  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    It looks better than Windows 8.1? Or at least it's somewhat more usable, and 7 was starting to creak a bit. (I bought a new desktop with 7 a couple of years ago, and found that the built in backup...
  • Commented on How to stay in the zone for NaNoWriMo
    The requirement to "win" is to first-draft 50,000 words on a novel (canonically a new project, though they've relaxed the rules on that recently) in the month, not a complete full-length manuscript. So it's only 1667 words/day if you write...
