Keeping the Head Down

This entry is part 50 of 103 in the series Daily Scribble Reports

Currently rather frustrated so will bury my head in work and not talk to anyone. I don’t want to be a snappish dragon.

Writer’s Social Therapy

I don’t want to be a snappish dragon
I don’t want to snarl and blow
Say nothing, I know, if I can’t say it nicely
So down in the scribbles I go #

Had a chat that perked me up a good bit. Yay.


Got working on Tracing Trouble and decided that nothing I was writing was working. Which is a pain. I'm about ready to cull through the twenty-two versions of Dowse and Bleed to figure out how I got from point A to point B, but I think I should probably just find a different way to go with this and get going.

Yeah. Sure. :rolls eyes at self:

Never mind. Very frustrated. Tried a few other stories: collaboration, Splintered, other K&T stories— No dice.


Yesterday, agreed to give a SF thriller a whirl, solely because of the SF not the thriller bit. It's called iSeal and shall hang out in my email inbox until I'm ready to get to it. My to be read pile is getting ridiculous. :grins:

Didn't even read anything today except stuff I'm trying to write and an SEO book for/at work. Required reading, but lovely. I actually want to learn about SEO.

So no recreational reading today. Pity that.


When all else fails, format. Left off on page 38 of justification on Dowse and Bleed.

Technical Difficulties

Ran out of time to do a full scan and the quick virus scan turned up nothing. I have a plan. Tomorrow's dance card is getting mighty full.


Managed to add another 166 words to the front end of Tracing Trouble. I really do need to rename it. I'll get there. I don't expect to get any more writing done tonight. Naturally, I'll update if anything changes.
