For Those of Us Who are Easily Distrac...

Squirrel!

Hubbykins actually recommended this word-processing program (if you can call it that) for times that I need to write and can't seem to ignore my e-mail/Twitter/Google Reader. It's called Dark Room, and, yeah, typing words on an otherwise black screen...that's basically it.  You can download it here.

Also, I just want to apologize in advance for my posts' sentence spacing in the foreseeable future.  I'm trying to re-train myself to single space between sentences instead of double spacing as I was taught umpteen years ago.

  1. This cracked me up! I recently had a professional review of a chapter of my manuscript and one of my comments was about the word processor spacing properly and I no longer needed to "double space" after my sentences. My world practically crumbled and I've been spastic ever since.

    PS - I just reread my comment and removed my double spaces. See, I DO learn. Sometimes.

  3. How on earth can you type so fast?!?! I can't push past 60 wpm. Is there a secret you can let me in on, or are you just naturally gifted? (Or am I unnaturally ungifted?)

  6. I am like you! Crazy fast typing in high school, no errors. I'm almost afraid to see what I'd do without seeing the words. I can't lose my mojo.

  7. In ten years we'll all be lamenting because some newly elected grammar god who is responsible for all grammar rules will announce that two specs instead of one are required. *sigh*

    I love that movie by the way.

  8. This change is trying me batty!! I just learned about it like a month ago and my chin hit the floor. WHY!?!? My thumbs double striking the space key is like second nature. I cant stop! Having to hit the backspace key all the time is not cool!
