This is my two main characters' soundtrack. This is exactly how I feel them.
The worst thing about losing access to PayPal is losing access to eBay.
Sure, almost everything can be bought off AliExpress, but still.
There was a Japanese seller on eBay, from whom I used to buy pens and inks. I still have some stocked, but inks have this tendency to run out eventually. :)
Fuck PayPal and its unreasonable demands. :(
The first two pages of Clara's teen experiment are starting to look like a real thing. Although bar 30 with its 11 (well, 10) quick repetitions of one note might not be actually doable on my upright #piano. I will keep trying, of course, but who knows.
Now I'm kind of stuck on bar 36, which has a tricky rhythmic pattern that I've never encountered before. I've spent lots of time trying to crack it, and at some point even got it right, more or less :) Alas, I was not able to repeat this success.
I'm piecing this scene together like like a jigsaw puzzle. Even had to create a separate temp file for keeping bits of dialogue and descriptions that I liked, but which wouldn't fit.
Lately I've been #writing using the "dialogue first" scheme. It turned out to be the best way for me to keep track of the events in a scene.
Alas, this discovery came at a price of having to rewrite a lot in order to unfuck the plot. 😅
What do you say about this, Ilon Mask? *gg*
( You might want to turn on subtitles. The song is not translated, but I can do it here if someone is interested. A very beautiful cyberfolk song. :) )
I have finally decided to purchase a 22'' monitor for my tiny home office.
I've been putting it off for a long time, hoping that the covid situation will be resolved by the end of summer at the latest. So I've been working on a laptop since March, thinking it was temporary.
Now it's November, and the end is nowhere in sight.
The sales person at the shop obviously didn't think I'd make a purchase. It was early morning. :) After paying, I wished him good luck with sales, and he said thanks. :)
Considering my skating season opened on the icy streets after the Thursday rain. I kept thinking that I could not fall, because I had my phone in the front inside pocket and I couldn't afford to smash it. :)
But seriously. They have mostly cleaned the roads during the two previous days. However, sidewalks are clear Olympic ice. Especially after yesterday, when it was +2 during the day, and now it's -5.
Lots of broken trees, such a pity. Lot's of torn cables. Mother Nature was harsh. :(
