Writing in Coffee Shops

Writing in Coffee Shops

I’m going to write a coffee shop tourist post today because I haven’t written one of those in a while. This photo was taken in a new Costa location by Portsmouth and Southsea station.

I always handwrite everything in a notebook first. I just really like the motion of writing everything by hand. Clicking away on a keyboard is fun and all but doesn’t compare to thick ink on fresh paper. Continue reading
