Crafts, NaNo, and Update Loops

I’m caught up on NaNo – or was before midnight – despite being stuck in a windows update loop. This is where windows fails to configure the updates for whatever reason and then says it is reverting changes for five hours, then says it is shutting down for roughly ten hours, after which you manually restart, only to be given the “windows has failed to configure… Reverting changes” screen again – with the same results. I’ve googled this extensively, and am of the opinion that I’ll let it sit until the weekend when someone who knows what they’re doing can hopefully fix it. In the meantime I had luckily emailed the book I’m writing to my mom, so I downloaded a copy, and can write either on my phone or on someone else’s laptop if they’ll let me. But it means no book cover work until it’s fixed. So, I’ve gotten some crafts done for the craft fair this weekend instead.

I still don’t know what to charge. Prices seem to be all over the place – anywhere from $.75 a card to 7$ a card, in some cases for the same quality. And ornaments… Yeah. It’s the same thing. I don’t want to cheat myself, but I don’t want to charge so much that no one buys. Ahhhhhhh!! This is why I like to do lots of research on things first.
Either way. I’m tired of typing on my phone so I’m outta here. Have a good one!
