    On a writing binge today. Who would've thought that writing some random scene in my head that I wasn't sure about suddenly got the ball rolling. Wheeeeeee!!!

    Over the weekend I was corresponding with someone else who has experienced recalling one's future memories, for a long time in his case. He calls it "precall" and has written a book on the subject. He will be giving a talk to the Society for Psychical Research in London about it in a couple of months but I probably won't attend. We both agree that it's nice to know that we are not alone in this though.

    I wasn't expecting any of that or to encounter him, so maybe I'm losing the knack. Well, I did anticipate that it would only last six years and that's just about up now. Perhaps I can get back to my normal life then and that never involved being a writer.
    Do you have any feedback to give about beta reading? If so see HERE.

    I write in little chunks... so I writes scenes that go into a chapter that builds the whole of the book. It is actually a really nice way to write if you have a program that helps keep everything strait, which I do, it allows to to write what you have so if you have a brilliant ending scene of a moment between to characters you can write that out into it's own scene and then save it to the general chapter to which it belongs and if I need to move it later.. it is all nicely separate and easy to move.

    That sounds great, can I ask what program you use? Is there an obline version of it too maybe?
    Without temptation there can be no choice. Without a fall there can be no mercy.

    I've had my rent car for a week. It's a Jeep Patriot and I hate it. I will never buy one. I will recommend against them to anyone who asks. It feels cramped. The seats feel small, for example. My son rides shotgun and says he's too tall to see traffic signals when we're stopped at them. This was an alleged upgrade from what we should have gotten. I can't wait for the survey from the rental place. The only positive is I like the air flow on the vents. Oh, and it's a pretty metal flake red.
