Writing in Motion

I’ve learned today that while it is possible to type on my iPad while a passenger in a speeding Infinity, it is not necessarily productive or advisable. It took a few minutes before my desire to hurl finally abated, and I think my husband was disappointed that I would be unavailable to carry on a conversation with him, or at least verbally sympathized while he negotiated rush-hour traffic.

Also, while I appreciate the ability of the iPad’s keyboard to anticipate and correct my typos, it isn’t perfect. To make any sense of what I was trying to write, I had to keep backspacing and correcting the garbage provided by Apple’s brain. Yes, I have a portable keyboard but my lap isn’t big enough to support both the iPad and the keyboard (thankfully).

So to date, my word count for Camp NaNoWriMo is abysmal: 3,267 out of 50,000. At this rate, I will finish in mid-June.

    You’ll get there! 3267 is 3267 better than zero, right?!

    I get motion sick from the Earth spinning.

      Oh, my goodness, and the Earth is always spinning. You must carry a barf bag with you at all times!

        Not only that, we’re orbiting the sun, and our solar system is orbiting the galactic core, and our galaxy is sailing through space! Stop, I want to get off!

        Actually, if the Earth stopped spinning, gravity would probably do a number on us. Checks and balances and all that…

    Ooh, good point. I often forget about gravity until it causes me to land face first on a hiking trail (and I don’t even have to be going downhill for that ;( ).
    I should know this stuff. I watch Star Trek all the time ๐Ÿ™‚
