Arbitrary Odometer Reading
Posted by Dirck on 30 December, 2016
I’m actually lounging at home right now. However, since we do like to have end-of-year wrap-ups, I’ll offer the following:
- I still quite like fountain pens, even if I’m not so overt and vocal about it as once I was;
- I can use inks other than Diamine any time I want, really, it’s totally under control;
- I do not at all like knee-displacing, but apparently am pretty good at recovering from it;
- This has been a pretty good year for my creative aspect, as revealed by the stats at close of play yesterday:
Some will point out that these numbers fall well short of the novel I mean to have done in rather less than a year… and I have also noticed that. However, nearly 190 of those first draft pages are the novel in question, and the completed word-count was done between spasms of first-draft writing. It’ll be fine, I’m sure. Oh, I should add to the year’s roster of accomplishments, in the light of the fact that I keep track of stats like that– I’ve avoided involuntary commitment again for the whole year! What lunatic could wish for more?
Since it is also Friday, here’s a film which has zero connection whatever to the changing of the calendar. It does, however, suggest a human urge to leave time-resistant artifacts.
