But I have a family with an unpredictable schedule, which gets me out of the house even when I don't want to be. There are fun things like basketball games, but there are less fun things like dentist appointments that sometimes have me sitting somewhere with time on my hands.
That's when I appreciate technology. I'm writing this post, for example, from the waiting room of a dentist's office on my Kindle Fire 6.
Of course, writers never really stop writing; even if they are not taking pen to paper or fingers to keyboard (or index finger to virtual keyboard), everything reminds us of our current book or song, or suggests a new story altogether.
In this age of tech, though, it's easier than ever to capture and organize those ideas wherever I happen to be.
