This post describes the process I'm using to create this blog.
I like writing, words, their meanings, sentences and, especially, reading. I try to write every day and, to keep things interesting, I pay attention to the process. This includes reading about how other writers do it and experimenting with equipment that I find appealing.
The process and the equipment create a context. Context alters perception and the medium is (or affects) the message.
- Mac Book Pro (or Thinkpad x220 and earlier)
- Big monitor
- External mechanical keyboard
- (n)Vim 
Typing on computers is secondary to handwriting but essential to publishing. Touch-typing is essential.
- Pilot Capless  and a Kaweco Lilliput  fountain pens.
- Rhodia dot notepads (A5, A5, A6) .
- Plain A4 envelopes.
Writing by hand is a context/medium that underpins the whole process.
I fill up notebooks with thoughts. They go on a shelf and once a year come back down to be read and then I am bored because they are repetitive fragments that don't really go anywhere.
To change this, I needed a writing and editorial process.
Reading about other writers' processes lead me to a few ideas that appealed. These are the inspiration:
[… when a] draft is finished, I put the manuscript away for a while, a week, a month, sometimes longer. When I take it out again, I read it as coldly as possible, then read it aloud to a friend or two, and decide what changes I want to make and whether or not I want to publish it.
Truman Capote 
The pattern of the thing precedes the thing. I fill in the gaps of the crossword at any spot I happen to choose. These bits I write on index cards until the novel is done. My schedule is flexible, but I am rather particular about my instruments: lined Bristol cards and well sharpened, not too hard, pencils capped with erasers.
Vladimir Nabokov  
In his book How Shall I Tell the Dog, Miles Kington references box-files in which he'd placed various notes and beginnings under various subject headings. He also mentions that whenever he dipped in and saw a promising section heading it would turn out to be empty.
And so I mixed all that together and now have this:
- Use a system
- Keep it simple
- Change it often
- Make it appealing
- Pilot Capless
- Kaweco Lilliput
- A4 Spiral Pad, Dot Grid
- Truman Capote, Paris Review, 1957
- Vladimir Nabokov, Paris Review, 1967
- Vladimir Nabokov's Cards
