Woke up in one of those, "I kind of want to delete everything I've ever produced online and start-over" kind of moods today.

LOVE this post!!! thanks so much. the average person shouldn’t need an 8gb laptop for email, word processing, and web browsing. the more ram available, it seems, the more OS makers just see it as an invitation to include morw bloat

Most of people here in Egypt buy used PCs and laptops..imported from europe and usa... I myself bought a used pc the last year and it works greatly.

Absolutely. HELL YES or no. Closing one door can open others. Time is valuable.

Having some set of ideal circumstances for writing always turned it into a massive timesink that had to compete with my social life and other hobbies. Maybe writing focused at a desk is most productive, but allowing myself to write in bits and pieces standing on the subway, waiting for meetings to start, while eating etc. has allowed it to become a far more integral part of my life, something i'm always doing.

Of course, if writing is your primary job, then it makes sense that it would be ritualized -- just like any other job one has to do every day for multiple hours.

There was a great zen pencils covering this topic, ironically with a Bukowski quote used as the prose/narration. The comic was removed at the request of Bukowski's publisher, but someone else still has the comic up: https://ravenvinnie.wordpress.com/2014/08/13/one-of-my-favorite-comics-charles-bukowski-air-light-time-and-space-by-gavin-zen-pencils-aung/

@nohappy Love that Bukowski quote/poem. @saddleblasters, work certainly changes things but I think the principle of just getting on with it still applies.

Slowly getting round to updating ye olde blogroll. Some more sites to come: https://mikegrindle.com/blogroll/

I liked My One Big Text File very much but I kind of have some issues like as being bilingual or might a Trilingual, I think I should have 2 separated files in that case.

Thanks! That's a fun problem to have. I think go with whatever feels easiest to you.
