Five-Hundred Word Challenge 744: Just Some Rambling About Creating a Whole Body of Work

Sometimes it is quite difficult to create a whole body of work. Sometimes. Not always. There is a distinction, but I’m not going to go into that. This is just a springboard for other things. That is the way it is going to work, unless it is not the way it is going to work, but I digress.

It can be difficult to create a whole body of work; even more so if that whole body of work is to be some sort of interconnected universe with little (if any) contradictions. It takes time. It takes a lot of hours and effort and there are things that may need to be given up in order to achieve such a thing that may be seen as a towering monument to only a few things. It adds to a collective pool of creation, but it itself probably has to be its own thing, so long as it is seen from certain angles.

You don’t want to overdo it. You also don’t want to underdo it. There needs to be a precious balance struck so as to be able to make sure that the whole thing doesn’t become this unwieldy beast that escapes from you, though of course there are times when that is completely acceptable, and even perhaps partially acceptable. But! There there needs to be caution and care and there needs to be the making sure that it all does the thing that it needs to do, when it all comes down to whatsoever it is that it needs to come down to.

However, there are times when perhaps the best thing is to let it do something else; something that you didn’t think that it needed to do. That is of course just as important, so long as you know when that is that that needs to happen. Wait; it’s important either way, so knowing when is better than not knowing when as you may force something in the wrong direction and cause it to topple over. Perhaps there is the possibility of knowing and then choosing to topple the whole thing anyway. This present a bit of a conundrum, but I don’t know if I can address it right now.

I probably can but realistically I am choosing not to. I don’t feel like it. What I feel like is sitting down and relaxing for a bit. Relaxing is nice, as are other things that are out there. Perhaps a work of relaxation is the best process to follow as that way you get to relax and build a foundation of relaxing, or something like that. I don’t know; I’m just throwing things at the wall and seeing what comes out of all of this. It seems like a futile thing to do, but there is every possibility that throughout this process the whole body of work of which I may or may not create may just spring out and rise up from this garbled ending of a sentence.

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 06:17:03

Happy with the speed, but it’s clear that I ran out of steam before finishing. I think that if I had stopped the timer, then spent time fleshing this out it would’ve worked quite well. Oh well.

Written at home.
