IP, IE, FF & Some Great Advice!

Computer is driving me a wee bit insane today. I keep trying to comment on blogs and none of them are taking, then Firefox kicks in asking if I have the right addy. Really, Firefox ticks me off no end sometimes, behaving like an over-protective nanny-goat. I changed from IE to FF because IE had Issues, but my god, FF has plenty of its own!

And I'm not even going to start on about my internet provider, who are driving me nuts. And then after an unsatisfactory exchange of correspondence sent me a survey to fill in to let them know what experience I had when dealing with them *snort* I don't think they really want to know what I think!

Apart from that, book 2 is coming along and although I'm behind in my word count (I wanted to hit 60k this weekend but it's not looking feasible) I'm loving where my characters are taking me.

Finally, if you haven't already do pop over to the amazing Shelley Munro's blog where she's had Brenna Lyons give some fabulous info on the Pros and Cons of Writing for Different Publishers Part One and Part Two Excellent advice!

Raising my glass to you in speedy writing!

Hey Christina
Computers, arggg!!! I had the blue screen scare and just screamed. Lucky it wasn’t damaging. And thanks for the links. Great advice!!
Happy, productive and speedy writing : )

Shelly sure does have execellent advice going on!

Sorry about your computer. Mine has trouble too sometimes.

Great on the story! I love it when characters tell me what to write!

Christina - I've been cursing my laptop this week. I'm trying to do edits and it keeps jamming so you really have my sympathy.

Don't beat yourself up about the wordcount. Sometimes life conspires against us. As long as you're writing.

Thanks for the shoutout. I think Brenna's post is brilliant.

Sorry to hear about your computer problems, Christina. I had them a while ago, remember, and I'm still waiting on my laptop. They said late this week, but no new, prob next week.

I'm going to pop on over to Shelly's blog and see what she has to say. Sounds interesting.

Suz :)

I love my computer and can't imagine living without the Internet(!) but ack it's so awful when things don't work!!! Especially as I'm not at all technically minded and can never figure out what the problem is.

And April, the blue screen of death, omg that's just awful.
