When it comes to writing tools, I’m low-tech, perhaps surprisingly so, considering I work for a software company.
I’ve tried various applications, and mind you, I wouldn’t format anything without Vellum these days.
But … when it comes to actually writing?
I love notebooks and pens, in particular:
- Legal pads
- Composition notebooks
- Sugarcane based, spiral-bound notebooks
- Uni-ball Vision Elite pens in blue/black
Yes, it’s a very specific list, is it not?
I do write in Microsoft Word most of the time, especially when my fingers can’t keep up with my thoughts. But I’ll often write entire flash fiction pieces or start a short story in a notebook instead. Sometimes the story is coming to me in pen speed rather than pixel speed.
So, this week, after peering into February, I started looking at March, along with stories for August and September. Ideally, I’d get all the stories scheduled so I can move onto this other notion I have brewing.
