The spooky kids have been and gone.
They took all of my sweets.
I guess I'll have to go outside,
And buy myself more treats.
The struggles I'm currently having with C.
They're feeling awfully familiar to me.
I've tried to do this once before,
But gave up before I coded more.
Minor bugs are useful.
Though fixing them takes time.
They help you find the larger bugs.
So that your games run fine.
Coding my Framework, there's loads to be done.
It's hard to find time for a sleep.
Yet I've lots of old things that are still left to do,
Like a big bunch of levels for Sheep.
Finding it harder than I had foreseen,
Emscripten is driving me crazy.
I want to ignore it, and leave it behind,
But part of me thinks that's just lazy.
Complications keep appearing.
Something must be wrong.
I'll keep on tweaking bits of code,
And sing a happy song.
It's a chaotic mess in the world of the C's.
The different compilers will do as they please.
Some prefer that, whilst others like these.
It certainly isn't quite coding with ease.
Learning the ways of the C as I go,
I hope that there's nothing I break.
If it all starts to fail and go horribly wrong,
I'll head back to the Monkey that's great.
Yesterday was quite a disaster.
With Android stuff winding me up.
I hope that today will be better,
And the issues don't make me blowup.
Stripping it back and starting again,
The framework compiles where it should.
It runs on my iPhone and also PC,
The signs are most certainly good.
All of the things that need doing,
They all seem to take up my time.
Writing a blog and doodling art,
Then making a short little rhyme.
The sheep continues on its quest,
To see what lies ahead.
Walking right, and leaping over,
spikes that make it dead.
There's nothing quite as scary,
As the chaos of compiling.
The errors jumping out at you,
And files that are all frightening.
A lot of coding skills to learn.
This method must be tried.
I don't mind if I fail.
I still have Monkey by my side.
Relearning the ropes.
There sure are a lot.
Some things I've remembered.
Whilst others, forgot.
Tackling errors as they come.
I fix and I tweak every bug.
Sometimes I delete things and start them again,
Smashing code up, like a thug.
The system is changing.
I need a new plan.
At least with iOS,
I know where I am.
Some weeks are harder,
As games grow in size.
At times such as this,
A deadline's despised.
Another night watching much-missed TV.
I think I've caught up with the pile.
But over on YouTube more videos appear.
I guess I'll be watching a while.
Laziness taking control of me.
I need to get back into action.
I've tried, but have failed to do anything good.
Or at least, to my own satisfaction.
