Heard a small bang, then something sizzling and my UPS beeping that it had no power.

One of the power boards under my computer desk had started arching.

I shut down the computer, turned off the power for the UPS then very carefully unplugged the faulty board.

Then I had to go turn back on the circuit breaker.

I could see a lot of yellow flashing within that power board before I unplugged it. It was a bit terrifying.

How to be better at writing or drawing than 95% of the population

Very simple

Do NOT say I can't.

Just do it. At this point, you are already better than the vast majority because they *believe* they can't and so they won't even try.

Do it again. You are improving. Trust me, it may not be obvious at first. But it's true, every time you work on a skill, it does improve.

Keep at it and know that you are a creator.

That's it.

I think that's going to need fixing

So, I am slowly typing into this computer my actual first novel (still).

And there are a few problems that pop up from time to time.
My current problem is that my group bought horses and a mule.
A page later, they walk into a city and somehow don't have to deal with the animals - they didn't put them in a stable - or tie them up or indeed anything.

Sheesh. That's gotta be fixed.
