Crappy

apollymi: Hatter with a cuppa, text reads "Tea?" (Alice**Hatter: Tea?)
So it hasn't been a good day for writing, but I'm not giving up on it today, not yet. I've been fighting with Scrivener all day, trying to get it to sync into Dropbox or pull up the most up to date copy of documents or what have you. It's just been a pain, but it's still one of the better writing programs I've used, so I'm sticking with it. After all, I'm much more comfortable with it than I am with Storyist... and I can use it to share documents with my coauthor [personal profile] katsuko much easier than, say, Word.

Work was a bit of shit show today. Not digging the new manager, Erik. I'm assuming he's an Erik with a k, not an Eric with a c. It's a thing. That's all I've got to say on that. It's a thing. We're talking to Carlos about this thing tomorrow, so I'm not going to be getting into it until then.

I do have a serious case of the unhappy stomach though, so I'm not sure how much I'm going to be able to sit around to get writing done. Maybe if I take my laptop with me to the toilet. It's not an appealing thought, but needs must and all that. I didn't eat anything today that I haven't had a hundred times before, but something with it made my stomach unhappy. Without anything better to say, I'll blame the barbecue sauce. :-(

So yeah, tonight might be the first night I have to admit defeat at less than 1000 words. We'll see. I'm going to keep on trying, at least for a little bit longer.
