My netbook and I have had a good four years or so, but we'll just say that it's been through a lot. My dog knocked off the down key ages ago. It's on its third or fourth or fifth battery. It's getting slow.
And yet I am loathe to do the research for a replacement. So many questions and considerations, price ranges and features. And then the setups to get the right software and settings and whatnot. Exhausting.
That's the sort of energy I need to be putting into this planning for this year's National Novel Writing Month project.
At the same time, it would be a big kick in the pants to write my next novel without a personal (and mobile) computer.
So maybe I need to make the time. Before Friday night?
