One Thumb Is All You Need

So, just when I decided that it's time I really ought to get back to using a pen or pencil instead of a keyboard constantly, I find this function on my phone.

Whether it's been available all the time I've had the phone or if it's a new thing, I don't know, but I do know that it's a lot easier and quicker than the memo facility and, whilst there is definitely something to the feel of writing on paper- especially brand new paper and I've got a beautiful new notebook that is crying out to be used -  needs must, as they say and my old age and the conditions it brings with it mean that using one thumb as opposed to a whole hand is a more pleasurable experience.  

I understand that I can write, edit, save and share whether online or not so have visions of me tapping out my next best seller (next ??) while sat on a beach, on top of a mountain, in the woods, on a boat ( not likely) or wherever I happen to be when the muse hits me. Yes, I am expecting it to hit me again sometime very soon. The risk of losing my notes somewhere is lessened and though the risk of losing my phone is always "Category High" my manuscripts will be safe as they will have been sent to some other device in a different location. Magic.

The test of the real benefit of my findings this morning will be if I manage to send this to anywhere else successfully. If you are reading this somewhere other than on my phone then I reckon this is my most useful find this week. And it's only Tuesday, so who knows what I'll be doing by Friday ?
