Great Expectations

are not always As You Like It, sometimes they are more akin to A Comedy of Errors. When it comes to computers, I often feel like I am falling through a rabbit hole and I need a little Persuasion to get back on track. Today's experience was no exception. I began the day with a new intention; 30 days of keeping one daily habit, mine was to work on my book for 1 hour a day. It will feel like Paradise Found to finally finish a book.

Only, my google-doc-thingy, once opened, would not allow me to edit my book.
It is behaving like Frankenstein, zero cooperation. I've searched North and South for a key or a word that would permit me to unblock the stupid thing and no avail. I suppose it is only a fit Punishment for the Crime of not having attempted to edit this first book for a century or so, or at least not since around 1984.

I had decided that between work, household duties and attempting to do a good job of raising my Little Women and Little Men, I would give myself a little break and not stress about when I called it done. No sense in putting myself on The Trial for being human. I know you will understand, dear reader, as most of you are either Wives and Daughters or Sons and Lovers.

However, I really thought this new idea was a good one. I have heard of forming a new habit in 21 days, I have attempted NaNo (the writing month of November), but this Will mean one hour a day, which is what I normally spend writing/on the computer in the morning. So, I guess this is a form of Confession, that even though my thoughts are On Liberty and freeing myself from writer's block, it seems that my creative efforts have fallen on Hard Times this morning.


Thank you for stopping by. I am always happy to hear from you! Please leave a comment and let me know how you feel about a post or add advice, anecdotes, etc. of your own.
