Finally, some writing...

I've not written a word for ages (not literally, but you know what I mean). I think I've been intimidated because when I got my laptop, I got a limited version of Office - like you can use it 30 times or something before you need to register it and I keep saving those times for important things like resume updates. I should just bite the bullet and register.

The other thing taking me away from writing is the preparation for my Japan trip. I've got to search important things like Ninja training (oh yeah, I'll surely be doing that) and learning the language and stuff.

So today, since I'm not working, I actually wrote. Still not real writing, just typing up a story that I lost the soft copy of when my old laptop died but I think it's a better story for having been retyped. I've tightened it up quite a bit.

Hopefully this will get the juices flowing, so to speak, and I'll be far more productive in future.

I love me

More specifically, I love the me that once apon a time decided it was a good idea to email my novel and other writing to myself and save it in my web mail. I'd totally forgotten I'd done that until I found it last night.

I surely did a happy dance because that beats the hell out of retyping the damn thing.
