Blogging for a Year

1 year ago today, I started blogging on M.C. Scriptor.

Since then, I’ve learned a lot, and have done a lot. I have learned a few things about myself, and have set new goals for the future.

I’ve been rather absent from the blog over the last month or so, but that should change soon, as I attempt the NaBloPoMo and NaNoWriMo challenges.

I look forward to it! See you soon! -MC

Light in the Distance: DP Challenge

The Daily Post asked in this week’s photo challenge:

“This week, let’s play with light! Show us what refraction means to you.”

I came across this peculiar sight whilst waiting for a bus last week. It was a rather damp and foggy morning, and a rather striking silence surrounded me. Hiding in this scene I could see a very golden light, streaming in through the thinning tree leaves, casting a beautiful glow on the ground. It is visible in the center.

Although a lower quality photo, due to the poor zoom on my smart phone, (the device used to take these two particular photos) I would like to emphasize the light.

Strangely enough, amidst the drip-dropping of rainfall, the longer I stared, the faster the light seemed to fade away.

The Pop Culture Poem

This is what happens when you mix writer’s block, and too much internet browsing. It was meant to be done as a spoken word poem, and is comprised mainly of internet memes and pop culture references. Enjoy!

Over 9000 words fight to the surface.

One does not simply stew about the non-nonsensical-ness of their order.

You cannot let it go, no matter how hard you try.

I don’t always have writers block, but when I do, it’s a huge pain in the behind.

My mind shall explode like Heisenberg’s false methamphetamine,

and my annoyance shall build until the moment of Armageddon when it rains adorable kittens from the sky.

This dialogue will be exchanged with my friends,
“Dude, eat a snickers.”
“Why?”
“Because you get a little insane when you’re hungry…. Better?”
No!  No it is not better!

Because I want to be the very best, like no one ever was!

I will be the one who comes out sparkling like the modern-day vampire! Continue reading

Numbers: DP Photo Challenge

This week, Daily Post challenged:

-“This week, publish an image of a sign — from the signs you encounter on the street to more personal, less obvious signs that hold meaning for you.”-

numbers

Numbers on a calendar with days crossed off. For me, calendars have a lot of meaning, but the question that plagues me is, why do we cross out the days?

Perhaps we are merely keeping track of what day it is? More likely to serve as a countdown to a future time. Be it positive or negative, I find it interesting how we always seem to be wishing our time away.

Counting down, to that inevitable day, when the time you had wished away, will seem so much more valuable.

We’ve Endured 40 Years

Daily Post asked this week in their photo challenge:

“Endurance

Show us what endurance means to you. Is it that high-school diploma, beads of sweat earned on a long run, a treasured family heirloom, or something else entirely?”

When people say that things used to be built to last, that is because they were built to last!

Take this vacuum cleaner as an example; now almost 40 years old, and still functions properly.

There is a reason for this: Planned Obsolescence.
