Honest, I’ve been trying, really I have! Life is not being very kind to my writing though. The first day I had hoped to get some done when Hubby took the girls out, but they ended up not being gone long and I didn’t get another chance until bed time. Diligently I took the laptop to bed with me thinking I could crank some words out then.
The laptop had other ideas. For some reasons all the internet settings had disappeared, and to be honest I don’t know what they are so I couldn’t just put them back in – I’d started writing in google docs earlier in the day, this wasn’t helpful. So I opened Word, thinking I’d just start again (I only had one sentence at that point!), but it seems we’ve used it too many times without putting the code in (which I still haven’t gotten around to finding….) so I couldn’t type a thing!
So I switched to notepad…. ack, how horrible!!! There isn’t even a word count on it! So I thought I had written around 500 words before calling it a night – turns out after I entered it all into the PC this morning it was only 310. Ah well, it was a start, even if not a very good one.
Today has not been much better. My children are conspiring against me, and while I love them to bits, I really actually want to write at the moment. I’ve doubled my word count though and have 20 mins left on the laptop before the battery goes flat, so heres hoping I crack that 1,000 word mark tonight.
Wish me luck! And happy children who sleep well, and sweet dreams for myself too (why is it that I only dream about getting drunk when I’m pregnant??? And in my dreams I always know I’m pregnant and I wouldn’t be drinking but I am anyway? Perhaps because it’s the only place I can safely have a glass of wine right now?…. I ramble…)
Off to write some more….
