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.
