device upgrades

the past few years I've been upgrading my phone yearly. Since I lease my phone, I'm allowed to upgrade yearly, but it's getting to be expensive. And since 13 is an unlucky number, I decided that I would skip an upgrade. We'll have to start a poll to see how long that lasts.
I kept dropping my current phone just weeks after getting it and before the protective sleeve arrived and I've been using it will a cosmetic crack on the glass. Off all years to try to skip an upgrade

Going thru old computer files

There is a desktop app for screenwriting called Logline. These apps which there are are surplus of are like the Swiss Army knife off typewriters. Not only do they format a screenplay by facilitating invention tabs, they also save your work. I have yet to come up wit a good filling system, but my eyes are worse for wear when I start social media-ing at night. Everything is a blur and I can only guess I'm pressing the right button on the keyboard. Thanks good for swipe typing.

Logline - screenwriting & outlining app for Mac OSX

I almost forgot that I had bought this app, $25, and I've been pounding the pavement with my head trying to use index cards for outlining. I don't even know where to start. Logline is yet another screenwriting app exclusively designed for computers, as opposed to the hundreds of screenwriting apps designed for mobile phones.

1 also purchased Celtx which I hear has an index card feature. I really should spend more time learning to use log-line. Because it doesn't come in a mobile phone version, I am limited to utilizing it in my writing ventures cooped in a corner of the house behind my desktop computer. Bleh. My ideas come sporadically when I'm on the toilet, outdoors, gardening, watching TV, etc.

But I'll tell you what. I'm also going to use Scrap when I need a visual storyboard. All this and more will be included to my blog updates here at blanketsin (as well as tmtwngm).

Yes it is difficult keeping focused on writing while working a day job. I find myself at the end of a workday trying to recharge for the next day by vegging out in front of the TV. I'm going to post my typecast as full page scenes. Just wait. I think they'll look pretty in the community blog (and behind a cut
here.)
