Short Story Contest & New Laptop

Today, I am doing a 24-hour short story contest offered by Writers Weekly.  I read some Stephen King this morning (Full Dark, No Stars) to get the creative juices flowing and my husband was kind enough to go to Starbucks and get me a White Chocolate Mocha.  Coffee + SK = Inspiration!  I wrote the first draft in about an hour (although it took 2 hours to come up with an idea) and took it through one round of editing.  Now I am taking a break before I go back and edit it again.  Hopefully I won’t have to stay up all night editing, but if I do, it’s only one night.

I also get to write on the new laptop I bought yesterday. The one I was using crashed about four years ago – my hard drive was wiped clean.  My husband put in a new hard drive, but it never worked the same and I had lost so many things.  I was excited to play around with the new one today and explore all the new features, but that will have to wait until tomorrow.
