That would be a great solution if I knew where mine is right now. Undecided

RE: Ranting corner
So a while ago I was complaining about writers block. Well now I'm complaining that I spend too much time writing.
I spent like 3 fucking hours last night writing by the time I checked the time it was after 5am. ><

What Im working on now I've put so much planning into it, by far my most planned book ever, and it's making the writing so much easier.
I've got a rough timeline of the first half-ish of the book. I've got all the major characters, their backstory, how they relate to each other. I've got a world map to visualize where everything takes place. I've written a history of before when the book takes place. Including parents and grandparents of the main characters. I've got a rather branching family tree going actually. Not including non-family characters. I've got all the loactions, a history on all the locations. Hell, I've even dated all this shit including birthdays for everyone including characters in the history of before when it all takes place who aren't even in the book. I've got pictures of what the characters roughly look like. I've even got pictures of what locations roughly look like. This shit is motherfucking planned to a motherfucking tee. I've got fucking twists, sabotage, characters being killed off, when characters are introduced. It's all fucking there. And so I recently started writing the actual story and so yea, it's flowing smoother than octomom's eighth kid. Fuck me I wrote so much last night this shit is retarded and is gonna be a bitch to rewrite and edit. I'm gonna need way more exercise books, this one has taken over, all others are well and truly on the back burner.

RE: Ranting corner
So my employer only pays our contracts over 9 months; they refuse to spread the paychecks over 12 months. That means you have to carefully budget until we get paid again on October 1st (requires a month of teaching before being paid). So I have 109 days until I'm paid again...I was going to have about 3k more to help out, until the university canceled my class. I've got enough in the bank to pay all the bills that I'm scheduled to have until October 1st and then about $300-$400 per month to eat, put gas in the car, cover doctor co-pays, etc. So I come home today, open up the mailbox, and there's something from the hospital...oh great what do I owe them now? Why a month's worth of my food budget because my insurance isn't fully covering the sleep study I need to get a new CPAP machine so I can stop breathing (literally) hundreds of times a night.

Need to think of a witty signature.
