I've finally gotten it through my head that, unless I take concrete steps to pursue some so-called "long term" goals, I may very well depart this veil of tears with the sweetest music left unplayed.

So in addition to the other ridiculousness going on chez nous, I spent the day putting together a... something (book?)... of fiction items that I'd written for LJ Idol over the years.

It wasn't as hard as I thought, but it took more time than I anticipated.

My main takeaway from the exercise has been the difficulty associated with rewriting the ending to a story. Specifically, I rewrote (a href="http://alexpgp.livejournal.com/1515058.html">Salt of the Earth to leave Sailor alive at the end, with the issue of his survival in doubt, but with some (I hope) optimistic overtones.

In other news, I've started to listen to podcasts again, but the whole podcast ecosystem would appear to have undergone a major radical change since last I listened to the genre. That change involves podcast length. Podcasts such as This Week in Tech and Jocko Podcast are easily over two hours long! (I don't watch that much television in a week!) I shall have to pick and choose where to spend my time, I guess.

Cheers...
