Be Vewwy, Vewwy Qwiet - I'm Hunting Words

Looks like my new writer's confab is meeting a week earlier than I thought. So I'm going off-line today to finish the damn first draft. To avoid temptation, I'll be working on the ancient laptop that not only has no internet connection, but has no means to store and/or transfer data. I wasn't joking about the ancient part. Anyway, wish me luck as I sit at the kitchen table in the evil hard chair and get this sucker finished. If all else fails, I can always tackle cleaning the refridgerator!

If you are like me, there are half empty jars of . . . stuff in the back of the refridgerator that have been their since the Truman administration. (Actually, I wasn't born when there was a Truman administration—I just like saying "since the Truman administration.") So good luck on the rough draft, because you never know what might happen if you dare to touch those jars.

Good luck! I'm sure it will go well!

My fridge is like my bro's - Bill and I are too much alike. But it's important to keep the beer at the front.

Ah, Man! Your industry shames me. It really does. Okay, tonight I turn off the History Channel and get my fingers moving also. It's not like I don't have deadlines staring at me.

Making progess, have to stop and make dinner! Fortunately, if I'm reduced to cleaning the fridge it shouldn't be too bad. I freaked out a few weeks ago & gave it a good scrubbing. It is amazing how fast stuff starts growing, though.

I have a fantasy of my family only eating fresh, organic food which I buy every few days, we eat up, then I replenish the supply. We'd have a small hoard of non-perishables in the event Y2K ever comes to pass, or the terrorists win, or whatever. And our fridge would be a place of zen and good health.

Angie, MG isn't fantasizing - she's talking about my fridge. =) Happy writing!

Oh dear. You're working ahead. Jeez. I never write anything until the last minute. Oh yeah, it IS the last minute! Guess I'd better get outta here and start writing!

Angie, Dana IS fantasizing.

All right, you Bunion Buddies - Back in your corners! You didn't really thing Mindy would let you have the last word, did you Dana? God knows it's never worked for me. And Dana, you can come & stock up my refridgerator any time!

Writing's coming along nicely. Going to bed & will finish first draft tomorrow. Wow. What a crazy, hair-pulling-outa-the-head-yet-oddly-productive writing day.

I work on the laptop when the net distracts me. In my neck of the woods, wireless isn't available for it, lol.

Evil hard chair sounds so menacing!

:o)

Wireless is the devil on the laptop. I go to Starbuck's sometimes to write because they make you pay for the internet there, and damned if I'm gonna pay for the internet at Starbuck's when I'm already paying for it at home!

I have to do the same. My laptop isn't hooked up so there are no distractions. Good luck.
