Day 22 #MarchoftheWriter

Tools of the trade

Well, I’m an old fashioned girl at heart. So, I’m a paper and pen gal. And I make sure I have a small notepad and pen with me everywhere I go as you don’t know when inspiration will hit!

Years ago, (cause I’ve been at this for while) I used to have a Dictaphone. And no matter where I was, if I was hit by the dialogue of my character, or a new scene or an idea hits me, I whipped that Dictapohne out and pressed record. And yes, I got some strange looks when I did that in public.

OMG, I just found it in the back of my drawer, in my old office. Eeek I’ve got to listen to those tapes now. It’s going to be hilarious.

From a typewriter to a computer, I’ve only used MS Word for all 14 of my books and the others you don’t know about. 😉

I’ve never used a novel -helping-program like Scrivner and the others. All my plotting is done in my head and then pen to paper and then on my laptop.

Just a quick thanks to JD for organising #MarchoftheWriter. I’m having a lot of fun, and hopefully, my readers are learning more about me.

Feel free to comment or asks questions on any of the blogs.

  1. Wouldn’t it still be easier to use an app on your phone that works like a dictaphone than dig around in your purse for your paper and pen? Just seems like it would be to me. You thoughts? Miss you girl! ❤️👍🤔

    1. I know I have that program on my mobile phone, I’ve just never used it. I haven’t used my dictaphone for years, in fact, I couldn’t get it to work. Nope, I’ll stick with paper and pen. 🙂
