That day when the entire house is a computer is creeping up. Streaming the O’s while I work. How? Plugged the laptop into the TV via HDMI, made the TV an extended screen and put Firfox full screen on the TV, and WP fullscreen on the laptop. How wunnerful is dat?
I’m finding that the skating is a really good balance for the writing I’m doing right now. This book is a serious chess game and I’m used to these rather intense, charging forward kinda plots. They’re always complex, but getting all the pieces lined up has never been this much of a challenge.
The front end practically wrote itself, I mean, Wesley and JP meeting after all these years. Seneca. Rani. And a bit of Bijan. It was a lot of information to work in, but there was plenty of spice to keep it moving. Setting everything up for the climax has been challenging. The scenes were coming a few lines at a time.
If I put on a movie, or science or history thing like CJC has going in the background, I get caught up in its chess game because it’s easier. With the full-flight skating, it distracts and relaxes my forebrain for the few minutes of the skate, then there’s lag between to consider the next few lines. Since I started this three days ago, I’ve gotten more writing done than in the month before.
At this rate, I think it will pay to subscribe to the Ice Network!
