One Line and a Whine

MjAxNC04ZjBlYTU5ZmNiZjdiZjY4Actually, it’s Thursday, and really, I’m only posting this now because it’s better than throwing things at my computer (the computer didn’t do anything wrong, WordPress did, but I can’t actually hurt WordPress from my desk, I can my keyboard).

There…  whining out of the way.  Now to the WIPpet.

Just a short one today.  One small paragraph (WIP maths: 7/7=1) in the same Unnamed Story in the same scene as the last two of my WIPpet Wednesday posts.

At least that had an easy answer. “It was Val’s idea, Alanii. They are Hastor.”

If that intrigues you feel free to check other posts I’ve made in the Unnamed Story.  And for more of this sort of fun… head on over to the WIPpet linky and visit some our other awesome members. Muchas Gracias to Emily Witt for hosting the bloghop in the middle of all the cray-cray life seems to be throwing lately.

  1. Hmmm…now you’ve got me wondering exactly who the “they” are who are Hastor, and what cockamamie-to-Alanii scheme Val’s concocted this time. =)

    And I’m sorry WP wronged you! Don’t hurl things at the messenger!

    • Val be involved in some cockamamie scheme? Him? Never!

      First time I read that I almost wanted to say “Why not, I have two more computers?”, but that’s just silly. No sense in harming a faithful friend over the follies of a distant evil overlord.

      • Distant Evil Overlord? Yikes!

        And you have two other computers, NOW. But things happen. Sometimes in clusters. Seriously, don’t harm the messenger.

        • LOL! You don’t think WordPress is our distant Evil Overloard? Or is that Blogger? 😉

          And yes! Definitely correct about that. I’ve watched the “it all falls apart at the same time” thing too often to really let loose with a temper tantrum.

          Instead… constructive use. I hadn’t planned on a WIPpet this week, and my frustration with the constant failures inspired me to jump in and post one anyway. And fix the goals/check-in post too. 😀

  2. You did well. I wrote two sentences and then deleted them. The same two sentences I wrote a couple of days ago, before I decided opening a new document would make the words flow. If you figure out how to smack WordPress from your desk, please share the process.

    • LOL! Normally I LOVE WordPress. This was the sole exception to that streak, but… it was the kind of exception that could make or break a devoted relationship. 🙂

      I will happily share any info I discover though. Always useful have more people in “the know”

  3. I love WP, too. I just wish they’d stop fixing things that aren’t broken.

    • True. But it’s like my husband’s complaint about middle managers… “They have to change things to justify their existence.”

  4. Ohh…just what was Val’s idea? Very intriguing snippet

    • I always wonder when it comes to small snippets like this… is it too little to be worth reading? Guess not, at least, in this case.

  5. Did WP eat your post? I hate when sites eat my posts.

    Now, what exactly are Hastor? And does that mean something to Alanii?

    • Yep… WP went “munch, munch, crunch, crunch” and left me with nothing but a link to a Facebook video in place of my regular ROW80 check-in (which was really long this time because it was also my goal-setting post too). Bad WP! No more cookies!

      The Hastor? Oh, it’s the family name for Val and Valistii (and Atyr since she’s officially married to Val). They’re… a “fun” crew. Actually gave a good overview of them in this old WIPpet: Hastor Wit/

  6. Oh, WordPress. Sigh. For some reason, WP doesn’t like talking to Gmail sometimes. I sympathize with your frustrations.

    Nice line. Certainly has me curious about what makes that an “easy answer.”

    • Evil WP also seems to like to put my friend’s comments into the spam folder. :-/ That said, I can’t call Blogger any easier to work with when dealing with external platforms.

      Glad the line caught some interest. Sometimes the smallest bits catch my eye…
