A New Gadget

I know that more stuff isn’t the answer. I know that I should spend my money on experiences and not things. Sometimes, though, I need a little inspiration. I was going to drop $500 on the Freewrite distraction-free typewriter. I really liked the idea of being able to escape into writing. I also recently had a birthday, so I had the perfect excuse for the purchase.

I resisted.

But, I still wanted to buy something related to writing. Instead, I spent $70 on a new keyboard with mechanical switches. I had heard good things about typing on this kind of device. After a few sentences of beautiful noisy clicks, I am convinced that I made a good purchase.

Stuff isn’t the answer. It won’t make me a better writer. But, sometimes it is a lot of fun and can act as inspiration to create new experiences.
