It's been a bit migrainy which is unusual these days - because I'm taking meds to prevent migraines, but, the thing with that is, it doesn't stop them completely. Nothing does. That would take magic. (When volcanoes erupt and other things interfere with … Continue reading Writing music:
I just watched the season four finale, I think I'm going to need a minute. That was epic television. Not sure how to go from that to regular programming.

Kinda how I feel today. Working. Knowing I can write without worrying about random shutdowns. Knowing I can write without having to use a fucking mouse - which 100% kills my stuffed wrist. Having a working trackpad is a pure delight!So this morning, I'm writing. I've written over 2K so far, because it's easy. I … Continue reading Limitless
