conjecture

Another Laundromat night. Ran into a gay black man reading the book “Nigger.” At least I conjecture he was gay. I know he was black, and the book was his, so it’s pretty certain he was reading it. Unless he was just looking at the pictures… Which it might.

My guess is two thousand words more, although the way I’m writing, I’m not going to stick with that. Probably more. It wouldn’t surprise me if I’m able to pump out 4k-6k more.

I just realized that I need a title for the book. Oh well. I can get that later.

Lost work…

Posted by brenatevi on March 28, 2009

Bugger, bugger, bugger! I normally redundant out the arse, with at least 4 copies of my story on at any given moment (Treo, Mini, Laptop, Google Docs) but somehow, despite copying the story between my Treo and Mini… I lost the last edit of my story. It wasn’t that much, maybe 200 words max, but I completely lost my train of thought. I can’t remember what I was thinking. So, I try this again.

Too much ranting

I will have more written by tonight, but I had something to get off my chest on my evil blog, and now I’m just tired.

I’m really digging the Mini now that I’ve changed the keyboard map. Didn’t write last night because of my angst, I still think I might finish Act 1 tonight. If not, it’s all good.

Heading into the homestretch

Quality night tonight. I’m thinking I might try to finish Act 1 before I leave vacation. 3 more nights to work on it. I am going to start rough drafting out the next act after I’m finished, although I might post a pdf of the rough draft for all the world to see. Have to decide.

Laundromat and bluetooth blues

Getting ever closer to the end of Act 1, and then I have to figure out what I’m going to do next: edit Act 1, or rewrite act 2. I think I’m going to head into Act 2, because I might have to do more rewrites in Act 1, depending on how it goes (although I feel that I won’t have to change much; I feel that it’s rough but still good stuff.)

Oh, and no one bothered me while I was doing laundry. But I got distracted when my bluetooth headphones started giving me problems, so I could have gotten more writing done if I had just ignored the headphones.

To curse or not to curse, that is the question

For me, cussing is a natural thing, but sometimes I’m not sure if I should write like that, especially in my novel. Since I seriously doubt I’ll ever try traditional publishing, I guess I shouldn’t care. Huh, never mind…

And a chase scene isn’t going to happen when I thought it was. Instead, Kyle gets his head shrunk by the Devil and Phil.

And this is despite the fact I spent the entire night beating my head against Linux. Writing and Masochism, a match made in Hell.

I wrote something, but started writing too late to do much good.
