So I did it.
I busted my ass all weekend, and wrote sixty-seven pages of a proposal. It seems like a lot, but when you're writing a book with fifty chapters, it's really not.
Anyhooter, it was a long weekend. Went through 2 cases of diet coke, and I ran out of coffee early in to Saturday morning. The sad thing, is that it's still not done. However, now that I have the chapter outline out of the way, the rest is smooth sailing.
At least that's what I Thought.
Sixty-seven pages. Two pages longer than my senior thesis in college, done in about 48 hours (taking into account the amount of time I screwed around on the Internet instead of working).
I finished at 9:14 PM.
And I was thrilled.
Nothing sounds better than printing that bad boy, taking a purple pen to it, editing it and being done with it so I can find someone to buy my book.
I was wrong.
Sixty-two pages into the print job, things are fine.
Page Sixty-Fucking-Two comes along, and I run out of toner. No biggie, I always keep another on hand. Pop the new one in there, click resume...and nothing.
Cancel the job and start a new one for pages sixty-fucking-two to sixty-fucking-seven.
Wash rinse repeat.
I do this a few times and finally, FINALLY something prints.
It's pages sixty-fucking-two to sixty-fucking-seven!
Well, sort of. Now it's only printing roughly every other line.
My eye has been twitching since. Any ideas?
