Two Things That Have Nothing To Do With Each Other

I was blog hopping today and found two of the coolest things ever. The first is for writers. It's called Write or Die by Dr Wicked. While I'm not crazy about the name, the program is a trip. I didn't get the sound effects, so hopefully it's nothing too gruesome.... But it basically ends any procrastination we writers can have. You go to the site, and enter how many words you want to type in how many minutes. The blogger I got it from did 500 words in 10 minutes. So I thought, okay, that's a good goal. The program keeps track of your time, and how many words you type, so you just have to type.

I ended up doing 811 words in 10 minutes! That's 81 words per minute. DANG! I knew I could type, but that's RIDICULOUS. Talk about MAD typing skillz! SO if you like to write, check it out.

The second thing is the coolest too. It's a contest of sorts, but it's also all about Paying It Forward. Simply enough, if you are one of the first 3 people to comment on this post, you will receive a small gift via snail-mail from me during the month of November.

All that I ask is that you then do the same, and put this on your blog. What a cool way to share a bunch of happiness in cyberspace! As Joanna would say: Come on, my "InterPeeps!" Let's do this thing!
Leave a comment, and leave your e-mail address so I can get your snail-mail address (unless you know I have it already!)
Let the fun begin!
