My trap is back. And hunting keeps going again. I had some HDMI problems, but now they're gone.
Name hunting - again. The very same 3 people, who just do not seem to cooperate with me. Crazy! I hope I will find their family and place and that everything goes finally right and I can go on with the story. As long as those stubborn characters refuse to cooperate, I can't write forward, not that story.
My car is back at home. It had springs broken. Now they are OK. How long? That I don't know. Maybe the back springs will cut off next summer. They cut off last summer too.
Well, I'm glad your car is back home, but it sucks that you've been having problems with it...and anticipate more problems. *Frown*
Schnujo's Cold! :
I am sad too. My car is more than 10 years old. It is neat from the outside. But if those spring problems keep coming every six months, I don't know what to do.
Are you taking your car to the same place? Maybe try another one. I had a place that kept finding 1, but only 1 thing wrong each time I took it in. I didn't ever have the money to fix it, so I'd wait until the next paycheck and bring it in and weirdly, they'd fix that, yet run across another 1 thing wrong that I had to come back to get fixed next paycheck. Eventually after several times, they apparently weren't keeping track of how they were cheating me and told me I needed something fixed that they'd just fixed a couple months before. I told them they'd just fixed it and they were like, "Oh, we must have your car mixed up with someone else's."

Being young and stupid, I went back the next time I needed something fixed. They told me I needed new brakes. I told them they had just been replaced a few months before. They told me that whoever said they'd replaced them lied to me, that they were the original brakes on the car. I told them I'd taken a class and replaced the brakes myself, so I know they were replaced. Again, they said they must have my car mixed up with someone else's. Yeah, I quit going there! *Pthb*
I am so glad the battle with my characters is getting somewhere.
The first member of this new family was Grace, Grace Helen. Finding her maiden name and the married name was easy. Finding her husband was easy too. Finding the name of the husband was a bit harder, but when Grace got me convinced her husband is Michael Donald, I decided "so be it, Michael he is."
Michael and Grace started to speak to me almost right away. I know little about them, but I know for sure they are expecting. They told me themselves. I wrote it down.
At the moment that's all I know about them.
Characters are funny that way. I'm often caught by husband as I talk to my computer, asking a character, "Well if you don't want to do THAT, what DO you want to do? Work with me here, you maddening shapeshifter!" *Laugh*
I know some folks find it really helpful to just write dialogue between characters. Nothing that's supposed to go in the story/novel, but just to get to know them. Maybe have them talk over dinner or fight in the car or whisper in the moonlight or whatever. What do they say to each other? It can enlightening. *Smile*
At least 2 times some Anonymous person has given me that strange thing. I just want him or her to see this. Thank you! I appreciate it very much.
Is it the GP Prank? I love when folks are doing that. Great fun! If you ever want to do it, it's easy. Just send random folks (people on the newsfeed, people online, people who fanned you, people you fanned, whoever) a random amount of GPs and tell them they've been GP pranked. Be sure to click the box to keep it anonymous, though. I sometimes forget that. *Laugh*

Whether it was someone sending you GPs or something else, congrats and I'm glad you appreciate it!
I've made some needlepoint stitches today and bought some stuff and sent some stuff in the snail mail. I am so relieved I got the snail mail stuff on its way at last! I've waited for weeks for the right moment. Today it came.
Yeah. Someone asked what I read. Well, I have read the names of the characters and some scientific stuff about needlework and what it does to the person's mental side.
I sit at my computer. I'm reading long list of plant names in Finnish and in Latin. The Latin ones help, when one must find a name for a place.
I found names for a few characters of mine. I can't but hope they'll talk to me once they get used to their family and relatives.
I just read about something called "Ooh, shiny!" - syndrome.
I admit...I have it.
Is it under control?
I don't know.
Why?
Well, if I get an idea (like I got recently) that character X could be character Y's parent or sibling, I do my best to find out if they can be related in such a way.
One time I thought Q and R were S's parents.
Later I found out R couldn't be S's mother, and that S belongs to totally different family. I put her there.
That led to at least...2 or 3 new siblings (sons) to her and her "new husband". I know at least 2 of the sons have said "I do!". 1 son has the wife I planned him to have. I wonder, if his brother can get his heart mate too. That heart mate thing hasn't been completed yet. But I'm sure I'll find out about it sooner or later.
I just found yet another character's birth family. I think I've found a few others' birth family too. I just haven't had time to put them there.
A name of a book could be: "Roaring of the Stormy Sea".
