"A #2 pencil and a dream can take you anywhere."
Joyce A. Myers

So pick up those pencils and start writing!

What do you use you write? I often jot my thoughts down with mechanical pencils. I keep a little journal with me for random thoughts, but will also grab any surface I can if something strikes me. For some reason, I love those little pencils. 

After that, I typically type. My handwriting is horrible and after all these years, my fingers can keep up with my ideas when they are typing far better than they can when I am scribbling on the page.

No matter what your method is, just do it. And keep dreaming!


And don't forget to scroll down to Monday's post and do some writing for this week's prompt! 


  1. Great quote, Shari, and Happy Birthday.

    I still like to write long hand, too. I have notebooks full of chapters and short stories covered with cross outs and arrows.

    Before it becomes undecipherable, I head for the keyboard.


  2. If anyone actually had to read my writing--it would be impossible. Thank goodness for computers!


  3. If I had an idea to write more than one page for, I would use a pencil to write in a notebook. After that, if the idea goes far enough, I would type it out. Sometimes, I make changes I would have never thought of writing; It's kind of a spur of the moment type thing. I have Terrible handwriting too. If I wanted to write neat, it would take hours. I sort of adapted the note-jotting sloppy for school, or when I don't feel like writing.
