Dan Metcalf, author of the Lottie Lipton Adventures series, is today’s contributor to An Awfully Big Blog Adventure.
He sings the Song of the Notebook, “the bedrock of the writing profession”:
Digital pretenders try to usurp the throne of the mighty notebook; the elephantine Evernote – the social Pinterest – the humble blog. None can take the place of the battered book in my pocket, waiting to be folded, felt, fondled, to be torn, scribbled on and abused. The tactility of the notebook its USP. An individual feel which can not be replaced.
