But I'm writing, and this is what matters. I also discovered something this week - that I can write pretty well and pretty fast too on the phone. It's a Nokia E63, qwerty keyboard and MS Word-supporting device. I used to read crit works and other review/bought PDF files on it, but had never tried to write (other than the basic text messages). So yesterday I was 'stranded' somewhere and was waiting for hubby to come pick me up, had like 45 minutes to kill. I take out the phone but my mind's not into reading. Th plan for yesterday was to write. So there I go, what could it cost to try to write on here? I create a new doc, and would you believe it - my thumbs are flying on the keyboard and I've clocked 700+ words down in 30 minutes!
This buoyed me and when I came home, Bluetoothed the file to my laptop and started to build upon this writing. By late yesterday afternoon, I was 1900 new words into the story!
Wasn't helped by the fact that every night I'm having a screaming migraine that could put a banshee out of a job, but hopefully today I'll be able to pursue upon that same line and keep on writing.
Peeps, let me tell you - it's good to be back!
From Mauritius with love,
