I always keep a journal and a separate notebook under my pillow since most of my ideas for writing come in the middle of the night when I cannot sleep. I write prayers and wishes as well the old ways and put them in my prayer book. I wrote books that never seen by other eyes other than mine and it was written all by hand, keep safely away in the closet inside a shoe box. I am planning to re-do them one of these days but the thought of copying hundreds of pages in my computer documents is kind of daunting I must admit. So, yes, I am an old school I guess and I am afraid I will never get rid of the habit. It is part of me.
