301/366 Getting Organised?

What do you do when you go into a bookshop? I usually take a quick look at the Science Fiction Section, but It had been quite a while since I bought an SF book. Notice the tense? Had. Now, don’t get excited, I haven’t bought a physical paper based book. I bought an audio book of Audible, I’d like to recommend a TV series to you, especially if you are with Amazon, where it is being streamed on Amazon, it is being hailed by scientists as very scientifically accurate for a variety of reasons. There are 5 seasons, and it is brilliant.

The series is based on James A. Corey’s series of books. normally, I’d say read the books first, then watch the TV, but this time I did it the other way round. And, I’m really glad I did, because as I listen to the book, I know what things look like, I picture the characters, I know what the ships look like, I know the scenery. It is brilliant.

It also has absolutely nothing to do with my being organised. But, it was a nice diversion. After the Science Fiction section, I usually head up the stairs to the reference area, I usually look in the self help area for the book entitled “Bill – this is the book that will totally organise your life”. Do you procrastinate? I think I do, but probably not as much as I think I do, I feel that parts of my life are not organised, and I waste a lot of time doing things that aren’t massively productive. By the same token though, why should I spend all of my time being busy doing useful things? I don’t of course, but I sometimes feel as though I should. Here then, we need to start thinking about what I mean as “useful” – I guess the first stab at this would be; stuff that keeps my brain busy. Sometimes, my writings are that stuff.

Another part of the book shop I go to is the travel writing section, I think if there is any author that I would aspire to be like in this genre, it would be Bill Bryson. His books are a dream to read. I don’t do a lot of travelling though, so following that route would be a bit pointless. History, I think would be an interesting topic, but I don’t normally visit the history section. That’s partly because I have never felt the need. I’m now thinking of books about writing about history, and also books on the local area, Gosport – don’t seem to be many of them about

I shall keep looking.

Back again to organising my self. I suppose I should at least bring this to a conclusion. I think goal setting would help. The main goal of this blog is to satisfy my need to write. But what service does it give to you, the reader? I’d like the blog to inform and entertain. In order to do at least the first of those, I feel it should have a focus. Well, it does have a focus; my locality project. But what is Locality, as I have already intimated, it is writing about the things in which I am interested. I can even identify those things. But it’s writing about them that is becoming an issue. In order to write about Astronomy, do I actually have to do some? When would that be then? The questions are the same for all of my areas. I do hope you are not getting fed up with my prattling. We will try and get things sorted.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
