Revision 1 / Serial Number 69,105

Dining Room Table
You are seated at a round table in a smallish kitchen nook. The wooden table top is etched with the scars and ghosts of one published novel and a dozen abandoned attempts. The kitchen proper is to the south.
There is a laptop(closed), an adult beverage, and a menacing dread of 2014 here.

>LOOK AT MENACING DREAD
The menacing dread of 2014 is of a standard variety. With luck it should be smaller and gentler in three months.

>SAY HELLO
(To meancing dread)
“Hello sailor!”

>SOUTH
You’ll have to stand up to do that.

>STAND UP
As you start to rise, the menacing dread of 2014 glowers at you and makes a low grumbling sound. You remain seated.

>INV
You are carrying:
nothing

>GET BEVERAGE
Taken. You notice something written on the side.

>READ BEVERAGE
“WARNING: Fizzy Pizzy drinks can be fatal if comsumed near or inside of menacing dread.”

>OPEN LAPTOP
Before your hands even brush the laptop, the menacing dread of 2014 thwacks you on the side of the head.

>G
As your fingers near the lid, the menacing dread of 2014 bellows gibberish in your ear, distracting you.

>G
As you move for the laptop, the menacing dread of 2014 softly sings a sad ballad and you collapse, weeping.

>KILL FEAR
With what?

>WITH HANDS
As with most mental fabrications, the menacing dread of 2014 slips through your clutching grasp.

>KILL FEAR WITH BEVERAGE
The menacing dread of 2014 gleefully devours the adult beverage. It appears to have weakened slightly.

>OPEN LAPTOP
The laptop whirs out of sleep mode. A hodgepodge of fiction in various states of not-quite-perfect fills the screen. A bright yellow TO DO BOX in the corner has one entry.

>READ TO DO BOX
TO DO BOX: “Have more fun and write more stuff.”

>SAY GOODBYE
(To menacing dread)
The meancing dread of 2014 looks back expectedly at you.

>CLOSE FICTION WINDOWS
Most of an empty workspace is now visible on the laptop screen.

>CLOSE TO DO BOX
The workspace is clear and ready for greatness. The menacing dread of 2014 shuffles uncomfortably nearby.

>START BLOG
You type the first letters and the menacing dread of 2014 disintegrates in a swirling cloud of blurry pixels and monochrome ansi graphics.

>LOOK

Dining Room Table
You are seated at a round table in a smallish kitchen nook. The wooden table top is etched with the scars and ghosts of one published novel and a dozen abandoned attempts. The kitchen proper is to the south.
There is a laptop(open) here.
An oppressive guilt of 2013 wanders into the room. It notes your fresh blog and then shuffles back out of the room with a sheepish apology.

>SAVE
Game Saved.
