(Tried playing Beethoven's 9th last night and got chewed out by my daughter two rooms away.)

You were drowning out her heavy metal?  That symphony is best when the walls are shaking.

 

The creating goes on inside my head when I am away from the ability to record the developments.  I would dearly love a pet Dragon.  He/she would follow me around and catch the little flies of inspiration as I worked, then assemble them into logical sequence, market and deliver a cheque every week for the purchase of proper Dragon fodder.

Ooh, a pet dragon!  Now that, Nicola, would be something!!

They eat too much. Goats, stoats, ants, aardvarks, cats, dogs, bears, giraffes...

I got a reputation at work as "the crazy nerd" by trying out dialogue out loud in the break room. Not that I'm complaining, since another associate is giving me a "dead" Chromebook to see if I can "unbrick" it.

 

Unfortunately it's harder to write there now, since I have less freedom to choose my meal break. I guess they're try to foster social engagement.

 

Can I get a "service animal" vest for my pet dragon?

I did learn more hillbilly ( Ozark Mountain style). Kansas City was hometown to the creator of Green Acres, Petticoat Junction, and The Beverly Hillbillies, which is why  Ozark Mountain Hillbilly sounds like a cliché to most baby boomers.

I use Pocket to save quick-hitter internet posts for later research, Google Keep and Evernote for writing down story ideas, and Scrivener for the actual writing work. I use Google Play Music and YouTube to lubricate the writing gears with music. And perhaps my biggest secret weapon is Notepad ++ for quick-and-dirty notetaking.

What was this thread about?

The dialect of pet dragons as opposed to therapy dragons, as opposed to service dragons. 

Stay away from wild dragons!

I thought we were meant to stay away from wild dragons!

We are. We used the domesticated ducks to get pet dragons. Then we trained them to be service dragons, and trained the service dragons to become therapy dragons.
