Pen and Paper are My Friends

Over the last few weeks, various concerns and circumstances have made sitting in front of the laptop to write or plan (or do anything) somewhat tough. A little tougher than usual.

To get around these obstacles, I've had to change my approach. Here's what I've been doing:

  1. Digging out one of my notebooks.
  2. Grabbing a pen and retreating onto the balcony.
  3. Writing furiously in the notebook.
  4. Going back to a computer and typing what's in the notebook or on the pad

By going analog, I've been writing faster and in some ways a bit more fluidly. The ideas are coming out fully-formed The only thing I've had to contend with is my handwriting — bad at the best of times, nigh illegible at times when I'm writing quickly.
