I recently obtained employment doing manual labor – but not like construction or anything like that – but I am certainly not sitting for eight hours.
I’m glad that I have found a job (even though it may be temporary) but I wonder how much my work will suffer. I wrote the beginnings of a story based on this online conversation I had the other night but I didn’t have the energy to continue.
When I got home from work, I was so tired, I barely managed to keep my eyes open; I was beat.
I thought about my energy level and if it would be any different if I were a receptionist or administrative assistant at a big corporate company. Would I be more tired or energized? I can’t answer that question so I won’t ponder the matter any further.
The fact that I am writing here after a long day of hard work means I won’t let “life” get in the way of writing. I just proved myself wrong, again.
When I start writing this story, I’ll be on fire!
Do you feel sometimes like you have so much stimulation you don’t know where to start? You’re bombarded with so many ideas that you are pulled in five million different directions for the beginning of a story? Or you’re compelled to try so hard to write something inspirational or a story with significance?

I was fall cleaning and uncovering pieces of paper with words and ideas for stories. I also found pictures, letters, and birthday cards from friends (I don’t throw anything away and maybe I should!).
In unearthing all of these materials, I was able to get rid of the pay stubs from three years ago and discovered bits of random notes that I can use for my future stories.
Unfortunately, right now I’m in home improvement mode. I’m turning my old bedroom into a study and I need a bookcase, a desk, and other neat office type furniture. I have overlooked my artistic duties to write (not even a prompt!) and instead have lost myself in Buffy and Angel episodes.
While I was attending NYU, I took an Interviewing Strategies class in which part of our final project we had to complete the following sentence on an index card: “My purpose on this planet…”

Author: Stephen King
Published by: Scribner (2010)
King’s latest work of fiction consisted of a novella titled, “Blockade Billy” and the short story, “Morality.”
Not being a baseball fan, there was much terminology, slang, and basics of the game I couldn’t grasp or was interested in learning about. However, the story, “Blockade Billy,” will entertain lovers and non-lovers of baseball alike because King never only writes about one subject. We meet William Blakely, who is from Iowa, and a damn good ball player. When one of the players is nicked on his ankle during a game with Blakely on the mound, one of the coaches becomes suspicious of the kid. The story contains typical King suspense, which was an absolute pleasure.
