Yay for Monday mornings!

Okay, that sounded way more cheerful than I feel.
It is 10am, I've been up for about an hour and I'm bored. I have a pile of things that need done but no enthusiasm to do them. Thus I am creating a reward system for today...yay! Yeah I know behaviourism at it's best, but it does work with me.

I have finally managed to drag together all the bits of Waveriders I have had stored and have sorted out the junk for the useful. Did find an interesting scrap that I'll probably not use but had an awesome description of a monkey;

Now that the crisis was over, Medi settled to packing away her medical supplies. As she rolled up the last of the bandages Sprocket came running in screeching at her. "Sorry, I don't speak 'Sprocket'" She said waving an unwoven bandage at the creature. Digits had called it a monkey earlier but as it grabbed the bandage, ran off to a corner and began trying to bandage it's self, Medi decided it was really a small furry child that had been given a tail to allow it to cause more mischief. And she needed that bandage back.

I have no idea what crisis lead to this or why Medi why I decieded Medi didn't know what a monkey was but there you go. I should go do some studying, for each section of the book I finish I get to read a chapter of the book I'm... well... reading ( Slave Girl by Jackie French).

Ama gonna be a writer!

Or mabey not given my lack of spelling and grammar which seem to be getting worse as time goes on (Can you develop dyslexia?).

To put it simply, I've decided to join together all the random bits of Waveriders I've written so far and try to form it into a workable novel of some kind. I'll be doing this for 2 main reasons:

  1. I enjoy creative writing and I love the Waverider characters.
  2. It'll give me something to keep my mind occupied when I'm awake at 3am/stressed out/bored.
So yeah... much fun will commence.

So far I'm still working on finding the already written chunks and for some kind of plan and plot line. Can't have the story jump from M6 as a slave to being Medi on the Talisman without a slavers market and all the fun of that.

Shall go do some actual studying now (well, do the dishes first) and then work a bit on me plan.
