    I'm about to reach 500 words. Hehe it's not a lot but it's the most I've written this week. I'm attempting to write high fantasy so this should be interesting.

    I really haven't read a lot of high fantasy but I think there should be more in YA.

    Decided to take tomorrow off from coursework -- it's a bank holiday.

    ETA: I've just realised I've got to edit my Christmas short story for uni... or sub it as it is, and hope for the best. I dunno what the hell to do.

    Can't be bothered to quote, but Para - my WIP is about a boy who becomes best friends with a mad scientist.

    And I am always happy to fangirl your writing. You come up with ridiculously amazing plots and delightfully cruel ideas!

    I don't think my laptop likes me playing games.

    If it switches itself off while I'm watching TV, I may just leave it for a while.

    Has anyone else's device done something like that when they're doing certain things. I'm thinking it has a mind of its own.

    Hi Ally! I fear my 15k in a week will never rival your 15k a day, but I'll keep trudging on.

    Pretty sure it's overheating. When you first turn it on, it's still cold, so no problem. But it starts to get hotter as you use it longer, and if you play something like a game or a movie, the core gets dangerously hot and the laptop shuts down automatically to protect itself.

    Download and run Core Temp. Look at the temperature of the laptop while you're not running any programs, then run a game or a tv episode and look at the temperature again. If you can get a look at the temperature right before the laptop shuts down, all the better. Report back.

    Mad scientists are awesome! And thank you! I still have an awful lot to learn about writing (sigh) but my crit partner seems to like the YA UF, so hopefully I'm doing something right.

    The program will be a little grey box. The bottom half is subtitled Processor #0: Temperature Readings and beneath that it lists the core processors, so Core #0 and possibly Core #1 depending on how many you have. The temperature reading is directly to the right of the Core #.

    46C - 63C as far as I can see.

    That's with the internet browser, (not online games) iTunes, MSN and Word open. I shall check it with games on later or tomorrow...

    ETA: Playing games does seem to affect it.

    Sherlockettes is going nicely.

    The playlist is basically every song Sophie and Danielle and Veronika (well... not so much Veronika) would have on their iPods and jam to. Or songs I just like in general.

    So, I already have friends shipping SophiexVeronika... which means I can never release the entire thing, without giving them heart attacks.

    That temperature sounds pretty high for a laptop at rest. If it's getting up toward 80C when a game is running, that's definitely not good.

    Way to go, Ely! I'm up to 800 words and trudging along. Just another 1600 words before we hit 60k.

    That's great lisa!

    And thanks Para. This friendly competition is really helping. I just have to keep reminding myself not to look over anything I write and to just keep going.
