I recently read KJ Chapman’s post Getting back to Pen and paper (link provided) and it made me think about a promise to myself last year and a good reason to start filling the hoards of notebooks and pens I have collected over the years.
Thanks to the aforementioned post, I stuffed a few notebooks in my satchel, with enough pens to keep a school supplied for a year and then took it on my travels on the off chance I was inspired.
Last year I wrote a post around that I used phones and laptops as my way of writing and that I was going to strive to write more on paper. Well I had forgotten about that until recently. The electronic devices assist so easily with spellings, grammar etc that it has made me lazy.
So I will now start to indulge my love of short stories and plan to write as many as I can in short hand and will ignore the devices that assist until I really need it. So I thank KJ Chapman for this boost and motivation.
