Hey, You Got a Second?: A Series of Random Chats – Wednesday, my dudes

Sorry it’s not Monday?

this gif is a recent favorite

How are you this fine Wednesday? Ok? That’s good at least, it’s not a bad place to be at in the middle of the week. You still have the option to go either way, how nice! You know what’s not nice? Not posting on my regular scheduled day. I’m sorry about that. This past week was busier than usual in my headspace and I struggled to find something to chat about. It happens to the best of us, no need to read into it. Anyway, today I have something fun to share with you all. It’ll be a relatively shorter post than the ones prior, but not without substance. Let’s hope I didn’t create a chip bag situation. So, if you have a second, let’s get to it.

Hey, that’s a fun story

Let’s hope so. What I’m about to share with you is a short story I created a few years back that is one of my favorites. What I found fun about it is that I created it using a song as the guiding force. What do I mean by that? Well, I listened to this song on loop until I completed the story. I let it influence my creative process and the end result is a story called, The Voyage of Danny Bot. I encourage you to experiment with listening to the song embedded below either before or during your read and to let me know what worked best for you. I hope you all enjoy!


Until next week

So how about that? Good stuff, right? I hope it was at least ok stuff, ok stuff is acceptable. Storytelling has been an on again/off again hobby of mine. It usually ebbs and flows with my interests in the media I’m consuming. As I become more interested in say video games or comics, I become less interested in creating. When I start to grow bored of my entertainment, I start to develop things that are worthy my interest. Weird, right? Let me know if you experience something similar, I’d be interested in seeing if I’m alone on this. That’s it for now though, I hope you had a nice visit. I’ll give you this as a parting gift since you’ve been a good guest. Next time wipe your feet though, it’s only courteous. Until next week, be well and be safe!
