    I'm a writer who needs his laptop!

    I was without mine for a couple weeks while it was getting repaired. No matter how much I tried to adapt and write anyway, production had ground to a halt! I'm working on being productive again. Wish me luck!

    I have the characters,

    the plot, every last twist and turn right here in my mind, but my brain just turns Into goo when I go to write it. I thinks it's mostly because of how the little details so vastly elude me.
