clue as to what horrors we might face on each of the coming floors.
So be prepared for ANYTHING... even zombies ;) - and if that doesn't keep you happy, then bugger off!
I merely jest.
When I signed up for this year I thought, 'great, games', then I reconsidered and imagined the dull, listless reactions I'd get from the non-gamers out there (which is pretty much ALL OF YOU! *heathens*), so I switched to 'writing'. Yay! No. No 'yay' involved at all, just my mind tutting at me and saying, ' Now that wasn't very smart of you, was it now? '. To that I reply with a single digit. but yes, I think it's going to be a deal-breaker.
So hang in there, join me on the lift/elevator ride into the hell I call my mind, and forgive any and all crap along the way - I've not been writing for a while you see.
Good luck to you all as we peer myopically towards that distant, foggy horizon called Z.
PS: bring your weapon of choice, there just might be the odd zombie or two... really.
