  1. scrolled down and read the Chaos Theory entry. interesting, that, and you’re right – we need to be startled, awed, always wondering what if.

    it is sad, really, that we need giant creatures of debatable existence to arrest our fascination. this, when every single thing around us is worthy of deepest admiration – CDs, for instance, are sound stored in a metal disc – is that not wonderful? and sound, in turn, that the void of sound can fill with feeling – the fusing of two fragile intangibles in a beautiful great intangible, is that not enchanting?

  2. I found this game strangely addictive.

    Does that make me weird?

    Well, it doesn’t matter.

  5. Well lets just say, I’m in a spot and its not a very good one i.e as far as everyone else is concerned. Its a matter of destiny it seems, and presents in the form of many rather preposterous novels, that grow and grow and grow. I’m currently attempting to balance a dental course (2nd year) and the scales tip (or rather mega dip) in favour of ‘WRITING’ to be precise ‘WRITING PREPOSTEROUS BUT BELIEVABLE SUPER FICTION, SCI FI, FANTASY NOVELS’. Does’nt go well for dental though, my inspirations are others distractions. Feel like quitting the course and putting all i’ve got into my many books. Also I’m not a published author YET, but am certain that I will be. Also wondering whether an English literature or a creative writing course would suffice as an alternate for dental degree for though many assume that a degree is important, I assume otherwise and would honestly prefer pursuing a course that would aid in my writing in a way. If you’re reading this perhaps you could opine a thing or two.

    P.S- every career councillor I’ve had to put up with either thinks I’m nuts. One even precribed me pills (One I swallowed the others rot in the packaging)
