Writing War Journal, Day 7

Last night worked out pretty well. In spite of the heat and an appointment early in the evening, I got home and banged out over 900 words. If I can manage this 5 days a week, I may finish in a month!

Huh. That’s not exactly encouraging.

Ten Day Forecast:

Today – Evening mostly free to write. I’ll be at the girlfriend’s apartment as she packs up, but she’s assured me I’ll be free to type for most of the night. I’m assuming I’ll be dragged in tohelp with some shlepping.
Tomorrow – Type and gripe.
Friday – Evening free to write, unless I try to get a head start on game prep for Sunday.
Saturday – Some free time in the morning, but may need to devote that to game prep for Sunday. Helping girlfriend move stuff in the evening.
Sunday – Getting photos taken in the morning. Gaming in the afternoon. Might be able to write afterwards, if I have any brain power left.
Monday – Either Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday will have dinner plans with a friend. Otherwise evening free to write.
Tuesday – Evening free to write.
Wednesday – Evening free to write.
Thursday – Evening free to write.
Friday – Dinner with friends.

More than anything, I’d really like the heat to go away. Blech.

    The Resources page seemed kinda small to me… I don’t really see the trouble.

    I think the graphical navigation is fine, but there should definitely be text-based navigation in addition to it, and the text-based navigation should be in a line at the bottom (or top, but not in your case) of each screen.

    And you know, you didn’t put any limits on that call for opinions… There’s too much white space. More that 2 inches at the top, and then an utterly random ~6 inch chunk at the bottom(?!), and then on the Resources page about 4 inches on the left… Some people claim that white space is necessary, but I say bushwa, and it makes the page look padded as if it has no content. (I’m running Firebird on Windows, 800×600, and my visible page-viewing size is (with tabs) 5.75″x10.125″.)

    Also, you need a link to legal boilerplate on the bottom along with the copyright. Makes the page look professional.

    The white space at the top is the design I got. I may be able to tighten it up, but it’d be a bitch. Plus, I have vague notions of keeping that space open.

    The bottom… that is kinda random. I think it’s a result of me putting in line breaks to fill in space when there was no content, and then not taking it out when I do have content.

    Left side of the Resources page…? I don’t really see that. It may be your crazy browser. ;)
