Stardate, um, twelve, twelve, twelve, see owner’s manual. It’s in Ferengi, which no one reads, but we have figured out fixing the clock has something to do with latinum and earlobes. *cough* Regardless, I’m not entirely certain where we are. Allow me to explain.
Two weeks ago Confused Doctor’s Kid, upset over nearly being left behind on NaNoMia decided that the smart thing to do, because we all know how smart he is. Really. He tells us all the time. Anyway, he decided to get a little payback and eject the dilithium core. Of course, in his brilliance, he decided to do this manually, so as not to trigger alarms and his suit became attached to the core as it launched into space. Onboard cameras showed his expression as a mixture of surprise and rapture as he rode the core to glory.
The resulting explosion ruptured space time creating a temperal vortex that, minus the core, we were unable to resist. Onboard systems are damaged but the crew is working hard to repair the ship and determine where exactly we are.
“Scotty, any luck getting the engines functional?”
“Well yes, Cap’n. I’ve asked em nicely and invited em over fer tea. I’m sure they’ll be hummin along in no time.”
“I’ll take that as a no. Keep working on it.” *comm out*
Hello everyone 🙂
As you can see, I’ve decided (due to popular demand) to continue with the Sunday Star Trekkian openings. Hope you enjoy them.
So, the week.
I spent most of the week gathering research, articles, maps, some deep scientific stuff that makes the brain want to sleep to escape and roamed the halls of history and myth. I think I have everything I need at this point and will be moving to stage two (compiling, characters and logline/core plot) this coming week. Total time investment of 27 hours since last Monday.
I used my NaNo discount and picked up Scrivener over the past week as well. Loving this program. Yes, I was using WriteWayPro. It worked fine. Scrivener is an upgrade and I love the overall functionality and ease of access between information (the inspector and split screen are awesome features). I’m also loving the corkboard which is a big improvement over the one in WWP. Got any Scrivener tips? Leave them in the comments, I’d love to know what you like the best and any tricks you’ve learned using the program.
No new changes to the blog this week. I’ve spent a few hours looking at every free theme on WordPress and
some of them are bizarre have narrowed it down to the one I”m using, Fusion, or Twenty-ten. These two have many similarities with the primary point of divergence being the way the top of the page / banner area displays. In Fusion, my Gravatar blocks the view of the Milky Way in the banner picture (yep, its right behind my forehead. See it?). With Twenty-Ten, the banner is fully visible and the Gravatar shifts down to the top of an aligned side column. Still debating this as I only want to make one shift. Have an opinion? Let me know.
Walking went well, I’ve completed 4 of 32 walks in my 60-day treadmill challenge with Marcia Richards. She is a walk ahead of me at this point but I’ll be walking this afternoon so maybe I can tie things up.
How was your week? Got any Scrivener tips, tricks, favorite experiences? Have an opinion of choices of WordPress theme? I’d love to hear your thoughts *smile*
