The writing process starts with that wonderful idea; ideas can and do come from anywhere-almost magically.   Since I find sitting at a computer composing draining all my writing is done in long hand.  It’s much more compelling to sit down with 15 pages of long hand cursive and type away.  I’d rather look at a blank page of paper than stare at a blank computer screen.  I never want to say I was in a place where I couldn’t write or I didn’t have the luxury of a computer to write; all I need is pen, paper, inspiration and there for the grace go I.  There’s something beautiful about holding a pen in your hand and writing.  LA Carlson
