November is here and this not-so-young-anymore geek's heart has turned to writing. I'm taking up the challenge of PragProWriMo by committing (forcing, tricking...) myself to write every day. The target is eighty pages by the end of the month.
As someone who has routinely taken years to write an eight page scientific paper (only four pages really if you subtract the tables, figures and compulsory, gratuitous citations of the publications of those who you suspect might review your paper) eighty pages seems an imposing target.
Ah well grasshopper, the longest journey etc. etc.
My chosen geek book working title is Biological Models in Java. That's likely to change as the writing progresses of course... I can already see it wandering towards Mathematical Recreations in Java, Ruby, Groovy, Clojure, R and that other language (you know, the one with the clicking sounds).
