Song mood: Grace Kelly by MIKA. I love Ryan Reynolds’ duet with Will Ferrel on this song. It was mesmerizing. The song by MIKA is pretty cool as well. It reminds me of Freddy Mercury and Queen.
I don’t know what it is about watching Reynolds and Ferrel do this song, but I’m just in a better mood after watching.
It got me thinking about the power of the smaller things. Larger things, like a novel and whatnot, seem a bit overwhelming. But shorter stories, stories that are only two pages or one sentence seem a lot easier.
Let’s take the one sentence story. One can think of the story and in one sentence it’s done. But the sentence may not be what you want it to be. So then I ask myself, what isn’t right about the story. How can I change the sentence so it is what I want it to be. So there, in a brief moment of time, I have gone through three areas of writing: generating the idea, writing it down, and editing. Anyway.
Sometimes I get overwhelmed about things, and my breathes are short. A small thing to do, but the most helpful thing ever, is to take nice long breathes. In four counts, out eight counts. Soon, my body begins to right itself out.
The world happens in the smaller things.
