WIP Day - Mad Typist

Hello bloggers, writers, random stumblers and YOU. *waves*

How is your day going?
Mine is... well...
It is going.
It is a day in the life of Jenni.

I am a mad typist.
In so many different ways.

Mad because...
My desktop computer bit the dust.  Ok, not all of it bit.  Just the main hard drive that I have all my programs, Operating System, and some files on.  Can you imagine how happy that made me?  NOT.  We tried many ways to get it to wake back up, (so happy I have a computer geeky hubby) but nothing worked.  So, now the hard drive is with a friend who is going to see if he can save the files that are there, and we are installing a much smaller hard drive to use for the time being.  At least it is something, right?
Sigh.

Good thing my many, many photos are saved on a separate drive, and are safe.
Oh, and I am religious about backing up my writing.  So it is safe too.
And I have amazing geeks in my life. *smiles*


So it is mostly just me grumbling that my computer hates me.

Mad also because...
I am a mad, crazy, awesome typist.  Yes I am!

I started Camp NaNoWriMo 10 days ago, and as of last night have recorded 19,250 words! Yay! *does happy dance*
(Have to do a shout out: Cabin mates, you are AWESOME.)

ITB is coming along quite nicely.  I am having fun seeing how this story progresses.  And being in Dawn's head is awesome.  I must say, I do like her.  The story seems to be writing itself at the moment, and I am just along for the ride.  Hopefully it stays that way!  I have a few things plotted out, a few in the dark with no idea what will happen, and the rest is some where in between.  I love this stage!

I do have a character question for you all:
What is something a guy would say/do/act like that would be
intimidating, but you would still feel drawn to him regardless?

Oh, and I made a Tumblr.  I know I know.  That, mixed with discovering more about Twitter, and I am becoming a lost case, very very fast.  Noooo...

Quick PN Update: You know, same old.  Sitting... waiting... pondering existence... If (whenever I do) I do have an update, you will of course be one of the first to know.  You know how this goes...  The waiting game. Isn't it great?

How are you doing?  WIP-ing along?  Any exciting news?  Do share!

Happy Writing!

I've started doing the seven days in hell writing contest sort-kinda thingy, lol. I start today because I am a rebel and yesterday didn't work for me. So far, going strong, but I need to turn my internet off again and start back writing.

I'm glad ITB is going well!

Dia - I don't believe I have heard of this challenge! Sounds insane. Good luck!

Jenni - Insane doesn't even begin to explain this! It really gets me going though. You should try it when you know you have an easy week ahead!
