For me the biggest obstacle is the blank page. A man of unexploited possibilities, that isn't really my description but gets the point. So many ways to start, to flow, to be. After that, it all flows and I wonder when I read myself, where the heck did this came from. My novel doesn't have a title yet, but I don't worry. Babies are fine for a year or so without a name... It definitely has a personality. It's fresh and gossip-like. It's about romance?? I'm late though.
My peers doesn't sound so motivated. At least to my ears, they sound vaguely like "I'll do it". James will probably write a terror novel. It is well inside his comfort zone. I hope that will give him the extra energy to fulfill the challenge. It isn't as fun to do a bet, if I'm the only one taking it seriously. Again, just my perception. Allan is going for an interesting mix of literature branches. He'll write about something he knows and wants mildly to do. So who's your champion? J, who writes from the safe zone, A, who is in the border, or Me, who have never written about it and knows next to nothing about the topic?

I should be doing another thing, but what the heck :D Today it has been a day of doing nothing and yet receiving two thanks. Wow. On other news I've recently made two good bets. Actually three but don't want to shame a friend. Something about someone not being able to do a prodigious task. Though I'll love it to be possible... On a side note, I'm reexamining my conception of who is my friend. I found myself not having the staff high enough. I mean, I shouldn't be labeling them as such, if in my mind I don't care really about them. And in other situations, I'm finding that I shouldn't cover some of them, because they are haven of bad memes I consider harmful. Anyway the real reason I'm writing tonight is simple. The challenge for this month is NaNoWriMo, and I'm in! Good luck to all of us!

I'll neil here ;)

At fifth grade, I was programming in CLIPPER. Back then I had a dream of a game. It was a shell-based labyrinth. I'm almost confident an 'A' was the symbol to represent the player. Anyway, while I was developing the first level, it occurred to me, who's gonna play an ASCII based game??
If only I had knew better... sokoban, nethack... Thankfully I know better, I program for my pleasure, pride or plea.

Coming one day... WorD (World of ruby's Darkness) =D

ps. Don't ask about clipper I barely remember how to do the hello world...

Maybe it was the drinks, but I had a really good Friday, two days ago. Red Ale is truly my favorite beer. Blast came when a couple of guys from a tobacco co came to offer us a game. It was supposed to be challenging and blah blah... It was just Hanoi Towers problem. Piece of cake. Just 4 levels. If it is odd, leave it far. As a gift (and being myself a non-smoker) got a nice flashing plastic cube. Shiny. Those strange parties when there are equal quantities of genders, have something that needs to be protected, jeje.

You know your sitcom isn't doing so well, when you see that the cast is reducing numbers. For instance, Today, a friend didn't show up. I mean, it was there, but never had a chance to look his face. Either something on his head or giving me the back. Maybe the actor is sick... Something has to change.
