1K a Day Motivational – “It Inspires Me” September

It’s the last week of September and this is the unbiased best month of the year! I use the last motivational post of the month to talk about and somewhat review a piece of media that has touched me and inspired me in some way. I’ve talked about movies, TV shows, books, and anime. I thought maybe I’d go a little outside the usual fare and into comic book land.

I have never been a big comics reader, mostly because comics have a way of being ridiculous and bad, especially the perpetually ongoing superhero series that are still in abundance to this day.

But there are gems out there, special comics that I have read over the years that are transcendent of the medium. I’m going to talk about Alias today, which is maybe jumping the gun just a little bit since the Netflix TV show centered around Jessica Jones isn’t coming out until November.

1K a Day Motivational – “But I Was Stuck”

It’s Thursday and that means it’s time for me to throw a random sprinkling of thoughtful, motivating words at your eyeholes and hope you don’t go blind!

I tried throwing glitter once and I’m still cleaning it up. And people keep calling me Jasmine and offering me dollar bills.

It’s disconcerting.

Today at Panning for Clouds I’m gonna talk about those times when shit’s just going right and despite a dancing plethora of blockades and exhaustion, words are just falling out of your head at an incredible rate and you couldn’t stop them even if you wanted to. Continue reading
