I’m giving up my beloved paper to do list for an efficient, conservation PDA type. I’ve actually had my PDA for some time and generally use it for list type items but always seemed to come back to the pen and paper. It might be the writer in me (actually I’m sure it is) that keeps me connected with the scratching of parchment for sentimentality’s sake, but I feel that now with this eco-quest, I need to put down the pen and take up my stylus sword.
Wow the drama, but this sort of occasion needs some dramatization. This is a big deal for writers. You just don’t understand. Working completely on the computer doesn’t work. I know, I know, printout are awful but if you’re not an editor, you don’t understand. You miss so much on the screen. It’s like the nuances of the ink and letters on paper hide themselves on screen until they can fully ripen on the page. So that’s why I’m moving to the pda list to cut down on paper as much as I can. However, I feel this may be a work in progress item on the eco-wishlist.
