nothing in particular

I found a neato website. It shows a word at the top of the screen and then gives you sixty seconds to write about it. 

I think it's neat. Sixty seconds, a random word, a little blurb of writing. Perhaps it is the equivalent of a literary one night stand (one minute stand?) but there's something freeing about it. The blurb doesn't really matter. The word doesn't really matter. Just the act. 

Which, put that way, it does make it sound like a one night stand.

Dude. I may just be a literary whore.

when it rains it pours

ah it's been awhile

For one thing I got horribly sick for like two weeks. Sick to the point where I honestly don't remember much of it. 

Needless to say not much writing got done during that period.

And then when I was finally feeling better my glasses broke. Right across the bridge. And, because I am that broke (I mean come on, I'm a writer, a college student and my job is a crappy minimum wage sales position [have I ever mentioned that I hate sales?]) I totally would have been rocking the scotch tape look but I couldn't find the other half. 

So after a day and a half of not being able to see (my eyesight is really bad) I got new glasses, which, I am told look quite good on me.

But in the aftermath of these things I have been quite productive. 

I have even (gasp!) figured out a few major plot points. Crazy concept, I know.

Now if I could only get from point A to point G and then we'd be in business ^_^;
