This time of year...
Computers and keyboards are fine things, but this time of year I like to write by hand, under the sky, close to the ground.
Any piece of paper will do, and a pencil with a point sharp enough for letters, but I prefer using little hardbound sketchbooks ordered on-line from an art-supply dealer in Atlanta. Back in my artist years, I used to draw in these.
Settling down to work, I turn to the first blank page and some mornings I find a story waiting. Other days I have to dig for it. Most days, though there is something there, wanting to be written down, if only a blog post. Like this one.
