Writers Block

I'll level with you, its not a good start
For the purposes of this blog, i shall be refering to you, the currently non existant reader, in the plural, and assume you are interested in the writing, whether for its excellent style and flow, its challenging and powerful ideas, or just to remind yourself that your blog is at least one from the bottom of the pile.

My friend Michael has a blog (hi mich) and i'm jealous as he has lots of stories. Soft core i think he called them. Don't get your hopes up like i did, its a type of science fiction, with no basis on science. I'm unsure as to whether this is better or worse than the 'hardcore' ones, those by a hideously overweight yank convinced he can prove a tinfoil hat will protect onesself while in a wormhole.

It would be nice to be able to get a plot going, and to bring in characters, and then get them laid, or killed, or whatever. While an arts degree seems to many to be a waste of time, and for the most part, i agree, it'd be handy to know how to cobble a story together.

For any of you who i haven't already shown this article, give it a read ( In summary, the cambodian govornment funded a fight between 42 psychotic fighting midgets and a lion. Needless to say, the lion killed almost all of them, and those left weren't all that well off. If only we used our taxpayer money better, less subsidising of nicotine patches and more money put into vying minority groups off against dangerous animals. 200 blind chinamen trapped in a public pool, then the glorous moment of releasing a single crab.

One of the things that annoys me most is when people take things at face value. So as not to be hypocritical, i wanted to find out what the 'fmft' part of the link meant... as simply pegging BBC NEWS onto an excellent, thought fake report is presumably very easy. The problem is, i'm not that crash hot with computers, and therefore have no idea how to find out what fmft is. If anyone can, it'd be greatly appreciated, as i would hate for the midgets, real or otherwise, to have laid down their lives for a wonderful story of questionable truth.
