Pretty exhausted from all that insomnia—again. Well, looks like we'll have to save all our energy for tomorrow. From here, it's full speed ahead with that outline. (Still stuck at two paragraphs.)

Thanks to Sunday's launch, I'll also set up an event post (my first on G+) for those first thousand words. I've been pondering about this for as long as I've been awake today, and I'm going right ahead—lest everyone around me forgets.

Till we meet again, it's diè wåde, ovwa and out...and до свидания!

Now, please...let's make this happen. Once...and for all. Peace.

I'll get to this strategy as soon as we get Marigot all polished up.

The Heartbleed Checklist: What Passwords to Change
To enlarge image:

Heartbleed bug is a major security flaw in OpenSSL, and is one of the biggest threats ever to face the online community.

Conflicting reports have led to panic – nobody seems to know which social networking sites and other popular services have been affected.

To dispel the confusion, the iVPN folks have created a checklist that tells you which sites have been affected by the HeartBleed bug, and whether it's safe to change your password.

A key highlight from visual: (after the heartbleed news) It's highly recommended to change your passwords, especially if you are using Blogger, Google, Gmail. Yahoo, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, YouTube (Pinterest too).

Tip: You can check if any website is vulnerable of heartbleed bug with this tool:

Are You Ready For A New Flash Gordon Movie?

There have been several attempts over the decades to bring Flash Gordon to life. The old Buster Crabbe cliffhanger serials are fun and capture the feel of the comic strip, but they are very, very (very, very, very) dated at this point. And of course there’s the classic 80′s movie that’s so camp it’s spectacular.

Other than that though the story of Flash Gordon on tv or in the cinema is pretty sad. The animated version was… nothing to talk about and we absolutely will not talk about SyFy’s horrendous reimagining.

It seems though that another attempt is underway courtesy of Bad Robot. Specifically JD Payne and Patrick McKay who are also writing the script for Star Trek 3 have put together what I guess would be termed a treatment and are currently trying to get a studio deal for a Flash Gordon movie. It seems the two are looking to move away from the overly campy modern perception of Gordon and back closer to the comic strip in tone.

Color me curious.

Out of these, #4 (first/last chapter sentences) is my favourite. How on earth did I never think of this tactic before?

This shall apply to my Marigot draft in due time.

Old stuff from March 2012, but still worth the read.

I really need to work on #2 - carving out that dedicated time so that my life doesn't take over.

I'm good once I get a few consecutive days going.. but then if I miss a day or two, it takes me awhile to get started again.

Words to live by...because we only have that much time until AW (outline) and +Widbook (manuscript launch). About time I headed over to Drive for this right now.

Dealing With Some Haters?

I'd add in here that sometimes you just genuinely dislike someone, but you probably don't 'hate' them. People who are feeling "hate" usually are feeling a different emotion like jealousy, lack of self esteem(because you are letting someone have such control over your self), or jealousy.. Usually it is jealousy... 

These people usually also state in their negative trolly rants,  how they are not jealous.. don't care about you at all actually... and then proceed to tell you in great detail all about how you are effecting their life and worthy of their hate.

Let it go :) An't nobody got time for that! Rock on with your fine self haters. I got better things to do and so do you... ♥ :)
