Spotted at the Hope & Ruin on Sunday.
I’ve started keeping a written log of what I do at the desk all day, and today’s page is already half-full. Inbox 13 after two hours’ grinding, the boards are marked up and I had a small breakthrough on something I’m developing for a friend — one of those small details that appear completely unnecessary internal logic / dressing until you get it and you realise it speaks to the whole thing. And to get it, I had to go against one of my long-standing rules, which is: “hyperspace” is magic handwavium bullshit. Sometimes you have to give up old thinking to get at the new idea, right?
I want to get some notes down later about “blogs,” which also goes against the long-standing rule of us old internet dinosaurs — “blogging about blogging.” But I need to get some thinking out in front of me where I can see it properly and work with it.
