In a recent Talk of the Town, playwright David Mamet revealed his dedication to Clairefontaine notebooks and longhand composition: I hate the computer¦ I hate their spell-check. I won’t ever do e-mail.
(He does sometimes use a typewriter.)
I’m afraid of only two things, Mamet said, Being lazy and being cowardly. I get up early in the morning and go to work.
No writerly angst for him, thankyouverymuch¦
