There's something immediate and satisfying about putting pen or pencil to paper or watching that metal letter hit the paper on the cylinder when using an old IBM or Brother typewriter. The zen like flow that comes with a computer keyboard has its appeal as well. The way we write helps us enter the state which allows us to be the most productive. It also points to ways in which we may sabotage our productivity and undermine creative opportunities.
Write about how you like to write. Do you have a favorite pen or notebook? Do you prefer to use daylight, candlelight or the humming light of your computer monitor? Do you test three pens and go through 20 CDs before beginning?
