Busy Doing Something

Wednesday, March 8th, 2006

Got stuck back into editing FFSDiNoaN (no not a place next door to a place in Wales with a steam railway… First Fantasy Story Desperately in Need of a Name). Three pages crawled over. One more info dump moved into the new opening as an actual scene. Slowly it’s getting there.

Civ IV First Impressions

Tuesday, March 7th, 2006

I gave in and bought Civ IV on Saturday. Normally I don’t pick up a game till its dropped in price but I’ve been a big Civ fan for a long time. On the plus side its very pretty. On the minus side it didn’t seem very challenging (but I was playing on the easiest […]

Nothing the whole day through

Sunday, March 5th, 2006

I sorted out a cupboard I’d been meaning to tidy up. Got an entire bin bag of rubbish to put out from it. I’ve ironed most of my shirts (most of which hadn’t been ironed for a long time). A thoroughly domestic day of avoiding writing or preping the web site. I did manage to […]

Busy Doing Nothing

Sunday, March 5th, 2006

Amazing what a good ten hours sleep can do for the soul. Then life catches up and all those little chores need sorting out. Then its nearly midnight, nearly another day gone and nothing has really gone anywhere. Still tomorrow’s Sunday which is my writing day. With a good run at it I may get […]

I really should be sleeping…

Friday, March 3rd, 2006

I’m so tired I just used Kim’s blog’s title “I really should be writing…” as the title for a really innane post. I think I’ll go to bed instead and save the world from that.

Sky Colour Filter

Friday, March 3rd, 2006

Just been playing around and wrote a really simple Python script for Vue 5 Infinite that lets you apply a single colour filter to the sky. Instructions on how to use it are at the top of the script. http://www.mscaldwell.me.uk/works/vuepythonscripts/skyfilter.zip

Just when I wasn't Looking.

There I was not paying attention and get not just my first comment but two. I will now go away and write out 100 times “I must pay more attention”. Honest I will.

Once upon a time

Wednesday, March 1st, 2006

I did a rough edit on the first 1500 words of Untitled Fantasy and hammered out the first take on a new opening. I’m going to put it in front of some friends later to see what they think. Fingers crossed it builds up the suspense for later on.

You may start editing now

Wednesday, March 1st, 2006

Started on editing Untitled Fantasy Story today. Despite friends who’ve already read it liking the opening I’m having a problem with it. Starting in media res in a fantasy story without any real background set up is forcing me to info dump later on in the story. I don’t want to use flash backs or […]
