I can't read anything without a pen and paper anymore

And that's not a bad thing. I long ago just sucked it up and came to grips with the fact that I have a terrible memory for anything that isn't the immediate literary problem I'm writing right now. Even when I was a kid, eleven or twelve years old, I'd take notes of everything so that I could remember things that needed remembering that weren't in the next five scenes--which is about the max for what I can hold in my head at a time.

I think its because I have so much less control over the real-world than I do in the writing-world. But I digress.

See, I just started reading Coop: A Year of Poultry, Pigs and Parenting, and before I even for to the actual book--while I was still in the prologue, I started wondering where I'd left my notebook, and it occurred to me that This Is How I Live My Life. Always looking for pen and paper.

Ans you know what? I bet it's not that uncommon for writers to be this way. For that I'm glad.
