Wednesday (3/4/09) 1:53pm - ... wherein It's Wednesday.

Things continued to go pretty well this week.

TV class has kept percolating along:  I finished some loglines for Burn Notice, and I'll spend the coming week translating one of those loglines into a beat sheet.  My scheme to record Micetro keeps on a-schemin' -- I did some more recording experiments, and ordered a USB mic (which should arrive by Monday).

I also went to the Hideout's 10-year-reunion show/party, which was honestly the most fun I've had in a long time.

There isn't much else to report.  Writing those loglines took a lot of hours.  I tried dropping by the ASG workgroup again, and watched some of the Hideout's four-day "Iron Improvisor" tournamnet.

And really, that's about it.

This coming week looks... um, daunting.  By my reckoning, this week's TV-class homework will take over twenty hours -- and I've got this week's Sketchwar and Spanish entries on top of that.  And of course, this winds up being a week when there's all sorts of fun stuff to do:  it's my last chance to see Erin's show, the Fed is having a blues room, and I'm stopping by Micetro, casting permitting.

So I'm trying to pack about sixty hours of stuff into about fifty hours of time.  (o_O.)  Worse comes to worse, I'll take some time off on Monday.

Option B:  no sleep.

The Utterly-Useless Fact of the Week:
The British term "fortnight" originally derives from Middle English "fourtene night", or "fourteen nights".  In Shakespeare's day, English also had "se'nnight", or "seven nights", meaning "one week".

How does one come up with a number like 20.5? I can't count that high when it comes to hours for a task to get done.

Good question -- in this case, I broke the task into subtasks, timed out the subtasks, and summed it all up.

(Having written some specs before, I have a pretty good idea of both what subtasks I have to do and how long they take.)

*laughs hysterically at this take on her writing process, which requires, like, several hours if not days if not months of putting ideas together in a soupy, only semi-conscious way, and then getting desperate and/or drunk and/or otherwise psyched up enough for the sitting-down-and-writing to finally actually take place, which usually it doesn't*

ETA: *knows how incredibly insufferable, tedious and cliched this is. attempts to do otherwise*
