NaBloPoMo ~ Dear Diary

6 years ago

When you are writing, do you prefer to use a pen or a computer?

Oh this is an easy one. Back in the day when keeping a diary was cool, I had one of those little ones that comes with a tiny lock and key. Yeah, like those locks could keep anyone out. But keep a paper diary I did. For many years. Then as I got older and went back to diary keeping I would keep my thoughts in a paper journal. I even used fancy glittery pens in it because where else could you use a gold, silver or purple glitter pen? Pretty journals, pretty pens. All to keep my pretty thoughts. And, it must be said I am a huge stationary junkie. HUGE. I love a good pen and I love fancy paper products. I've often thought that I'd like to bring back the lost art of letter writing. I still might one of these days...

Then the internets came to be and I discovered the ability to keep an online journal, and I never looked back. If you go back to the beginning of my archives you'll be able to read all of my journaling efforts from the beginning.

And most definitely, I prefer to keep my thoughts via computer because let's be honest, my handwriting sucks. And anyways, I can type faster than I can write, using a computer is faster.

And I like the clickety-clack sound that the keys make. :)
