Notes from 20101129

  • Joni and I just adopted a new (new to us) Australian cattle dog this weekend. Peppercorn the dog definitely is used to flying solo and having the complete run of the house. Puppies are (and will always be) an adventure. Training a dog without the use of treats or fear requires an extreme amount of patience, but the results are well worth the effort.

  • A few pages for the new novel are starting to turn over (albeit slower than expected). Writing has to become a state of mind for the writer. Being drawn to the page requires a certain degree of passion for the project. Being forced to writer defeats the purpose and ultimately cheats the project. Professional writers certainly end up writing on a schedule and only an endless reserve of passion for the work allows that compromise.

  • Stream of consciousness writing produces strange and interesting results. Going back and editing prose generated from a stream of consciousness writing session can be challenging.

  • Over the course of the last few months, I feel that the amount of interesting video content on Netflix has disappeared. Maybe my moving watching tastes are changing.

  • The new dog had a successful visit to the local veterinary clinic. Queensland heelers appear to be both intelligent and hearty. The test the veterinary technician ran to determine if the new dog had heartworms was negative. Overall, the morning seems to be rather peaceful and otherwise uneventful.

  • All of the cyber Monday emails seem to be delivering on the promise of specific sale items targeted at laser shoppers. If you know what you want or can be easily persuaded, then the deluge of cyber Monday online deals could be just what you are looking for both now and in the future.
