No Wasted Ink Writer’s Links

writers-linksThere were a few rather unusual articles this week. The one about not having a smartphone hit home to me. I own a smartphone, but I go days without using it, much to the chagrin of my husband! I hope you enjoy this latest batch of writer’s links, here on No Wasted Ink.

  1. My smartphone is smarter than I am… I have one and just use it as a glorified alarm clock, notepad and watch. Oh and occasionally a phone. Sad isn’t it? 😉

    1. I was completely content to use the phone as a phone and to text…I did not feel I needed much else…for many years. It has only been this past year that I’ve learned to add a few more items to my “bag of tricks”. I now have a “pane” with my writing assist apps. Stopwatch, pomodoro timer, a few writing prompt generators. I am using them more often than I used to. I read my kindle on my phone now and use it to look at Facebook or Twitter when I’m away from my desk. However, I am not as obsessed with my phone as some of my younger friends. I feel that there is value in taking in the real world around us and actually speaking to people. I know. I know. “the horror!”. 🙂 I think that is why the phone article called to me. 🙂

      1. I’m great with my iPad, but my smart phone is Android, still umbillically attached to a Google log in and drives me bonkers with wanting updates – so I pared down to the basics. I certainly couldn’t get obsessed with it either. 🙂
