Thanks all for joining me on the ride that was this write-a-thon. I totally missed my goal of writing stories every day, but I still managed 25 of them, which I’m going to be happy with, even if most are crap.

Here, on the other hand, are two stories that are anything but crap:

Never Yawn Under a Banyan Tree, by Nibedita Sen

Portrait of My Lover as a Zebra, by Tegan Moore

These are both stories written by classmates of mine from CW. Absolutely check them out.

I’d like to post at least once a week—just to keep the blog alive, you know? We’ll see how it goes. I’m going to aim at Wednesday.

Not sure what I’ll post about. I’ve been trying to learn to write music with this program called LilyPond.

Being blind, writing music can be fraught with difficulties. This program is accessible and lets you enter the names of the notes as alphabetic characters and do all the other fun stuff with punctuation and numbers. On the other hand, it’s almost too much like coding for me. I’ve figured out how to create a score, turn it into a. midi file, and then using GarageBand add some fairly decent instrumentation to it.

I’ll try and attach this first, extremely rough piece of music. It’s about thirty seconds of piano and you get points for every wrong note you can hear out of a max of I think like a million.

Anyway, we’ll see if I can upload that or not.

Talk later,
