1076 words.

Staples sent me a refurbished printer cartridge and it isn't working. This is going to really cramp my routine, though it is going to save paper. :HB

957 words. Next chapter I get to write a wedding!

Ordered the new drum my spoiled brat of a printer threw a tantrum for. $82, should be here tomorrow. I hope that works. I like to print and edit what I wrote the day before to start my session.

304 words last night. It's an uphill battle with aphasia, but I feel that I'm winning.

Never give up, never surrender.

Got the printer working. User error. RTFM. Though it would help if they put all the instructions in each language together.

Anyway - 571 words today. I had more to type in but a Romeo & Juliet assignment led to hysterics and I had to try to be a psychotherapist.  Back on it tomorrow.

Working on the wedding chapter but the sad is happening during the wedding so it is not that much fun to write.

I think my microphone is shot. Attempting to write a bit, and almost every word comes out wrong. I think I might try a clip-on.

775 words. Wrote them Saturday and typed them in just now. Got a terrible night of sleep last night, not sure I'm going to be able to accomplish anything, writing or otherwise. Another lost day, sigh.

Yes, and it's especially good at recognizing Dragon commands. However, it doesn't recognize the name of one of my main characters. Teddy. And that's the first time it recognized his name.

It's a series and Teddy was introduced in the last book. But I've trained Dragon to recognize the name. For some reason, when I said the name at first, it only typed a small letter b. Weird.

A trainable dragon. I would like a purple one please.

Edit - I couldn't write today. I listened to Chapters 3&4 on read aloud which was productive. The last day of school is Tuesday but the kids have no more work. Husband is home on furlough. Figuring out it is going to be really hard to work with everyone home all the time with nothing for them to work on.

I remembered the name of this thread and Realized that I only had to do 50 words a day. I hope that motivated me to sit down and write at least 50 words every day.

Actually did 215 words.

maybe it was Lorri's purple Dragon that inspired me.

Andwho knows, you may end up writing 500 words. At least that's what I'm hoping for.

140 words today.  I started a new fairytale (although I have two other books I'm supposed to be writing). 
The fairytale seems like more fun at the moment.  :smilie_zauber:

Place butt in chair, turn on microphone, and write 127 words.

My Dragon made more mistakes in that simple sentence than it did in the 20 sentences I wrote in the story. Sheesh!

Made my 50 words +27 and I'm feeling like I accomplished something.

Did a little Dragon training but it didn't take. Maybe if I gave my Dragon a name, she'd cooperate a little bit more. What do you think of Sheila?

Sheila means heavenly. I prefer the spelling Sheelagh. More magical.
I typed Shelia first and that means blind.
