It is a truth universally acknowledged that I am a little bit intimidated by my computer. What if I push the wrong button? What if I accidentally do something that will cause permanent damage? These are real worries to me. They cause stress and anxiety. Odd? I don’t think I’m alone in this.
I have always been a bit of a risk taker, though I’m much more cautious in my old age. Bungee jumping, hang gliding, hot air ballooning, and scuba diving were part of my youth. Yet, I just bought a new laptop with a touch screen and I am TERRIFIED of my Mom slapping my hands if she saw the fingerprints. Go figure!
So, I become a writer. Who types! On a computer! What foolishness is this? Since I love what I do, I think I need to become friends with this machine. We shall see!
