Wreck It

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 12, 2014, 11:39 PM
I caved and purchased a Wreck This Journal for both my wife and I.  I had originally thought it was stupid because I happened to flip to a few "boring" pages of prompts.  But last week, I started seeing pages of it pop up in my instagram feed.  I liked what I was seeing.  My creative juices started churning.  While I know I can figure out prompts for myself in an effort to spark ideas, I think it's more of a challenge to do what someone else has set out for you.  

Anyway, they arrived on Thursday (gotta love Amazon Prime before it got so outrageously expensive).  Lisa started hers immediately.  I don't remember what I had been doing, but I didn't pick mine up for a good 30 minutes after it arrived.  By then, Lisa had a good half dozen pages started.  So far, I am liking most of what I am trying.  I am working on accepting whaever comes from it.  I'm trying to stash my perfectionism behind other things, and I'm having fun.  Every now and then I look online for ideas.  I'm trying to take my time with each one to come up with something unique.  It's tough, but some thing are working.  I'm also taking this opportunity to try out some of the kids' crafts/ideas I have seen online.  So far, so good.  

I don't have any really decent pics of what I have done to this point, but I will try to upload some as they come into being.  In the mean time, here are some low-quality phone pics of a handful of my pages.  I don't have a pic of the page I spent the last 5 hours designing and implementing, but that will come tomorrow or Monday.

Wrong side of the mirrorI can see a woman, watching me through the glass. She is young, in her early twenties, with a haunted look about her. There is nothing especially spectacular about her, but something something quietly remarkable draws you in; captures your attention; fixes you to the spot.
Her eyes are a slate grey, intense and piercing; a dark energy smouldering in their depths. You notice that they glow a deep blue, like the ocean, when caught by the morning light, sometimes even the shade of a pale winter sky. A subtle ring of gold accents the border between her pupils and irises, which hold a faint sparkle of mischief against their black voids.
A shock of tight, red curls, messy yet somehow precise, frames her face. The sides of her hairstyle are trimmed short, not quite a mohawk; showing her natural gold-tinted brown. You could almost imagine her as one of the blond, adorable, cherub children, if not for the shadows of experience marking her features.
Beautiful is not a word that suits her, and de
  Once upon a nightmare.Once upon a nightmare,
Where knights are stained with rust,
Once upon as daymare,
In a prison far away,
Once upon a lifetime
and once upon alone,
Once upon a desperation
for somewhere safe like home.
Oozing nectar and quick silver tears,
Solemn eyes that have witnessed the years,
Perfumed sighs, rancid as a corpse,
Calloused hands graze virgin scars.
Pure white flags in clear blue sky,
Bowing in defeat, no longer to cry,
Accepted fates, resisting not,
Fallen blades are splashed with blood.
Once upon a memory,
The voices in your head,
Once upon an idea,
Filling you with dread,
Once upon an escape,
Searching for release,
Once upon a surrender
to your own inevitable death,
Once upon a surrender
to your long and final breath.
Thanks for the favs :meow:
