I tried to use my phone to post on LiveJournal's mobile site earlier today. The first entry of my writing progress this year... But the site/my phone is really wonky, and if the cursor leaves the field where I'm typing, I can't get it to go back to where I left off — it just goes to the beginning, and cannot be moved.
I spent about twenty minutes typing that damn thing out, and it was turning out pretty good, in my opinion...
So if I try to attempt this sort of thing again in the future, I'm going to have to post by bloody email... But really, what I want — what I prefer — is just to have a dedicated program (I fucking hate the term App
— I grew up calling them Programs
, because that's what they are! You Program them to do things. You fill out an Application, and then you never get the job, so...) from which I can get my things done.
I don't like have multiple tabs open on my browser, because I'm used to working on my ancient iBook which has a smaller hard drive than my iPod. I need to make sure I don't crash anything, or have to wait for the better part of an hour for something to open up, or load... And that's why I've been loyal to LiveJournal, because they have a Mac Program that I can open up, create a post, and then fire off. No having to worry if I have an internet connection, because I can save stuff, and there are little shortcuts built into the interface so I can add in links and various other stuff without having to remember if I'm doing the code right.
But that's in the past now... Just needed to get that out of my system — and really, that's all I'm doing with these posts. Letting off a little additional Creative Steam that has built up now that I'm back into Writing Mode. Also, a way of keeping myself accountable to keep up my writing.
I had left off right in the middle of a chapter when I took my "break", and I was really surprised that I was able to pick it right back up again. Wasn't hard at all. That more than anything made me feel like a Real Writer.
Also started typing up the stuff I have hand written in my notebooks, which I'm going to release as blog posts
as I go through them. Posting songs as well — gonna start a podcast feed for those.
That's all I got right now. Don't wanna spend too much time looking back — need to keep writing. So that's what I'm going to do right now... This week's writing done to:
