New Family Member

As a long time and dedicated Windows developer and user, it will probably come as a surprise to some of the people who know me to hear that a nice TNT delivery man called today and left the following package for me:


I have decided that like James, I am also going to attempt a change in direction. For me though, I hoping to wean myself off the endless hamster wheel of software development and at long last delve into the equally challenging but for me potentially more rewarding career as a writer. My genre of choice will inevitably be SciFi and will be likely to span the range from near future dystopia to giga-epoch spanning space opera.

For me, the biggest issue is the problem of being overloaded with little projects of which writing is usually only one. In situations like this I would sit at my HP laptop and be almost literally paralysed by the need to make progress on so many tasks that I don't actually do anything at all. The Air will help me as I intend to have that machine as a dedicated creative space.

I will be posting the traditional "unboxing" article and first impressions soon.
