That was a big success.
I was hoping that making a public declaration that I was going to write soon would spur me to get started. Too bad my back-brain wasn’t fooled: it knows perfectly well a blog that barely gets noticed is only theoretically public. So I put off writing until midnight, floundered through a whole 200 words, and forget to leave off in the middle of something.
Then my back-brain woke me up saying, Hey, stupid, you were supposed to leave a sentence unfinished. Like this:
The platform hovered like a teatray in the sky, but only to the extent that teatrays don’t have retrorockets, cables hanging from the middle, or…
Remind me not to ask my back-brain for any more favors.
