Brad’s Back From The Brink, And Now – Hey! – More Groovy Than Ever…
“We dance for laughter, we dance for tears, we dance for madness, we dance for fears; we dance for hopes, we dance for screams, we are the dancers, we create the dreams” – Albert Einstein.
What a month THAT was!
Moreover, what the blazes happened to that hapless idiot who eats too much cake?!
Thought Brad had succumbed to the wild excesses of his own bloggiversary party?
Not quite, me luvvlies…
Grab a muffin an’ a mocha, an’ gedda loada THIS sick note…
“Put on your red shoes and dance the blues” – David Bowie.
My creative faculties were all set to dazzle you with some spooky posts during Halloween week, but then – all of a sudden, and fer one whole bally frustrating fortnight!! – my laptop went on the blink for no apparent reason…
In addition, during the first week of November, a particularly merciless barrage of bad news, rotten luck AND poor health pummelled me into such a lousy mood that the last thing one wanted to do was write.
During such difficult times, a playlist of frenetic hot-steppers is required, so let me share with you some of the latest platters to lift my spirits (as well as my feet).
Rather than let all my spooktacular ramblings go to waste, the Horrorthon is still scheduled to go ahead!
After all, this is the ideal season to indulge in such frightful endeavours; moreover, some of my SF seems to be seeping into darker, more eerie territory anyways, so it looks like you’re going to have to brave a way lot more than just my usual tedious text…
“Faeries, come take me out of this dull world, For I would ride with you upon the wind,
Run the top of the dishevelled tide, And dance upon the mountains like a flame” – William Butler Yeats.
Has yours truly – whisper it – run out of ideas?!
NAY! As Thor would say.
Coming up with Posts is not the problem – trying to sustain waning levels of energy and motivation to complete any of them – especially when faced with the unenviable fact that FEWER peeps read Bradscribe than, say, 2-3 years ago – continues to be a niggling concern.
Nevertheless, Brad soldiers on regardless.
Besides, an ever-growing stack of unfinished projects now clutters my Dashboard. And let’s not neglect to mention that abundance of aeons-old journals and papers full of abandoned tales accumulating dust doing nowt but lie about the dark recesses of Brad Manor.
This site provides a tremendous platform with which to revise (most, if not all) these works and save said endeavours for online posterity.
Yea, intrepid one, know ye this:
you have NOT seen the last of Brad!
“Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world” – Voltaire.
“Forget your voice, sing! Forget your feet, dance! Forget your life, live! Forget yourself and be!” – Kamand Kojouri.
Annnd, before he realises it, Brad is trying to complete a single Post before this month passes us by…
So, always that most faithful standby: another music compilation is cobbled together.
December should – Dyzan willing – turn out to be such a cram-packed month full of fiction, and articles – and goodness-knows-what! – that you should all be sick of the sight of the ‘Scribe by Christmas! 😉
“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music” – Friedrich Nietzsche.
