I haven't blogged for a while because I've been pressing on with the book. I'm over 40,000 words now, so its going reasonably well. I've just decided to totally restructure the way I've written it. Instead of dealing with each theme separately (politics, relationships etc.), I'm going to go back to the traditional way and organise it by lyric. BUT I'll still pick out the themes so that I can produce some graphs of how they compare by subject matter and over time. Its a cut and paste job, so while its complex, I don't think I've wasted too much effort.
In the meantime, I'm feeling a bit stale, so I've decided to take up MOOCS (Google knows what I mean) in my spare time. My first one is: http://iai.tv/iai-academy/courses/info?course=physics-what-we-still-dont-know. I'm part way through and its brilliant!!
The new hairstyle is great -I've wanted this style all my life. Whether I could have coped with it when I was working is another thing, as its high maintenance.
We saw ENO's Carmen at our local cinema and really enjoyed it. The best special effects movie I have ever seen is Jurassic World in IMAX 3D.
Dinosaur is coming for two days without his parents so sleep might be limited and energy depleted.
