Short Story #1 Completed

Granted, I started it before November and still have to type it up, but all the words are there.

Oh, that reminds me of another reason why I like to write by hand- you get another chance to edit it as you type.

Actually, it triggers after you put the space after "Do a" so no, google does not correct your typing skills. I'm sorry.

Normally, I write with MS Word. During school, which is when I've been doing most of my writing lately, I write in a notebook. Typing does make things much faster for me, but there is something personal and - dare I say it - beautiful about writing with pen and paper.

That is the most amazing site ever (well, after this one). I think it's the only reason I don't get behind on busy days.
