I like the look of your workroom. No bells and whistles or obnoxious technology which says “Look at me, I’m working so hard and my stuff is so cutting-edge!” Just clean spaces and arrangements that make sense.
I totally get what you’re saying! The quality of your book should be all the stronger because of the technique you use. :-)
Likewise, I feel less connected to what I’m writing when I write on a keyboard – especially on a computer keyboard – than when I write by hand. For me, writing via a computer feels even more impersonal than writing via a typewriter. I think psychological studies have been done re this human-technology disconnect.
