Writing Like Crazy: My New Jalopy
It finally happened. I got myself a second-hand laptop. Just something that with wifi and can handle a word processor. I got a whole lot more than that with my new jalopy, but so far it does exactly what I need it to do.
In a perfect world, this would greatly improve my writing productivity, but so far that is an unproven assumption. Time will tell. One thing I know for sure is that the guy who owned it previously left a ton of music and games installed on the machine. Just what a writer needs: more distractions.
The keyboard is going to take some getting used to, but at least it`s portable. Sometimes a guy just wants to sit down on the couch at night and type--is that so wrong? Also, I think I'll need to invest in a wireless mouse, because that navigation pad under the space bar is cumbersome to a schmuck like me.
What kind of hiccups do you have when transitioning to another computer.
