I use a computer and correct on the screen. I try not to print out unless I have to.
The earliest part of the writing process is restricted to noteboks. Once the framework of the story is set it is then and only then that I turn to the computer. I print very little of what I write and all of the corrections are made to the manuscript on my computer.
I write everything on computer. The only I time I print anything out is when it is ready for a publisher.
I tend to write on my laptop, but really enjoy getting the ink pen out at times. I print every time I write something no matter how much and save on to a usb pen, that way i have three copies at anyone time in case, God forbid something goes wrong.
Then I work through the paper draft and retype it all up once each complete.
I only use my laptop, only printing to read a final draft. I once got to Chapter ten and lost the lot due to not backing up my work. Lifes a B****
everything is written on the computer at all times. No printouts happen, I revise and revise and rewrite on screen.
I always write on paper, normally ideas on scrap paper and in notebooks, then I have an A4 notebook for a first draft, then I type it up onto a computer which acts as my second draft. I find writing straight onto a computer impossible.
The word processor has been a godsend. I don't print much, I re-draft frequently. I've heard about this portable technology called paper, but I don't much care for the idea.
I try not to waste paper and correct on computer
I usually write on paper first.
Then type on a computer and correct as my brain thinks about how to improve things.
I would usually only print anything for a purpose, as in showing it to publishers.
Yes, I write most often on my laptop. I don't print very often. I correct after printing out onto paper with a pencil.
Thats my 'process'
I often start writing though on scraps of paper - backs of cigarette packs, napkins - If I feel something is awakening and needs expression, I always find a way!
I do all my writing and correcting on my computer. For some reason, I took a typing course in high school and it has been one of the most important courses in my life as it enables me to touch-type and work at a fast pace.
I've always written straight onto the screen. The rare times I try to write by longhand, my prose comes out convoluted. I always correct on the screen first. Usually, I finish a draft on the screen, print it out and then correct it again on the page. Prose on paper looks completely different from stuff on the screen. Sometimes I can spot a 'mishtake' on the printed page when I don't notice it on the screen.
I write on a computer, yes, and I will do some editing on the computer screen. When it comes to the serious editing though, I prefer to print out and scribble all over the paper before committing the changes back onto computer.
all of my writing has been on computer since i was in primary school. it makes things so much easier to change and edit than having to write and rewrite on paper. i don't print often, only if someone wants to read what i've written. i typically start with files full of ideas and then go through and organize them, from there i start into a rough draft. my mum does most of my editing for grammar, clarity and such so i'll print drafts for her to read. otherwise i do all of my corrections on the computer.
