Reality Check

I went back and looked at my stats and I must say it was depressing. I’ve had a significant decline in writing since 2011. As a matter of fact this is the first time I’ve even written anything on my blog this year. The last time I did any significant amount of writing was when I was using Scrivener last year in my attempt to put together a book. And when I was writing in my Journal. I wasn’t writing on here, but at least I was writing. Those, however, both stopped. I’m up early this Saturday morning to reflect on my future when it comes to writing. Spring Break has just started, and now with some time off, I’m focused on writing again. Whether it be here on my blog, on Scrivener, or in my Journal, I just want to start writing again.

I have also gone back to listening to my audio books (motivational, self-help, etc.) while driving back and forth to work. I’ve only been doing it for a few days and here I am writing again. I’ve also had a more positive attitude at work and overall. I realize I’ve wasted quite a bit of valuable time, and I’m trying to make a change. I’m determined to make it stick, and part of that is getting up earlier every morning to write on here, my Journal, or in Scrivener. Actually feels good writing this down today, even if it’s just some minor reflections on my present state. It’s a start.

New Laptop

Finally purchased a new laptop. A Macbook Pro. Have not used a Mac before, so this has been a bit of a change for me. I am accustomed to using products by Apple as I do own both an iPhone and an iPad. It is nice to have all of my devices synced. My previous laptop was an HP, which has long been dead. I haven’t owned a laptop for a couple of years now, and have relied on my desktop, and mobile devices.

I must say the retina display is amazing, and I’m enjoying loading up the pics from my camera. Hopefully I will be spending many hours writing on my new laptop.
