Changing the rain

2 Comments

Every morning I sit down with a cup of green tea, my Tardis journal in which I write my monthly goals, my one line a day journal, my pretty pens, and a book for a couple of hours. At the moment I’m re-reading A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess, an all-time favourite of mine. This little routine keeps me focused and motivated. I think sleeping is a waste of perfectly productive time and therefore it makes me feel better when I do productive activities as soon as I get up.

My night routine includes film viewing and tea drinking along with writing down creative ideas and to-do lists. I watched John Cassavetes’ A Woman Under the Influence from 1974 a couple of nights ago. What a masterpiece! Gena Rowlands performance is sublime. It made me think of Bette Davis in Of Human Bondage from 1934 and I adore her. Last night I watched Samuel Fuller’s Shock Corridor from 1963. Tonight I’m re-watching Valley of the Dolls from 1967.

Over the last few days I’ve also watched the documentaries The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters and For the Bible Tells Me So. Both of them are definitely worth a watch.

  1. Gracious, you fit a lot in! I do agree about sleeping, though. I wake early and get much of my writing sone then.

    You have great taste in books!
