NaNoWriMo Day 3

What The Heck ?
What The Heck?

Day 3 Ok, here comes the first challenge! I was working away nicely this evening – trying to catch up on my word count and telling my inner-editor where to go – when my cat sat on my laptop. She has a place on top of a set of drawers beside me, with a comfy blanket because she likes to be near me when I write. J She`ll walk across the keyboard once in a while vying for attention, which I gladly give. Occasionally, she`ll try to lie over my shoulder with her butt on the keyboard because I`m not giving her my undivided attention. She did this tonight and now my keyboard is switching my question marks to a French É – see, I just typed a question mark! My son told me it`s an alternate function of that special key, but he doesn`t know how to fix it. So I had to continue typing away without question marks until I can ask my IT son-in-law in the morning! Silly kitty. Anyway, now I`m beat, so I`ll pass my 5,000 mark tomorrow (only 746 words to go). Take away from my experience todayÉ (argh!), pet the kitty before I start work then move my laptop to the sun room! See you tomorrow!

PS – When I transferred my blog from Word to WordPress I tried my ? key and – as you can see – it worked! Crazy things computers.

    1. That doesn’t work either, Steph. I’ve gone online and followed all the steps, and my social media person actually walked me through the steps on her computer today, but my keyboard is different. At this point, I may have to buy a new keyboard. I’m in the first week of NaNoWriMo and I can’t type correctly – aaaaaargh! Thanks for trying to help 🙂


  1. Ah, cats. Nothing quite like writing an important document, and suddenly having aælkdfjaæsdfþþþþþþþþþþþþþ show up in the middle of it.
