My problems are solved. What problem? Oh, the one where I take lots of photos scooting around Europe (and my nephew's confirmation in Denmark) and running out of space on the photo card, the one where I have bucket loads of research, but I type faster than I can write long hand, the one where I'd like to sneak in to the story-a-day marathon and the one where sometimes, it's a glorious day and I'd rather be outside on the balcony writing than staring at all my reference texts.
Yes, indeedy, I've taken advantage of the post-Christmas sales and bought myself a notebook for less than $AUS600. And now, I'm a mobile writer.
It's not flash, just functional - it's hdd has a bigger memory than my desktop - and I can download photos to my heart's content. I can also keep up with the blog, once I get the hang of smaller, flat keyboard. All that will take is practice with the notebook at an angle.
And now that I have a shiney new toy, I'm going to play with it...
