April 10, 2007 Wasn't I Writing a Novel?
The goal was: Finish the first draft by the end of March, take April off, begin the Second draft in May.
But the combination of dead-laptop and new-girlfriend shot that in the foot. Of course I’m not complaining about the girlfriend, but I’m still trying to get my money back from HP before I buy a Macbook Plus. And from what I’ve been hearing it might behoove me to wait on the MacBook until the end of the summer to catch the new model and OS.
When I sit in front of the desktop I get into the day-job mentality and I can’t get into a writing mode.
So I’m going to have to start writing by hand. I’ve been reluctant to do this because a) it takes so long and b) I think it’s important to write with two hands to keep both halves of the brain engaged.
But “done is beautiful” and getting somewhere is better than getting nowhere.
