Day 190 – Brain storming


I have my brain wrapped up around four different things I am suppose to do soon and fast. I think I am also under some kind of delusional spell, because although it’s poring outside and everything is gray and ugly, I am looking out the window and smile like it’s the most beautiful, sunny day. Who says it’s suppose to be sunny in order to have a beautiful day? The sun is overrated.

Tonight I am officially relaunching the sleepless nights for a while. I was starting to get used to this very strict and organized schedule I have created for myself in the last couple of weeks, but as good as it’s been, I need to work in my own way for some time and unfortunately that means I need the silence and the darkness that only nights can provide me with. It’s interesting to see how a small habit from childhood, like reading more at night, which could easily be cut out from our lives, gets stuck into our routine by our own choice. You can call it a vice, addiction or any other way, but in the end you are just manipulating yourself into thinking you can’t do it otherwise.

Thus, I will answer the calling of my working at night vice, and for the next couple of weeks I will be brain storming, writing like crazy and finishing some things that got left behind. Let the countdown begin! What better night to start than Monday night, right after the writers group meeting. 😉

P.S. Here is a song that never fails to help me stay focused and inspired.

About the author

Ela Vasilescu

I’m a writer based in Florence, Italy.

Human nature inspires me, different cultures, traditions, folk stories and the differences which make us unique. Documenting stories is a privilege, a glimpse into humanity, an unforgettable experience, one which I embrace and honour every day.

If you have a story twitching in the back of your pocket, one that is ready to be told, shared and heard, chances are I will be ready to listen; so don’t hesitate to send me an email.
