The Horrible Monday Post That I Will Come To Dread

April 26th, 2011 | daybook

So last Monday I recommenced work on GUN MACHINE.  Totally forgetting that the long weekend was coming, and that I was booked to clear the upstairs of the house in prep for the massive amount of plumbing work we have to have done.  I so totally forgot that on Thursday I was cutting a few flabby bits out of the writing from the week so far, “knowing” I’d have the weekend to bring the word count up to the required 5000 over seven days.

Ha ha I’m an idiot.


I already hate the Death Bar.

However, I also wrote about 30 pages of FREAKANGELS in the last week.  So here’s a new count for you: I have seven episodes of FREAKANGELS left to write, then I’m done.  Episode 0144 is the last in the series.

The jury’s still out on whether I’m going to replace it with another webcomic project.

In the meantime, I now know what the protagonist’s name in HALF MOON is, and I think I know what at least half the story is.

  • Scientists create stable, self-renewing neural stem cells
    "…a game-changing advance in stem cell science: the creation of long-term, self-renewing, primitive neural precursor cells from human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) that can be directed to become many types of neuron without increased risk of tumor formation."

  • How Bacteria Could Generate Radio waves – Technology Review
    "It is well known that bacterial and other types of cells use electromagnetic waves at higher frequencies to communicate as well as to send and store energy. If cells can also generate radio waves, there's no reason to think they wouldn't exploit this avenue too."

  • Chemists fabricate ‘impossible’ material
    "When atoms combine to form compounds, they must follow certain bonding and valence rules. For this reason, many compounds simply cannot exist. But there are some compounds that, although they follow the bonding and valence rules, still are thought to not exist because they have unstable structures. Scientists call these compounds "impossible compounds." Nevertheless, some of these impossible compounds have actually been fabricated…"
