I spent the day messing with my fonts library, caused Word to screw up with some of my most useful fonts, spent way too much time deleting and installing one particular font that just would not display correctly after I’d installed newer versions, deleted my font cache again, (and again), and finally got things working correctly by digging out some files I’d put into a backup folder in case I messed something up.
I do appreciate that I had the foresight to do that.
Because boy did I mess something up.
At one point I had Word displaying everything in an italic font for what was supposed to be a regular font and I have no idea how that happened.
But what a waste of a good day. I can’t even understand why I did this.
I finally started writing at 11:24 and spent most of an hour and three minutes editing stuff that probably didn’t need to be edited.
Oh, and about mid-day, I reached across my kettle while it was boiling water for my coffee and steamed the crap out of my arm. Right where it touches the edge of my keyboard when I type. Those burns hurt! Of course it blistered. It’s a very ugly burn, in fact, and will probably leave a scar.
So “Yay” for today.
I’m ending my writing session with a negative word count. I knew when I sat down today that tomorrow was not going to be a writing day and that I really needed to make some progress today.
I did none of that.
It was just not a great day. I’m glad to see it over.
