The Blue Screen of Death


An over reliance on technology means that invariably a writer will be left hanging when said technology breaks.

I have become so used to the screen that I spent the last several days moping around, unable to work on my latest novel.

My plethora of notebooks is a testament to how I used to write.

Why is it so difficult for me to write without technology now?

Pencils break, but there is always a pencil sharpener.

And another pencil.

Ink pens run out of ink, but I have plenty more in reserve.

Paper never breaks. It can brown or get damaged, but I’ve had these notebooks for a LONG time.

So it is a reminder to me that while technology is a helpful tool, it can also be a handicap.

I put pen to paper.

Lesson learned.
