So, as many of you know, my computer has problems. ESPECIALLY my Microsoft Word. (Grrrr.) Anyway, today I learned that good things can come from malfunctioning software. In a nut shell, if I want my Word to work properly, I have to open two files from My Documents, my WiP and then a random one, close the random one, and THEN Word works fine. Confusing, I know.
At any rate, today I opened my WiP, and then went to open/close another file so that I could get started. One file name caught my eye. Outline Erik. I vaguely remembered that Erik was a story that I started about three years ago, but never got past page 40 (you know, that old song and dance.) But, apparently, I had made an outline for the story.
Well, imagine my delight as I read and realized that the story TOTALLY ROCKS!! Seriously! I’m quite giddy. Now, I have a full outline for a very cool story, AND I feel like now I have the ability to actually write that story well!
Don’t get me wrong, I’m still all about PAMR, but it’s pretty sweet to know that, once I’m done, I’ll have a brand new idea to work on. So, for once, I don’t hate my lame computer!
