Computer Creates Conundrum

I am so frustrated because my computer is almost dead after a Windows update during which my computer froze.  It has been nothing but trouble since then.  I finally realized there was no fix unless I reformat the hard drive and re-install the operating system – which I do not know how to do.

I won’t go into the gory details. Suffice it to say that my computer is now limping along. Trouble is, I have spent so much time trying to fix the darned thing that I haven’t written a single word in over a week! UGH!!! Thank goodness I backed up all my files! I decided to switch to a Mac, so now I have to navigate switching from Windows. Still less trouble than trying to refurbish my current computer.

This has created a conundrum, though, because now that I have ordered a new laptop, I am wondering how to proceed with my writing. Do I continue to write on my computer (in Word, cuz Scrivener won’t open anymore), or do I wait for the new one to arrive? Might it be prudent to write on paper, then transcribe when I get the new one up and running?  Writer’s cramp, here I come! I think I remember someone else who had this issue a while back – saw a post on Twitter.  In any case, I will be writing again tomorrow morning. For now, it’s Giants time! LOL!!
