The Law of the Unspeakable

I knew better.

I knew better and I did it anyway.

My last post said Hopefully, I can knock out about 3,000 words or more on Saturday,. I knew better than to say something like that out loud (or to post it) because it invoked the law of the unspeakable.

One of Murphy's Laws - "If you mention something bad, it'll happen." and it's mate - "If you mention something good, it'll stop."

So, of course, family stuff managed to keep me busy all weekend. And I wound up missing work on Monday and still didn't get any writing done. I have to admit, I did go to see Coraline on Sunday with the family and dzeytoun. That was a couple of hours well spent. I enjoyed the heck out of the movie. The daughter-unit had picked up the book a few weeks ago, and she said it was "close enough" that it didn't annoy her like a lot of adaptions do.

But, I was bound and determined to get some writing in tonight. I finished off Chapter 5, putting us 1496 words to the good. Been having fun writing the majority of this story from Samantha Carter's point of view. Unlike Jack's smart-ass remarks, she tends to pick and choose her "gotcha's".

Shifting subjects for a second, one of these days, I'll have to list the web comics I'm following these days and get some suggestions from you guys. Maybe tomorrow's post.

It's good to get back to the keyboard. But now, I think I'll catch a Sam Spade radio show or two and call it a night.
