If there was a title match between the laptop and the desktop who do you think would win?
When I work at home I work from a laptop. Don't get me wrong, it is a velocaraptor...or at least that is what my handy IT guy Eric calls it. It weighs as much as a desk top but has all the convenience of a laptop.
At work I have a desktop that would make Bill Gates jealous. I have dual monitors and my computer has the latest and greatest state of the art stuff in it. Do I know what that is? Heck, no and guess what? I don't have to, that is what I have an IT guy for.
Recently though I am not enjoying working from the laptop as much.
In the beginning I liked the versatility of being able to move through out the house and on to the back patio. It is fun to work outside when the weather is awesome.
Now, not so much. I find myself increasingly frustrated and missing my dual monitors when I am working from home. I don't know how I ever worked without them. I also find that when I work from my office instead of moving all over the house I can concentrate better, especially when I am writing so the portability is becoming less and less important.
The reason I bring this up is because it made me wonder what type of writing situations and challenges do you guys face? Do you have enough lighting in your space? What about the work surface? Also is any of this really important or am I just suddenly fixating on this because the writing is not coming to me right now. I sit there at the ready and try but I am just dry.
You guys all gave me such great advice yesterday and I appreciate it. I wish there was like a twelve step program to get me back on track with the writing right now. I will keep plugging away trying to find that well of inspiration I had a couple of months ago when all I wanted to do was write, write, write.
