The musings of a young novelist

How is that spelled?

I’ve been without my computer for the past few days because of a hard drive problem.  All of my information was backed up, thank goodness, before the hard drive crashed (including my manuscripts, thank goodness!).  The Apple store replaced the hard drive and I just picked up the computer today, so I’m still setting up my ‘brand new’ computer and re-setting it to all my old specifications.  I missed my computer for the 2 days it was gone!  Don’t get me wrong…there are LOTS of computers in our house that I can use, but I love MY computer. :)  (Yes, I’m a bit of a snob.)

I recently learned that trying to write while half awake generally doesn’t go well for me.  Here is a conversation I had with myself not too long ago…I realized how funny it was and thought you might like to see what goes on in my rather twisted brain.

“Callie had forg…”

How do I spell that?

F-O-R-G-O-T-T-O-N

(enter red squiggly line under the word)

No, that’s not it.

F-O-R-G-O-T-O-N

(enter red squiggly line)

Ahh! Well I don’t think it’s ‘forgetted.’  Perhaps “Forgottonized?”

(Use spell check)

OHHH. F-O-R-G-O-T-T-E-N!

“Callie had forgotten–“

 

Please tell me I’m not the only one who has conversations with myself while writing.  I mean…I need to tell somebody about all these ideas in my head!  :)

This is one of my favorite quotes.

  1. Yeah, well, I talk to myself too. And I also have trouble spelling the most usual words at times. :P

    Thanks for putting my button up. :) I just now noticed it and thought, “That was a fun thing to make . . . wait a minute, this isn’t my blog!” :)

      It’s my pleasure to have your button here! I hope it gets you lots of traffic (though it isn’t like there are a ton of visitors to this blog!) :)
