The Four Hundred and Forty-first Post: The One Where I Have New Toys and New Hopes!

So, I got a new laptop. This is the inaugural post I am writing on it. It has a weird feel to it. The keys feel very cheap, but springy. The body is light, which is going to feel good to my shoulders now I don’t have to lug my gaming laptop all the time. I just got everything settled in and downloaded. Only writing programs are on this thing: Office, Scrivener and Calibre. This is my new work laptop – thanks to Amazon for getting it to me the same day I ordered it.

I took some time off because I felt like I could use it. I don’t call myself a social work-a-holic. I do take time off from writing, but sometimes ideas just creep up anyways. I dutifully wrote it down and did a little research on it, so I might use it for Camp Nanowrimo this year. I haven’t really touched the keyboard to do any writing since Thursday, which was a half day at work, and I worked through my lunch to get out there that much faster. Friday, I ordered the laptop and I spent my time fretting about it getting here on time and getting it set up. All of that was a breeze, and now I’ve gotten Office in working order, so now I can finally write tomorrow

Ir that’s what I would be saying if I didn’t have this huge writer’s black about what to do next in the novel project. I just introduced a character, so I’m thinking that I should expand on him, but when I sit down to try that I get nothing. Admittedly, he’s a character that is not really fleshed out past his introduction. I think I might go on to something else and come back to it.

Well – I hope that this year will be a good one for you. I’m looking forward to finishing some projects and maybe getting something close to a regular revenue stream out of all this. So long, and Happy New Year’s to you.
