anduze2004 How simple it is to sit and write. Here I am in a small cafe in Anduze writing with a pen, not a laptop, where rapid clicks can get annoying to people ready for a quiet morning or where computer quirks can interrupt concentration during a free-write to warm up creative juices. Studies showW that writing with a pen, versus a keyboard, activates a different part of your brain and accelerates healing.

Does the technology of a computer help or hinder your writing? Are you more creative on a keyboard or with a pen? Do you access the depth of emotions with a keyboard or a pen?

Keep the pen moving,
