It’s April and I’m a fool, so today’s my day to shine! A whole week of gentle but unstrained new writing! I might attribute it to the change in the weather, but for the shrieking blizzard we had on Tuesday. The change of sunlight’s angle, maybe.

  • Still blocked.
  • Damn it.

The Pilot appears to be turning into my standard St. Patrick’s Day pen. I used it this time because I wanted a broad point to show off the glimmer in the ink. In this, I was disappointed– there’s no sign of any metallic element in anything I wrote that day. I hope the wee folk weren’t offended.

  • Repolishing and resubmitting a couple of things.
  • Not getting the Moonman pages on my site finished
  • Nothing as grand as last week’s transformation.
  • See below.

The plan was to get that bit of site updating sorted out today. The reality was the gentle, silent death of our wifi router demanding a run to somewhere a replacement could be got. Fortunately, the amazingly elderly (it’s thirteen years old) Apple Airport the dead router replaced is still able to toss packets about, so Son’s online classes aren’t mysteriously cancelled.

I hope. I left the house before anyone else was up (bar one cat), so I don’t know if Wife has made sense of the hasty scribble I left by way of explanation. Maybe I should check…

  • Consulting on someone else’s creative writing.
  • Reworking the end of “Until Regrets Take the Place of Dreams” following a positive rejection note after short-listing.
  • Three pages, ten thousand suggestions.
  • LISTEN TO EDITORS, KIDS

This week may not have been the full fires of creation flowing through the grooves of my brain, but it was the closest to that I’ve been in a while. This is encouraging.

  • A great deal of squeezing the internet trying to shake loose useful Moonman information.
  • Thinking VERY HARD about things I want to write.
  • Fixing something at the Regular Job that broke because I was left out of an email chain in October.
  • Less than I could have wished.
  • Too much think, not enough do†
  • Most of yesterday’s lunch

† I take a little solace from this article in The Guardian which indicates that I’m not the only one suffering from fatbergs in my writing infrastructure.

Fun in Darkness

Posted by Dirck on 19 February, 2021

So… short week, huh? I had forgotten that little fact entirely pretty much from lunch-time Tuesday through to head hitting the pillow last night. Thus, no update yesterday. I’ll take it on to the bottom of this entry. There’s not much difference to last week, as my tubes are still clogged, although I did have a couple of revelations in the direction of rehabilitating some things suffering from their author’s white male POV, one of which is that novel I spent so long on.

But first, the fun stuff. What’s the most fun you can have in a dark room? Watching old movies, of course! I recently read a tweet from someone who was very disappointed, after a lifetime of watching films no older than 1980 (I think that was the arbitrary cut-off– possibly 1970), by the experience of watching Citizen Kane.

Oh, really? Only the barest understanding of the language, and you found the lecture boring?

I, happily, understand the language of old films (even if I sometimes make fun of their tropes), and it troubles me that so many people dismiss them out of hand.

So, today’s jollity– a film to help you understand the language, and someone else making fun of old film tropes.

Now, here’s that disappointing update:

  • Third draft of “Hobb’s Landing”.
  • Faffing about.
  • Less than I could have wished, again.
  • A great deal too much.

The faffing about has been necessary, but… well, it’s hard to apply resolution to pry up an edge of writing block when rushing out to get necessary household items.

On the silver lining side, I have no deadlines, so the lack of output isn’t causing actual trouble to anyone else.
