So I loaded a whole fleet of my wips into zohowriter to test whether I would actually work on them while not at my laptop, and in a non-Times New Roman font. Okay, immediately I changed to Times New Roman--I have no idea why, but for some reason, Verdana and Arial totally change how I write. Such as, wildly, I decided to sketch the next Strangerverse story, and okay, first, John pov, which is *weird*, and then baking got involved, which on one hand, huh, and on the other, what? I'm still debating whether to use it or not--it needs like, maybe a page to finish off. If I even knew what in the name of God they were doing.

However, nine of my top ten wips are listed here--Landscape isnt' simply because I have it split between files and frankly, that one's problem is more complex than simply general not-feeling-it--but I'm curious if I *can* write porn at work. It's an actual curiosity. I'm in a cubicle that I kind of sort of share with another attached cubicle, and there are people ducking in adn out all the time, and I talk to *clients*. So can I, at any time, suddenly break into 'And then Rodney went down on John hard enough for him to see spots."

Well, yes, I did *here*, but one might hope for a little more detail otherwise.

Plus, let's face it. From that sentence? I'm not feeling 'porn' so much as 'serious physical injury' and 'call Carson now' and 'possible lack of oxygen'. And hey, thought; there should be fic like that. I mean, sex leads to physical injury leads to bizarre misunderstanding, the way only fiction can really pull off.

I have a lot more fun ideas than I will ever have the energy to pull off.

In closing--seriously, giant evil spore mushrooms *outside my window*. What the *heck*? Apparently there are more. I hate non-edible mushrooms.

John. Baking.

How could that possibly bad?

I do actually kind of lose the ability to process when I imagine John making cookies. Just. Guh.

Zoho does change the way I look at my writing. I'm not entirely comfy with the change (perhaps because I need a 12-point serif font to be able to type without my glasses on and such a font takes up too much space on the smallish text window), but it does have its conveniences. [Bit of warning: learn how to use that locking and unlocking feature when you are sharing documents with other zoho users -- I lost most of a scene when I thought it saved and it hadn't.]

Once upon a time, not too long ago, I couldn't read porn at my desk and I couldn't write at all. For the same reasons you mentioned. Now? I have written porn at my desk (no, really, I have written porn), had my porn beta-read via AIM at work, and generally write better at work because I can tune out the distractions here. No, I don't get that, either. Granted, I don't have much phone time, but I do have co-workers who have no appreciation for th boundaries of personal space.

I would *really* give a lot for that window to be bigger. I'm not sure why--I guess my eyes are too used to a full screen.

Actually, that makes sense. Let's face it, coworkers are not the choice in entertainment. *thoughtful* I am

Also. *smirks* You wrote porn? Where?


I've hidden the links to all but one of the porny tales (2 DCU, 1 Star Wars, 1 Homicide), but it's still on my site. (And the DC stuff is linked to from elsewhere.) The reason I don't write porn any more is that my porn writing is awful.

. Such as, wildly, I decided to sketch the next Strangerverse story, and okay, first, John pov, which is *weird*, and then baking got involved, which on one hand, huh, and on the other, what?

Let's break this down, okay?

Strangerverse? Good.

John POV? Good.

Weird? Good.

Baking? Good.

All of that together? Guh.

*g*

*smirks* I really wanted them to fight and throw cake dough at each other. Sadly, it was not meant to be. *sniffles*

Awww. But think of all the other things they could do with cake dough... or with the finished cake!

Just thinking about it takes me to my happy place. :-)

Oh yeah... try changing your font size. There were some fics I couldn't continue till I adjusted them back to their original font face and size.

that makes so much sense.

First: see icon.

Second: I want a picture of the mushrooms! Science likes to know these things! Really!

Verdana and Arial totally change how I write.

I thought it was just me. I can only write in Tahoma 10 point. For anything. For my school Manuscripts I have to change it to Courier 12 point and it makes the baby Jesus cry. Though I am getting a feel for what the exchange rate is.

but I'm curious if I *can* write porn at work

But you already have!

I hate non-edible mushrooms.

I want you to know that, in the process of trying to catch up on lj in a hurry, I read that as "non-editable mushrooms." Oh, my brain.

I have written porn at work. Either into a notebook, or on a file saved only on my flash drive. I love my flash drive.

More John is always good. John and baking might be too much for my delicate sensibility to handle, I'm just warning you.

Mushrooms sometimes appear on the route to the park. They weird me out.
