daily grind

In another day, my ytd wordcount will move from pathetic small numbers into starting-to-be-respectable numbers. If I manage to keep this up until next Friday, as the challenge dictates, I'll...be real surprised. :)

Must practice my DVORAK keyboarding. I've been actively trying to stay away from the computer when I'm not writing, because I'm spending 5-6 hours keyboarding right now to accomplish my 5K, and it is Good For Me to do *anything* else. Consequently, when I am online, I'm chatting a fair bit, and it's harder to practice typing when I'm also trying to hold conversations. I'll have to work it out. (Obviously spending 45 minutes practicing without logging into chat rooms would do it, but let's not be rash, people.)

I had a little thought about getting Spanish lesson CDs and taking a CD player on walks with me. I've been trying to figure out when to study Spanish, but tend to get distracted by, oh, anything, and just forget to do it. But that could conceivably kill two birds with one stone. Then all I have to do is make a habit of walking to the *pool*, right? :) Anyway. :)

ytd wordcount: 18,900
miles to Dunharrow: 67
