more diary = less LJ (and less writing)

I've been writing more in the diary the last week (no, this LJ is *not* the diary). I'm realizing the diary is a good tool for me to work out certain emotions or feelings when I'm not certain what the source is. It's similar to the story writing, where all I can carry in my head is the first part and once I get that down on e-paper I can get to the second part and the third part and the understanding.

Unfortunately, more writing in the diary means less blog posts on LJ and less story writing. Even though I can do 1000 diary words in about 30 minutes (where's that speed on story writing, eh?), it's just a matter of the time equations at that point (if (time_available - diary_time) > 0 then story_writing_time).

I made the commitment to try to speed up my story writing rate before Viable Paradise in an effort to get to 24 stories. That might be iffy, but I'm going to give it a shot. And there's everything else: life, relationship, kids, work, household, critiques, etc.

Excuse me, universe? Where's all that spare time I ordered a while back?

My new favorite info site: LyricWiki

While looking up a song I had heard on the radio, I stumbled across LyricWiki. It's an attempt to provide a song lyrics site that's not plastered with ads and pop-ups and downloads and the like (as anyone who has used lyrics sites has encountered).

They must be pretty new, as there are some songs missing and most pages need some more organization. Hey, time to get contributor status and kick in some effort? Just what I need, something else to spend my time on.

Theatre comment: "Sarah, Sarah" by Daniel Goldfarb @ B Street

Last night, C and I went to see "Sarah, Sarah" by Daniel Goldfarb at the B Street Theatre in Sacramento. Overall I enjoyed it, though I had some issues with how the play is structured. I did enjoy the performances of the actors, especially Amy Resnick in the lead
