I know, the asterix(es?i?) felt very contrived to me too, but just in case there are young Wrimotaurs around, I decided to go PG-13. I’m going to have some swearing in my YA book for sure, but given it’s about sports, there isn’t really a question there.
Oh yes, gettin’ real. I tuned into the chat room late-ish tonight, needing to cram some words in after a productive day coding (gotcha, product modifier fields!), beating our archrival indoor field hockey team 4-2 in an intense but super-fun matinee match, and watching Louis C.K. on the SNL taping. I felt a little panic tonight, realizing that now I’ve broadcast my DoubleNano intention, there’s some REAL pressure now!
Luckily, I found my WordWar nemesis in DanTheMano. We discovered he’s a sprinter, as he beat me in all the sub-10 minute wars, and I’m the marathoner. There was some fridge throwing, some poisonous drink giving, and lots of smack talk.
Now – THIS is writing.
