WIP Day - Broken Monitor

Hello Wednesday.  We need to stop meeting like this.

This will be a short update for the week.  Honestly, I don't have a ton to say.  PN is still out in sales land.  ITB is awaiting editing, which starts next week.

Ah!  Next week?  Next week is 2012?  Oh my...

But yes, ITB will finally get its chance at editing come next week.  It has been sitting since the end of August, and I have to say: I am finally getting antsy to get a good look at it.  I have a few ideas that have been tugging at my mind as well, and I am wondering if I would be able to manage editing one book while writing another.  Hmm... we shall see!

My main monitor finally bit the dust as well.  I have a great duel monitor set up, mainly because a very awesome friend gave me the secondary monitor.  How sweet.  Now I am wondering how I ever survived without duel.  It is soooo nice.

Well, my main one has been slowly dying for a few months now.  The kind of dying where I have to hit the power button off and on literally 50 times before it maybe, just maybe stays on.  The other day... it never stayed on.  Why is this a big deal you ask?  Well, if you know me, you know I also do photography.  And edit it.  And my secondary monitor for sure does not have the right coloring and brightness to make pretty photos.  So... with my main monitor dead... all of my photo editing is on hold.


Needless to say I was pretty dang bummed.  Then my hubby, in all of his aweosmeness, told me to go ahead and order a new one. We found an awesome deal, and it should be here today or tomorrow.  I am way excited.  I am hoping to bust out a few more photo sessions before 2012 hits and book editing consumes my life.

RIP old monitor.  You did me well.

That's about it for today.  I am thinking tonight or tomorrow night I may go spend some of my gift card hubby gave me for Christmas... to Powells.  Because you know you can never have enough books. *wink*

How is your week going??

Wait until you get three monitors. That is the sweet spot. One for your twitter, one for your writing and/or photo editing, one to watch YouTube videos on or to watch dvd's on while you work. Yep...the sweet spot.

Oh my... I think that would potentially ruin me. And I would enjoy every moment of it!

I just looked at your follower numbers and they have EXPLODED! wow! I remember when you were doing your race to 100, I think it was. haha.

Sorry about your monitor, but I guess these things happen! Take it easy and have a great NYE! :D

Jenni Merritt said...

I know! Insane huh?? I was just thinking about my Race to 100 the other day... wasn't even a year ago!

I hope you have a GREAT NYE as well!!

I look forward to the day when I have a real desktop and a GOOD monitor - not just my evil laptop!

I'm also wondering how I'll do editing and writing all at the same time - I start re-reading Misfits on Sunday! Or Monday if I'm too tired from Sunday LOL

Jenni Merritt said...

LLLW - I cannot imagine doing all the editing on a laptop. I write on my netbook sometimes... but nothing beats dual screen desktop action!

I most likely won't be starting my read of ITB till Monday either. i can already feel my exhaustion...
