Honesty in stories. Truth in words.

Wednesday crept up on me…

Well, it’s almost ten am on Wednesday and I just realized that I forgot to post something!  Grr!

Nothing much exciting has happened around here, other than being extremely busy in preparation for Christmas. That and a few of us have gotten colds (unfortunately, I am in the lucky few). Writing has been pushed to the back burner despite my efforts to keep it a priority. I suppose it is still a priority, just…lower on the list of priorities. ;)

Clara’s Story is progressing slower than I would have liked, but it is still moving along. I’ve also been sneaking in some time on a secret story, which I am incredibly excited about. I am going to attempt to keep this story shorter than my other books, which seem to be a consistent 85,000 to 130,000 words.  We shall see how much I can control myself.

I recently got a new keyboard! Typing on my laptop on my desk was giving me horrible wrist pain, so I began looking into one of those silly-looking curved keyboards. And finally, I found one that I absolutely love! It helps my wrist pain substantially and after I got used to the funny angle of typing, I can type just as fast on the new one as I can with my laptop’s keyboard. Here’s a picture of my writing area (one of them, at least) :

Please excuse the messy desk. :)

I will not be posting next week because it will be Christmas Eve’s Eve, and my family will be rather busy. So merry Christmas, one week early!

  1. It seems that writing gets rather neglected for me too in the month of December. :) Life is busy with other things. It just makes me more eager for January because then I’ll really be able to dive back in to writing!

    Sometimes it can be a very good challenge to make yourself writing a shorter story. Have you ever tried writing short stories that were no longer than 10,000 words?

    And Merry Christmas to you too! :)

      Thanks for commenting! No, I haven’t tried to write a story shorter than 10,000. I should really try…just to see if I can! :)
