Books about Autism

It all comes down to whether a baked idea is a better idea. I get a lot of ideas, anywhere, anytime – all the time! I get little satisfaction from writing on a mobile phone. Laptops are better, but they’re too bulky to cart around.

When it comes to writing, I must jot on a notepad to be laptop-ready. My brain works differently during the act of putting pen to paper, which is why my writing, regardless of its form, usually takes shape on a notepad initially.

The pen-to-paper action acts like a primer that starts my imaginative, thinking, or reflective engine. And like many of my hearty evening meals begun in the slow cooker, the pen-to-paper action marinates my thoughts through writing stints that are slower and more measured for having started them on paper. 

The laptop is my best friend at that stage, and I find myself hard-pressed to retire from it.

Whether I view my brain as working like a slow cooker or a vehicle running on all eight cylinders, I love the written word. I love expressing myself through the written word. I even love the word, word.

Being outside of four walls and a desk is another creative prompter for me. For example, though it requires my upkeep, my garden is a place of rest, reflection, and vision. It’s an ideal environment for me to entertain an organic mind. I can make decisions while I’m gardening, so a trusty notepad is always within my reach. For me, a slow-baked idea is undoubtedly a better idea.
