Instead of Next Week, I’ll Tell You Today…

How’s it going? I didn’t expect to be writing about this until sometime next week, but things worked out a bit differently. So this will be a short one.

Let’s get to it.

I woke up today…to a screen staring me in the face from across the room. Then I remembered the monitor came yesterday, and I was finally able to get my new computer set up.

I ordered the tower from Amazon and the monitor from Walmart.

I went with a desktop instead of a laptop because I realized the wi-fi around the places I go during the week isn’t that spectacular and/or I’m too busy shopping or what-have-ya to fully concentrate on doing work when my primary objective is actually something else.

The monitor looks like I could eat a chicken and mashed potatoes dinner off of it–a whole chicken, with room for maybe a piece of cake (for the record, I’ve never tried to eat a whole chicken at one time before).

It’s all refurbished, but I don’t care. Same with the tower.

But this is the most powerful computer I’ve ever had.

I’m just happy things load way quicker (especially Facebook) than they used to with my laptop.

I’m not saying this to brag. I’m genuinely and pleasantly shocked by this turn of events. This type of gear looks like it all belongs to somebody else.

But it doesn’t–it’s part of my world now, and (strangely) belongs to me.

This is why you write fiction or copy (or both), isn’t it? To bring people into your world or into your client’s world. To entertain them and help them live a better life.

Geeky as it sounds, that’s how I think this setup helps me (or is poised to help me). It’ll be way more efficient, too.

Tomorrow is Triple F. Be sure to stop by.

Until next time,
