All available materials. I write in notebooks, I use the notes function of my phone, I scrawl on receipts and take-out menus and those sleeves they give you to hold your boarding passes, one wall of my kitchen is a chalkboard and one corner of the board is a whole mess of ideas around a particular project. I have tons of notebooks and I do love them but the idea of saying “well, if I don’t have a notebook handy I’m not going to write” is deeply weird to me.
The notes function of my phone probably has the beginnings of 40 or so poems, essays, etc. Thank you, humble notes function, un-hailed champion of the smartphone age.
I have, actually:
One bright day.
