Happy Spring Forward Sunday! Need an extra cup of coffee? I really don’t understand the time deal. Daylight is daylight. You can’t really save it. It’s always going to dissolve into night.
My favorite way to write is to sit in a comfy spot with my loyal MacBook Air. My favorite way to edit my work is to use a desk top. I miss things on the smaller screen.
Older eyes and all.
It took lots of “duh” and “d’oh!” moments before I realized I could just buy a monitor and run it off my MacBook. Unfortunately, you need to buy a special connector adaptor so they can all talk to each other. Oh, and a mouse since your laptop will be closed. Oh, yeah, and since the laptop is closed you need your keyboard. And, yeah, they need to be wireless because, well, you know, it’s only a MacBook Air and has just a couple of ports and you need one port (at least) for your DVD attachment so you can watch your exercise videos. (That doesn’t mean you have to follow along with them. You can just watch the people exercise if you wish.) Here’s MackBook Air in editing mode:
Something new: In a couple of weeks or three, I’m going to be starting a Reading/Writing Wednesday. It will be about all-things-books. I’ll have some guest authors to talk about their books, perhaps a guest editor or two. Things for the reader and the writer. That way, this Sunday Morning Coffee Blog will remain pure: tawlk an’ coffee– waking up stuff. Not that I won’t stop talking about writing and sharing what I’m learning if that’s what I’m up to. (Little disclaimer, there.)
Speaking of “d’oh” moments, I just learned about hyperlinks. I’ve been cutting and pasting bits and pieces into my blog without proper linkage. Perhaps that’s why you’d have to go to my blogsite to see the little YouTube videos I’ve been posting?
Busy week this week. I’m wrapping up Champion of Entean for it’s return visit to my editor.
So glad I’ve got that extra hour of daylight to burn.
I leave you with a view of Mt. Rainier from Tacoma. Mr. Al and I were at a home show. That’s an interesting place. They were promoting everything from knives, bathroom fixtures, siding, and beds to smoked salmon and fudge. I don’t get how the salmon and fudge really fit into a “Home Show,” but the samples were nice.
Oh! And look at this!
Shall we try a hyperlink of the swaying palm tree? Perhaps you can click on it from the comfort of your own inbox. If not, it’s back to the drawing board.
One of those learning curve things.
Have a great week, peeps!!
