Oh Poop

So I've managed to crit two out of the three stories for friends. Than my wife phones me to remind me about my nephews birthday party tonight.

Alzheimer's is definitely setting in.

I'd forgotten about the party, even though she'd phoned earlier to ask me to confirm our expected time of arrival.

So I've spent the day reading and commenting on other people's work and now my evening will be spent out. So my writing week has come to a premature end with a grand total of 2847 words.


In three weeks I've managed 14135 words, instead of the 18750 I should have done. I'm guessing I have no show at doing NaNoWriMo come November. I'm only trying to manage half that total in a month and can't even pull that piddly amount off!

The only good news I've had today, is the government stimulus package we are expecting, looks like it'll be enough to buy myself a shiny new laptop. you watch something go wrong with the car or something now...

Have a great weekend.


  1. Don't you love that new laptop smell?

  2. I think I drive my wife nuts with my forgetfulness. I think it may be a male trait more than an age thing. Have fun buying the biggest, baddest, and fastest computer you can find.
