Posting Schedule Changes

This is not a story post. My computer's troubles are solved, but I've had to move in the meantime and do not currently have an internet connection where I live. I can visit the town library to get online, but they limit how much time one has on their computers at any given time -- only an hour. I can, lacking any blocks in my mind at the time, write a page in an hour, but there's other stuff I need to do online in that time so that my writing might not necessarily get done. As well, the library closes early on Fridays through Sundays, meaning I can't get to it in time on those days to really do anything.

That said, I'm changing my posting schedule. What's going to happen is that I'm going to write each day's page on my own computer, and then each Monday bring that week's accumulated writing down to the library on my flash drive to post. That means a minimum of 1750 words at a time, most likely more. This will continue until I either get a job to be more comfortable about getting my own connection, or I get so sick of having to come to the library that I damn the cost and get a connection anyway.

Barring complications, I'll have some story for everyone Monday.

Computer Issues

This is not a story post.

Having computer problems again. Posting this from a town library computer. I don't know what caused it this time, and it's a completely different error from last time. I hope it gets fixed soon, because I don't want another long hiatus like last time. It wasn't even that my computer was down for a month, but just two weeks -- it took me another two to get back into daily updating. Getting knocked out of it really screws with me. The library computers don't let me have enough time to guaranteed get a page written up each day, so no luck here, or I'd have done it last time.

This is not a story post. I'm having computer troubles and may not be able to post anything for a day, or for a week, or for a month. That's why yesterday's page was missed, as well. So, indefinite hiatus. But I will be coming back to this. The question is only of when.

Brief Hiatus Possible

This is not a story post. I've got an extremely painful toothache at the moment that is demanding an emergency visit to a dentist today, but my normal dentist is on vacation. So, the person covering for her may have to just prescribe me some kind of painkillers instead of performing any kind of oral surgery, especially as I have already had several teeth removed previously and taking any more is a drastic step -- and a root canal doesn't just happen on the spot. The pain is serious enough that I took 6 aspirin in 2 hours (recommended dosage: 2 every 4 hours) with no signs of change; all I can do on my own is keep the area numb with cold water in my mouth, and that's starting to fail.

If no oral surgery happens, there's a chance I may get some painkillers of the "make you wonky" sort, and if that happens there's no chance I'll be able to do much of anything, this included. If the situation is sufficiently altered in time for me to write a page for today, I will do so, but even so I'm reserving today at least as a probable loss, and I may be worthless for even longer. So, fairly warned.

This is not a story post.

Yes, I missed yesterday's. It will be explained shortly in the other blog.
