A Craft Demonstration on Constructed Language

I was PLANNING to #amwriting in my cave.

But SOMEONE failed to properly charge the hardware overnight. (That would be me. Sherlock would be convinced I’m drunk, but nope, just nearsighted.) I have just plotted a NEW swerve, but it’s gonna percolate.

Instead, a craft lesson.

This is how I write. It’s a way to write. It’s not necessarily the way everyone should write. But it’s how I do it, and I’m willing to break it down using my own (OMG I’m So Sorry) old drafts.

Twitter, Write.as, using your words.

Most of my nattering is on Twitter now (@CZEdwards, follow me!) because that’s where people say things that make me wonder just how often they fell out of trees onto their heads as children. But that usually prompts me actually write something on the social/psych/behavioral side, or at least go digging statistics and documentation to refute.

And then I get about 50 new people on my block list because my patience for ass millinery (Hats for asses) seems to get shorter every year. It’s an all-around win.

The big issue is that I don’t like this interface (which isn’t what you see here). I’ve never really liked the WordPress app, I don’t like writing live on wordpress through the web interface and…
