Writing Tools Written by C.A. Bennett Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading... 8 thoughts on “Writing Tools” Nice pickup! I have a drawer full of tape recorders and cassettes picked up from thrifts. They’re great. I have a fondness for the higher end tape decks like Marantz PMDs that reporters used to use before digital recorders.. http://munk.org/typecast/2014/03/04/ujtu-parker-pen-marantz-pmd-and-johnny-depp-be-damned-i-should-be-the-next-kolchak/ LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thanks Ted, love the post! Reading it and seeing the pictures made me want to go office supply shopping! 🙂 LikeLike Reply That ‘s a great find! I use a fountain pen in the morning, a mini cassette quite often when driving and out and about, and my typewriter in the evenings.

I do occasionally dictate notes into my phone but will keep them on tape instead from now on, providing I remember to take it with me everywhere. I do occasionally write things down in a journal I keep specifically for book notes. It does help to write things out now and again, doesn’t it 😉 LikeLike Reply Sounds like fun! I personally hate recording my voice, though, and I believe I think better in writing.

You’ll find it will be easier to carry one around as they are considerably smaller than standard cassette tapes. I happen to be particularly fond of the Olympus L200 myself. 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thanks Mitchell! I was thinking of trying to find one to carry in a little pouch on my wallet or purse. If I should find one, I’ll have to write about it 😉 LikeLike Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
