Walking Lightens the Load & Lifts the Mood

Every time I get stuck writing, I take a walk. Unless of course it’s raining. When I need to do some thinking, I take a walk. Unless of course it’s raining. I like walks. Long ones. Short ones. Ones around the park. And since I discovered the Endomondo app for Blackberry, I quickly downloaded it to my Curve 8530. This is my second day using it and I’m quite impressed with it – you must have an account with Endomondo, but it’s all good as it is free.

I took it out for a spin yesterday and the GPS feature impressed me, as well as telling letting me know my personal accomplishments. You can draw out  routes on the website and download them on your phone, setting them as your goals for the day. I plan to start with short distances and increasing them every day little by little – possibly at .20km increase a day.

The walk today snapped me to attention – though also let me know how out of shape I am – leaving my mind less muddied. I’m off to read and then get a couple of pages down. And for those of you who are wondering, I’m not partaking in NaNoWriMo this year. It’s just coincidence that the writing bug bit me recently.

Amazon teases with Kindle for BlackBerry

Amazon Kindle for BlackBerry brings my hopes crashing down

I’m not going to lie to you – I brimmed with excitement when I saw the banner on Amazon yesterday. I was more than excited. Amazon had just won me over; I was seconds from selling my soul to the digital devil. Then I found out the horrible news. Listed under their supported devices were the BlackBerry Curve 8520 and 8900. Nowhere in site, the BlackBerry 8530. Well, there goes my soul selling.

Maybe Barnes & Noble Nook will hear my cries

Patiently, I will wait. Hoping that something good will come my way. Maybe it’ll never happen, or maybe Barnes & Noble will hear my cries and create a Nook application for a BlackBerry Curve 8530. We’ll have to wait and see, won’t we?
