Putting Pen to Paper
One of my resolutions for 2013 is to be more consistent with my blogging. In her post about finding a balance between life and blogging, Sally Mavin of Queenie and the Dew said that she likes to brainstorm during her commute to and from work.
That got me thinking: I have a four-hour round trip commute each day. The first two hours, on the way to work, I sleep. But on the way home? I can't seem to focus on a book. I usually end up either wasting time by playing on my phone, or a stare out the window and go stir crazy.
Lately, I've had a lot of ideas. Ideas for Hester & Pearl, ideas for my blog. I had started writing these ideas down in my Moleskine pocket notebook. Just last week, I started writing entire drafts for blog posts in a larger notebook. Sure, I could just draft the post in the blogger app on my phone, but there's something about putting pen to paper that I really enjoy.
