A letter to Scrivener.

Dear Scrivener: You used to be the best program ever. I could keep track of everything with you. Then you started randomly deleting things and freezing. I'm am sorry, but I can't keep up this sham of a writer-word editor relationship. I am deleting you for Word 2013, and taking the documents. You can have the recycle bin.
Sincerely Justin.

TV Show randomness


.

Once Upon a time:
Season One was an interesting take on fairy tales  and the overall plot: Emma Swan, an "ugly duckling" who wants a family of her own, finds her parents, her long lost son, and saves them and  Storybrooke from the Evil Queen's curse. This was one of my favorite tv shows of the 2011-2012 Season.
Now season two has rolled around. Character derailment and flanderization abound, and I've grown tired of the little drama that could.

Revolution.
Revolution started with an intriguing plot, and had J.J Abram's as its director. This should be a winner, but the formulaic "Help Post Apocolyptia's various denizens and let's have a flashback" made me grow tired of this show quite quickly. Then the mid season finale-usually a month long break turned to three weeks.
Honestly? Had they just called it a season wrap at the end of the "mid-season" finale and then made us wait until next season I would have been fine with it, but this is just ridiculous.

That concludes this rant. Happy Trails.

What TV shows have you watched and have grown to love and hate?

What I been doing number 5? Yeah, I think it's five.

What I've been doing post five.

As readers of this blog know, I've shelved the work in progress I've been writing for, oh, five years or so.
So right now I'm working on a steampunky/school of magic idea, and a timey wimey novel. Yes timey wimey is a word. Just ask The Doctor.
The Timey Wimey novel is the one that has been on my header for awhile, so that one is going ok. The Steampunky one I'm working on is in the outline phase. No Victorian clothing though. I know Victorian clothing and Steampunk should go hand in hand, but since when have I stuck to conventions?

Any how. My second semester of college is going excellently, and I'm working on another project I"m not sure where it's going. And I'm looking for a video camera, cheap.
So what you have you been up to my loyal readers? Let me know in the comment section!

A conundrum or a writer confused.

First an apology:
I am sorry to all my readers for not updating either of my blogs for almost a month. The cause of this was a combination of connection issues and beginning my second semester of college. I plan on returning to my regularly scheduled randomness with this post.

This is a question I am posing to my readers, some of whom I hope are posters from absolute write. What do you do when you have too many ideas?
Right now I'm literally bouncing back and forth between this awesome steampunk idea and a fantastic idea for a time travel book. I just don't know which to tackle first. That's my post.

Oh and link of the day:



Enjoy, and as always, Happy Trails.

Justin
