Dreams, nightmares, visions, and boring stuff

Ah, sleep deprivation!  It's a wonderful inspiration.. not for programming so much, though.

I've been having some seriously odd dreams lately, I'm not 100% sure of the reason.. stress, the above-mentioned sleep loss, food (HOT HOT wings), or just being alone at last and starting to relax at home a bit now that things are stabilizing.

I don't keep a dream journal any more, but I do recall most of my dreams in the morning, and if anything seems meaningful I'll type it into my laptop.  One thing they've been useful for is story ides, I'e had 4-5 dreams that will make great weird fiction stories!

I've located two online e-zines that take story submissions.  Time to get my butt in gear and write, write, write!  I have two weird fiction shorts in progress and a few ideas for others, so I have plenty of material to get rejected (heh).

Work proceeds apace, lots of new product development, new code, bug fixing, and other things that are keeping me gainfully employed.  Nothing super-exciting or new, but it's steady and interesting work, so I'm not ready to polish my resume quite yet.

Not much on the music or 3D front.  While my DAW (digital audio workstation) program is quite usable on the laptop screen, my 3D applications are a pain as the icon-based interfaces and menus end up TINY.  Near instant eyestrain isn't conducive to creativity, so the 3D thing remains on hold until I get a laptop with a 17 inch screen (later this year).

I hope to start composing again this weekend, when I'm not writing.  I have some soundscape/cinematic pieces in my head I'd love to make real!
