The old order changes, or at least the old laptop
It finally happened, my eleven year old laptop gave up the ghost. Well, it went squirrely while I was transcribing scribbled text onto a computer file, luckily on a thumb drive, and locked me out of the book I was writing. Worse, all the text I'd just typed was lost. Fortunately I always work with pen and ink on paper in either a clipboard or notebook first, then type it all out. I can't create while looking at a blinking curser but I can scribble for hours. I have a sealed computer that I've been avoiding of late as it is in a room my late mother used all the time until her heart gave out in November. I've been having some emotional issues about using that room ever since. I re-typed all that lost text on the sealed computer and even added a few extra paragraphs that weren't in the scribbles and introduced a character I didn't originally plan on using in that book. I was going to introduce him in book four, not book two of Sapphire's series. The result of all this was an all day attempt to get a new laptop up and running yesterday, hence this update being a day late. I have no use for a laptop I can't write on, especially as I am socially non-conscious media-wise. I can just barely manage the updates on this website and facebook, that's why my other computer is not hooked up to the internet. It is strictly a writing PC, therefore it possesses neither a cable hook-up or an antenna. I feel very secure with that computer. I just hope I can get the hang of using this new laptop, especially as the old one gave out before I was able to post last month's chapter excerpt. I should hopefully have the published books uploaded to the new unit, as well as a word program on which to save an excerpt, by the middle of this month. Considering my lack of computer skills I can't give any firm promise on that, just a bit of hope. Well, fingers crossed, this should start to go well soon. I hope everyone enjoyed last month. Stay safe and Stay healthy everyone.
