Is There Such a Thing as an Evil Computer or Is it a Bad Writer?
April 13, 2009
I think that I’ve been busy with typing, OK, small joke there! My computer though has not been as busy as I have. I was using my computer and spent most of my time trying to get it to work. It would not and I didn’t know what to do with it. A laptop that loves me this much is not a good thing. That and publishing a book is not quite what I expected it to be.
Not to worry I have a desktop computer handy. With all my files. Except for yesterday’s work. Not a complete wash, I still have most of my work on paper. At least I find it useful to have a pen and paper handy for such events.
I did notice something which made my day. I had written “chapiter” instead of chapter. Now, this made me ask myself is there such a thing as a bad writer and a bad computer? Possibly there might. This is why I am learning that a first draft is that– first of anything. I have learned that publishing a first draft is a very bad idea and that would set me back a fair bit. This is hard when you want to have your work published….
