I love to write. But over the past three months, I’ve seemed to have lost all inspiration and motivation. Is this writer’s block when I’m clearly an amateur? I lose confidence and patience so easily.

    What do you like to write? Fiction? Non fiction? Poetry? Prose? I’m not a writer so I can’t help much but I think the best thing to do would be to not worry about it too much. I’m sure inspiration will come to you soon.

    I doubt your in the same place as the letter writer but Strayed’s reply has advice on writing. I’m not a writer so not sure if it is helpful.

        Ah I see! I suggested reading because I think the best writers are often those who read a lot. It’s not that they read for a purpose–they just love reading, what they learn through reading, and the language itself.

        It’s good to just read around, within or outside the areas you’re writing in/ your usual areas of interest, to build knowledge and curiosity about people and things of all sorts.

Waikiki season 2 ep1:
Im glad they kept the same waikiki wonderland song!! But overall, the first episode was a bit weak compared to last season. I felt last seasons characters meshed together better. But they did get better with time, so it might be the same here. This episode felt like dumb and dumber but it got better as it went on. I like that they reused old jokes and referenced old characters. I have high hopes for this show.

I forgot who, but someone on DB mentioned trying I Picked Up a Celebrity on the Street, and I decided to give it a try due to the overwhelming ads of Viki I had on instagram. (Still ongoing watch from my behalf)
It’s quite messed up, but I’m gobbling it all up.
She FREAKING kidnapped him. and he’s an ASSHOLE. This couple DOES NOT WORK, and SHOULD NOT WORK.
She can be cute, and hard-working, but it’s not excusable.

But Sung Hoon is good-looking. And despite her faults, she’s ok to watch? (but oh gosh this is wrong on so many levels).
Forced living is one of my favorite tropes no matter the situation.

I’ve come to accept I like the oddest things.
So if you want something cheesy, and so-so-so wrong, (and some eye-candy) I’ve got the show for you.

    I was thinking about starting that but I ended up starting Something in the Rain/Pretty Noona… (I didn’t watch it when it was airing and I’m only going to watch the first 8 eps) But now you’ve made me want to watch I picked up a Celebrity on the Street again. It looks so awful 😂

We move on from Jannabi to Every Single Day.
The genres are quite different (later being a bit more rock vs Jannabi’s indie)

But an OST from Every Single Day is usually a hit!
PS: anyone who wants to join is welcome. We post a song a day to a group/musician we appreciate.

Of course I’ve just tagged a few people, but anyone is welcome.

Hopefully, this show is good.

      It all fits right? I mean i completely understood your point. But i swear alzheimmers presents itself in different ways.

      1
      1

Ive just completed The Light In Your Eyes, and Im speechless. I believe I cried during the whole episode. COMMENTS: (PLEASE DISCUSS ALSO IN REPLYYYYY)

I love the different perspectives we got: Hye Jas (what alzheimers is through her eyes) and the ones around her how theyre affected by it.

I know her son isn’t a main character, but his perspective to me felt the most poignant. Im so happy he found peace with his mom.
My gosh, so Hye ja trying “to save her dad” in the first episodes was probably just of reflection of how guilty she felt towards her son, and how she would lose years off her life to save him. I knew it felt odd how she prepared and worried about her “dad’s” food. I mean i do too, but not as much as her. Its motherly love.

I was so touched by how the daughter in law dealt with her MIL forgetting her. She didnt feel resentful towards hye ja, as it should be. I know that it hurts so much and trying to correct someone just makes them more distressed and confused.

I believe alzheimers distresses the person who has it at first, but eventually they’re not aware of it anymore, accept it, and bask in their own memories and imagination (like hye ja). In the end, it distresses the persons close ones more, and we have to learn to accept it. Like the daughter in law said: as long as I know who she is, That’s all that matters.

I also like how they wrapped up hye jas story. I had a feeling itd be something like that. So tragic. And she felt guilty for her husbands passing. No wonder in her distorted imaginations she imagined joon ha being so lonely in passed episodes. SPOILER: i interpret the ending as she died, and shes happily with him in their heaven.

And that scene where the man comforted himself saying his wife dying would allow him to do more was heartbreaking. This is how I feel sometimes, and although i think, i know we don’t actually ever want it.

In all, WOW. Good going writer nim. Good going cast. I have a renewed faith in NJH.

    Is this show funny too? I mean I do gather from all posts that it is definitely an emotional wreck but I was wondering if it is somewhat in line with Go back Couple. I really need a show like GBC which was equal parts poignant, funny and wholesome. It looks somewhat like that too.

I\’m dehydrated from crying. Can we discuss the masterpiece of The Light in Your Eyes ep11? I LOVED IT. I deal with alzheimers and IT IS CRAZY ACCURATE. I love the interwoven memories and hints to the previous episodes. So magnificently done. So beautiful. Also, the funny is quite frankly funny.
I relate so muuuuccchh to the son and his wife to how they deal with the mom\’s alzheimers. The writer has thought this out through and through and has a very good knowledge of what\’s it like to deal with alzheimers. Im glad this show will earn my first bean of the year.

    I have super mixed feelings about this ep.

    My grandma has advanced alzheimer’s and the way it’s playing out with the flashbacks didn’t work at all for me. Too much from what we saw in the drama was straight up imagined without any real connection to the past scenes. I felt emotionally disconnected to both the flashbacks and now to the entire drama we saw for 10 episodes. So it starts to feel more like a gimmick than a great twist.

    The present day scenes hit really hard, and those were fantastic. Totally agree with you there.

    I need to see 12 to decide how I feel.

    0
    1

      Hmm i see your point. But i also understood the distortedness between the first eps and ep 11. When my grandmas alzheimers wasnt so advanced, shed often vocalize what shed imagine seeing and had visions off from the truth but still a bit true. For example, shed think she was 20 and i was her sister. Sometimes shed imagine me as one if her old students. My point being is that most probably it was combination of her imagination and her dementia that resulted in the episodes we saw.

      I absolutely love it. The entire show is some mix of reality and her memories. Almost like when we dream, how we pull things from real life. I think it’s brilliant. It’s so sad but so beautiful. That final sequence was beautifully done.

      The first part of this ep, before the reveal, was just showing us that she was losing more and more touch with reality, because of how wild the hijinks were.

        second male and female leads often have stalker tendencies as well as delusions that their “love” will suddenly will suddenly be reciprocated despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, even when that evidence is being flat out told “nope, never gonna happen”
