Since It Was One or the Other, I Decided to Do This Instead…

How’s it going? This is a new month…March 2018. I won’t be waxing too poetic about it. After all, I’ve probably blogged about this end of month/beginning of month personal phenomenon at least three times before.

And you’re familiar with the possibilities and memories a new month brings in, and an old one leaves behind, am I right?

Let’s get to it.

I have a set of earbuds that only work halfway now. I was unaware (until I looked my computer over) that the front of the thing splits the headphone jack and mic input…so I’d need one cord with two plugs, one for each…

Or I’d be stuck being able to hear someone or speak to them, but not both.

I found a plug that ended in the two prongs I needed, but my brother told me I should go with over-the-ear phones, telling me that it wouldn’t hurt my ears inside basically (which is what happens to me after a couple hours with the ‘buds in, even though they’re the most comfortable I’ve ever owned).

So I went with that. I realized I could solve two problems–one short-term and one long-term.

In real life, sometimes we don’t get solutions like that–whether it’s writing for a client, writing fiction for ourselves, or what-have-ya. There are times it’s one problem, one solution.

Or one problem, partial solution.

Or even one problem, man-I-have-to-limp-along-until-I-find-a-solution.

(That last one is something that lots of products and services can help take care of, depending on the problem, of course.)

That’s also why I try to grab on to solutions as they come by. I don’t know when something as good will come along that does such a great job addressing an issue I’m dealing with.

Tomorrow is Triple F. Be sure to stop by.

Until next time,
