Going...through... withdrawals...

My lappy isn't working!

The battery charger is dead, and now I have to share my writing time on the family computer (and let's just say that the boys got a new online game...thus my withdrawals).

I miss you lappy, I miss you so much. *wiping tear from eye*

I'm trying really heard not to pull out my hair, but if you see a patch missing...you know why.

So, while I am waiting. What'cha up to? Querying? Revising? Drafting? Just hanging around?
And be honest, what do you do when you don't have your compy to write on? Write by hand, write on an Alphasmart, or wait (like me, with balding spots on your head)?

Have a great week everyone. I hope to stop by as many blogs this week, but you know...no lappy. *sigh*

what a pain!

you could probably pick up a non genuine charger from an electronics store cheaply enough to make it worth while.

That's horrific! I hope you get something soon to fix the issue. I've mostly been revising my novel. When I don't have a computer, I write by hand and read a lot. It drives me crazy too.

Laptop batteries give me stress. :( Hopefully it gets fixed soon!

I am packing. And working on a first draft in my spare time (which is little).

Good luck wresting the family computer from boys with a new video game. :)

I'm having withdrawals too, but my laptop is (thankfully) working fine. I've just been so dang busy the past week! Getting ready for my in-laws' visit. They're coming from France for three weeks. I can't wait, but the preparations are getting long, haha. Too much housework for me!!

Have a great week, and good luck getting that laptop back online!

Hope you get your pappy back soon!

i know how you feel. Before I got my laptop I had to share. It sucked. As for what I'm doing - all of the above.

:( That happened to me a few years ago. Torture! BTW - I miss you! :'( It's been too long! I hope you get a new lappy or fix the old one soon! xoxo

Sad day! I never let my kids use the computer. It's mine! lol. But seriously, I kick them off all the time ;)

Jolene Perry said...

WOW. Bummer.

my husband has a laptop, we have an iPad, and two desktops, lol.

If something happens to my precious laptop, I have options.

Elana Johnson said...

This is terrible! I understand the pain though. I have a laptop in my garage that needs a new battery. Hope you get yours fixed soon!

Jennifer Shirk said...

Oh, no! I hate sharing. LOL

As you know I'm fastdrafting. Although I can tell I'm definitely slowing down this week. But still writing everyday. I should still have a rough draft done by the weekend. And I mean ROUGH. :-)

Becca said...

Boo. I hate sharing. But I did it for many years until last month and now I will never want to share again. Ever.

Congrats on getting your new cord! Glad the wait wasn't as long as expected.

Sara B. Larson said...

Well, I just saw laura's comment, so I guess you aren't waiting anymore, yay! :)

Shelley Sly said...

Aww I hope you get your laptop working again soon! A few years ago, I had a virus totally consume my laptop, so I had to use my husband's gigantic desktop computer for a little while. It just didn't feel right, ya know? You get used to your laptop!

Jamie Burch said...

I remember when I had to go without my laptop for almost two weeks. My only option was to visit the library. *shudders*

Hope you get it back soon!

I've decided to postpone querying in order to do more revisions. Kinda crazy, but it has to be done!

My laptop battery won't hold a charge either, but if I keep it plugged in all the time it still works. It's a nice bandaid until I can afford a new battery. Maybe that will work?

Just found your blog - new follower :)

So sorry...I had to share my laptop with the family when our desktop crashed. I hated it! Thankfully we all have our own laptops/ipads now. :)

I'm editing and getting ready to query a few pieces. :)
