Wondering about shipping this week

Tomorrow might be the day that my new Google Pixelbook Go ships. Denver snow is happening right now and probably will continue for the next couple of days. Weather might interfere with the delivery. Either way it works out; now is the time to get back to really writing a ton of words every day. Earlier this year, I figured out how to print my entire weblog and save the content as a stand alone document. Printing that many pages was interesting. Part of what made it so interesting was how much of my writing content did not get printed. The vast majority of things that have been written were not posted online. Every day I tend to open a word document and engage in the process of writing something. Each day that happens and those documents are generally stored by year. Online right now my document archive goes back to 2002.

A few documents probably exist from before 2002, but getting to them would probably be problematic. Anything that was stored on zip drive is probably gone forever. A few of my compact disc archives exist from around that time period. Most of that content was of questionable quality to begin with when it was written. From what I can tell the first real round of writing in a style that was published online happened around September 23, 2002. From what I can tell that is about the time I started to really dig into philosophical questions. It also happens to be the year I spent the most time writing novels and short stories. At the time my writing had zero inhibitions. No self censorship happened at all during the course of writing.

One of the things I did notice is that organization used to be a lot more central to how content was presented. Over the last ten years posts have just been entered and they are pretty much stored based on the order they were produced. Some rough categories exist, but for the most part it is just an ongoing narrative with no real organization. Maybe that is ok for now, but at some point things are going to need to tighten up a little bit. The sheer volume of content is unwieldy and difficult to consume. That could simply be a reflection of the fact that it was never really meant to be consumed. Next year I’m seriously considering taking another run at writing a million words and publishing them online. That pretty much means dedicating the time each day to produce 2,740 words per day or 1,000,000 words divided by 365. This little aside so far is just a five hundred word entry. That would fall short of the minimum daily contribution.

My Pandora internet radio service played a video add for me and gave me an hour of uninterrupted content this evening. That was nice and the Kansas CIty Chiefs are playing in the big Sunday night football matchup this week. Both of those things should help me produce more words, but they really are not helping all that much. This ASUS Chromebook Flip C101P has seen better days. Right now the keyboard is missing five keys. They broke some time ago and did not need to be replaced. Fortunately they are not keys that are commonly used.
