@Mps You're welcome. Also good to know that a kids' book can be 100 words long, or 5,000, 12,000, even 35,000 words long. Tell the story the way you want. Good night.
@randolph
@Mps P.S. Don't worry about the first draft. It's always crap. Just write it. The story takes shape in draft two, and the polishing in draft three.
@randolph
@Mps On that note, I have a meeting in 8 hours. Going to try grab some shut-eye. Have a good evening.

As for where to start with that, make the protagonist a young person. Give her a name. The rest will follow.
@randolph
@Mps Challenge: write it for kids.
@randolph
@Mps Yes. Yes it does. Is there a side project you could do when you're not at work to keep you from going insane?
@randolph
@Mps Busy, and not just for fun. Did a talk in Edmonton this weekend and drove back to Calgary today. Hosting our own version of the conference on this weekend. Busy busy busy. How's work?
@randolph
@Mps *wave* It's quiet here this weekend.

A few weeks ago, Mailgun closed my account, after my South African colleague logged into it (using his own credentials) and we were put on probation, so I complained. Today we got a monthly invoice. I can't even email them to ask them to turn it off.

I'm an excellent beta tester

@randolph But if you clear the cache, replies don't work. #yawp
@randolph
Oh I see. Yawp refreshes the timeline if you go into the account screen and then cancel out of it.

@larand Nah. Overrated.

@paulyhedral ☺️
@randolph
@33MHz Yeah, and the only padding we were allowed were shinguards. Unsurprisingly, there was a good overlap with cricket batting skills.
@randolph
@33MHz 11 players a side, similar configuration to a soccer team.
@randolph
@33MHz Yeah, much shorter. http://www.bytesports.com/images/products/large/a121d77e93c49f3b393b82a3df3f205a.jpg

Hockey balls are white, hard, hollow plastic. Roughly the same size as a baseball.
@randolph
@33MHz I remember the time before rollerblades. I've skated three or four times in my life. I'm better on skis.
@randolph
@33MHz "Hockey" where I come from 😄
@randolph
@33MHz I did. I played the position of left back. My hockey stick was right-handed because my dad was cheap, and I taped the handle myself with yellow grip tape. This was in Queenstown, in the Eastern Cape.
