This may sound crazy, but I'm going to try it.
Ten days ago, I started writing a project I've been wanting to do. Right now I'm at 24k words, which is record time for me (thanks, shutdown!)
I've got a schedule situated, to do a chapter each morning and evening starting tomorrow, and then finish the rest of the book this weekend now that I've outlined and storyboarded it tonight. Might be another 30k? It's all first draft, so what happens will happen. I've never done it like this before; usually it takes me months to do a first draft because I write complicated plots, lots of sub-plots, 450 pages monstrosities, but for this short, simple "kids vs monster" book, it's been straightforward.
Wish me luck, 'cause first shift starts in 5 and a half hours!
eh... I'm more of a Roger Waters fan.This is an epic win for me but I don't think many people would find it so.
One of my Tweets was liked by David Gilmour of Pink Floyd!!! Holy fucking shit! DAVID FUCKING GILMOUR!! Pink Floyd has been my favorite band for DECADES and this is like HOLY SHIT!
He didn't retweet it or anything. No follow or anything like that, but DAVID GILMOUR READ MY TWEET!
I noticed that as well. But he has a person that runs his social media accounts for him named Polly so I wondered if your account could be verified if it wasn't the actual person.Dude...the account wasn't even verified.
If you want people to stop making old man jokes, you gotta learn this stuff.
I read that the opposite way, that you were saying she'd get used to not getting promotions.The intimation was that you are the sort of person employers would want to give raises to, and thus it would happen frequently enough for you to become more accustomed to it.
Haha, I mean, I read it as the assumption that I’ll have jobs, work jobs, that give promotions - which I don’t think I will. I think I’ll work weird odd jobs to make ends meet, maybe eventually have a partner who makes enough that I can contribute by selling my artwork and not have a ‘real’ job. That’s what I meant.I read that the opposite way, that you were saying she'd get used to not getting promotions.
Oh shit! And then there were two!
Ehhhh I'm not seeing it.I recently got invited to open for an all-women standup showcase. The lady who invited me is a comedian that I really respect, and she's been at two of the three open mics at which I performed. It's become a hobby for me, and I'd planned on attending them every now and then to just hone my writing/comedy skills and push myself. I never imagined someone would want me for a show. It went over well. I got a lot of laughs, and when I didn't, I had some pretty effective "well that sucked" comments.
The best part of this is that, while looking over my notes to build a 7-minute set, I realized that I've compiled about thirty minutes of material! I hadn't kept track of how many pages of notes/sound files I'd accumulated. So yes, I'm definitely gonna keep doing this. I don't believe anything any bigger will come of it, but I like what it's done for my confidence and my flexibility.
