Great Writing ‘Puter for Sale
I’ve long advocated the use of a writing computer, meaning a separate machine dedicated to nothing but writing fiction — so no internet, no games, no business stuff — just Word or Word Pad or some other word-processor.
The theory is (and I’ve proved it for myself) that sitting down at that dedicated writing computer triggers your creative subconscious that it’s time to play and have fun telling stories.
I have a flawless, extremely light 11.5″ HP Stream in practically new condition. Nothing wrong with it, but it’s excess for me. (I use a similar computer, an 11.5″ HP Probook, as my writing ‘puter.)
The details — The computer is pre-loaded with 64-bit Windows 10 Professional OS, has a 56GB SSD (solid state drive) and 4GB of RAM. The processor is an Intel Celeron N3050 rated at 1.6GHz.
The price is only $100, and I’ll pay shipping.
I suspect it will go fast, so if you’re interested, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out to see whether I still have it. If I do, I’ll ask you to send $100 to my PayPal account or to send me a check.

Disclaimer: In this blog, I provide advice on writing fiction. I advocate a technique called Writing Into the Dark. To be crystal clear, WITD is not “the only way” to write, nor will I ever say it is. However, as I am the only writer who advocates WITD both publicly and regularly, I will continue to do so, among myriad other topics.
