Lights Back...with Kindle!

We're back!

The 48-Hour Dark Experiment was just what I needed to cut the umbilical cord between me and Mother Internet.

While I was offline I:
  • went to a friend's birthday bowling party and had chili fries for dinner
  • had my first acupuncture session
  • incorporated my first beta round notes into my to-query project (Novel #2)
And at 1 a.m. last night when the boyfriend got home from work, he presented me with a fast-breaking/early Valentine's gift:

Displayed is the first book I bought: The Warrior's Path (When Women Were Warriors #1). Fitting, because the first novel I ever attempted started as a short story in college about female warriors.

I had decided that the Kindle wasn't worth it, but he'd already bought one for me, aw.  I'm sure I'll LOVE it once I get on the plane next week without 5 hardcovers.  I'll also be bringing pages from my critique partners, so send 'em on over, ladies!

The first social network site I visited with my Kindle?  Twitter.

How did your Dark Outs go?  And to those who are just starting theirs - you can do it!

  1. I got a Nook for Xmas and I love it! Especially when traveling. So nice not to carry a bunch of books around.

  2. I see how it's going to be. Bribe me into finishing my edits with a Kindle and plane trip!

    It's working. Maybe not all five chapters, but at least the first two (and my chaps aren't short :P).

    And I'm glad you are back! I MISSED you!

  4. Oooh Kindle! Nice.

    My dark out went very well. I finished a quilt and took some naps. More importantly, I kicked my Facebook habit! Yes! Your dark out sounds more productive than mine...
