#SoCS – Why bother?


I spend so much time reading, editing, and (occasionally) writing fiction these days, I sometimes find myself narrating my movements around my house. Usually only in my head … usually. So I have to ask myself, why bother with ink? I do suppose it helps convey my narration to other people … but seriously, do you need to know I need to buy more toilet paper? My narration is incredibly interesting, as you can see.

Speaking of ink, I’ve recently discovered the joy of gel pens. Particularly Papermate InkJoy gel pens. They’re fantastic to write with. They make me want to write … well, pretty much anything. Shopping lists, permission slips to send my son off on field trips, notes about other people’s books … Hey! I should write a book of my own! Yeah, I should get on that.

I’m sitting here looking at my inky black cat. Why in heaven do we think of black when the word “inky” comes along? Ink comes in so many different colours now. We’re not living in an age where we have to use a feather to write with. And a pot of ink … can you imagine? Having to do that? Our computer screens would be a mess!!


On that note, I think it’s time to call it a day.

It’s a day!

  2. I have some of those inkjoy pens too, and they are lovely to write with. 🙂


  3. Ha ha – this was good SoC, Linda.

    I’m the guy who had to approve the purchase of office supplies (long story). Someone asked if we could order gel pens because “they’re so much fun to write with.” How could I refuse 🙂

  5. For writing, I think, that our computers are a huge help, Linda 🙂

  6. It took me a long time to realise other people did that – and they thought it normal, while I called it ‘story preparation’. Funny. It’s my day, too. Day.
