NOVEL WRITING GEEKINESS

5 Comments

I have to admit, I’m a geek.

My husband chipped in for my bigger screen monitor, and I’m waiting for its delivery like a kid waits for Christmas morning.

This thing is huge. Not as decadent as the 24″ and 27″ iMac screens at work, but it’s big. At 21 1/2 inches, I’ll will be able to see the Whole Word Page. I’ll be able to open two files at once, see them both, full size, real deal, OMG.

What a relief. For the last year, I’ve struggled with a 17″ Samsung screen. It works fine,  but my eyes are killing me. Also, believe it or not, I’m sneaking up on the last phase of final revision. Only nine chapters to go. The event horizon is in view, and now it will be real size, sexy and gorgeous.

And, this new monitor has speakers that, according to the reviews, aren’t great. Who cares? I’m sure they are better than the speakers that came with the tower.

But, one draw back. Beautiful screens like this lead to evil time-wasting. The lure of TV episodes has already wormed its way on to my iPod. Imagine how amazing True Blood and Game of Thrones will look on my new screen. (Now you know my guilty pleasure viewing habits.) And, heaven forbid, I could even become a gamer.

Naw.

I have too much writing to do.

  1. Wow! What a big one! :D
    Amazing to think of having two documents open at once. What luxury!
    Great to hear that you’ve only nine chapters to go. Hang on in there.

    Y’know…I have room on my desk…21 inches would fit…and think of the games…so very tempting…;)

  2. I, like Prue, have *suddenly* noticed a 21 inch gap on my desk where I’m now pretty sure I need a new monitor. Think of Alcide & Erik on a big screen. . .mmmm. . . . oh yes, and editing two documents, of course. . . You two may be enabling me, darn! ;-)

    • Georgeous,wonderful,I love the new monitor. Took a bit of getting used to,but now my eye strain is so much better.And,yes,your fav shows are clear,sharp,and deep. For under $170.00,it’s worth every penny. Viewsonic!!

  3. I’m really just commenting here to squeal about the fact that you watch Game of Thrones & True Blood. Great taste!
