RE: Writer's Therapy #3 - What's your process?

in #writing4 years ago (edited)

My writing technique seems to involve filling multiple notebooks & juggling running out of paper and pens. I've resorted to writing on paper grocery bags in the past. Do not recommend for textural reasons. Usually the more inspired I am, the harder it is to find those items & I give up, frustrated. (Bic pens are my nemesis)

My phone is my only writing device & I'm struggling. I miss Scrivener & despite barely getting to use it, I'm definitely guilty of waxing poetic about it in the past.

When I write with a keyboard I seem to go slack jaw & only use one eye. It's super flattering as you can probably imagine, but I'm usually so delighted I got that into the zone that hopefully I'll be alright with the crazy monster face wrinkles I'll get eventually.

Definitely have to find a way that works, it's awesome you were able to. That commute is no joke, I don't know how people handle being jammed so tight without losing their shit!


@largelyuseless, I think we should form a society against Bic pens. I cannot stand them. They never seem to work. I also like writing by hand, but I know I am more efficient at a keyboard. But the learning for me was that the real efficiency is in actually writing something and if all you have is a phone and an elbow-sized chunk of air between someone's left buttock and someone else's armpit (sorry...anatomy is not my subject) then it's best to use it rather than wait until you get home where your comfortable set up is.

The commute is bad, but it's been a lot worse. I used to have to commute an hour on two of the most crowded lines in Tokyo and my office forced us to do it during peak commute time. Was not a happy camper. This 20 minute bus ride is like heaven in comparison.

I'm so glad it's so much shorter!
And yeah, Bic pens make me feel as if I've paid to throw away someone else's garbage.

I'm definitely way better with a keyboard, but mine is sadly in storage. Someday! Hopefully before my paper writing mountain consumes me. :P

Just beware of fires, termites and potential suffocation risk (if the mountain decides to move). ;-)
