Am still determined to get something down on paper for my self-imposed September writing challenge. I've managed 3000+ words since Monday, which isn't bad for me. The trouble is I can't add them to last weeks words because I changed stories. Oh yeah, you knew I would. That last attempt sucked way too much. Unfixable. Dumb idea to begin with. The only thing worse than spending a week writing a bad book is spending a week and one day on it (go Dr Phil).
So I'm getting there... sort of. Hunting around the blogs in my spare time (ha!) I found that Book Thingo are doing a reading challenge--as many books as you can read in September. I was very tempted--very. That sounded like a brilliant way to avoid my own challenge and still call it educational. In a rare bout of wisdom I have decided against it. But perhaps others may be interested, it sounds like a fun thing to do.
BTW does anyone else have false nails? I've never had them in my life but decided to treat myself for the conference, as I have a relative who does them cheap for me. They look great, and since my hands have been ravaged by constant washing since I had kids and I've never really kicked the nail-biting habit, it's been a pleasant change. I feel almost glamorous (yes, quite a change). But I can't type for shit. I have to keep going back and making corrections because my nails get in the way and make mistakes all their own. It's annoying and is slowing me down. I'm a milimetre away from ripping them off but am still holding out hope I and my laptop will get used to them. Anyone else had this problem?
Who's still waiting patiently for new cover to get the go ahead.
