So I was just up in "The County" of Maine for about a week.
For those of you that don't know this is Aroostook County. Land of Potatoes. Get to Portland Maine and head about 4 hours North. Then. To get to where I was, head another hour further North. Lots of trees.
And Mosquitoes. CRAZY mosquitoes.
Anyway. The first night I was there was the 3rd of July, and my hometown does this celebration called Midnight Madness where all the local businesses stay open till Midnight and serve free stuff, games in the streets for the kids, bands playing...all sorts of fun stuff! So I went to that. And I didn't get to my parent's house till maybe 11:30pm or so. Long after they'd gone to bed.
Much too late to wake them up to ask them for the password for the Wi-fi. Crap.
Now. For most of you this may not be a problem. But I, thinking I was being all clever! SOOOO clever! Stored what I was working on at the moment on google docs cloud. (I HATE hatehatehate Word...but we'll get into that later) Thinking I could just access it all week and then zip it back into scrivener when I got home.
Nope. Need the wi-fi's to do that. Damn you google doc's!
So that night I just took the night off from writing and read...(poor me.)
Then I got to thinking...I was REALLY dedicated, used my Drive App on my phone. As annoying as it would have been.
Which got me thinking about how much I use my smartphone for my writing craft.
Which made me remember a blog post I read a while ago someone had posted asking what apps people use that pertain to their writing craft.
So I'm curious!
How low or high tech do you go? Are you a notebook and pencil kind of person? Or do you have a laptop/computer that you'd be lost without? Are you constantly scribbling notes and ideas on slips of paper? Or do you have an app on your phone for that? Or are you like me and kinda somewhere in between?
The next day I asked my dad for the wi-fi password. He said, "I gave that to you the last time you were here! You don't remember it!"
"Dad. I haven't been here for over a year. You haven't changed your password since then?" (Stalling cause no I didn't remember it...)
"Of course I have! Let me check..."
Yah...he'd forgotten the password too...
