“You know, it's hard work to write a book. I can't tell you how many times I really get going on an idea, then my quill breaks. Or I spill ink all over my writing tunic.”
~ Ellen DeGeneres
I'm going old school today and writing via pen and paper. In high school, my best friend got me a dip pen set (it was gorgeous). Unfortunately, since I am temporarily relocated, I didn't pack it; in fear that the FAA would put me on their no fly list for carrying a weapon, stabbing myself while unpacking, or other polylemma. I packed one suitcase to bring here. I would have just rather brought another pair of underpants than a possible weapon. ANYWAY, I did manage to acquire a few notebooks (within the last couple months) and a Sharpie pen set in an array of colors.
I am privy to the sarcasm in the quote that I picked today, but I am curious about getting a lucky writing [insert piece of garment here]. I do have my writing buddy, Bartholomoo the stuffed cow. But somehow, I don't find that he's the same as a lucky pair of boxer shorts.
Join me in writing via pen or pencil (or quill or dip pen) today. I'm hoping that this change of pace will help inspire me.
