Three Months

So what have I achieved in my first three months? Well, I'm on track with sending letters, I've finished six out of 101 things and I've read a fair few books. That's a good start, right?

Disappointingly, I've not been able to write a single piece of flash fiction yet. Whenever I sit down I just dry up, even when I'm strict with myself (maybe not strict enough) and set myself deadlines like during National Novel Writing Month. But I have ideas, I have more and more ideas every day. I have titles. I have characters and names. All I have written is a single page of typed A4 called "Seven Cigarettes," an unfinished zombie story.

But! That will all change! I promise! Coming soon...

...a young boy shows off his science fair project, a working model of a green and blue planet complete with orbiting body...

...extracts from the diary of Dracula's fourth bride...

...and Ethical Conditions, a story about the galactic gourmet food market...

All to appear here - exclusively! - in the coming weeks, here on Racing Entropy!

(was that "exclusively!" a bit over the top? I can never tell...)

The "exclusively" is brilliant!

Good progress! I was without internet for almost three weeks, and got some stuff done during that time, so now I have to update my mission journal!

Is it like staring at the "blank page" type of anxiety?
