Since first being published in 2017, my writing life has picked up speed. I went from writing maybe one story a year to writing several ... and doing a ton of editing and marketing, too. Apparently, this wears a computer out. Who knew?
Needless to say, the computer I purchased back in 2017 was moving much slower than I needed. It froze, it restarted, and it made funny noises when I tried to join zoom meetings. Besides that, several parts had broken off, making it a bit unstable (no need to comment on how the laptop was like the laptop owner).
When I couldn't take it anymore, I looked at my husband and said, "It's time to replace my computer."
He agreed, and I started researching. Since my first computer (a desktop my parents got me for college way back in 2000!), I have had an HP pretty much every single time I ordered a new one. I think I might have had a Dell mixed in, but then returned faithfully to my original love. I don't know why, but they're the brand I go to. So, I figured out what I wanted/needed, picked my color (too bad they didn't have this one in pink, but maybe I can get some fun stickers for the white cover), and ordered.
And waited some more, because apparently there were more shut downs in China which made computer parts hard to come by. But, last week, it finally arrived.
Then, the fun of setting everything up and moving everything over. Did I get it all transferred? Maybe? I really hope so, because I'm not sure where it went otherwise.
And now I get to use this laptop which is so much faster than my other one. And that's what I needed. Because there are more books to write and more blogs to post and more marketing images to create and more zoom meetings to join. Among other things. :-)
How often do you replace your computer? What's your favorite part? What's your least favorite part?
This is a place for me to tell you about what I'm writing, talk about the process or where some of my ideas came from, or even have other authors come in and talk about their books.
