Yesterday was the start of National Novel Writing Month and I did great! I had to put it off until 11-o-clock at night but I typed for an hour and managed to get 863 words out! I got super tired after that so I had to go to bed.
Then today while my daughter was taking a nap I sat down to write some more. I had writen my story on Google Docs, so I could have it anywhere I go. I went to open the document today and for some reason my computer doesnt want to load half of the google page, including the link to open my document. I tried refreshing and back steping and clicking away madly but to my dismay..nothing worked. So now I am back to square one! I cant remember what I typed, only the general tone of it. It was probably for the best though because it seems to me that I am a much better writer when I hand write. I type much faster of course, when handwriting it takes me an hour and a half at least to get what I typed in an hour. The benefit of hand writing though, is being able to see it tangiblely (please refer to my blog about spell check) in front of you, and look back and write in, or out. I think Im going to take my computers lack of cumputering skills as a blessing and start in my notebook. My beautifully lined, solid, notebook.
So tonight, after heroes and Dancing with the Stars, I will start all over handwriting my soon to be Best Selling Book :) Thinking Positive works really well for me.
