My laptop would not connect to a power source and the batterie was dead. What a strange thing to go through. I honestly did not know why it was doing such a strange thing, but it hindered writing and expression for a couple of days.
I took it in to the Apple store to get it looked at. After about thirty minuets of diagnostics and whirly-boops, I was notified that it just needed a “power reset” of sorts.
What had happened was the power source that I was preferring was too strong, 80W to be exact, and it had over-charged the laptop. I had never heard of such an issue before, but it did make sense. It was also very embarrassing since I had recruited my parents to assist me in this adventure. There was a silver lining, however: the diagnosis was free. Needless to say, I am getting back to writing tomorrow (March fifth) and do not plan to stop until I literally run out of ideas.
What I am focusing in on now is exploring the idea of relative isolation from both my experiences and those recorded. I am going through this journey through the eyes of individuals who do not exist, in a literal way. I am looking forward to writing my first fiction ever. So far, I have four pages and 20,000 words. I seem to be sticking to one tone without trying, thank Glob! It is one of my biggest deterrence from doing a fiction on prior dates: I am too scattered, usually, to stick to one tone of narration. I know this about myself and I have been trying hard to move passed it.
