organizing

Every so often I get this wild hair to organize things, but I think my attention span is too short. Usually, I start by removing everything from the place I need organized, but when the time comes to put it back, I just don't feel like organizing anymore. This really sucks.

A random flow of thoughts...

I feel like typing. I want to type. I like typing. This is a laptop. My left eye is burning because there is probably something in it, such as mascara crumblies. I finished my book today. The title was Good In Bed. I was nice to read a book about a big girl. In the last two books I’ve read, there have been women who got pregnant by apathetic men. I thought it was kind of a weird coincidence that I read them back to back, considering I don’t remember any other book in which a character got pregnant, and then struggled with the decision of whether or not to keep a baby whose father didn’t give a rat’s ass.

Last night I thought about how much I would love to write something that people would actually be interested in reading. I have always tried to write short stories, or I would get ambitious and try to start on a longer story, but my creativity ran dry after a little while. I had great ideas on where to start, I had some ideas for characters, but that never really developed either. I would even be happy if I had a cool blog or something. I guess this whole writing thing probably has to do with all the books I’ve been reading that have characters in them who are writers working for magazines or newspapers. I don’t want to be a professional writer or anything, but I think it would be a fun thing to explore. Isn’t that weird, though, how the main character in chick lit always works at a magazine, a newspaper, publishers, something to do with writing, etc?? I think it’s funny. I guess the authors feel like they can be more realistic and include more juicy details in a story that has something to do with what they are familiar, which would be writing.

Ok, I’m rambling. I think I might go to bed soon because I’m a little tired and I want to get up early to go work out. Fun stuff. Oh yeah.
