Still Sweatin'

IN THE NEWS: According to World Magazine, "A typo discovered in a recent Arkansas law reveals that the Natural State now allows children of any age to marry so long as the parents consent. Lawmakers intended to raise Arkansas' age of marriage consent to 18, and to make make an exception for teen girls who were pregnant. But a misplaced "not" found its way into the law: allowing a "person who is younger than eighteen (18) years of age and who is not pregnant to obtain a marriage license." Lawmakers may ask the governor to call a special session to repeal the law."


SVEN WORD TOTAL: Don't know. I deleted a lot and wrote a lot on paper. I haven't typed into the computer yet and I'm too lazy to count by hand.


I saw this over at inkygirl.com and had to chuckle.

Wish I had a treehouse...

I love Inky Girl! Her cartoons are so cute and every writer can relate to them.

Sigh. I just need to actually write! Man, I'm having a hard time getting into the groove again.

Keep writing by hand, Jennifer. That's how I got my first draft done this summer. When you have a chunk of uninterrupted time, type as much as you can.
