With another NaNoWriMo under my belt, bringing my total novels to EIGHT (including two completed during a couple of Camp NaNoWriMos in 2014), I decided to reward myself. My laptop keyboard is not ideal for a touch typist like me – it’s too flat – and typing for long periods of time on it actually makes my hands and fingers ache.

But I love my laptop. Solution? An external mechanical keyboard. But this is not just any boring mechanical keyboard. It’s a beautiful white and gold retro keyboard made by Azio (and no, they haven’t paid me to say that!). I’m hoping that using it will inspire me to actually edit and publish my seven unedited and unpublished novels (including this year’s effort) – because it’s sooooo pretty! I can’t wait to try it out!
