Writing tools have an emotional tone.
When you write on a computer, the words appear on the screen; the emotional tone depends on the application you use to get them there.
Word processors especially an emotional tone. If you've been writing long enough, you may remember WordStar, and WordPerfect 5.1 for DOS. Ah, memories. For me, these programs' emotional tone was one of relaxation, inspired excitement, and creativity.
In 2011, my most-used word processor is MS Word, on the Mac. The tone? Briskly business.
When I need relaxation and inspired creativity, I write with a fountain pen, using J Herbin inks.
My favorite ink is Violette Pensee. Purple says creativity to me, so do turquoise inks. Blue inks are strictly for business.
