Microfiction

I like to write. I'm happier when I have a random idea for a blog post, and then sit down and pound it out.

Today's Penny Arcade introduced me to a new type of writing:

microfic

This sounded amazing. I wanted into this. So in the past thirty minutes I've been researching (shit, gonna be late to work). The app Tycho is mentioning is Hooked. Hooked is built by Telepathic and the general gist is a chat app for telling stories.

Googling for microfiction turns up a few things. One article describes microfiction as single paragraph stories. Another site I found publishes these stories every monday.

Finally there is a story in Vogue about how the founders of this company sold a bunch of their posesstions and floated around the world.

So yeah, this sounds neat, I'm going to try and write some stories like this short, or in chat form. Sad the app isn't on Android, but that's normal.

Ok, now, I need to leave for work.

Well it's July. July means it's the third quarter of the year. When the second quarter of 2016 started, I wrote a quarterly review of the first quarter of 2016. I really liked that. So I figured I'd do it again. Switching from yearly retrospectives adds an extra "umph" to remind me what I'm doing and why. It's also incredibly helpful because the campaign is forcing me to think so short term. I constantly need to recenter and remind myself what is happening, what has happened and where I am going.

I had never heard of these Russian Dash Cams before. Pretty neat idea, and I could totally see them coming into use in the US given the number of lawsuits we have. This also reminds me how sheltered the USA is.
