That is interesting. I know that eBay bought PayPal to facilitate their POS, but did they buy Square Trade too?

Writeroom on macbook pro, Darkroom in Windows or Pyroom in Linux on the netbook. No distractions, and full use of screen real estate which I find is more of a problem than the keyboard (I have an Asus 1001HA 10.1")

Had a bit of buyers remorse and returned it. I need to do some "smart" things in my life, and not spend money on things like this. Due to a divorce last year I'm filing bankruptcy and am still paying off lawyer. If I return this, I can pay him fully.

So time to put on my big boy pants and do what's right with Xmas money rather than what I want.

Good for you. There will always be another chance. (And don't rule out refurbs at places like Newegg.)

Ah well. I understand, been there, done that. Good to get the bills paid and start the year fresh!

Way to go. There will always be something else to buy. They don't run out of stuff!

Get it behind you and don't let there be nagging reminders.

I have done good work with those 69cent spiral notebooks they sell along with school supplies.

The hard work isn't digitizing a work, it is in laying out the foundations, the characters, the organization.

Good luck.

Thanks.

That was my thought. I was looking for an easy way to just write, portable style....and well, you can't really get more portable than pen and paper can you?

On my last hospital visit they included a small notepad and pen in a little welcome package . It was really a very good idea I thought - or it was once I felt well enough to use them. It's amazing what story ideas come to you while lying awake in a hospital bed.

writers often get too focused on the tech aspects of writing (the computers, the writing organizer programs, the word processors....).

I actually prefer doing my initial writing on paper and it also give you a creative editing step when inputting to computer.

I tried writing on a netbook and the keys are too close together (and I have small hands) for me to touch type. I do better on my tablet with keyboard where I type at just under the speed I do on a PC.

My Asus 1001HA died. That is, it stalls on USB initialisation, a common problem, apparently, and Asus has moved on to bigger and better things and isnt interested in helping out supportwise... I'm assuming a logic board/motherboard issue. What a shame to have to chuck it away. I wont buy another netbook, I'll make do with a 13" mac laptop and my iPad.
