Today, when so many things are digital and electronic, I think the printed word becomes more sacred, not obsolete. I don’t agree with the prophets of doom–the book will not be taken over by the likes of Kindle. (I’d still like to try Kindle, though)

My eyes have to constantly adjust to the screen, whether TV, computer, laptop, or palm. I like the convenience–I type fast, so writing on anything with a keyboard is convenient. But my medium of choice for writing will always be paper and pen. There’s something about crossing out words and adding notes in the margins. It excites me.

I wonder what thoughts I’ll pour out today, and which ones I’ll filter, and which ones I’ll primp and upgrade, until I get to that final copy which will look neat and spiffy on my computer screen.
