Me. :( I have trouble starting things, I know, but once I get past the opening chapter or two, things start spewing. It's just getting over that hump. (Even though I know where it's going, have a rough outline of plot, etc.)

Anyone else in the same predicament?

I know where you're coming from; know about the hump. It didn't help me that my hard disk ground to a halt day 2 and took three days to fix. So now, with "new" lightning fast macbook I'm charging up the hump anew. :P

Suck. Computer issues suck mightily. Good that you didn't lose anything, though.

Onward!

May I suggest that Mr K is not "behind", he is "a behind"?

Shut up, will you please Mr. K. Can't you see I'm working?

I'm behind. I'm very behind. Ugh. Still, it's still only the 6th, so there is still plenty of time to catch up, I hope. :D

You can't be behind if you don't start.
