Past and Present

Fountain pens and computers, two very different technologies, but I use them both when writing novels. Most of my notes and first drafts are written with the fountain pen. Then, I type the second draft into a computer. Here’s a photo of the equipment at work.

The scene above was my setup at Charlie’s Bar (San Nicolaas, Aruba)┬áthis past Saturday, where I was busy plowing through some early chapters of a new book. For some reason, I get more work done in busy places like Charlie’s than in quiet spots like my office. Not sure why that is, and I don’t care to figure it out. What works is what works. Don’t mess with it.
