Confessions of a nerd...
In real life I am not an awesome superhero who writes epic sagas about love, loss and adventure; I am a nerd. I know, I know, you're thinking "DUH!". Basically, I work as a support specialist in an IT department which consists of dealing with website, software and various reporting as is necessary to my job. One thing that makes my life easier is the use of dual monitors. Now, if you've never heard of such a phenomena, this is when two monitors are side-by-side with a continuous display (in my case) that allows the user to move fluidly between screens and the use of many different windows open simultaneously without the need to minimize the most frequently used. Some people use many monitors, but so far, two is working pretty well for me. At least it was at work, but my PC at home has been severely lacking in this department for quite some time.
Today, I lucked out and acquired two 17" monitors that were on the verge of being trashed and brought them home for the hubby and myself. After a nerve-wracking trip to Best Buy, we managed to get all of the adapters we needed and came home to one of the quickest dual monitor setups I've ever encountered (thankfully). Recently I upgraded to Windows 10, so that's a bit of a learning curve in and of itself, but I managed. The hubby, in his wonderment, took on the aspect of getting his background pictures to match up perfectly and adjust the heights of the monitors perfectly. Not to mention setting up his WoW to run seamlessly with his new tech. It's been an eventful night!
What makes this a confession is the fact that I was actually giddy about the prospect of finally having a dual monitor setup at home. Yes, I was giddy. Something like this usually isn't exciting for people. In fact, unless they deal with computers on a regular basis, it may even intimidate them. But for me, I was giddy and couldn't wait to get it setup. How's that for feeling like a complete goob?
So, the moral of the story is....if you're going to be a nerd, be proud of it. You never know when the next super awesome tech will come out and completely blow your mind and that is 100% okay.
Live long and prosper!
Is writer's block a thing?
I've heard many writers argue as to whether writer's block exists. Some say it's just the name given to the lack of motivation, others say it's a real thing and frantically search for quick fixes to jump start their muse. I have no problem coming up with new ideas, but when bringing a work to completion, I tend to struggle. Maybe I have been spreading myself too thin or maybe I've just needed to take a break from ALL things until my story begins writing itself again. Whatever the solution, writing a blog about it seemed to make more sense than staring at the screen doing nothing. I'm not quite sure what else there is, so I'll throw in some shameless plugs for the hell of it. I mean, how else are you going to buy my stuff unless I tell you about it? :p
