Day 689 of 365 More.

You know, looking at this makes it seem a lot more depressing than I thought I felt at the time.

I actually had a few really good ideas the last couple days. I was really happy with them. It was a good three or four day run. And I’m burnt out again.

A mere ghost of my former self.

It’s funny. The main reason I started this project was to push myself to come up with new ideas every day. I had serious doubts about being able to make 365 days. After the first year I kept going because I enjoyed the process and the challenge. Today is day 689 and half of me is amazed that I’ve been able to keep coming up with shit. The other half s]is in constant fear that the well is dry.

Maybe I’ll have something tomorrow.

    The shadows on your face are perfect… 🙂 I’m not even half done with my 365 – and I feel like I run out sometimes, but then any little event, or little eye-glimpse of something inspires me again… I just try to be patient and it will come again. 🙂

    Why does this remind me of an angry Ghoulardi? Maybe it’s the goatee.

    So, this immediately reminded me of James’ creeper shots.

    Maybe the third 365 can all come from audience suggestions.

    It’s kind of like a column. You do it daily because your readers (viewers) expect it.

    Some are homeruns right out of the park… others, swings and misses, but in the end you do it because it’s part of whom you’ve become.

    It does look like Ghoulardi!!

    @M.Gruber: thanks

    @sallyrye: that’s pretty much the right attitude. I’ve just been bitchy lately. Don’t mind me.

    @jooboos: Yeah, I thought it had kinda a ghost stories around the campfire appeal.

    @Crystal Chroma: thank you.

    @lrayholly: I think you said that about one of my other shots once.

    @jessi.: yeah, I actually had the same thought after I took it.

    @thehalfshow.com: sigh… I wish one of the steps there was "win the lotto"

    @DeHoll: eh… I don’t even really think about it much anymore other than when I happen to be writing about it.
