Much ado about nothing

Ernesto came, and really wasn't any worse than a moderate thunderstorm. Everyone panicked over THIS?

Worse thing today wasn't the storm - it was a headache that was impervious to rest or Motrin. I think I did something to my neck that my head doesn't like.

Still on my 1,000 words/day. Will total August up very soon.

Writng update

Well, I'd said I wanted to write 30,000 words in August.

As of today, I have written 11,118 this month.

Now I feel as if I'm getting in the habit of writing every day - it bothers me if I don't. At this point I have written every day since August 6th. And I have written 1,000 words each of those days.

It adds up...

New Computers, writng, and school starts next week!

John and I have spent the last couple of weeks trying to get 3 computers built. That's one for Don, one for John, and one for James. (Me? I took possession of John's, which is a year old and the one we built last year).

At this point all computers are up and running except for Don's. We had to reorder a motherboard for his (this is the second motherboard we've had hassles with). I put a new hard drive into the one I got from John so I would have more space and of course THAT has meant reinstalling stuff and the associated headaches. Not done with that yet but working on it.

I'm aiming to write AT LEAST 30,000 words in August. so far I have 4800 words in - will have to work a little harder to make the goal, but I'm going to give it a shot. Novel is almost at 30,000 words and I am bound and determined to finish the short stories on my hard drive.

James starts 11th grade next week. Hard to believe it! It seems like summer just started and here we are in August!
