Renu and I went to Bria's dance performance tonight. It was fantastic. It was also a nice break from my DE test, which I'm halfway finished with after spending a good bit of the day on it. And by that, I mean "working and dicking around on the Internet". Gee, you'd think I'd be doing something productive when I'm not working. Apparently not. Oh well.

We played Hangman on my pocket dictionary before the performance and during the intermission, and there was one word that we just couldn't figure out. _u_u. I'm about to go look it up now. Any ideas? Edit: OneLook just gave me 139 results for that combination. I feel better for not knowing it now. I think we would have had about 50 to choose from from what we had already guessed (we were trying to decide the last letter).

Anyway, it's December again, and embodiment signups are open again! What is it, you ask? It's a paper journaling project. You keep a paper journal and write something in it every day for a year. Now as we all know so well, I do keep Dr. Nbook, even though I'm not so great at writing in it every day. So basically I failed miserably last year, going days without writing in Dr. Nbook. I think I went a week last month without writing in it. Sad times.

But anyway, I'm still doing it again this year in the hopes of writing something every day. After all, the best way to become a better writer is to, well, write. That's why I started Dr. Nbook in the first place; I wanted to be a writer, so I decided to practice my craft. I need to get back to doing that. This is a good place to start.

So if you want to do this too, just join the community! It doesn't matter whether you do collages or photography or just text in your journal. (I'm a text person myself with the occasional doodle. There's a beauty in the written word that stands out on its own.) I'll see you there.

And I still need to write the promised update, and I still have yet another one to write. I'll do that later.

We thought that, but it wasn't.

That looks like a neat community. I just joined it. :) I write in a paper journal everyday, anyway, so I thought that joining may give me new ideas. Lots of cool people, there.

But anyway: I freewrite everyday. I know it's not technically "writing", but I've found it immensely helpful in helping me do actual writing. It trains my mind to write what's on the top of my head, and so I find the rough-draft process much easier than a few years ago; before I started doing it. So... I thought that would be an idea. :)

"_u_u" should be "Sulu". But that's because I'm a big Trekkie. ;)

Trekkies for the win! And we guessed l because we thought lulu, but l wasn't in there. That also narrowed down quite a few other options.

But see, freewriting is good. You get stuff down on paper, no matter how it sounds.

*facepalm* That was probably it. We didn't guess either of those letters, and we were down to the last one before the little guy got hung. Ah well.

Aww... poor little guy.

LJ is being a buttmonkey and not letting me post this comment.

LJ has had issues lately. Server errors, I think.

*facepalms again* And that should read "before the little guy got hanged". People get hanged; things get hung.
