A while back a dear friend gave me an extraordinary fountain pen. I rediscovered it recently and have started using it.
I was diagnosed with epilepsy back in the 1980’s. Recently I have been experiencing issues in cars and when I am working on the computer. For some reasons I do not seem to have these problems writings things out by hand. It would appear that I have a better chance of getting things done if I start moving away from the computer, and start writing longhand.
Before anybody asks, The Daily Frail will remain a video workshop series.
It would not be the first time that the old-fashioned way fit me better than anything modern.
Right now the plan is to stock up on some decent journals and start writing. I would like to eventually get a smart journal. That would make it easier getting the written page into the computer. The trouble with smart journals right now is that they all seem to require an Apple or Android phone – something I can’t afford right now.
For the moment I will just start with ink and paper and see where that takes me. I am sure there are roadblocks I have not thought of yet, but a lot of my heroes wrote their best work scratching pens and pencils across paper.
I will keep you all posted on my results.
