In a thought-provoking (or maybe not so), wired mag has suggested a series of Top Tools for Creative (and Working) Writers.
That’s an interesting compilation of technical and non-technical stuff for the aspiring writer(s).
They are all in there: the must have’s, such as the palmtop, the notebook, the journal, the pen, the digital recorder/note-keeper, the better-writing-software and the must not have’s, such as the heavy laptop, the fancy journal, the creative writing software. Of course, moleskine journals/notebooks have the honor to be in both categories 🙂 (as expected, of course).
The complaint the author of the posting had was that sometimes the aspiring writer loses the perennial forest. We put more emphasis on the writing tools and forget about the art and craft of writing.
