CYMB #10

Blessing #10 - Word Processors

So, as I'm writing my articles today, I vaguely noticed how many changes I kept having to make. And at some point, later in the day, I started to think about typewriters and how it used to be, back in the day. Back when so many writers had to use whiteout instead of backspace.

And I realized that I'm really freakin' blessed to have word processors. My writing style tends to be: type it out, erase half of it, rewrite and type up the new, adjust three or four words, stare at it, then move on to the next paragraph. Then three paragraphs later rewrite the first paragraph and move the fourth paragraph up to the lead.

Anyway. It's really nice to have word processors.

Yes. Yes, it is. It's a bit of a struggle to find one that suits the way one's brain actually works, but there's a word processor for everyone's thinking style.
