Brand New Shiny Things

I have a new shiny computer - YAY! My new shiny computer has a calculator and a clock and a little sideshow of pretty pictures on the desktop - YAY! My screen is now wide and I mean WIDE and fabulous and way glam - YAY!

My new computer doesn't like the CD's where my novels are stored - BOO! I may have to type out nine novels from start to finish - Double BOO! My digital camera is not compatible (hence the lack of a picture of my brand new, shiny computer) - SOB!

I think I've been cursed by the ghost of NaNoWriMo for quitting work on Fractured Wings.

Word Meter added to the right to show the progress on my revision of The Maiden Phoenix.

So long as all your corpses become zombies - cool!

A new computer - congrats! That is always a happy thing... well, except when it isn't compatible with stuff you need. That's not so happy. Hmm :/

I can't believe how many books you're working on. That's very impressive! How in the world do you keep all the stories and characters straight? LOL.

Hi Tee - thanks for commenting. The novels were written over a number of years and are going to be redrafted separately... :)

Love your word meter! I love my MAC, btw. I've had it for 6 years and it's still in top shape. Sorry your new puter doesn't like your cd's. Could you copy them in a different format on your old computer or someone else's? Then try loading them...

Thanks for popping into my blog. I'm hoping that soon the synopsis will be done and the job thing settled so I can get back to writing.

Congratulations on your new computer! Sorry it's not compatible. But there's got to be something you can do to transfer the files. Do you happen to know any techno-whizzes who can help you out?
