Oh Computers -- My Nemesis, You.

Dude, I've had a kick-butt day of writing. All while using my little egg timer. (g)

My end word count for the day? 3579 words. (whoo whoo!) Time spent writing? 3 Hours. :D

Okay, wanna know what really sucks? LOL. That word count should be over 4K. I was happily about 75 words from hitting that when my computer went BLOTTO. Actually, BOTH mine and my uncle's corrupted at the same time. Weird, huh? Anyway, because of that little snafu, I lost about 350 words and well, I'm too tired to recreate them tonight. I'll scribble down some notes, trying to remember as much as I can...but man, I'm exhausted.

I wrote in 30 minute increments again. Highest word count: 767. Lowest: 149 (plus 350 or so) -- and that was with five minutes to go. :P I soooo would've made that 4K. Big bummer to end an otherwise WONDERFUL day.

Ah well, at least it wasn't more. You would've have heard my scream break the sound barrier had it been much more. (VBG)

Okay...YAY. :) 3600 words kicks some major butt!

Thanks Helene and Precie!

I have that wonderful writer's hangover -- head feels like it's full of rocks and/or cotton and I'm totally exhausted. Feels great. (g)
