This and That

I was tired last night. Not an excuse, just reporting fact. I didn’t read my post before I pressed publish. That was a big mistake. I think I wrote a better book review in sixth grade. Sometimes I let my stubbornness get the best of me. Last night was such a case.

Today, I played with a couple of my tiny computers. I started out trying to get my C.H.I.P. computer to work. At first, I tried to figure out how to log in through a USB connection with my computer. That didn’t work. Then I tried to hook it up to my television set through the cable that came with it. That didn’t work either. I’m not sure why.

Next, I got out my Orion Omega. It is a cute little computer with built in WiFi. Little is the operant word as it measures an inch by an inch and a half. I successfully got it up and logged in to it. I updated the software on it and played with it using the web browser interface. Then it was supper time.

There’s only two more days until the start of NaNoWriMo. I’m not really ready for it to start but I’m going to dive in anyway. I have some ideas of what is going to happen. I’ve thought out the end that I’m shooting for. I’ll discover how we get from the beginning to the end by the seat of my pants.

When I finish, my new MacBookPro, the one with the sexy touch bar where the function keys used to be, will be here. I’m going to use it to edit the novel that I wrote during NaNoWriMo in 2014. I may actually salvage something out of that effort. I will probably have to do some major rewriting on it.

That’s the way these things go. It will be worth the effort though, whether I get a salable product out of it or not. I’ll get the experience of editing a novel length work. I’ve never done that before. I expect this won’t be the last time. I imagine I’ll turn right around and edit what I write this year when I finish editing the 2014 effort.

Sweet dreams, don’t forget to tell the ones you love that you love them, and most important of all, be kind.
