I have been Tablet-less for most of a week now and it is apparent to me how integrated the Tablet had become in my thought process while writing articles. There is not another computing appliance that stimulates the creative process like the Tablet PC. Sketching out an idea until it becomes a full-fledged project is just so rewarding. You can sit down at a keyboard and do the same thing but it takes much longer and I am convinced thought trains are not followed because they are lost in the cumbersome method of the tool. But with pen in hand the idea remains the main focus with no distractions, just a free flowing interaction with the Tablet. This is what I miss the most.
