I’ve been using the iPad as my only computer for the past few months and it’s been great. I thought I’d share how I’m using it to do all my writing, which includes this blog, my Tech Talk blog, and a novel I’ve been working on. I’ll also talk a bit about the process I use to write.
Too Much Tech Talk?
Looking down my home page, I see that my last three posts are just cross-posts to my other site (Rob’s Tech Talk). That doesn’t seem right to me. When I got back into writing a couple months ago, I intended to post here more than I have. That bothers me a bit.Continue reading
What is Art?
When I was young I would have said that paintings and sculptures were art, and that the people who created them were artists. That was it, that was the extent of my definition. It was a child’s simplistic view. I would have also said that I was clearly not an artist because I couldn’t draw or paint, and I certainly couldn’t make sculptures.
How Much Writing is Enough?
What a silly question! Of course the answer is “there is never enough writing!” But I do find myself asking this very question lately…Continue reading
Where Did the Time Go?
It’s been more than a year since I posted here. A year! What happened?
Ebbing and Flowing
I wonder if Ebbing and Flowing best describes my writing consistency. As I look at what I’ve written over the past few months, and then look back over a longer period of time, I definitely see some ebbs and some flows. Each time I start writing again, I have a lot of ideas and a lot of output. In those times, the ideas greatly outnumber the output. I guess that’s a good thing, as I always have a long list of ideas to come back to.Continue reading
It’s Been Quiet Around Here
My last post was almost a month ago! When I started this blog and re-focused my energy on writing, I told myself that I’d write almost every day. I also thought I’d post here frequently. I guess I didn’t take travel and vacation into account.Continue reading
Getting Ready vs Getting Started
About a month ago I started my new blog. I set up the site, picked a theme, posted a welcome message, and wrote down several ideas for upcoming posts. It felt as if I was getting started.
But, as I sit here today, writing this post, it’s clear that I was really just getting ready. More than a month has gone by, with little output from me. Oh, I’ve saved off a few more post ideas and read through some of the notes I took for one of my novels. But, I have not really started writing. Why?Continue reading
A Change of Focus
If you read the about me page, you’ll know that I spent my career in the technology industry. I started as a programmer and ended up in engineering management at a pretty senior level. I’ve always been very passionate about technology.Continue reading
