Every day this month I’ll post a Gratefulness or Gratitude prompt. I’d really enjoy hearing your input on this prompt as well in the comments below. Today’s prompt:I’m somehow drawn to challenges. Song challenges, writing challenges, Sims challenges, just about any challenge. While tossing around blog ideas with my partner in crime the idea to do a monthly challenge came up. I was hesitant to move this to the blog but then tossed it up and said ‘why not?’. Here you have it, my first 30 Day Challenge.
Every day this month I’ll post a Gratefulness or Gratitude prompt. I’d really enjoy hearing your input on this prompt as well in the comments below. Today’s prompt:
There’s an obvious answer here and a couple of can’t live without them answers here as well. I could say computer, it’s overly obvious. A way to easily save and share and back up and always have written words and thoughts and ideas. It’s convenient and comes with it’s own spell check that I use about as religiously as my Bible app. Paper is another pretty up front choice as well. I mean there’s not a lot of options to actually physically write on without paper. Dictionary, thesaurus, and even the big book of quotes I remember my Ma having back in the day are good choices as well. And all have greatly served their time and purpose in my world of the written word. I’m so tempted to change my answer to paper now because without it my tool of choice is moot. I’m in love with my clicky pencil. If you don’t call it a clicky pencil I’m not sure we can be actual real life friends. I mean, my RSVP pens are pretty awesome but they lack a very important feature that my clicky pencil gives me. Erasing. Removing errors, mistakes, misspellings and even rants of craziness that occasionally find their way to my paper. They allow a character to change their name a million and one times during the actual writing process. This is apparently a real thing with the characters who tend to visit my head space. Yes I could also do all that with a computer but it’s a little tacky to drag out the computer at the doctor’s office or sitting at the table at a restaurant. And when something comes to mind it has to be jotted down. Or it’s gone. At least in my world. Clicky pencil equally statused with good ole notebook paper make the list of favorite writing tool. That and since I know a friend who thinks it’s weird the way I say clicky pencil I’m just repeating it over and over.
