During this hiatus period, I was dealing with a fit of creativity when I deep dived into the world of the story I’m writing. It led me to give further respect to this world by buying myself a new mini Mac, the T-800 of the Mac catalogue. No longer am I shackled to the 2009 MacBook that took longer to process tasks than an old codger still working and yet to retire. Now I have the processing power of a Terminator, able to utilise simple things like the Internet and core programs like FinalDraft without fret, cleanly and efficiently. Cradled between my new speakers, this beast of a machine is now the brain of my creativity centre, my man-machine interface, my fun. God speed.
