Plowin' Thru

Listening to: Guster, "I'm Through" (w00t! New Guster EP out!)

Sunday: 1500 words, handwritten.
Monday: Typed up Sunday's words.
Tuesday: 500 words.

Okay. So that's my progress for this week so far. I'm really trying to switch from handwriting to typing. The handwriting, as much as I love it, just takes far too much time. And I hit the 30,000 word mark. Yay!

It seems like there was something else I wanted to blog about...but now I can't recall. Maybe I'll be back later today with more.



  1. Whoo! Way to make progress! I remember when I switched from being a handwriting-only sort of girl to a keyboard-only sort of girl. The transition took months before it started to feel natural, but now I can't imagine going back to those pencil-blistered finger days. Best of luck changing the habit!

  2. Thanks! I'm gonna need it. The weirdest thing is, I didn't start this way. I wrote a novel when I was about 12 (a collection of insane plot twists and Mary Sues), and never once did pencil touch paper. All on the computer. Only when I reached college age did it become necessary for me to handwrite.


If you don't feel that you are possibly on the edge of humiliating yourself, of losing control of the whole thing, then possibly what you are doing isn't very vital. If you don't feel like you are writing somewhat over your head, why do it? If you don't have some doubt of your authority to tell this story, then you are not trying to tell enough. --John Irving
