Beck,

You are using Morning Pages [the app], or Morning Pages [the practice]?

Good question! I’m using the practice. I’ve used 750words.com before, but have determined handwriting is best for me. My go to paper is Clairefontaine Triomphe (lined) and has been for many years, but just this week I started experimenting with writing them on GoodNotes 5 since their writing stationery template is much improved than v4.

I’ll try the handwritten version or may decide to use my FreeWrite keyboard as it has no distractions and I can do it before the office opens at 8:00 AM.

How have you found the FreeWrite? I’ve been quite disappointed in it, but am open to some sort of shift in expectations that’ll get me using mine.

It is a mixture of good and bad. I have found the software in it to be quirky and less than reliable. It definitely excels at freewriting as it is difficult to do any sort of editing. I liked the tactile keyboards of the mid-1980s (IBM PC), but others would find it distracting in the office, so I put those little rubber o-rings on the keys.

For me, it is the closest thing to distraction-free writing. It is too expensive, but all of the competition is either just in Japan, or discontinued.
