Oh good.

They're home.

No jury would convict me.

I swear.
Trying something new,

in yet another attempt

to shuck spam:

sherbie at

that game company domain.
Another reason to love Austin:

The price of membership

at I Love Video is $2.50


cutting up your Blockbuster card.
I've little to report.


What's the best way

to overthrow a dictatorship?

Just making conversation...
I Love Video

has Dangermouse episodes

for rent!
Irrefutible fact:

You cannot like someone

and debug his code.
If you do your job well,

people will think your job is easy.

Resist the urge

to rip off their heads

and cram them down their throats

when they compliment you thus.
Sat by the waterfront,

drank coffee,

pecked at a novel.

More days off,

Took a nap


in shorts


Weather is so odd.
Took yesterday off.

Read, wrote,

ate pumpkin pie in my pajamas.


We get Dr. Joyce Brothers.

Nashville gets Harry Connick, Jr.!

I feel gyped.

is a book allowed to have

and still have

a successful commercial release?

You there.

Hug someone you love,

and be thankful that you can.
I have to write

my self-assessment.

Can you tell?


I wonder if this

is the Alex I know.

I so need to get back to work.
This is so petty.

Filtering by Austin,

sorting by wordcount, descending

I'm on the first page!

And my friend Marshall

is third. Wow.
Put up a post

and then another excerpt

on my LiveJournal.
Possibly against

my better judgement,

I have posted

the first excerpt.
The question is,

should I start a livejournal

just to post novel excerpts?
1721 words.

3.5 hours.

And I didn't wimp out

on the sex scene.

2149 words today.

4-and-a-half hours.

Neil Gaiman uses the

same kind of notebook I do!

I'm a real writer!
Checking your wordcount

after every paragraph

is like weighing yourself

every day.
Wrote 1,700+ words yesterday.


Took four hours. Hm.
