children of dune - leto 1


Started work on functions and arrays these last two weeks. Question.

Strings = a complex array?

A lot of class now is spent less with notes and more with short, simple programs as illustration, which I cannot emphasize enough how awesome that it, though it does reinforce my inability to do a damned flowchart or IPO. Anyway. I was looking at strings, since they have their very own include to be added as a data type--was that written so that there wouldn't necessarily be arrays for stuff like entire paragraphs? And how are those created?

I'm curious. I've been playing with functions a lot to see how they shorten a program, and the arrays feel very--interesting, yes, but also interestingly *useful*. Though I'm not sure how yet.

Seriously, I only have two weeks left, and I'm already missing this class a lot. I really wish they had a Christmas short semester.

Sadly, we are skipping two dimensional arrays. It is depressing.

You know, eventually, I have got to think of something more interesting to say.

help. literary help. fannish help. please. help.

I am--blocked.

Writer's block. Not just any writer's block either, but the kind that also does not allow random porn snippets. Nothing. Nada. It is liken unto a great, blank wall of--something bad. An edifice. Okay, you see that? I can't even metaphor. At least before I could do it badly and with great energy. Now, not so much. It is a dark, dark time.


Violence helps. Randomly, since this is the one closest to finished: A History of Violence'verse*, Lorne POV. What would be fun and deeply, deeply bloody to write? I'll do--er, at least three of them, minimum 1000 words. Episode-related would be very very fun.

miss_porcupine, for your patience, your good humor in letting me borrow your Lorne, and for the thing where I am almost done with Teacher's Pet 10 and still freaking blocked, one guaranteed for you separately, and I'll even finish it by Friday or die trying.

*backstory to Crimes Against Humanity, the one with all the crazy and the death and the porn and whatnot.
