From Here

It’s a beautiful day outside here in Watauga.  Actually, I haven’t been outside yet but from this desk chair it looks really bright and green and cool out there.  I woke up about 2:30 this afternoon and I slept great.  The Texas Rangers won the first round of the Playoffs last night for (I think) the first time in franchise history.  Now, I’m not a very good baseball fan but even I know that this was an AWESOME feat for the Rangers.

My own personal memories of the Rangers include going to watch them lose all through my childhood.  I remember eating nachos in the cheap seats at the old Rangers Stadium and I think they lost every game I ever went to so I was never a huge fan (but I know more than a few of them).  I’m still extremely happy for them right now and it’s a HUGE deal around these parts.


I’ve got a story I’m trying to write from a dream I had the other day.  I was in this room in the dream and it was so cool.  I want to set a story partially in this room.  Actually, it was a house.  3 stories.  Don’t wanna say too much more.  I’m wondering if I can draw a blueprint from my memory of the dream.  It’s surprisingly clear in my head, which isn’t very normal.

I have a strong desire to write stories but I have a hard time figuring out how to translate them onto paper.  I’m not sure if my brain works that way.  But I’m experimenting with different methods.  I’ve got some index cards and everything.  I don’t know what all is gonna happen in this story, I just want it to be awesome.  I’m envisioning it as a new hit movie that Rotten Tomatoes is going crazy over. I’m imagining myself not knowing much about it and it’s a Friday night and I’m sitting in a packed out theater with a big tub of popcorn and a big Dr. Pepper (not Mr. Pibb).  I’ve gotten through the credits and now the camera is slowly panning through my dream house.  We’re coming in slow on the back of a chair and somebody is sitting at a desk…. doing something….

This is the part where I’m at and I’m trying to figure out what’s gonna happen next.  I’ve got some ideas.  I know whoever he is could effect the whole rest of the movie so I don’t wanna say it too much.  My only requirement is that this movie be awesome.  I don’t know if I care what happens between here and the end.

Anyway, that’s my predicament this afternoon.
