on creating.

the following quote has been haunting me all day..

gregory orr, a man who accidentally shot and killed his brother in a hunting accident at the age of 12, revealed he writes on a daily basis.

why? he says..

'it's how i know who i am..'

Wow, where did you find this bit of information sweetie?

it was on one of those fleeting npr segments called, 'this i know.' (i swear, i get 99% of my news from that little dirty walkman radio you gave me!) anyway, this segment features regular people writing about their life changing moments..which usually means i start crying. ;P
but, that quote really got to me..it's about the simplest way of summing up why most creators create.

...i relate to that more than i'd like to admit right now.
today, i had to buy a new pen, because the one i started using on saturday already died on me.

aaaah, so you're old school as far as the writing goes...ink to paper. you could be on the fast track to carpel tunnel at that pace! yipes!

hahaha usually i'm a typing-kinda-gal! i haven't written longhand in forever, i have to admit - my hand's gotten crampy on more than one occasion? but... i didnt have access to a computer, and once you start one way.. you've just got to finish it? plus, i like the fact that the journal i picked up is tiiiny and handy to have EVERYWHERE. (i even was writing in it while i was at the christian concert, waiting for the music to start!)

ooooooo. noice. that's a purdy little book (much like its owner!) i like the way it lays flat (much like its owner...no no...scratch that)

yeh, ti's a good little notebook. it's got some names behind it, but lets face it.. it's small, it lays flat, and it has a band to keep it shut? ideal! i dont much care if hemmingway or whomever has used them in the past!

if i wanted to stick things inside of it, on the backs of pages i've written on, without having to worry about messing up the paper... what would you suggest? me and glue, man.. i dont know,i always seem to get messy...? and.. acid.. ah, free? or something you have to get? so it doesnt eat the paper? help? please? it's not quite collagey ggoodness like what you do, but.. it.. might have that feel a bit.

this is a popular choice among glue-stickage..


UHU...gotta love that name. it's acid free and full of pasty goodness. should do the trick! (and i know you wanna, but DON'T eat it!!!!!)
