Writing this from my new phone. Very different feeling from typing on a keyboard; I’m not sure how well I could write fiction on this. Maybe it’ll be different once I get more used to it and the motions become more of a reflex. I’ve never heard of anyone saying that they couldn’t write if they had to type, after all, and I guess this is similar.
Missed the bus this morning–it came a minute early–and John gave me a lift to the Transitway. Confess I was grinning like an idiot over being able to text him from the bus. Currently still playing around; I think the biggest difference between this and a typewriter is the inability to touch-type.
More later. Probably need to decide if those 200 words a day can be in separate posts.
Light of my life appears to have gotten my Kobo working, which is wonderful. My favourite short story on it came off Smashwords, and I was getting really frustrated with not having it handy.
(Oh, there’s a word count on this! Handy.)
Taking advice on practicing time management; seeing if I can get down 200 words a day, reliably, until the end of October.
Other concerns ATM: very much behind on Excolo roundup, not enough sleep, top-to-bottom housecleaning due by Thursday night, work screw-up, general failure to write.
Writing a story with a friend, and between our schedules it’s bogging down. Need to talk to her to find out how she feels about my writing pieces of it alone, or stories that use the set-up we’ve created. I can see her disliking the idea, although I don’t think it’s likely. I cannot see being comfortable with just going ahead with it without asking her.
Also for consideration: am I using this as an excuse to procrastinate?
I have a handful of ideas for Iolace, and two stories. Unsurprisingly enough, neither of them is written yet.
Trying to coordinate my various journals, accounts, feeds, and any other ways that I track what people are doing online. I like having them, but having them all over the place is not useful. Not entirely sure how or if this will fit in with that; I’m hoping that if I organize everything else, this will naturally settle into its own niche.
