I;ve tried them all (well, most of them) and keep coming back to a mouse. It needs to be
a responsive, hand-sized one though. I've yet to find anything better than the standard
Microsoft Optical Mouse (it works fine on a Mac too). And most wireless mice are a
solution that lacks a problem.
You don't have to write songs. The world doesn't want you to write songs. It would probably prefer it if you didn't. So write songs if you want to. Otherwise, dont. Go fishing instead.
