Crunch Time, Pt. 2/3

Why is it, at the times in my life when I most need a computer, mine fails? Junior year in high school: my term paper is due in two days and my disc drive burns out, thereby preventing me from using the strange, CD-ROM-based word processor I had at the time. Second year of college: my laptop’s hard drive MELTS, at which point I discover that the backups I had made of my files are all corrupt. NaNo 2009: I have less than two days left in which to finish my 50k and my computer decides now, now is the time in which to run slower than molasses in January for no obvious reason.

Really, what’s that riff? Stop. Work properly. There is no excuse for this shabby crap. I have words to write.

Also, Holly Lisle’s newest course, How to Revise Your Novel, has gone live! I am happy to say that, despite a slow computer and my ever-wonky internet connection, I got signed up right away. But there’s no time to think about that! This is November still; no editing, just writing. Back to work!


About Joyce

Joyce Sully lives in Southern California. She graduated from UC Irvine. She likes to knit and cook and play video games. But mostly she writes. Joyce writes short stories and novels, songs and poems, scripts and instructions to feed the cat if she stays out late. She has been spotted as far afield as Seattle, but travel makes her nervous. She believes in magic and dragons and ghosts, but is not convinced her next-door neighbors are real.
