Burned Out

evil.jpg

Above is Evil. Know it when you see it.

It looks almost like it belongs here doesn’t it? Ok, maybe not. I just can’t get enough of some of those cool (and creepy/spooky/post-apocalyptic) old SAC pictures.

Being burned out on a Monday is never a good sign. Never a good sign at all.

I spent the latter half of the workday trying to coax an infinitely dimensionally expandable multidimensional perl hash (associative array for the to work properly. It turned out being more tricky than I hoped. I know how to do it now, but I used my daily allotment of initiative getting that far.

I found out today I’m supposed to be somewhere other than Harborfest the weekend of the 18-20. I really hope I can get out of it… there aren’t a lot of times I’m particularly happy to be in South Haven, but this is one of them… time will tell if I’m able to convince anyone else of this.

This last weekend, I had a lot of time to think, for better or worse. I made a conscious effort to let my mind wander, and I came to a rather unexpected idea: I think I may want to write a book. Everyone probably thinks this at some time or another, and with my track record of half-finished (or more often un-started) projects, it will probably never get started or finished. I did have some startlingly clear pictures of how it could begin though. At least i know I can be creative when I have to be.

With my novel (sci-fi) I have the the general story, outline and even some of the chapter openers written.

Haven’t touched it in 5 or so years.

No I don’t make my living writing books.

Beware writing a book can consume your life. But if you need to write do it or it will hurt worse than being poor and hungry.

Posting on /. (or elsewhere) or blogging when you get the creative urge, is much better for the bank account (if you have a real job) unless you write a bestseller.

Ever since a Kiwi was the first to fly a heavier than air poreewd machine [Richard Pierce - circa 1902/3] I have been waiting for someone with vision and guts to attempt a similar flight into outer space, the fantastic team at scaled are set to make universal history, poreewd by laughing gas and used rubber, where else in this universe could one be so awed!Kiwi JorThailandapr09 2004

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or
2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
