Mind you . . . it's not an internet connection issue because Twitter and Thunderbird are running perfectly fine.
I've run my A/V, I've run my anti-spy ware, I've checked my firewall. I'm pretty darn sure there's nothing on my computer that's not supposed to be there.
Well, I do still have Vista . . . and I'm leaning more and more toward believing that's the issue. It wouldn't surprise me to find out that Microbroke has done something to muck with Firefox, but that might just be my rampant anti-Microsoft persona showing through.
So, that's why I didn't post anything last night.
Which was too bad. Because I was having some very interesting chats on Twitter. I was reminiscing with someone about performing in jazz bands years ago and discussing the joys of running "TCAE Power and Light" during Desert Shield/Storm with another person (I'll tell that story another time.)
However, with all the computer issues, at least WordPerfect was running like it should. I added 1230 words to Steel on Target last night and I hope to finish up Chapter 14 tonight. I had been cranking on a scene Monday night, but when I opened up the chapter today, I had one of those momentary flashes of "what the hell". It's still a good scene, but it was in the wrong place. It needs to happen in about six chapters, not now. So, I carefully extracted it and moved it to a separate file to insert later. I let my muse get ahead of herself because I'm looking forward to that whole scene, but the middle of the book wasn't right. I haven't built up to it quite enough yet.
O.K., the snow's shoveled. The daughter-unit is off to school and I need to get myself to work here. Talk to you all later.
