Long Hand

Gee whiz. I have fallen into the abyss of writing out inspirations in long hand. This can be very troubling. Now, I must find the time to type everything up. Procrastination treadmill.

But, it is not necessarily a bad thing. I find that I rarely type word for word what I have written. I moreso use it as a guide to create the story. It is strange. They become my notes, as if I have just returned from lecture hall, now required to transcribe what I have heard.

A strange presence has come over me. I cannot describe it. I wish to write, and I do, but something is there, not blocking me... I cannot describe it. It is as someone standing in the distance. Are they approaching me? Am I approaching them? LOL It sounds as if I'm on some sort of 'trip' but I am not. Perhaps the novel is about to turn a corner that I cannot see. I am not sure what it is.

Enough of my bizarre ecsoteric ramblings. Off to work!


  1. Oh my goodness! I have started penning out my books again too. That is how I used to do it in the beginning when I fisrt stateted out and I find that it is good because you can add to it and you may not have to edit it so much as well. Another good thing is that you can carry around a notebook and whip it easier that a laptop or pc.

    If soemthing is leading you it is probably God, so I say go with it! I am sure that something great will happen! Yay! :o)

  2. I write everything out long hand first. I consider typing it on the computer as my first round of edits. Anyway, I couldn't be happier that you are feeling led. I agree with GIMO in the comment before mine. Go with it!

  3. It's nice to write things out. Everything is computer now. It takes me back to a simpler time, a remembering of the old days.... Happier times. :O)

  4. Do whatever is flowing at the time. I personally still like to write it out by hand at first. In fact, I still like to send out hand written notes instead of an e-mail!


  5. I write long hand when I am planning and outlining. There is a notebook for every story idea.

    Like you, it becomes my guide when creating the story.

    I love meeting you, and I'm looking forward to sharing in the journey. Happy writing!
