Multitasking

9 hours ago, for day 272 by Vlad Fratila

Capital sin of productivity, killer of ideas, destroyer of flow, a mistake I do every day without fail, bane of well-edited emails, eater of energy, and the list could go on. Multitasking is a thing I do, like an addiction. I do it every day, I'm even doing it right...


Out in space

5 days ago, for day 267 by Vlad Fratila

Reedsy prompt - Post-apocalyptic story Limitless void stretched out ahead, on a background of stars no one would ever reach. Jenny stared out the port view panel and let out a sigh. To them, Earth was the same now, one speck of light among millions; a star they would never...


Falka

1 week ago, for day 263 by Vlad Fratila

Long ago, in a land shrouded in the darkness of time, a girl named Falka led her people to rebellion. Cast away by her mad father, the King, she swore to take revenge, and revenge she took. Legends say that her whole family died by her hands. They called her...


Blockbusters

1 week ago, for day 262 by Vlad Fratila

I just finished playing a game with Spiderman. There's a new one coming out soon, and I thought I'd better finish the one from two years ago. It was quite a good story, had everything you'd expect to find from a blockbuster game or Hollywood movie: action, romance, spying, super-villains,...


Back to writing - writing goals

1 week ago, for day 259 by Vlad Fratila

I usually don't like it when I take a break from writing here, because it means that I'm not feeling well. I've had a bit of a rough weekend, with my family relations in shambles, accelerated by the whole stupid Covid situation. My sister and I are developing quite a...


Every day I have the blues

2 weeks ago, for day 256 by Vlad Fratila

Piano: Chicago blues, done badly Reading: almost ready to face the Demon King Exercise: biking Whenever life gets you down, it's good to know that there's always the blues. It might not do it for everyone, but for me its distraction enough. There's this website called PianoGroove.com which I've...


Looking forward to

2 weeks ago, for day 254 by Vlad Fratila

Exercise: blast it, I forgot! ):D Piano: Odd Ramblings. Work: slowly pulling me back in (make it stop!) Currently Reading: How to Defeat a Demon King in Ten Easy Steps I thought I'd review some of the media-related stuff I'm looking forward to. There are quite a lot of good...


Silence, for a moment

1 month ago, for day 239 by Vlad Fratila

As I lay in bed, I realize it is the first time today that I've relaxed. I cozy up, all but ready to fall asleep. I hear the cat prancing about in her usual pre-bedtime routine. There is silence, for just a moment. And then It hits me: I forgot...


Writing vs. working on writing

1 month ago, for day 234 by Vlad Fratila

It's been roughly a month since I've re-started writing here. I broke my streak a few times, but I've managed to get back into it much easier than before. Ultimately, I think this exercise is about flexing certain muscles in your brain, the kind that stop any attempt at creativity...


Zzz

1 month ago, for day 222 by Vlad Fratila

What are the major signs of burnout? I'm pretty sure the most telling one is the need to sleep. It won't settle in if it's not permitted though, so it may not be the first thing you notice. But if you stop for just one moment, it may be enough...
