20131020 ROW80 Check-in

I’ve been practicing to be a brain surgeon the past few days. Computer brain surgeon, that is. Swapping back to my old laptop to keep going while my desktop is in the shop. That means making room on the hard drive which means deleting files. So many choices, so little time. Something must go. I’ve been backing files up to the “cloud” to get around actually deleting most of the stuff. Will I ever look at those files again? I don’t know, but just to be sure…

I’ve also been studying the Myers-Briggs Personality Traits to help me differentiate my characters and write according to their strengths and weaknesses. Fascinating stuff. I think it will enrich my characterizations and lead to even more interesting conflicts.

  1. Studying psychological texts can be a great way to add some layers to your characters, Kathrese. I’m glad you’re having fun while doing it.

    Those old files though… Oh, been there, done that, still have most of them… Yeah, you might never look them up again,but storage is so cheap these days… Save it. Make a commitment to peek at the stash every few months or two to weed things out… You’ll be glad you did if you’re anything like me.
