So they – them -that lot say let out and let it rant low. No problem!
I hate technology. I hate it. Today I believe my laptop has become possessed by a demon. Everything is in the wrong place. Nothing is familiar. Some time between the hours of 15:00 and 17:00 hours laptop decides it doesn’t want to use Chrome as a browser any longer. I didn’t ask for it to be removed.THANKS!
I have managed to choose MY preferred browser again but it has lost my word press short cut and I can’t remember how to do it again. I am whiny because I am whining! It has all gotten in the way of my happy post..
To top it all off. I managed to finally get two characters talking for NaNoWriMo and like a good swot I was all ready to back up my work on a memory stick. What did I do? I save fours words over my 17 000 words.
Okay luckily for me. I have saved just over 15 000 words on my stick but it has taken me sooooooooo long to get these two to talk. Imaginary friends suck. They do not perform when I want them too. I’m using this month to get a first draft down of 50 0000 words or so and then I can go back and start editing/ tweaking and polishing it. Another bucket list must do.
I now have to go through that awkward moment where the characters speak to each other again. Who the hell knows what they will have to say in the next draft. It took ages for my protagonist to find the right outfit!
The silver lining in all this I still have my 15 000 start. I wanted to write a happy post about Birthdays and my thoughts on them. I had it all figured out. I would get a few thousand words down for NaNoWriMo. I would then get everything prepped and printed for the ‘Anti stigma’ work shop I’m co -facilitating on Wednesday. I could have put together a Q&A for a rather inspirational guest blogger , novelist and all round awesome female who I am dying to interview. So this is where I am at. Frazzled!
