Tonight was the first time in a while since I’ve sat down and started to think of the Donnie and Sam novel. I found myself asking questions about the characters again. What motivates them? Who are they, what do they dream? Questions that may seem silly, but then again, need to be asked. When I was writing a lot last earlier this year, it seemed as though I really knew the characters. I believe I still do, but as I’ve changed, I wonder how they’ve changed, or how my understanding of them changed.
It’s funny. I’ve been putting off writing some because of a computer hate I developed for my old laptop (Toshiba Satellite from 2001). Some of that I’m sure was a lame excuse. However, I recently got a Macbook Pro and writing seems more enjoyable on it. Just the layout on Apple’s word processing software is nicer, the screen goes black so your left with just a white area resembling a piece of paper and your text. Also, tactilely the machine feels better. Something that is fun to use, and enjoyable to use, encourages use, right?
