I love to write. I started a novel about two years ago, but that was my first endeavor into writing, and I wasn't really all that happy with the results. As with anthing, the more you do it the better you become.

My first bit of work has a lot wrong with it i'm sure. That's why I think i'm going to start a fresh new novel and hope for the best.

From all that i've read, publishing your first attempt at a novel is a rare thing, which is why i'm looking at it as a learning experience. This isn't to say that i'm going to completely abandon my first novel. I still like the story, and the more I write, the more i'm sure I can improve its quality, but for now I think it shall remain a learning experience tucked away on my harddrive and in my closet.

Writing is one of my favorite things, along with programming. This is a bit of a curse in itself. With these two different interests, I can't ever decide what I want to do, and to this point, I haven't really done much constructive. I think that I need to somehow learn to divide my time between the things I love and set aside chunks of time for each.

Some people might like this sort of diversity, but sometimes I wish that it could be either/or, you know?

Ah well, there's my braindump for the day.

More or less it's about new technologies, Russian and US conflicts flaring up again, and an attempt for one country to stay a step ahead of the other.
