So I’m all aggravated about the WordPress 5.0 block editor, and I log in to my Gmail account because in all the aggravation of writing that big test post with images in it, I’m making links to some books and I accidentally buy an ebook from Amazon that I don’t need. I’ve already read the … Continue reading Obviously I just don’t like change
I am finally settling into a nice work flow that does not rely on timers to keep me writing. I’m occasionally dipping into more than one story at a time, but I’m surprised at how often I’m staying focused on one book. It’s obvious to me now that something was wrong then, but isn’t that … Continue reading Revisiting a post: The “no timers” thing
I am torn this morning about whether or not I want to update WordPress to version 5.0. I did the update on a smaller site I have (it has about 3 posts) and it went well. No issues to speak of. I also created a post with the new block editor (which I had already … Continue reading Should I update to WordPress 5.0?
I’ve been telling myself for a while I needed to switch to LibreOffice Writer. I canceled my Office 365 subscription because I hated Word 2016 just that much. I spent three years as a subscriber and wasted good money on it and never could get used to it enough to actually use it. I used … Continue reading Microsoft Word or LibreOffice Writer?
Despite my apparent failure when it came to NANO this year, November was actually a really solid month of writing. I did better than October. To find a better month when it comes to sheer word count, I have to go all the way back to October 2016. So yeah, I’m pretty happy with November. … Continue reading November 2018 progress
Days 28–30: I wrote 0 words for the NANO book. I finished out NANO with 20,368 words. I really meant to do better but I got wrapped up in finishing the project I set aside to work on the NANO book and in the end I can’t regret that. Finishing is important. In fact, finishing … Continue reading Days 28–30 of NANO 2018
Days 24–27: I wrote 0 words for the NANO book. I have 20,368 words for NANO this year so far. I do think I’ll get a few more because I’m absolutely planning to write today, tomorrow, and Friday. But I ended up finishing up my finished book instead of focusing on the NANO book and … Continue reading Days 24–27 of NANO 2018
I wish it weren’t so, but I have fallen terribly far behind on my NANO goals. All it took was a week and a half of less than good writing days and suddenly I need 29,620 words to finish and I need them in eight days (seven if you don’t count today, and I can’t … Continue reading Days 20–23 of NANO 2018
Day 19: I wrote 1,109 words for the NANO book (1,299 words total for all my fiction). I’d talk about the day but really there’s nothing to say. It was a day. I wrote some. I wish I’d been more focused and written more. I also wish I wasn’t dealing with being sick. And that … Continue reading Day 19 of NANO 2018
Day 18: I wrote 740 words for the NANO book (754 words total for all my fiction). Those word counts are nowhere near what I wanted for the day but I’ll take what I can get right now. Hopefully, day 19 will be better! I should have more time alone which means I should be … Continue reading Day 18 of NANO 2018
