Writers of the 21 st century - hardware for authors 2016 and 2017
I made a set ofcribbles in this earlier article that show Mike, my embroidery character types, who interacts with various computer technology, and from what I am hearing, a whole bunch of authoring gear is more like this: I want Mike to look very agitated on my painting, because it's the early 80s. Many writers still type on desktops, although I am relieved to know that many now have slim LEDs displays, and some have even fitted them on a positive mounting bracket!
More and more writers are also using laptop computers..... who speak as ex-IT consultants, I have to tell you, is very poor in the long run. When you write, you have to contact the guy and you have to keep your mind reasonably upright. You' ll be able to typ much slower because you can see the keypad and monitor at the same go.
My notebook was on a bookshelf with a built-in keypad. This is where my double motto "You will have to study, you will have to search" is particularly apt. However, I can tell you where this is going - I can give you some hints that will be especially useful for writers, especially for those who are still pounding on the keypad of a desk top computer.
And if you are not still linked to this aging desk top, there is a chance that the number of different machines you own has multiplied in recent years......and if you are working on both columns, then you are spending a lot of money on-line - with your advertising, your advertising, your advertising, your network and so on.
To run your own company - which, if you're a novelist, that's what you do - you need to be online whenever you need to, which means you need a mobile phone that's both mobile and high-performance, so you probably have a fairly good one. And, for the moment, you're gonna need one.
You' ve got to study and you' ve got to look, but you can start with the information I've given you. On the way that the artifact faculty go if you are an maker, and most of your display case faculty be tired either oeuvre your product or doing your message, commerce or discipline, I strongly dissuade from deed a machine.
You should not have a desk top or notebook. Your recorder should be fitted with a drum roll: One tray and a Blue tooth keypad. The image qualitiy is better than the monitor on which you read this. You can do anything you can do on your computer on a tray. Display sizes are only a small problem, because the image is important for your vision.
Obviously you want the display at a sound level for your eye, and if you are looking and learning more about tray mounts, you will be able to do this. In the image the keypad is Microsoft's Universal Folding Keyboard. No. There are other types of Blue tooth keypads available. This lucky series can now be placed anywhere with a small collapsible tray rack, or clip onto this tray holder when you are in your work area.
Now that you save all your scripts and memos "in the cloud" (you have to study, you have to search), all your work is available to you anytime, anywhere, and you don't have to be worried about downtime or lost or stolen, because whether you save to iCloud (Apple), Google Drive (Google/Android) or Onedrive (Microsoft) or a third part like Dropbox, they will do all the backups for you.
It was a handheld typing machine that enabled writers to take their work with them wherever they went.
