Because it wasn't made clear earlier...

Because I didn't make it clear in a post a few days ago, last Sunday night I started, AND got halfway through a short story while at home and on my desktop computer. This is important because it's the first time I've done any significant1 amount of writing at home on my desktop computer for probably two whole years or longer! YAY!!! *does a happy dance*

In fact, the reason I got the laptop to begin with was *because* I was finding myself unable to write on my home PC for some reason. Getting the laptop allowed me to leave the house and do writing somewhere else, which I really needed at the height of my depression. If you find you can't do something somewhere while depressed, see if doing it somewhere else helps.

1 = as in, more than a paragraph of writing... not counting edits.

I agree with that completely, and did the same thing. Of course, being ME, the laptop is circa 1992, runs Windows 3.1 on a black-and-white screen… but for WRITING, what else do I need?

Probably an advantage there, actually. If it's so out of date, much less distraction potential!

Brooke uses a computer called a Dana to write. It's about the size of an iPad, but most of that space is taken up by the keyboard. The screen at top is big enough for a paragraph of text at a time. No Net AFAIK, simple grey text. And the best part is, it's instant-on, instant-off. She can be in the middle of reading something on it, turn it off, then turn it back on later, and it saves her place.
