a thing I can do
I tried #24Kin24 (writing 24K words in 24 hours). Didn't work out so well. I got 7K words in, had to take a break, and then didn't return to the keyboard because life happened (both times).
So, maybe if I livestreamed (with proper equipment (eventually)) 5K words for X reason, covering X subject matter, for X cause(?). Maybe I can be very meta and just document what it entails/what matters most (to me) when writing a substantial document, like 5K words, as I write 5K words. A livestream of 5K words being written about the “art” of writing 5K words (or more!).
I'll give myself five(5) hours to do so. That should work. I can easily hammer out 1K words and hour (do it all the time). And I have WiFI now so streaming should really be no problem (when I have a machine capable of it, the phone won't do it).
On that note; I've toyed with the idea of the Linux Mint Box Mini 2 for over a month now, only to realize through numerous reviews that the machine is a total slug/can't handle basically anything (like the Raspberry Pi). So, I am considering a refurb iMac (2011/12) from Mac Of All Trades. This is no way an ad, but I have heard great thing about that store, and want to get one (an iMac) because it would be the same cost as a Mac Mini, only more “efficient” because it would be an all-in-one. No need for my (oversized and ugly) 26 inch monitor and the cable management nightmare that accompanies it. Easy choice.
An iMac can handle that picture-in-picture stream (not that I would do P-i-P), but more importantly, I can simply handle the stream of the text document itself being written. In real time. Fun.
Dunno why this is relevant to me, other than I want other avenues of getting what I like to do, and am good at, out there to the world to “show off”, a little bit, I suppose. (even though well over 50%+ of my writing totally sucks, usually).
I will come back to this...
