I was wasting time yesterday and Merrilee and Anna suggested that I sort out my google wave and come chat with them. Which I did… thanks girls for the intro to how it works! I think it would have taken me a little longer to work out without all your previous chat to read through.
I must say that it feels a little odd seeing people typing – you can see everything, any mistakes, corrections etc – after awhile you stop thinking about that. But it was fun! And eventually the procrastination led to Merrilee suggesting we get some writing done. With 5 minutes on the clock initially I powered through not only 250 words, but the wall I had been building around my story!
I was so thrilled!! I’m still thrilled.
But, silly me, I almost stopped writing then. The old ‘hey you got your words for the day!’ thing kicked in and I just about shut down the document. Thankfully, the smart part of me chimed in with ‘you’re on a roll here babe, keep going! You’ve only been writing for five minutes, imagine how far you could get?’ I pushed on, and doubled my total words on the story. I got through the first part of it and I feel SO good.
Now I get to move onwards, to a bigger attack and more gore and yum, delicious. I might even get this thing up on the blog before Christmas like I had hoped!
Oh, speaking of. I finally got around to putting up the story I wrote for the search term challenge. You’ll now find it over on the Story Time page.
Anyways, better go! Am off to try on shoes at a friends house this morning. She’s a lifesaver, so pleased I don’t have to spend money on something I’ll wear almost never!
