Let me begin this by saying that it is never a good idea to start removing bloatware from a new laptop on which one has stored the first, say, 4,000 or so pages of one’s novel. And, just in case one does something stupid like that, it’s never a good idea to pick up that new laptop and throw it against a wall in anger.
I did one of those things. I’ll let you figure out which.
Yesterday around 3 p.m. I found myself way behind on my daily word count… WAY behind… like 4,000 or so
pages words short. By midnight last night, I’d managed to recoup about half of my losses, though, and by waking up extra early this morning I managed to make up a bit more.
Now my progress (and mood) look a bit more like this. (For those of you who like keeping track of such things, I’ve included that link in my sidebar under the NaNoWriMo image.)
UPDATE: This cartoon made me spit coffee.
