I hate the sound of my own voice

I don’t talk a whole lot Most of the time I have taken up the idea of It is deeply ingrained. Though I do wonder if I hate it because when I think I stutter and then while I think that. My brain replays what I said in my head. Now that creates a feedback loop. I hear it twice. Then my annoyingly self conscious mind begins to wonder what those around me are thinking. It makes me seize up more. Boom I’m stuck. In reality I’m sure no one cares. The real issue is that I hear my voice so rarely that when I do hear what I really sound like, I can almost feel how the vocal cords are bending to make my own unique frequency of voice.

In order to truly control something you have train it. So that is what I did.. A few times at least. I read the first page of Harry Potter a couple times, My tongue got stiff in a few of the takes I also noticed that it is quite impossible for me to recite word for word. It is like my brain wants to just skip those words and give it a more human sound to it almost as if the way we write is not equal to that of human speech. It has to be perfect. But the real question is …..

Is it?

I just read the first paragraph outed close to a nightmare of everything sizing up boom here we go round two here we go .

What’s your favorite book?

We all have favorite books. Even if you don’t realize it, I’m sure that just by hearing the title you’ve thought of a book. Perhaps yours is a classic or a new modern book that has yet to explode into that beautiful flower you know it to be. My favorite book can easily be put at The Hobbit by Tolkien, the high fantasy that feels truly like it was made for himself and to calm his mind after a long days work . Who knows, but tell me what your favorite book is!

Books! Are they dying?

There are so many different ways to read books today, you can listen read physical books or even get ebooks that you can have a version on you at all times. But people seem to be getting less into reading more into videos so how do we know what is next? What do you think?

Hit the montage

Oh boy! You’ve finally hit it big, you’re doing what you love and making money at it. Life couldn’t be better, it took you a few years but when Hollywood gets ahold that long time to make they happen will be set and passed in a minute of screen time so all we must do is do our thing. Create what we must to get to our happiness and watch all the years later when that work is glossed over in a minute.

Trying to plan

I really was to,,, but maybe not enough it’s easier to just work towards your goal and plan. I am terrible with outlines I din’t understand them as much as I may try. So here we are with an idea we just go and run with it and hope for the best . I write out then first character outline and then I think to myself, hey what if things change later on. Then I start writing without the outline as we hope and move forward. What do you think of out lines?

Is thinking about things bad?

You’ve probably had those things that you watch or play and they are so profoundly deep that you think and you think on it. It goes deep. There are so many different to interpret it you could probably take a course on it and still have more to learn afterwards. So what do you do in those situations? Well for starters I think it’s great to watch films that make you think or see part but I also think it is great to watch lighter things to give your mind a break. But when you do think about it I do think it would be best to think about it for a few days and then move on to the next things.\

So not in moderation.

Art is interpretive

It could almost be endless as the more you think about the art the more you think about it effectively making the content you can see endless , what’s a film where you hav experienced this? Let me know!

A Quick thought of one of the strangest movies ever.

So I don’t know if you’ve heard of the movie Synedoche New York but I think it is about a guy that wants to create a massive play that encapsulates life. He spends his whole life working on it but it never seems to go anywhere and then he dies. “Devin!” I hear you say, “that sounds incredibly morbid and and sad!”

To which I say yes it does. The movie is weird,

But….

Even sad things can serve to motivate us properly.

  1. Don’t make things overly massive to the4 point of impossibly in your writing focus on a few characters and don’t dwell too much one every little detail; or things will never get done. I do not that some people do focus on a bunch of characters. As much as every little detail would be tempting don’t! Keep pace and finish it.
  2. Don’t dwell too much on the past. Learn from it definitely but don’t let it tether you, There are no strings on me or you!
  3. Look at things in a good light that will help there are always good thing Otherwise you might a sabotage good thing.

There we go three cool lessons!

Now listen to “Here comes the sun” by The Beatles

J.K. Rowling; I forgot you’re actually really good at story telling

Today Everyone knows who J. K. Rowling is to at least,t some degree. If you don’t, then it is most likely because you are too young to care about the name on the front of the book. There is no shame in admitting it trust me I was there also, to me her name may as well have been a collection of runes for how little it mattered to me who was on the front cover.

Now I must absolutely confess to you that I haven’t really read the books thoroughly ever.. I would dabble around as much as I could when the latest film came to be, but I never got the full story, it was always the later books, and then there was the issue that is frequently instilled in the problem of “Hey kid! You can’t read that book!” To which I would gasp! Totally confused! “You see,” says the wiser adult that myself, for in this time I was silly sixth-grader! “That book has a reading level of 5.9, and you are supposed to reading much much higher than that!

“So there I was missing the first Harry Potter book because I was too old for it. No big deal, I thought to myself. After all, I had seen the first film. I was aware of the story. I knew about Lord Voldemort and that story, so I just skipped ahead tried two read the biggest more modern books (Modern of course meaning latest.)

J. K. Rowling and Some Retrospection

So I was more of movie bug, and as I grew older, the only two books that were technically in my age range were the half-blood prince and the Deathly Hallows, but you can’t just start an epic tales such as that with the darkest and most complex stories. So essentially I just gave up. I sat there with my popcorn at the theatre and enjoyed them. Alright, cool no worries there. But then as things moved forward,” Despite Rowling saying that she was done with the Wizarding world, she kept going. Adding some interesting tidbits here and there, the most infamous being that Dumbledore was actually gay.

A representation of everyone looking at Rowling on Twitter (So at first, I was like “Oh my goodness! This is a crazy game changer. But as time marched forward, I found myself wondering why it even matters. My mother and I both recently had a conversation about how, through her reading the books, it never once crossed her mind that maybe Dumbledore was gay. Our conversation basically boiled down to us saying,

“Well he is an exceedingly powerful wizard, must not have not time for dating

-A super nifty quote from a bigger potter head than myself;

Anyways. Who Dumbledore is into isn’t up to me, it’s all good no worries only I do think ere could have been a better way to introduce such a fact partially due to the point of how Dumbledore (cool as he is, check this out. He isn’t the main character and who he’s into isn’t essential. I meanwhile reading when he was with Harry Potter talking about the mirror of Erised, I just couldn’t pick up any hints of that at all. Secondly, it wasn’t necessary for the slightest

Leave the past in the past

For the longest time, I was confused as to why people were so interested in Harry Potter…. Because there were so many things that were being retroactively added like how certain characters were Jewish or how Hogwarts is all-inclusive of all religious views, I’m sure we all could have assumed such things or not. If any of this stuff had been inferred in the text, then that’s fine, but it isn’t. Then she went on to apologize for different events in the series, and I was lost. What makes these books so great? My most recent memories being of her twitter posts.

But I caved my mother and grandmother had always been telling me to read them. I’d put it off. After all, those are kids books. I’m no kid! At the young age of twenty, I finally hit it,” Fuck it,” I said, downloading the audiobook of the first in the series. And beginning my journey narrated by Jim Dale. And I whisked away to that magical world. And over those several hours, I fully understood why this series was so popular.

To put it simply the movies are a bit like frosting. It’s good and will give you a sugar rush, but the books are then full cake it’s rich and moist. There is an amount of flavor that you can’t place but you want more it’s delicious it makes you crave more and more and then final being inside you understand totally why this series is as over as it is. Listen or read. Just do it, no matter what your thoughts on the author. That is why Rowling is so great.
