a blog about all of the "bologna" in our minds that lead to writing.

Frequent Fissures

with 3 comments

My three most frequently used writing spaces are my laptop, spiral bound college ruled notebooks, and yellow legal pads. These are unique to me because my three best novels were written on these three spaces. They are easy to write with for me. I also like to write with specific pens on the actual paper, pencil and TD Bank pens for the spiral bound notebooks while there is a black gel pen for the yellow legal pad. It might sound silly, but it seems to work best for those specific spaces. As for remediation, obviously the laptop overtakes the notebook and legal pad, but it can also be very distracting, with all the gadgets and the possibility of the internet. However, it is faster to type on the computer than write it all out. A balance of handwriting and typing are best.

  1. I completely agree that computers do offer more distractions for procrastinators to waste time; however, in regards to writing, if the creativity isn’t there the procrastinator will always find something else to do to waste time whether it be behind the keyboard, the television screen or the bar counter.

  2. Sometimes, I will do laundry or wash dishes as an excuse to not write up a paper! And es, I absolutely love TD Bank pens.

  3. Hey I recently discovered something while browsing through the “How-To” page for these blogs. One of the links said “Write a book” and when I looked into it, the page showed me how to twist and turn your novel into blog form. It says in your piece that you apparently wrote three novels and if you haven’t made any attempts to publish them at all, this might be a way to start off.

    The only reason why I might discourage this is because when your work is posted on a public blog, that means anybody can look at it… which in one way, is a good thing because you’ll receive plenty of input towards making the novels better. On the downside, anybody having access to them means anybody can plagiarize it. I remember Professor Courtney hammer-and-nailing plagiarism into our brains a few months back, so now would definitely be the time to consider it.

    Anyway, just an idea.
