Do you ever have the trouble to just sit and just write (you know who I’m looking at….Everyone who want to be a writer, including me in here and love to procrastinate. Seriously if you don’t have that problem, (I apologise to you and never hope to ever meet you, just kid ding….or are my…. No, I would love to meet you and shake you for the secret.) in here and love to procrastinate. Seriously if you don’t have that problem, (I apologise to you and never hope to ever meet you, just kidding….or are my…. No, I would love to meet you and shake you for the secret.)
All joke aside, I fall into the trap of procrastination all the time, all we writer do. Don’t event get me started on my fidgety self (wait I already did). Don’t you have those day whenever you sit down to finally write, your mind would drift off, making up an excuse. Needing the bathroom, snake time, dinner time, feed the dog, feed the kid. Just anything to get you away from writing, finally you sit your butt down and tell yourself ‘okay now I am back. Blank Page you can not defeat me.’ down and tell yourself ‘okay now I am back. Blank Page you can not defeat me.’
5 HOURS LATER.
A spring in your step, a snack in your hands and YouTube in your face. (well more like in my face)
Here me still eating snack very slowly watching YouTube, checking Facebook, Twitter, Tumbler, Google and watching more YouTube. What else is there? YouTube, the Internet you are the root of all evil, an ally of procrastination and an enemy to all writer. I should hate you but I still love you, it a love; hate relationship we have. (No Judgement please, it a complicated relationship we have, okay.)
Okay, it a good Part that you got here through the jungle and vine of the internet forest. I work out that it not just because I’m LAZY. when all of you stare at your screen isn’t the blank page daunting. For me, I work better if I physically writing and not just typing away on my computer. The word just flows better, however, crap it is. I am still writing. Pull out the trumpet, I am writing .. HOORAY.
Celebrate to soon there, event if I am writing the little voice inside my head is nagging me. ‘Now you’re going to have to type it all up. That is a lot of work and you are just going to waste your time again. Well, little voice I just prove you wrong. I have found a way to sit down and write and turn my writing into text within seconds.
NOW THE SOLUTION:
there will be a few things that you need. iPhone, iPad, any other device that allows you to put in the apps called ‘Photo Translate’. It original purpose is to translate but what it does is amazing. It takes the image of text turn it digital and valar you got your digital writing. You just need to make sure that your handwriting is clear and not shorthand. The other thing is to use a pen, I think pencil does not show up well on the photo. It will not be a 100% a rewrite but it still beat having to rewrite everything. from 2 hours retype to a 10-minute picture taking. The apps are free but if you want more feature you can pay for it, I think it was £2. I hope this has really help you out, join the mailing list if you want to be notified by email when the next post is up. Also, I always take feedback from people who want to give me advice on what to write next and I would love to hear from you.
