just wanted to share this paragraph I wrote for nanowrimo:
The toys on her floor mostly consisted of plastic bricks, which had the predictable effect of turning most of her room into a caltrop-ridden death trap. She, for her part, had a *system*. Which is to say, she had a path cleared that was just wide enough for her to walk from her door to her bed without subjecting herself to untold amounts of pain that any potential visitors would most likely experience. The rest of her room was fair game, with the little bricks of pure agony scattered around like she was expecting a cavalry charge.
been getting some nice work done on my forum software project, ECF. it now uses Argon2id instead of PBKDF2 for password hashing, I added an optimization for posts, simplified some stuff, added thread view counting... not many new features but it's moving along
though as usual I have no idea what I want to work on next
when writing in the flow, it's easy to get lost in the endless expanse of words and clauses, drifting from one to the next as they spring forth like so many snowflakes in a frigid winter blizzard
but editing, I comb it over and over like a middle aged priest. check it all two or five times. every word honed to perfection, every sentence a finely tuned machine thrumming with power, every paragraph at its full potential. it's not any less artistic, but margins for both error and profit are slim
debating whether to head down to the post office or not... it closed a couple hours ago and it's unlikely that the RAM I got would fit in my tiny PO box, unless it was put into one of those keyed delivery boxes, so getting my RAM doesn't seem likely
buuuut it would be a good excuse to go grab some food...
