Can’t Count the Words for the Challenges…
But figured since my writing has been so off and on for the last five months because of the eye issues, I had better spend time back in my writing chair kicking off the dust.
Feels great, let me tell you. Can not believe how much I have missed being in that chair over the last five months.
I sat down tonight and said, “I’m home!”
Couple things I noticed. I am not typing as clean as I used to because the eye is not totally back, so getting letters mixed up when my fingers get off the keys or in the wrong spot (I only use four fingers, so easy to do.) But honestly, I don’t care. Given time it will clean back up.
Second, my keeping track system of files which was fresh in my mind the night before I went blind, seems to be lost in the mists of time.So that is going to take a little bit of time to get back in my head.
Third, I had a little bit on a new Cold Poker Gang novel done, and had dinged at it over the months at times, but not so surprisingly, there isn’t much there. I just couldn’t bring myself to do much on it with the font blown up by a factor of twenty. Too much into the words.
Now the font just needs to be slightly larger and I have computer glasses so all is right. I might just go back and finish that novel quickly. (Meaning write almost all of it, but finishing sounds better. (grin)) I seldom have five month breaks between starting a book and finishing it. Maybe like never happened before.
So the challenges are going to be great fun and more people have jumped in because of the half price sale going on. (see last posts) Remember, every week I will be doing a video on both of the challenges talking about my total, or just giving my total, or doing a motivation thing if it strikes me.
All you have to do is every week or two or every month if that is better, write me an email with your total so far. Don’t have to say anything, I will not be judging you in any way, shape or form. I am just the challenge for you to push against.
Caution… I might be slow in the next month or so as I gain speed from this eye thing, but the Time of Great Forgetting does not bother me in any fashion and fall has been my best writing time of the year historically. So better to be out ahead of me if you can. (grin)
Fun writing times ahead!
