I've decided to be a bit more proactive in my writing, which has paradoxically meant that I've not been writing on the blog as often as I'd like.
With a slight nudge from a fellow doomsday enthusiast on Twitter, I remembered this idea I had a few years ago. It took me a bit to hunt down the file, but eventually I found it and I've been working on it since. I don't want to go into too much detail, but I will say that it is non-fiction and that it is post apocalyptic.
And that I've somehow written sixteen thousand words in the past three days...
I don't know what it is but I am really excited about this project, it's definitely not as big as other things I'm working on but I'm hoping that some of the other members of the Twitter post apocalyptic community will get a kick out of it. This is definitely a speed of writing that I've never attained before. I hit 6600 words today. I've never even come close to that before. I don't know, maybe because it's non-fiction? I've done university papers, of course, but I've never written something non-fiction that was intended for publication.
We'll see how I go over the coming days. I'd originally given myself the month of October to work on this little project and get a rough first draft out, but it looks like I might be a little ahead of schedule. Which is never a bad thing mind you, gives me plenty of time to go over it and give it a polish or two.
Besides all that, I haven't really been up to much. Just working the dead end job, hitting the gym and doing this TESOL course. Things are all progressing rather well, nothing is really going wrong and it's all relatively boring to be honest.
Oh, I guess this is worth mentioning, it's in the ballpark of what this whole blog is meant to be about. Although I haven't really been playing video games since my spinal injury, I did pick up Fallout Shelter today. I haven't played it since a week before Fallout 4 was released, and it's really grown as a little iOS game. They've added in a whole mess of features and it's really quite fun now. Check it out if you've got some time to kill!
I should probably head to bed, I've been staring at this screen for days. I'll make a point to get back to the blog little more often, but I'll probably keep the posts a bit shorter until I finish this project.
