    Laptops, and what (maybe) not to do with them

    Things I learned today (some of them were learned the hard way):

    - Upgrading a laptop three times at once is a either the dumbest idea ever or a big adventure filled with sunshine and rainbows, depending on how much you like having to repeatedly take apart your laptop

    It's that time again...

    Not a whole lot to report, other than that chapter 15 of Sunrise got another 1000 words or so, and more importantly, got finished and has been off to the pre-readers for a few days now. The editing process is now moving along, so that's good.

    Progress accountability on Sunrise

    Not gonna be a long post, but I wanted to record all official-like that I am 2600 words into chapter 15, and will probably be further than that by the time I quit writing for tonight (yes, it's like 5am right now. And yes, I'm still awake and writing because what am I doing with my life?).

    I've got to start doing posts like this...

    Regular accountability posts, I mean.

    I haven't gotten nearly enough writing done these past... oh, couple years or so. And that's on me. I'm not going to get into excuses, since I don't feel that I really have any valid ones. No medical problems, no dire circumstances, no my-world-is-imploding crises.

    The big thing on my plate making me start this:

    I wrote a thing for a collaborative story! And it (my part) is about Best Former Villain!

    Yes! First thing I've had published on FimFic in a while, though not for lack of trying – Sunrise is still incoming... someday...

Just broke 1,000 views on First! · 6:17am Mar 6th, 2014

... And only, what, a couple years or so after getting it featured on Equestria Daily, too. :P

Of course, this is if I ignore the DeviantArt presentation of the story, which is closing in on (but not quite at) 7,000 views, most of which came from a large sudden spike due to that aforementioned EqD exposure.

It's a strange feeling, even so. When you finally see a four-digit number roll around, it gets me thinking about the future. Maybe someday I'll write something that truly smashes things open for me in terms of having an audience and then when I hit 10,000 views, this will seem like a small blip of a landmark. And I'll be honest, I would love to see that happen. I would love that kind of attention because it would probably mean a whole lot of feedback and discussion instead of the tiny trickle I get by comparison. It would mean seeing a real metric of success in terms of smoothed out trends of favorites and thumbs-up versus thumbs-down versus time, instead of the irregular random one by one hits.

Maybe most of all it's because I'm so shy in real life. I can hardly talk to people, but online I entertain thousands at a time and not blink or feel self-conscious at all. I admit it, I kind of want the spotlight, and seeing 1,000 views roll around, I guess I just feel like I've finally gotten a little tiny bit of it.

Here's to 1,000 people thinking this was at least worth taking a peek at. Thanks. I hope you liked it.

... Now if only I could trick convince people to read and provide feedback on my other work, too...
