A Month in the Life, June


It is July. I know. but that seems to be the theme overall in June: a bit of slacking. There was art, there was work, there was a lot of things. But there was mostly slacking.

So did I do 30 things? one for each day of June? I don’t know. I haven’t counted yet…

I did break a personal milestone, a person barrier if you will. My Doctor Who story is now over 50,000 words. Now that isn’t quite full length novel, but it isn’t quite finished yet. Still it is a milestone i’ve always looked at and wanted. Now I have it. And i am writing the last two episodes and still loving it each step of the way.

Now I haven’t been posting it (slacker!) because I’ve been bogged down in presentation. It is easy to be bogged down in presentation. I like TiddlyWiki, a lot even, but I am not sure I like it for the Who stuff. Still I should be posting, rather than waiting. And I will. I have a few ideas, but I’ll work and post.

I did get a few shots with a new camera. I spent the better part of two weeks fretting over a new camera. I wanted one and went from wanting a massive DSLR rig I could not afford, to a smaller one, to eventually a Nikon Coolpix P300 which has all the manual features, but fits easily in my pocket. Here is a shot from the first day playing with it.


July will be a month of less slacking. I have a new camera. I have more energy. And most dangerously, I have some ideas.
