Hello World

 Hello World. I am not dead. I do have a new and exciting medical problem, details in a locked post. I am still failing to keep up with Dreamwidth, although for slightly less unpleasant reasons than "looking at a screen bigger than my phone hurts my brain". Ditto doing something about my profic website, ditto any of my WiP that were progressing on electrons rather than dead tree. Even dead tree has been not happening over the last month, which is annoying because The Words Want Out; but some of that is because as has previously been mentioned I get a bit shy about writing the smutty bits when there are small children sitting next to me on the bus and I have run out of not-smutty bits to write, or at least lost track of which not-smutty bits are left to write.

"Screen hurts my brain" is actually still a bit of an issue in that my capacity for looking at a full size screen doesn't greatly exceed my working hours at the day job, but it's slowly getting better and there are workarounds. Unfortunately it's chewing up all the bandwidth I have, which means I have read lots of interesting books and they are not going to get reviewed or logged, not even to my usual lackadaisical standards.

I gather Tumblr has gone the "thanks for building our readership, now take your dirty, dirty porn away from our advertisers" route. This does not affect me because I never managed to wrap my elderly brain around the concept of Tumblr anyway - probably because I'm not a terribly visual person. I suppose my erotica alter ego ought to dig out their Tumblr password for the first time in several months and see if the account still exists. Not quite sure why I grok Twitter but not Tumblr, but there you go.

As anyone who follows my Twitter account has probably realised, I'm still spending too much of my limited screen time on the Cult Pens website. The "but I need it for professional writing purposes!" excuse is wearing a bit thin now, even if there's genuinely a lot of truth in it. I'd better get on and justify it...

"exciting" and "medical problem" should not go together. I do hope the prognosis is positive!

Well Hurrah! for the pointed remarks, then!

And here's hoping your GP has a pointy stick if such should be required.

Ouch - "screen hurts my brain" sounds awful...

I'm glad that the problems seem to be improving a little. I never grasped Tumblr either, though I do have an account I never use.
