I have a concern about how technology, hip and cool culture, and new trendy ways to process information and ideas distract us from the purity of the stories themselves. Sometimes I think it’s a rabbit hole, a warren of sorts, a web in the negative sense, at the least a distraction from producing something really valuable in itself – namely, the meat of the story. I notice a huge difference, say, when I get on a slow train to nowhere and only have a notebook and pen.
