My Precious

My PreciousI’m broke.  But not too broke for a new laptop. 🙂

This isn’t the model of my dreams, but at half the price, beggars can’t be choosers. It was a need, not a want.

My critique partner, some writer friends and I are going on a writing retreat to Bali next year (February 2017).  My old laptop is purple, which I love, but it’s very, very old and the battery doesn’t last more than an hour or so.  Considering it takes about 10 minutes to start up and then another 10 to shutdown, it’s not exactly a good portable choice for going to cafes to write.

So, what’s a broke girl to do?  I changed my accommodation from a nice executive villa with private plunge pool to something a bit more basic.  With the money I saved, I bought a shiny new laptop.  The battery lasts over 8 hours.  It’s still a basic model, but at least that means I won’t be tempted to download any distracting games from my Steam account and I will be forced to focus on my writing.

I’m really looking forward to all the new words I can pump out on this baby.
