OUTDOORS

A writer has to get outside, move around, and breathe in fresh air, preferably every day. Sitting on one’s own deck, not so good– wildlife are noisy in Tennessee and disturb concentration. Best to leave the computer or journal inside. Walk-jogging in fresh air regears a writer well. Who wants to carry a computer on a jog? Don’t forget sunglasses for going easy on the eyes.

 

NOTES

Quote

WELCOME, writers, editors, and publishers! Come on in!  WELCOME readers!

A note is a trace, a word, a drawing that in a gentle flash becomes part of the thinking process.  It is a flexible mental move generating space for the possible.

“Notetaking encompasses witnessing, drawing, writing, and a diagrammatic thinking; it is speculative, manifests a preliminary moment, a passage, and acts as a memory aid.”
