Back to the Paper

Since I continue to have a turrible time editing on my computer, and I am iNept editing on my iPad, I am kickin it old school with pen and paper.  Specifically a Uniball Vision .5mm black. I am iNcapable with any other pen. I have a box of them. I wish they would divide and multiply like some alien cluster of cells. Instead, they wander about, hiding in couches, under tables, on my desk. Oh, back to editing.

Why I am able to edit so much better with pen and paper? I printed out the first 3 chapters, doublespaced, TimesNewRoman, blah, blah. You know the drill. Before I went to bed, the first 5 paragraphs looked like they’d been worked on by a drunk cosmetician. Thankfully, I can read “drunk cosmetrician”. 

Here’s to the pen. “Pen > sword” in the same way that “paper > cosmetics”.

  1. I find that I’m the same way. I think seeing it on paper causes me to focus differently than if I’m staring at a computer screen. Nothing on the side with toolbars or internet distractions. Though, I prefer pencil due to having a habit of making changes and then hating them a few minutes later.

      Yeah, I suppose I should go back to my Ticonderoga 1 Ex Soft, but I love my Uniball Visor .5mm. Not that I’m picky or anything. 😀

      • I hear you. I’m on my last mechanical pencil actually, so I need to fix that. The only thing I was really picky about was my stapler (Bring on the Officespace jokes!), which I got in college. Blue and it stood up, which made it look so cool looking thing. Though, I always got pulled aside by airport security if it was in my satchel. They could never figure out what it was by the x-ray outline, so the look on their face whenever they saw it was always priceless. 🙂
