Writing like a motherfucker, getting ideas out and down into file. The new SSFST title has blown through my mind without accreting any usable concepts. So, as always happens in this situation, I find myself wondering idly for a single concept on which I can hang a story, and later add enough dressing to make the title fit. For me, it's an ugly way of writing a story, but sometimes you just have to do it. I think I have the concept, but be forewarned, it's probably not going to be my best work.

In less-than-beneficial news, I think the lapdog is going to need looking at yet again. The same shit has started as did with the last hard drive, and if it fucks that up the arse I will not be happy. I don't want to have to blow lots on a hard drive just to have the machine render it useless. Really, of course, the laptop needs gutting and upgrading. since it's two and a half years old and has seen constant use and abuse over that time. What to do, what to do... I need it for a lot of little reasons which are mostly petty bullshit family dynamics, but the question of how much cascading repairs will be against just saving up and getting a bastard new one is weighing on me.
