I want to write but I’m so discouraged now because of what happened earlier and the fact that the stuff I want to be working on is on my external hard drive which is not here right now and I’m not even sure if I can access the stuff at this point anyway and I’m letting my discouragement and stupid emotions get the best of me like I always do and ugh oisadsalfdkoaifsdsalf.
I was writing about gay vampires.
Although I would like to finish this story. But I don’t think I can now.

And now I’m off to write more of my detective story, that I need a title for. If anyone would like to brainstorm a title with me, message me and I can give you the details of what it’s about.
But I might end up waiting until I’m done, I dunno. Haha. Help?
RANDOM THOUGHT: GET OUTTA THE READING BOX
I am currently downloading and listening to songs that were popular in 1976 to listen to while writing my story. And I pretty much know all of them because of my parents. Yup.
#203 Because my characters and stories are something that I have control over, and that no one can take away from me.

I’m finally #writing again! And it’s actually coherent and fluid thought. #personal #proud (Taken with instagram)
Because right now I can’t open any of my writing that I’ve been working on for years. And I tried to use Zamzar to convert the files and it’s worked for my smaller ones. But it doesn’t work with my larger files because they want you to pay for it in order to do so. Which really pisses me off. What I need to do is find a computer that has Microsoft Works on it so that I can plug my external hard drive into it and then copy and paste them into my Google Docs. Even though that would be time consuming. It would be worth it. But I don’t know who has Microsoft Works anywhere near me. Ugh. This is just really frustrating. I’m starting to get excited about writing again but it’s discouraging when I can’t open any of my other work.
On a brighter note I downloaded OmmWriter and a trial version of Scrivener and I really like both so far. I’m still exploring Scrivener but so far I like it and I plan to actually buy it when I get the money.
Can you guys tell I’ve had writing on the brain today?
