This could have been the day I started my award-winning, best-selling novel. But no. When I opened my laptop WINDOWS 10 began updating with the dire warning that "this could take a while" and "12% complete." "Your computer will restart several times." I know from sad experience that if you interrupt the update, it will haunt you until you allow it to load. Sighing, I let it go. An hour and a half later or maybe longer, I had made beef-barley soup for lunch and sent emails to my friends. Windows continued to update. I swept the floor and tided at little.
AT LAST- I thought the update was done. It was. But when I went to log on? This is what I saw in the middle of the grey-blue screen.
Then a new screen.
We Have Updated Your PC
Getting Things Ready, Please Don't Turn Off Your PC
And so I waited more. I'm not a patient person and at my age, I only have so many years left. I feel like I don't have time for this - but what is the alternative? I guess I'll live; the update is complete, although I have to confess. I haven't found any earth-shattering, gasp-inducing changes. And my best-selling novel? I fear that may have to wait for another day.
Yes, I'm of a certain age but I'm pretty spry and like to think still smart enough.
