I think that perhaps doing another speed challenge is not the best thing to do at this particular juncture but I feel like doing it for some reason. Perhaps I’m just too stubborn or something. Anyway.
I think about the sky and the clouds and I think about how they form and dissipate. I think about how rain moves across the ocean and I think about how the waves break against the coastline. Various forms of terrain and various forms of erosion. Jagged rocks, smooth, sand grains, vegetation, sandbanks, dunes and all those things flow through my thoughts.
I wonder if I’m applying my degree in a way that I didn’t think I’d ever apply it, and I wonder as to the limits of my imagination. Perhaps I also wonder about how my imagination is growing from just spending time at the coast.
I think that perhaps I need to rest a bit but I won’t do that as there remains a lot to be done before I can declare that very little has been done. It is a long day and long days stretch out for eternities, though they always end before an eternity does so I don’t really know what I’m going on about. However, I still think about things and it seems that the days do indeed grow longer, so I’m going to assume that somehow I’m controlling the flow of time and in that control I’m somehow getting more out of the day, but a lot of that more is a lot of nothing so I’m getting a lot more nothing out of the day.
I like to be efficient where I can.
So I’m thinking about these things and I’m thinking about how they work. I’m thinking about them in part due to my degree but also how they influence a fantasy setting. I’m thinking about how much a fantasy setting should reflect reality and how much it should look like reality, if it should look like reality at all. Should magic be everywhere? Should it be powerful? Should it be mundane? Should it have a cost based on not being able to create something from nothing? I don’t know but thees are what I am mostly thinking about.
I should probably think about other things but it is a long day and I’m trying to get things underway. There is a lot to take in and a lot to absorb. There still is a lot of coastline to photograph and this will happen unless it doesn’t.
The pleasant thing about going on trips to try and understand things better is I’m getting out of the house a bit more and that’s nice. It’s also nice that I get to partake in a few of my interests at once.
Anyway, there is a lot of building to be done and the day escapes so I need to go chasing it, but before that I’m just gonna try and slow down time just a bit more.
The time it took to write five-hundred words: 06:27:37
Fast and with not too much drag.
Also pretty low on repetition. Maybe.
Written at home.
