I learned something useful recently that I’d thought I’d share for those who wish to be writers.
A few weeks ago, during a storm of deadlines and work stress, my usual writing computer died. It’s also a fairly high powered gaming computer, and it does this occasionally and I have to reinstall Windows. The tech support for this particular company seems to regard that as both normal and desirable. What they seem to forget is that it takes an entire day to install Windows.
In frustration, I went and bought a Macbook. I will resist the urge to proselytize, but here’s what I learned:
Keep your gaming computer and your writing computer separate, and you will triple your productivity.
