wiu?

Earlier this week those keys on my laptop keyboard started skipping. Sometimes for lower case, much more frequently for upper. But it doesn’t affect all the keys in the top row, doesn’t affect any other rows, doesn’t even affect the keys used most for a game. Qerw vs wiu.

this does make writing first person singular a challenge for essays, reader comments, and my fiction. Those things cover much of my time.

‘m running out of fixes: did the air/crumbs, check for keyboard updates, uninstall drivers, so it’s looking to be a hardware issue. replacing it and/or the laptop is not really possible.

Oh where, oh where has my little dog gone?

After last year’s surgery prep, my muse for original fiction went bye-bye. I went back to fanfic, where I could do character studies, or explore alternate possibilities. One fanfic is winding down, and the other is being posted quickly because of the many chapters on hold.

Early today I had an idea to handle a problem, but I was dealing with stinky dogs and then messy me so I had nothign to write it on.

Now all I have is the memory that I had an idea… and that reeks.
