the problem with the alphie

Alphie is wonderful, a way to simply write within letting your internal editor to take over.

One problem with it can be, when you started a book a couple of months back, and then moved over to your Alphie, you'd forgotten you had already begun writing some scenes, so you go about your merry way and write whatever comes to you leading to the fallout of having written some scenes twice. All the way through. Top to bottom. Thus leading to my day yesterday piecing together the best bits, and losing about 1000 words in the process.

But I'm a quarter of the way through, with 2 months until deadline. Feeling pretty good! Especially when I ignore Trish Wylie and Jenna Bayley-Burke's fast mounting word counts!
