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:
- Digging out one of my notebooks.
- Grabbing a pen and retreating onto the balcony.
- Writing furiously in the notebook.
- 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.
