Define WELL?

Okay. I noted this morning that the type-in on HAWKSPAR was progressing well. Time to define “well.” Have been slogging the type-in all freakin’ day, and I’m now on page 169.

Of 940.

I forgot how heavily I’d rewritten the early chapters. Ugh.

I did some of that [TC] stuff, and thought I was cheating. 🙂

I hear you on the change of definition of “well”. I’ve been progressing “well” on my Forward Motion dare, but have now realized that tomorrow’s “well” must surpass today’s if I’m to complete said dare.

Best of luck. I’ll be working the weekend right alongside you.

Did you say 940 pages? Sounds like sure fire carpal tunnel.

Just think of those chapters towards the end with less work, something to look forward to at least.

Hugs Holly. I know that overly optimistic outlook all too well, but if it got you rolling on page one, then it was worth it. Good luck with the rest.

Mmmmmm… ouch. Good thing it’s a long weekend? We did all the errands and shopping today amid insanity, and are planning to hang out at home and avoid all the tourists this weekend. Family has an open invite to come use the pool and BBQ, but the most I am going to provide is pool maintenance and location… and I have about a dozen books on my “read soon” shelf, and a date with a blanket in the shade.

Oh, yeah. And see if I can finish doing my class planning for my three hs’ers. Yikes.

Pity you don’t have someone to help you with type-in. I know when I write things longhand, sometimes I scan them and a friend types them up from the scans, out of the goodness of her heart. I am deeply, deeply grateful for this friend. ^^;

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
