Lots of people working from home, lots of people downloading/streaming music, videos, stuff.
All I want to do is write a post, and I’ve started so many times. So many times. But then, the light flickers, the connection is lost, and it’s all gone. Not saved.
The lesson for me is to write it before I post it. Write it in another package. Offline.
That’s not how I do posts.
I plan and write stories offline. Online is a bit of fun, a chance to be off-the-cuff, to not plan. What’s that called?
If only the internet, the connection through the all-powerful, all-good NBN – a bit facetious of me, perhaps, but I’m so sick of being cut off the internet 50-60 times every three minutes.
And not only does it lose the internet connection – the landline, too! Yep. They’re on the same wave. Conjoined. Can’t even talk to people when the internet’s down.
If only I had someone to grab by the scruff of the neck to show them how frustrating their ‘answer’ to ‘everyone having access’ is.
Eff it. I may not post for a while, but it’s not because I don’t want to. I’ll be working on an angry letter to the head of the NBN, and when it’s done, I’ll take it out the back and do a ritual burn (it’s Autumn, but not sure if we’re allowed to burn … maybe I’ll be a bit sneaky and put it in next door’s fire-pit).
Stay safe. Hope you have a good connection.
