As promised, I will now tell everyone why I’ve been posting the exact same post from last Sunday all week. I did a lot of different versions. Backwards, lolcat, covered in bacon, binary, l337 speak, pig latin, and jive. However, there was a good reason. See, I was writing an entire short novel by hand in 14 days (203 handwritten pages, estimated word count a little over 50,000 words).
You can’ read about the whole deal over on InDigest, but basically I read a book and it gave me an idea for a novel (you really should check out InDigest for the whole story). I couldn’t stop until I’d written out the whole thing by hand. Now I have to type it up and see what I really have.
Am I tired? Very. Is my arm sore? Very. Though I got used to it more as time went on, I was alternating ibuprofen and Aleve quite a bit for a while there. And soaking my arm in warm water. And whining.
Regardless, that is why I was lazy for a week. I just couldn’t take much more than I was already doing. Now I’m done and I’m still lazy because I’m still frazzled, so I apologize if today’s post still isn’t that interesting.
