Writing does not require paraphernalia

Reading a biography of the Yeats sisters, who struggled on in a man’s world, a comment about Lolly Yeats caught my attention, serving as a reminder of something incredibly simple:

To her, writing did not require paraphernalia. She could do it anywhere, anytime. All she needed was a pen and paper. 

Comparing it to most creative pursuits, writing is labour rather than materials intensive.  Sometimes we forget this.

Writing. You can, and must, do it anywhere.
