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!
