I love to write and generally I find that my words flow with paper and pen.
Sometimes pencil but mainly pen.
When my words flow, the inspiration keeps coming, the idea keeps growing, the creative juices don’t scratch on the page and all is well.
Rare is the occasion when I find myself typing directly to computer. My notes are only understandable by me, partly due to my writing which when ‘in the flow’ is what I would call ‘artistic’. I wouldn’t win any house points for handwriting, that’s for sure.
There are arrows drawn from here to there with asterisks, triangles, squares – anything that can be married up with ‘go to [star, triangle, square]’.
Parts are sectioned off and numbered so that I know which section goes where. You’d struggle to do that on a computer.
Back in my school days I used a fountain pen with actual ink cartridges and I loved it. There was a real sense of ‘old skool’ about it. I’m tempted to get another for the sake of nostalgia!
Because there’s no doubt that if you use a good quality pen, the whole process is going to feel better. It’s a no-brainer!
What about you? What’s YOUR writing tool?
