I have scaled the wall of writer's block!

It feels so good to break through the wall of writers block that I have been bashing my head against for practically two days straight. I have a first scene... that is not perfect, probably, but that I believe is good. And I know a couple of the other characters who are going to enter the story and how they are going to enter. And when I am through with it, I will hopefully have a wonderful comedy. Which nobody will ever produce, but I will feel good about having written a comedy. And with my intensity, I would never have thought that comedy would be what I would write. How lovely a turn of events.

I have so much energy that it gave me energy to do other homework. How often does that happen?

I believe I have forgotten how to write short stories. I have one to write for Writing Sweatshop and I don't know where to begin. Of course, if it didn't have to be about seeing and knowing, then perhaps it would be interesting. But it does have to be about seeing and knowing. Perhaps I will attempt to find a way to personify each and put them into contact and conflict with each other. Because sometimes seeing helps knowing and sometimes it hinders it. Which is actually Toni Morrison's idea, but I like that idea, so I think I will stick with it. My question is what would happen if the people in the allegory of the cave were blind.

I'm sure everyone wanted to know that.

I tried to write an entry earlier, but Livejournal crashed on me. Which was a rather unhappy occurrence. I think I have to start having shorter playlists in winamp. Because it takes up too much of my precious memory otherwise.

I have written this entire entry in less than the length of the Goo Goo Dolls song "Iris."
