Days Seventeen and Eighteen: Perhaps I Have A Solution To Entering "High Creative Mode"

"Abandon All Hope, Ye Who Enter Here." -- Inscription on the Gates of Hell, Dante Alighieri's "Inferno"

The worthy detour? I think I've got a formula for "High Creative Mode"... just it's not particularly consistently effective yet, and it's playing a pretty high stakes game. On Day Seventeen, I made my first crack at applying it, and had an incredible day. I wrote a 5000-word piece, that after editing and getting the ending right, I think could be amazingly fantastic. Just writing it was a joy.

Following from that, I was walking on air for the rest of the day.

In Day Eighteen, I attempted the same thing, and fell short. This was maddening, and the whole day was aggravating. I think I've got a rough formula for High Creative Mode, but it doesn't produce 100% results. And when it fails, it's pretty ugly, at least so far.

I kept detailed notes on both days, much more fleshed out than usual. There's more stream-of-consciousness. They're... honestly, a little weird. You can evaluate for yourself:


On Me and My Thoughts

Sushi and I haven't clicked yet. See the thing I like about sushi is the whole thing that it's Japanese not that it's nice. I love Japan and I really want to love sushi.

I had sushi only once and it was in this new sushi place near where I live. I went with my girlfriend and she had sushi before so she was telling what's nice and what's not. I looked at the menu and most of the sushi on the menu was tuna. I don't about other places as I said this was my first time eating sushi but on this menu there was loads of tuna. Well I don't like tuna but I said I'll give it go and try it.

I took the first roll, we got the rainbow rolls. I nearly got sick. I took the tissue when my girlfriend wasn't looking and put the half chewed sushi roll in the tissue. It was not nice at all. But the good thing about that experience in the sushi place was that I got green tea. And me I never had green tea didn't even know what it taste like. I took my first sip and I fell in love with green tea. It was just amazing. After that day I would drink green tea everyday and still today I drink green tea. It's one of my favourite drinks.

But I'm not giving up on sushi I will love it. I want to love it.
