Dead Paper Rules

I have returned to writing drafts on paper. The laptop is all but useless these days, due to age, so it's dead things now; and I'm writing on my dead things with a dancHoo pen I found a few weeks ago.

I'm a writer. If you believe the rumours, I'm a passionate one. We only use the pens loved by Japanese girls.

nah, you see, way i write makes paper kind of useless. a lot of the time i just vomit up what i have--and it's messy and bad and awful, and i see what works and what doesn't. then i begin rewriting, which is actual writing a first draft, but i will manage about three or four drafts of most paragraphs as i go along, backspacing, altering, and so forth. it doesn't make paper fun.

that said, the paper is proving pretty good at the moment. maybe i'll try it again. maybe it's time for a different way of writing. i don't mind that. i like different ways.
