Buying this laptop was one of the best decisions I made.
I ummed and ahhed over it for a month since I already had a laptop. But when I saw this beautiful, small aqua laptop with the beautiful white keys, I fell in love with it.
It’s me. Blue is my favourite colour and aesthetics means a lot to me, so when I found this laptop that makes me happy, I thought it was perfect for me.
For a month I couldn’t stop thinking about it and the more I thought about it, the more it made sense to get it. As a writer, it was worth the money because every time I looked at it it would inspire me to write and every time I wrote I would enjoy it. The small size also meant I could take it to cafes to write which is something I love to do. I could also take it on the plane because I travel home every year for Christmas.
Still, I felt guilty about spending money on something I didn’t need. When I received a gift of money, I took it as a sign and went for it. I’m so glad I did. I don’t normally splurge, but this splurge was so worth it.
It really does make me want to write and makes me enjoy writing so much. The whole experience matters and having this beautiful writing tool that I love makes writing such a joy.
I call it my writing laptop because it is only for one writing project at a time. One book project.
It’s only small and doesn’t have much memory space but that’s perfect because it means the only files on it are files for a specific book project. That means no distractions. No internet, no other Word documents, just the book to focus on.
My other laptop is for everything else, so this laptop system works really well. I had no idea that the laptop I worked with made such a difference. I had three other laptops before this one, all big, chunky, black things that I just saw as practical machines. This aqua laptop is a work of art.
Now that I know how much the writing tools matter, I’m going to keep investing in laptops I love for writing projects.
