As much as I hoped to make some real headway on the packing and other moving preparations, I didn’t get hardly anything done in that arena.  I ended up reading a couple of books instead, and playing a bit of Warhammer here and there.  The books were most excellent, however.

The first was a very short, but engrossing book on web “psychology,” for want of a better explanation. Neuro Web Design: What Makes Them Click?  relates many different psychological studies and how their conclusions relate to web design, and what drives a visitor’s actions when they’re visiting your web-site.  Very interesting stuff!

Next, I read a book about writing. Master Class in Fiction Writing is very interesting in that there’s actually a lot of “homework” involved. Each chapter requires that you read a different “great” author, and then their style is critiqued for illustrative purposes towards solving various issues that fiction writers regularly encounter. Such as, how to write dialogue, description, plot, etc. Most of the “homework” novels or short stories I’ve read before, so I haven’t been re-reading them – but I might after I finish this book.  I don’t really have time to re-read Sense and Sensibility right now, but maybe next month after I move 😀

One thing I did notice over the weekend is that some of the boxes that I’ve packed with books are starting to split down the corners.  Not good. So I’m going to have to get some good box tape and try to repair them before they get any worse.  Ugh.  I *hate* moving – I’m starting to wonder if I have enough savings to just hire someone to at least do the loading – I doubt it, but it would be nice.  Loading all this stuff by myself is NOT going to be fun…

I hope the new week (and the new month) finds you well and progressing towards all things better and more comfortable! Enjoy!
