I have been writing as a habit for the last 441 days, since September 8, 2013. Unfortunately on 20 of those days I did not post my output. Some days I forgot and some days I just didn’t write. However, during that period I have written more than a half-million words.
Writing on a daily basis is one of the best habits I have ever developed. Excessive drinking and smoking are two of the most obnoxious habits that I have broken. I’m happy to be writing. I’m happy not to be drinking or smoking. There may be hope for me yet.
I am still tinkering with my Windows laptop and trying to get it to accept Wacom digital tablet driver. I’m currently in the middle of doing a complete restore on the laptop software because it would not accept that driver. I’m almost at the point of running back to Best Buy and whining to them to “fix it.” I need this laptop to be operational so that I can install the Xara software which I intend to use to finally get around to making digital cartoons.
Today’s exercise of writing at least 1667 words for NaNoWriMo is done. It is a Saturday morning and I started late and I finished late and sporadically but below are the results of that writing or should I say dictation.
The task was completed sporadically because of the constant assistance from my new kitty, KC. She is so proud of her help.
