Pen To Paper

This was written on February 10, 2014

For the past 14 months this blog has taken place entirely online.  Not that that's a bad thing, but I should have known better.

See, I'm a pen and paper kind of girl.  I think other than general hygiene, eating, and music, writing is the only other thing I do every day.  I keep a journal and I write in it every night.  Not type and save but write and close it up.  I never type lyrics first  - I write them.  I feel weird typing them, like I lose my connection to them,

Why did I think this would be any different?  It's no different.  And writing then typing up the entries won't take me any longer than just typing.  You have no idea how many hours I've wasted staring at my laptop trying to will the words out of me.  Meanwhile, this has taken me 15 minutes at the most to write.

I lost the thread for a second there.  Thanks to a post on Medium, I think I've got it back.
