Google and Samsung, a big thank you. You high tech guys really helped out with my writing. My new Kindle Book, Star Trek Sex – my third ebook on Amazon – is now published, ready for purchase and download. Star Trek Sex explores the intelligent, fun and mature themes of sexuality found in Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek. It was the first book I ever wrote on my Samsung Chromebook. I’d compare it to how Steve Austin (Lee Majors) was rebuilt into The Six Million Dollar Man – the Chromebook made me write much better, stronger and faster.
I got a Chromebook last year and instantly fell in love with its ease of use and monstrous power efficiency. Compared to other traditional laptops and notebooks, it’s a battery beast. But there’s much more.
Writing a long form project like a book, article or screenplay is never easy. How efficient or how much better the process becomes and how good the resulting product turns out is influenced by many variables. Good writing is achieved through hard work and diligence – starting and finishing the job.
But like trying to do a job with the wrong tool – using a sledgehammer to assemble a child’s toy or using a butter knife to carve up a turkey – what we use to write can hamper productivity; a desktop PC running clunky – a laptop or notebook charging out – an OS causing apps to crash and burn. Ever lose a file because of a wrong tool? Not fun.
A Chromebook may be the most well designed writing tool to date. Its efficiency lies in a number of factors, but the bottom line is your writing will benefit. The ease of use, flawless and practically impregnable OS, coupled with lightness and supreme portability footprint is revolutionary.
The more efficient a process becomes, the less time it takes to complete and one’s productivity rises. I’ve always been a pretty speedy scribe, but I’ve gotten a good bit speedier writing on a Chromebook. All my files are easily accessed through the cloud – data still on my USB flash drive, external hard drive or downloaded into Chromebook’s internal storage, are also quickly accessible. The keyboard is a pleasure to type on and nicely supports my 95wpm typing speed.
Who wants to be chained to a desk or desktop? Who wants to lug around a heavy laptop or notebook PC? You can’t get much done on an iPad or Android tablet – without a good keyboard anyway. The Chromebook appears a perfect compromise of size and weight, while providing a full size keyboard and sufficient screen space. I curl up on the couch, in a recliner or just about anywhere with it, and I feel more comfortable in typing, so I get more done. Microsoft’s Surface seems a good competitor in the same feature arena, so no wonder we have those guys on Pawn Stars trashing Chromebook. Sorry guys, but I love mine!
Writing Star Trek Sex on my Chromebook satisfied me as a thoroughly pleasant experience I wish to repeat. I could have written my Kindle Book with other tech tools, but my Samsung Chromebook powered by Google definitely made a huge difference in my work output and efficiency.
