My desktop PC seems to have got semi fried over the extreme heatwave we’ve had here in the UK, despite my efforts to place a fan at it to help it cool down.
I do have a laptop however, but that is not my preferred method of writing, because it lags when I am typing – the laptop doesn’t like ninety words per minute and the “s” button often gets stuck and needs to be double clicked most of the time!
The lag is so bad that I am usually halfway through the second paragraph when the computer actually starts making the former words appear.
I also make more typos on a laptop than I do on my desktop, so my writing slows down by a little more than half when I do it on a laptop.
It’s making me rather moody.
I am harsh on myself when I have set a goal and things like this just makes me inconsolable.
P.S if my grandad was alive he’d be ninety nine today!
I always loved my PlayStation 1 when I was a teenager and one of the games I loved to play was Civilisation II, I am so excited to discover that Civilisation has since gone through another three generations which I didn’t know about until just now. 2016 has released Civilisation VI, for both PC and Mac, for me it is a must have.
I love games like these. I wish they would make a newer version of the game Black & White and perhaps EA Games could work on making Sims 4 as good as Sims 3 instead of taking bits out of it like they have.
As well as loving fantasy, horror, writing and art, I am a huge game buff, as you shall see in the future as I mention various new games I play.
For the last eight days I haven’t been writing as much as I should in regards to poetry and fiction, I hope that this following week will change. I should think about essays and real life less and fiction more; well I will try my best. I know you’re all hankering for the next pieces to my already shown short story snippets, well, I am unsure if I like either of them, but I’ll see what I will do over the next couple of weeks. I really should focus more on fantasy though and not sexual fantasy either that’s not what this site is supposed to be about.
Yes, OK, some forms of dark fantasy fiction can come under erotic horror and I do write that from time to time, but at the moment it seems to have become the dominating formula of this site and that’s not what I have intended.
In future I will write more about gargoyles and that sort of thing, which has been my intention since middle May and have I got around to it? No.
My friend Erin Cooper the artist is more on top of things than I am, she has already drawn a gargoyle for me to use on site, but I never got around to finishing the story I had planned for you all. I had planned to schedule it for the 10th of June, three weeks ago, I was sure I was going to finish it by then, I had saved drafts on here for it, but to no avail, it’s severely late and will take me at least another four days to finish if I start now. So that schedule has been cancelled and I’ve withdrawn the draft from this site and put it safe and snug on my PC desktop.
It’s such a lovely story too; I must get around to it.
