I never write anymore. Not that I don’t write here, which I totally don’t and feel surprisingly bad about. But much more that I don’t ever sit down with my beautiful journal and write in there. Sometimes I miss the feel of paper to pen so much it’s astounding.
In my younger days all I ever needed to keep me entertained was a journal and a pen. I would sit for hours writing about my hopes and dreams and observations on the world. Of course, I was stoned WAY more often back then, so that might have helped.
Now the real problem is that it seems so slow. I’m so much faster at typing than I am at writing by hand that it feels pointless. Why not just type it in, dammit?
Because I miss that feeling of pen on paper.
