What Happened Last Week?
As I predicted, I had a lot of ultimate frisbee things last week. Winter A/B league fully started, so I had some of the schedule and “B” division teams to post. I also had a couple updates for our yearly New Year Fest tournament. I played pickup twice. Dave, who was the co-founder of the pickup game I’m now running, is in town. He retired to Michigan a few years ago and is snow-birding this February/March.
A Good Moment
Friday pickup was again a bit of a highlight. I didn’t play very well, but we had a good turn out, my body was feeling good, and the weather was pretty perfect. (My life is so boring.)
- Coffee with milk may have an anti-inflammatory effect – Hmm, maybe I should start putting a little milk in my coffee.
- Viral Videos of Alleged Vaccine Side Effects – “A” occurs and “B” occurs. This does not necessarily mean that “A” and “B” are connected.
- Yuga Labs Claims Its Bored Apes Have Copyright, Even if It Never Filed for Protection – The more interesting question is: are images that are created by an algorithm from pre-made assets copyrightable anyway?
Some writing-related links:
- 6 Lessons Learned From 4 Years of Writer’s Block – I’ve called the last few years a writing hiatus, but I suppose block is a word for it too. Funnily enough, I can see a parallel between “plot” blocks and “creative” blocks. Both can involve a twisting of logic into something that doesn’t feel like reality and is wrong.
- Novel subplots – Not sure I agree with everything here, but that’s how writing advice goes.
I’m not really where I wanted to be at the end of January, but that’s what happens when a week and a half gets eaten by apathy. I intend to continue working on my NaNoWriMo project. I have two scenes left to rewrite and a whole lot of new material to add. It’s more like rewrite a scene, add a bunch, rewrite a scene, add a bunch, so I’d really like to have both of those rewrites out of the way by the end of this week.
