It's getting to be the end of the year where many of us make our New Year's Resolutions. I know last year, I made the resolution to read more and for the first, let's say, 6 months? I did do more reading, sometimes as much as one book a week... I'm not going to lie and say I'm still reading that much, but overall; I did more reading this past year than I have in, say, the past 5 years?

How about you guys? Any writer's who wanna make Resolutions about writing more? Anyone going to make the resolution to read more?

Let's hear it.

Yes.
But I don't have time anymore unfortunately.
No time to just sit down, relax, and think about writing.
But yeah, I'll make a resolution about writing more. Fat chance though.

Yeah, I feel your pain. I don't get much writing in because I work til about 5 everyday and on days where I'm not spending time with Danny Cross, I'm typically so tired, I can't really get much done.

But if you love something, you gotta JUST DO IT!

Like Nike.

Haha, true. I guess in a sense I still do write. Just not stories like I used to. Now I do scripts for filming, so that counts, right? ^^

Eh. I'm new to the whole 'Write-Edit-DisplayOnWeb' deal. I have loads of crap here, but I'm not sure if it's quite up to standards in this forum.
Then again...

There really are no "standards" here. I think the great thing about posting here is that you don't have to be some sort of expert on literature to be accepted. We [at least, in the past, not sure about whatever generation took over during my absence] have always been fair to new writer's, attempting to show them new techniques before being a batch of elitist jerks.

Well, there are some elitist jerks when Ninva comes around :rolleyes: But most of us are cool :)

I usually force myself to sit down and make myself read a good book and i usually go through the trouble of carrying around an extra book so whenever i get the chance i can read them.

Uahmm I read through the Percy jackson series including the lost hero and im probably going to start the ranger's apprentice later. Ill also follow with Riordan progress with the next one

This year, I ended up being second in a writing competition that had contestants from 5 cities in my country. Since then, I made a short story, but nothing more.

I don't really have the time to write anything... between school, and social life I have just a coupple of spare hours I usually spend on playing starcraft 2.

Writing is serious business, when you want to have as an end product something enjoyable. An hour or so a day, just won't cut it...

So, come to think about it, before actually reading this thread, no, I didn't plan to write more... infact my list of things to do in 2011 was quite short, because in 2010 I did everything and more what I was hoping to do...

Then again, I do <3 writing and reading, so, yes, deffinetly, writing more is one of the things as of now.

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though

    I think we need to add something to the bottom of the front page that shows the Headline News forum that has a link to go to the News Forum Index so people can see there is more news. Do you guys see what I am saying, lets say you read all the articles on the front page and you get to the end and it just ends, no kind of link for MOAR!
