When a computer tries to run too many applications at once, it tends to slow down until it becomes useless and crashes. This is what happened to the computer in my brain yesterday...I completely get where he's coming from. This week, my own CPU has been running pretty heavy and I'm trying to finish running those apps as quickly as I can to free up some space. Or to put it in more D&D-friendly terms: I feel like I'm trying to memorize spells with all my daily selections already filled.
The best way to fix a computer with a maxed-out CPU is to close all the open applications, give it some time to cool off, and then reopen only the essential files.
The good news is that I've got one of my submissions out the door and I'm about halfway through my second. The first installment of Level 3 of Stonehell just requires me to ink in the location numbers, scan the map, and slap in into the completed template.
The bad news is that I've got the second installment mapped out but have yet to begin the stocking process. On top of all that, I've got a new writing project in mind that looks like it could be rather lengthy, so even if I clear off the backburners of my creative stovetop, there's a big old roast waiting to be put in the oven. I was also hoping to submit something to Green Devil Face.
I think I'm good for the evening, writing-wise. I'm going to start shutting down some applications or maybe cast a few detect magic spells to clear my head. Maybe watch Spartacus on DVD.
I just wanted to thank everyone for their patience while I reboot my head. Content of a more deeper depth will appear again next week. Hopefully, the wait will be worth it.
