Tools for writing

Exchange rate
I spent most of today writing, and by that I don't mean 'writing' which is usually shorthand for something worthy and academic. I mean I did a diagram in Powerpoint, loads of emails, a table in Word, made some appointments on my Palm using the stylus and, later on, some notes (with a biro). I've just been annotating some student work (onscreen) and then I looked for more stuff on 'tools for writing' - an ongoing interest - and realised that 300 hundred years ago, maybe less, it was all so complicated, so special, so different.


  1. ooh yes and we think we have it tough when windows crashes!!

  2. Intersting,pal at middle school (doing her MEd!!) asked staff to take a snap survey of writing going on in school over one day. On the appointed day, I photocopied every piece of written work! She is now headteacher at Allerton, I, on the other hand, am very good at photocopying.

  3. Interesting, and I wonder how that writing (and the writing tools) compared or contrasted with mine? Of course, I don't mean to suggest that mine's 'better' or 'more real' merely to suggest the changing character of writing.
