Low tech

It's supposed to be a challenging week ahead as far as weather goes.  Everyone is being warned to stock up on water, non-perishables, batteries, matches and candles.

I've sharpened all of my pencils.

It will be a good opportunity for me to get back to writing by hand on lined paper.  It's always been an effective way for me to focus and connect with the story. No Facebook pokes, Twitter rants, email cartoons or blog connections to distract me.  Just the story and the scratch of lead on paper.  I even have a notebook, the old-fashioned kind not the computer, waiting for me to open it up and begin.

It may be a low tech week ahead. I look forward to it.  Provided all the amenities are taken care of and everyone is safe.

Do you sometimes miss the good old days before computers made life so much easier?


  1. I love using my computer for writing. What I don't love about it are all the distractions by which you can get sidelined. Happy writing!

  2. Hi Susan. I love the sound of the keys as I type. It makes me feel productive which encourages me to write even more. I just need to disable the Internet for the first hour so that I actually write instead of chat with friends or research. I can get lost for hours in research.
