My new laptop

Ever since a writer friend of mine popped into class with a cute cherry red laptop, I have been pondering getting one of my own. But, I keep putting it off. I haven't wanted to spend the money on it and I haven't been able to decide if I want a full sized or a mini, a Mac or a PC, or even if I will use it as much as I hope to.

We are getting ready to travel a bit during the next few months, heading out to visit family for a few weeks and then back out again to visit friends. I figured out that the whole key to staying in love with Phoenix is to get away as much as possible during the summer, so I plan to do my part to keep the romance alive. Anyway, I could really use a laptop to keep up with my writing while we are away.

Still, I haven't been able to zero in on one. Not wanting to make a rash and possibly regrettable decision, I finally opted for an old fashioned writing tool instead.

A notebook. Lightweight. Portable. Doesn't need to be charged. Available in almost any color. Fits right in my lap.

I am a genius.

even after the laptop, this is still my best way to 'write down the bones' i'm never without one. and you will use the laptop. you'll find yourself sneaking in ways and changing routines around to be able to use it.

best of luck with the summer!!

do it.

Me too! My spiral notebooks (read "writer's journals") have a place of honor in my office - everything starts right there. And you're right - it's the perfect laptop!
