Writers, Don’t Get Enamored With Technology

There are tons of offers out there that with this software or device you can, help you or make you, write better, successfully, profitably.

Resist.

Resist the new word processor built just for novel writers. The word finder software that will find just the right word for your story. The AI powered editor and all the other gimmicks.

Hemingway did not use a computer. You don’t need the latest, most powerful and expensive computer. Mark Twain was one of the first people to use a typewriter to write a book. He did it to write faster not better. Have you seen his hand writing?

Ansel Adams took world famous pictures with a wooden box. It had a mechanical shutter. No built in light meter. No flash. No computer processing. No batteries.

No can write a book by hand. There is no shame in that. In the end only a writer would want to know how or on what you wrote it.

Just don’t use crayon and a brown paper grocery bag. That’s crossing the line.

Just write. You don’t need another course. You don’t need a new computer. Go borrow a pen from the doctor’s office. I find that the broker’s office has the best pens. Hotels are good too and you can usually get a couple there.

I have written scenes on the back of old envelopes.

You don’t need letter head to write your story on. Or colored paper. You can find paper at the dollar store or even at the Goodwill store. It’s 50 percent off next Wednesday at the Goodwill store here.

Stay Strong, write on.
