an amazing thing happened this week...

My computer died.

I spent about twelve hours thinking that I'd lost everything, and so, when I discovered that I actually hadn't, it lit quite the fire under my lazy bum. I have spent the last four days WRITING. Can you believe it? Putting fingers-to-keyboard and proving myself, for once? I set a goal for this weekend and everything. Astounding.

I apologize for the scant appearance in Campaign-land. I am really excited about the second challenge, even though I have no earthly clue what I'm going to come up with for it. We shall see. Until then, here are some other things:

1. Tune in next week for a 100 Followers giveaway/contest/blogfest. It will be fun, promise.

2. I did not fully realize that adding the :: :: to rosewood pencil box would change its alphabetization. Oops. As soon as I assemble a legit banner, I should be rejoining the R's. {Hello, R's! Sorry I left you for the punctuation marks.}

3. I will also be jumbling through a pile of awards to pass on. There may be a surprise in there, as well. Not sure yet.

4. Last weekend, we found a copy of Bongo Kongo at my in-laws' house. It will be played tonight.

Okay, friends. That self-imposed deadline won't wait.

See you soon!

{So much for posting on Mondays and Thursdays.}


  1. YAY WRITING! Go Julie! I can't wait to see the results of that four days. :D

    p.s. I owe you an email. :)

  2. I also have NO idea what to write for the Campaign. (Well, I have one teensy idea but it's...weird.)

    I can't wait to hear more about your contest/giveaway/blogfest!

  3. So glad you didn't lose everything in the computer crash. And yay for inspired writing!!

  4. Thank goodness you didn't lose everything! Whew! I would have FREAKED out.

  5. Glad you are getting the writing done. And your story is a great reminder to us all to back up our work!

  6. Nothing like a little kick-start of fear to motivate the writing. I've had those, "OMG, I've lost everything moments" too. Then I signed up for Carbonite. Now when my PC or my Apple turn cranky, I can still sleep.
