Hey everyone, how are you?
Yesterday, I got a new laptop, specifically a MacBook Pro, as my old laptop was slowly dying.
I have longed for a Mac for a while and have never been in the position to get one before. But I found I was, so I went for it. My old PC was slowing down a lot and crashing every now and then. That I was doing a lot of stuff on my phone or on my iPad. But yesterday I got my new MacBook and I was on it most day just getting used to it and planning out new pieces of writing.i’m finding it so much simpler to use and it’s one of the reasons why I like Apple products. I have mentioned before that I have dyslexia, and I find that Apple products are simpler to use and it just suits me better. In that Because they are simpler to use my dyslexic brain doesn’t get confused all the time and I can just focus on writing and the projects that I have going on.
Today in this weekend I will be writing for the majority of it. I have a PhD application to get in including an email to a potential supervisor. I want to get these email drafted and ready to send on Monday morning because you don’t send emails to academic stuff over the weekend. I also need to add 1000 words to my proposal. As each university is different in what they want in a proposal and this one has a higher word limit. But I have some good ideas of what I can add in. I also bought a textbook for the area of law that I want to do my PhD in and I will be looking through that to aid my writing. It is also written by the academic that I like like to supervise my work so that is another point in my favour. I normally don’t do the stuff of the weekend as I just like to chill but the deadline is coming up and needs must.
Once I am done with the PhD proposal I will then focus on fiction writing. But the proposal has to come first. But I am looking forward to getting in some fiction writing if not at this weekend, then next week after Wednesday which is the deadline day.I want to finish off the short story and get some more writing down on the novel. I’ve been thinking a lot about the short story in the novel, possibly as a way of distracting myself from the application form. I am very good at procrastinating and I am a last minute person. So I will finish things at the very last hour. I don’t know why if it’s just how I’m wired but I know it can be infuriating for people. But I am looking forward to getting back into fiction writing.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
