Lost Weekend

No, I'm not referring to the classic old movie. I'm talking about the past two days. I spent all day Saturday trying to figure out what was wrong with our desktop. No go. So I went ahead and crashed the thing and started it over from scratch. The difference in this time and times past--I had everything saved elsewhere so I didn't lose anything. Needless to say, I didn't get any writing done over the weekend. But I wrote over 1,600 words on Friday. Two steps forward, one step back.

Of course, crashing the computer couldn't be the end of it. I was trying to fast bake a couple of potatoes last night and broke the microwave. Then today, hubby went out to mow the yard. He'd only made a couple of passes around the perimeter when one of the back tires on the lawn mower came right off the rim. We tried to fix it back on, but that was a no-go, too. He's taking it to work with him tomorrow so he can stop at a garage and have it put back on the rim.

Hope your weekend was better than mine. I can't wait for tomorrow morning.



  1. 16K is still a good word count... and better than writing nothing! Sometimes life happens to us, doesn't it? I'm on a MAJOR push to finish polishing and editing my WIP. Hopefully I can find some quiet moments, even though school is starting back this week! YIKES!

  2. When I was in school, we didn't start back until after Labor Day. I think it should still be that way. I feel for you. Best of luck with the polishing and edits!
