I could be at home playing Temple of Elemental Evil, but no, I’m at a Java class.
This week we have been promised that we would learn some actual Java. I’m not holding my breath. Mind you, I have learned a couple of interesting things already, most of which I have forgotten already.
This is the last of the 5 courses I need to get the Enterprise Java Developer certificate from ‘gonq, and I can’t wait. It will mean nothing, but at least I didn’t pay for all of it. Which reminds me, I own my Mum $500. I should get that to her soonish. I have a feeling she won’t accept it, so I might have to sneak it in somehow.
I’ll find a way.
I also picked up Shadows of Undrintide(?) and I plan on starting that soon too.
I’m not writing. I should be writing, but I’m not. I have failed to get 50,000 words. However, what I have gained is a little cooler(in my mind at least).
I have come up with a way to write a novel(ish), do it at a reasonable pace, do it in any order I choose, and share it will you all, all in one convienent fashion.
Not gonna tell you anything more than that, because it could all blow up in my face.
Actually, hell with it.
Here’s what’s going down:
I started a character with the whole NamoWrimamama thingy and I want to continue with the idea. Problem is of course, is that I don’t want to write a book, not in a novel sorta way anyway.
So I’ll blog it.
I know, it’s the Wil Wheaton way of doing things, but I have to admit I like the idea and I think it’s gonna work.
This way it’ll sorta be short stories, something I prefer reading anyway. So I’ll write what I want to read. Seems fair.
The way I figure it, I’ll update every month with what I have. Of course, that could be nothing, but at least the updates will be consistant.
It could also just be edits/re-writes/spelling changes, that sort of thing. Nothing new, just updated.
And of course this won’t happen until the new year. The updates that is, I could start writing at anytime.
The way I’ll be writing it will be on the Forum. However, no one will see it but me ^_^
The advantages of having one’s own server.
This way I can log in from anywhere, do a little bit of writing, and then log off and (most likely) go back to work.
I’m going to try and avoid doing it at work, since that’s likely to get me fired, which would make me miss rent payments, and then get me killed.
So that’s my plan.
Don’t know how it’s going to work out, but probably better then the 50,000/month thing. Mind you, it could end up being 50,000 words/month, who knows?
