    A much more belated "You're Welcome" to the belated thanks

    It doesn't seem like you are that active either.

    Just out of curiosity do you feel up to play Halo Reach online at all?

    Yes, I prefer face-to-face communication, too; as well as being more personal, faster-paced and generally more entertaining, it poses a bigger challenge to the would-be conversationalist. The mind whirrs; jokes are thought up, considered, discarded; possible avenues for exploration are laid out and arranged in order of preference, and then when the other speaker changes direction have to be frantically rethought in terms of appropriateness - I mean, it's like playing chess with a three-second time limit on each move atop a speeding train. I get quite a rush out of a good conversation; I imagine it's a similar sort of feeling to that experienced by people who seek out life-or-death swordfights. (I also imagine that those people exist, because if they do the world is a better place.)

    I don't think I'm a different person online, except for the fact that I say everything more elaborately, since I compose words best in the limbo of a word-processing program - my head, my tongue and notebooks all let me down here; I'm only capable of waxing truly eloquent onscreen. However, I'll admit you have a point; some people are indeed totally different.

    And the weather's gone back downhill here, too. The last few days it's wavered between sun and torrential rain, and sometimes both simultaneously. There's even been random hail - quite large hailstones, too - in the middle of sunny afternoons. As you so splendidly put it, Mother Nature's uterus is indeed cramping up. (And hey! Your anonymity might embolden you, but I seriously doubt I'd bat an eye if I heard that in real life; in fact, I'd probably treasure the moment and respond with something equally inappropriate and probably more perverse. Such is the value of face-to-face communication.)

    Ah, well, you would have noticed the first two only; the third, as a serious attempt at writing something, is only seen by me until it reaches first draft form, at which point I will be giving it out to everyone I know for feedback while simultaneously reworking it. For some reason, fanfiction is the only stuff I don't mind revealing in an incomplete stage; I think perhaps part of my mind tells me that it doesn't matter, since I'm only using it as a kind of whetstone for my writing in order to prepare for Great Things. (Such as this other novel, the first I've written for some years now.)

    As for time... I only take half an hour or so each day to write entries for Petroleum, and just a few hours each weekend to write each chapter of Crack'd. The rest of the time, I am actually fairly busy, which means the novel suffers - but there's no one following that one and reading it as I go along, which means it has to come last, despite it being the one I want to write most. Such is life, I guess.

    And motivation... God knows where that comes from. Sometimes I feel that I write for the same reason I breathe, because it's a condition of my existence and I can't survive without it, and on other days I think I write because I lost my mind years ago and want to try and write myself a new one. I'm not even sure I can tell the difference between those two states any more, actually.

    I have completely lost the thread of this message now, so I'm going to stop before I start rambling too much. (Another difference between online and real-life conversations: in real life, no one lets me waffle on this long without interrupting me.)
