And Now…An Explanation Why I’ve Been Posting Different Versions Of the Same Post For A Week

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.
