Pen and paper

If you love to write then surely there is nothing quite like putting pen to paper, preferably a fountain pen.

I don’t think I’d ever not love it. But times are moving, technology constantly evolves and I find myself curious. I’m a geek, which certainly extents to technology.

Thus I am finding myself writing this on a brand new Samsung Galaxy Note 8. I had a small tablet before, still do actually. When I decided to get it I had hoped it might do what the Note now, in fact, does: help me write on the go.

But my old tablet did not have a stylus and was not specifically built with note taking in mind. Clearly the Note is.

The first Note that came out was more of a large phone with this function. Too small for what I needed and too big as a phone.

The first Note tablet was a 10. l”, which is too big for me.

Now this. I would say it was love at first sight. I was right and couldn’t be happier.

Writing this I am using the handwriting recognition feature, which is awesome. It doesn’t get everything right, but that is mostly owed due to my fast writing. It get’s it right 90 % of the time and that exceeds my expectations.

Having decided on this excellent little tablet, I now needed the perfect app to write. I downloaded a few different ones I found in the play store and tested them quickly.

This and my last blog were written using JotterPad X. It’s brilliant. I can open a new document in different formats ( novel, essay, poem, script, etc.), write, save, edit and then share via any app that is compatible, handily including the WordPress app I also downloaded.

It works like a dream, provided you have good internet.

I won’t always write or post like this, but it’s good to know I can and actually quite awesome.

I am many things, most of them I am 100%, some of them 150%, none of them just half. I write, I read, I dream, I travel. I question. And I'm always looking for answers. No dream is impossible.
