Okay, five days away over Easter meant I didn’t get any writing done. I have a small tablet, which is alright to take notes with. I’ve started on some things keeping ideas and thoughts sorted, but it’s not ideal to write on and the auto-correct messes things up.
It’s better than writing on a note pad, though. I love writing with pen on paper, preferably fountain pen. But I know anything written down like that won’t ever actually make it onto a computer. Bits and pieces, maybe, odds and ends, but never the whole thing.
If I therefore were to attempt to write a blog entry on a note pad or in a notebook, I’d never ever actually get to post it. Using a pen on paper is a writing exercise, but not the actual thing I want to write.
So, I have some catching up to do and since my day job decided to throw up on me today, I am knackered and won’t get much of a chance to do the catching up. I hope to get there tomorrow.
I’ve got enough together to have a good start, which is something.
Also, in order for this to never happen again, I decided that I needed an Ultra-book. One of those very portable, powerful, long-lasting small notebooks. I’ve entertained the idea before. My normal notebook is too big to lug around, even though it’s not actually huge. I don’t do huge notebooks anyway.
But my tablet is entirely unsuited to do any sort of serious or extensive writing and as I just noted, writing the old-fashioned way just won’t do. So it needs to be a powerful little laptop that will last, is light and portable and can go anywhere I go.
It’s a necessary investment at this point, because I found that even three days without writing is outrageously unacceptable. Six days even more so.
I used to be the master or procrastination and now I find I can’t do it anymore. I need to write. Just like that, I finally started and don’t know how to stop anymore. Don’t want to know how to stop.
I am catching up indeed.
