Set the timer… 20 minutes… Go!
My mind on painkillers is as mushy as the mashed potato I will be consuming for dinner tonight. Thank you wisdom tooth! Of course I say this with the utmost sarcasm as pain and infection are not fun, neither is lack of food and sleep.
Sometimes I have so many thoughts to share and I forget to write them down, now my mind is blank when I wish I had something to say. I shall persevere, as I have to do this for maybe 18 more minutes.
I do not know if free writing consists of personal anecdotes or it should be filled with fictional stories. Either way, this is a learning curve and it is what it is.
I actually do not think I have said anything of substance yet, but I am trying.
I have spent the past two days mostly resting in hopes that my mouth will give me a break from the pain. I cannot see a dentist until at least next week, so it is painkillers and mashed potatoes for me until then.
I had a dream last night, it was not pleasant. It was graphically gory and I know that is not for everybody, so I will leave it there. My dreams are scary a lot of the time, but I do not think I could do without them.
My vivid imagination is set to play constantly, but I suppose it can be quite fun most of the time and it does make for good stories. I do not share many stories on WordPress, which is strange as I write so many. It seems to just be poetry. I should remedy that. If I am honest, I fear the reception and that my stories will no be good enough, so I hold them close to me instead. What is a writer if they cannot write a decent story? What would I do then?
Another blank spell unfortunately. I literally did not know what to think about. I suppose it is a nice break not having my mind filled with everything constantly, I should be grateful for this time. Although it is not good when I am setting myself a free writing challenge right now, that is when I need the thoughts to turn into words.
I wonder how long it has been. My timer has not gone off yet, so I need more thoughts. Come on brain, you can do it!
Holding attention right now is a difficult tasks. Perhaps… I forgot what I was going to say. I have taken a fair few painkillers. I suppose this is the reason behind… I forgot what I was going to say again. Come on Sara, concentrate.
I fear that if I ever read this back, I will regret writing it and posting it, which is what I figure I will do next.
I have been trying to get back into reading. Anything keeping my attention has been quite the task though. I thought perhaps trying audiobooks, but is that cheating? I do not know. I have never actually tried an audiobook, perhaps they will not keep my attention either.
I am hungry, I wish I could eat solid food. Once I get these infernal wisdom teeth removed, I will not be able to eat solid foods for two weeks, I am not looking forward to that, I love a good meal.
My birds are being noisy. How can creatures so small make that much noise. The cute, noisy buggers.
I do not think this is free writing, but I tried! I think my time is up, I hope you have a great weekend and I hope I Become, what is the word? Understandable again soon. That was not the word I was looking for, but I do not remember what it was right now.
There is the timer!
