Physically writing things out is soon going to be a lost art. Over the past two months, I’ve made sure to bring a notebook everywhere, writing as much as I possibly could. I first started out with a Sharpie pen—reason being is that I don’t like erasing so that I for sure have the original intentions of my writing on paper. It was only the past few days that I switched back to pencil for the first time in over two years.
Many people lose some of their best ideas, or repeat mistakes because they erase their work. Seriously, I beg of you, don’t erase you mistakes!
Simply cross out the things you don’t want to use. At least you can go back and read them.
I know this may seem impractical to some, but this has worked for me (when it comes to personal and creative writing).
I just bought $20 worth of mechanical pencils and lead today…to some that’s a waste, but for me it’s an investment. I love my Zebra pencils…
