So, if you’ve been following me on twitter you know that I’m writing a novel which I’m aiming to self-publish via ebook sometime in October. It’s an arduous process that involves a lot of typing. First, I have to write out the 50,000 or so words of the story, and second, I have to go back and constantly read and edit parts that I’ve already written.
I’m using google docs to complete it so that I can take it anywhere I go thanks to T-Mobile and the fact that they turn my phone into a mobile hot spot. So far, I’ve written it at my desk at home, my desk at my office, and my laptop, in various locales. (Including my car as I waited for a friend to be ready.)
One thing I have noticed as I continue to write and rewrite is the pinky on my right had has be hurting lately. It’s a dull ache that never seems to go away when I finish typing. I kept wondering why this was until one day I looked down at my hands as I typed (which I never do) and noticed the position of that poor pinky.
I have no idea why my pinky does that but I’m pretty sure that Mavis Beacon (if she was still around) would be disappointed in me.
