So, my laptop has been dead for the past four weeks, and it's what I use for the majority of my writing. The holidays put significant delay on getting it repaired, and after paying for repair/diagnosis, I ordered a new AC adapter- only for it to arrive broken, and find out the DC in is ALSO broken. The point is, these past few weeks I've been seething at being kept from writing and revising all sorts of things, and finding out today that it's going to be an even longer wait is driving me nuts, especially in light of recent coverage and books that let me know I need to revise just about everything I've ever written. So, on the verge of breakdown, figure I'll try to spin a negative into a positive with a post. Anyone want to share some stories of their own setbacks and what they did to get past them and stay motivated?
