30 Days of Writing: Day Six

The Twirl and Swirl of Letters

Where are you most comfortable writing? At what time of day? Computer or good ol’ pen and paper?

I’ve got that wonderful ability that I can write anywhere at any time of day. I like writing in the afternoon to night best. I find I come up with my best turns of phrase later in the day, but if I get the urge to write at 4 am, I will.

I write wherever I can. On a bus. On a boat. In a car. Sitting in a museum. Lying in bed. In the library. At my desk.

I can write on the computer, but I prefer using pen and paper. I love journals–I got several lovely ones during my sojourn in Florence. I always use the same pen. I’ve written with this type for years…going on three, I think. I’ve only had one explode on me, and that was earlier this week. That’s a pretty good track record.

Writing on computers makes me think of writing papers for school. I don’t mind it, but I find my brain works best when I’m physically forming the letters, not typing. Trouble is, I type faster than I hand write…typing is more at the speed of my brain.
