The perfect blog post...

has been lost. It came to me just as I was drifting off to sleep last night, but when I woke up this morning, it was gone. Arrgghh. I'm still hoping it will come back to me. And yes, I know I should have made notes, but I have trouble enough sleeping without purposely waking myself back up to write something down *g*.

Yesterday I got some more research done, storing the results in a new programme I'm trying out, Surfulater. I'll post an official review over the next couple of days. So far, I'm pretty impressed :)

The plot is teasing me, which is kinda frustrating. I know where I want to go with my hero's story, but can't quite nail down the details yet. Once I have things more generally sketched out, I may just plunge into the story and see where things take me. Doing Nano last year proved that I'm able if not to actually fly into the mist, at least stumble around in it a bit with some measure of success *g*.

And Sean has finally pinpointed the problem with our high speed connection and figured out a work-around for now. Yay!

Not much else to report.

I'm a big proponent of diving in. It may not lead you exactly where you want to go, but at least it stimulates your creativity. Welcome back to civilization now that you have your Internet back.

I can't dive into a story. I've done it before and met with disastrous results. But I love how the writing process is so different for every writer. :-)

Oooh, new software! I used evernote and I think google has something that will save internet info.
Glad you're back!

I hate when you get a great idea at the wrong time and can't remember it later on. I did that the other day, some point my hero was supposed to make but then when I went to write it...nada. I sat in front of the computer squinting going 'come on...come on...I know you're in there..." Sigh...still hasn't come out though.

I hate when I have a great post idea and it leaves me before I can get it down.
