How to do this?

A big question - how to do this?elsa - word, story, image idea music person
I know it can be done, but

I can do this,elsa - word, story, image idea music person
but it takes a lot of doing.

It's easiest in the morning. elsa - word, story, image idea music person
Everything seems possible then.


What do you see when
you see me, I wonder.elsa - word, story, image idea music person
I keep trying. I'm not sure
what will happen. But over
and over again, I keep
trying - because something
in me doesn't give up, not
forever anyway.

The making of a creative site with song, spoken word, story, music, ideas.
Web site design, choices. Details, knowledge, learning.
Ongoing work to make things happen.

JULY 23 , 2006


So much has happened,so amazingly much - the site has been gone over and over, with bits of fine-tuning done page after page, so many thousands of details checked into.

Masses of work - but not the big sweeping work of thinking up the general design, but the work of trying to make sure that a page has the best possible chance of looking good to whoever looks at it, and has the best possible chance of being looked at.

In many ways it's the begining of a very long haul, from the first getting the toes wet to being deep in the ocean of the web - swimming hopefully, not caught in an undertow.

So work has also been done on keywords, checking that the pages do what the web wants, so they will be seen. Someone has said this is doing tricks. I have thought about this a lot. And I think of people studying for tests memorizing dates they will never need again, doing their best for scores that will give them a better chance of getting into a university, getting a scholarship. I think of birds singing - all to up their chances of getting the mate they want.

Well, I see what I am doing in the same light - I see there is a tunnel and light at the end of it. I am trying to get to that light as quickly as possible, hurting no one on the way. This isn't about knocking anyone down or out, as in war games. It is about doing one's best.

I think of Olympic champs, of people who perform better than most others. Effort and learning.

It doesn't mean always conforming. I have been dreadful at following rules.

I think of cellist Jacqueline Dupre - recognized the world over though her playing style was totally unconventional.

Anyway, I am going off on all kinds of tangents.

But central is ... I have been giving things my best shot, trying to make sure I help this project as much as possible, not let it down when I could possible do something to give it a better chance.

But I haven't written at all in this blog. No inner urge to tell of all I'm doing. Even now I'm writing because I've just gone over the entries, have done little things in the display, and at the end have decided it's time for a hello, an update.

Things are going well - but always much more slowly than I'd like.

I wanted to get going on the next area - The Idea Emporium - three weeks ago when I came home.

I am just about there - and it's hard because there are all kinds of versions of the opening page (2 mainly) and so instead of just forging ahead, setting something up, I am looking at what has been done. How will that be incorporated? What will be used and what left behind?

I will see.

Now I am going onto the web, first to upload a whole slew of slightly revised pages, and then to submit (hate that word, connotations of submission, being submissive) another page to MSN (right now, they're taking sites one page per day), and also to submit the full site as it stands to Yahoo and Google.I've waited with Yahoo and Google until now - not like with my first site (this is just the second) because I found the thought of doing it too challenging, threatening, frightening, mind-boggling - but because I wanted the site to be good enough, by my own standards. Today it is.

And then it will be time to tackle The Idea Emporium. Quite a different direction. Somehow or other I am leaving Zee's Cafe Cafe almost until the end of my projects. My guess: once I get started, it will be so big it will be a while before I emerge for anything else. Maybe not, of course. We will see.

I am seeing myself looking outward at me from the page. She is wondering. I am wondering. She had just taken a short break from doing. For me, this is both doing (writing the blog) and taking a break from doing (from doing all the work on the site that is needed to bring it out into the world). This writing in fact doesn't feel like work.

Does the other stuff feel like work? It involves loads of mundane details, and also masses of learning. It feels good to be getting the stuff done.

As always, welcome into my world.

         revving up
         ever making up stuff

elsas creativity blog -
     to bring you along
                           as I'm making up the site
                           feeling my way
                           like a jungle explorer
                           creepers and crawlers every which way
                           how to get through the day?
                           I couldn't say

where does it come from?
where des it go?
elsas creativity blog doesn't know

it records the words elsa writes
it stays the course
it blogs all night
it's delighted to be blogging
         leap frogging
                  over words
                  over muddles
                  over huddles
                           of word lugging trouble
                  over word puddles
                  and into word puddles

elsas creativity blog

                           is a faithful old horse
                                    that won't stop
                           it blop blop blogs

                           a faithful old horse
                                    stopping now and then in its course
                                           to chew its cud
                                                 letting ideas bud
                                    and then blogging alone
                                    blogging along
                                           clip clop blip blop

             elsas creativity blog
                     elsas creativity blog
                           elsas creativity blog

and then jogging along
       singing this song
               I come to a stop
                                             elsas creativity blog
                                             elsas creativity blog

keep it stopped?
or go giddy-up
                     like to a tired old horse
giddy-up, get going, don't stop, you'll get nowhere

don't know
what is best

today I write
as for the rest
