I’ve been without a computer for a week plus, as my laptop cord died last week and I’ve been waiting on the replacement. It came today, and let me tell you, I’ve never been so happy to touch a keyboard in my life. Recording pages of creative inspiration on a tablet took way too much thumb dexterity. Thankfully, it has now been fully transferred back to my computer to be expanded using more than two fingers, and my thumbs have been relegated to space bar duty.
While my computer was out of commission, I had a guest post over at Meet Your Main Character about my days working in the Fire Swamps. Or, well, something like that. Check it out!
If I haven’t said yet, thank you so much for your guest post! It was a great way to start out Meet Your Main Character!
Thanks, Julie! I loved writing it, and I’m excited to see more posts on Meet Your Main Character. Such a great idea for a blog!
I have had the moments of a week without a laptop. Both for a cord frying and a week without antivirus. (amazing how paranoid you can get without antivirus these days) I try to make a habit of writing long hand just for those laptop free moments, but the transferring. Oh the transferring. It’s exhausting.
Seriously! I used to write longhand all the time, but I just couldn’t handle the transferring. Plus I’m such a slow handwriter that I usually give up and head back to typing just to get the ideas out faster.
I know what you mean. Half the time too, because my cursive is messy, I can’t figure out what I wrote and I make random notes in the margins and wonder what I was talking about. Typing is so much faster and the ideas actually get a chance to escape and get on the page.
I seriously cannot tell you how glad I am you’re back on your computer. For selfish reasons, of course. 🙂
Haha, selfish reasons or not, I’m glad I was missed. 🙂
