I like my laptop. I use Word and WordPerfect. I have a notebook that I jot ideas down in, too.
I wrote on paper almost exclusively until this year. Now, I tend to favor the internet and MS Word for Mac.
I don't print much.
For poety and song lyrics I print on paper, then type on the computer. I correct on paper, as I go. If I make changes while typing, I usually go back and make the same changes on paper.
I tried writing rough drafts for blog posts on paper. After the first 3 or 4 posts, I found that producing a rough draft on paper was a waste of time. Now, once I have feel that I have developed an idea far sufficiently in my head, I start typing on the computer. Most of the time I do not complete a blog post in one sitting.
After I had my fifth and final, my husband bought me a laptop which I'd been begging for for years, convinced that if I had a portable writing tool, I could get tons done. I did. I write best at karate lessons, ballet lessons, and soccer practices--in the car or on a bench, head phones in and totally tuned out of everything else.
I don't print often--too green and cheap--but I do send a draft to my email account every time I finish writing so I know that if something happens, it's on my server. I actually lost my first novel (crashed computer), but thanks to emailing it to my husband, I had a copy online.
I usually re-read a few pages before I begin writing again to get back into the groove and edit what I had written the day/week before. But I don't do serious editing until I finish the book (that is if everything is going well).
Sometimes I draft the story before I type, to get a feel for it, if the story has been incubating a while, I may type it immediately. I proofread again after I have printed, reprinting certain pages, usually errors are small.
I do almost all of my writing on a desktop computer.
I do not print anything off on to paper until it is complete to my satisfaction. I try to preserve as many of our waning natural resources as I can and for me to print unnecessarily would be killing trees for no good reason. I believe in trying to preserve our natural resources very strongly.
I carry either a notebook or a digital voice recorder with me at all times so that if I do have a thought, I can make a note of it for later reference when I am writing.
Although I do not print often, I do SAVE often. A lesson that was learned the hard way over time.
AT PRESENT ON COMPUTER,SOMETIMESON PAPERS ALSO
I have to use a computer to write my stories. I can't read my long hand. I only print (save the trees) when I need to cut and paste scene and I have to have them in front of me.
I use the computer, a pad, napkins, tape recorder, etc..sometimes I correct using all these methods at the same time just depends on how i start.
The reviews are written on a computer; the poems and songs, in longhand. I always edit on printout.
Mostly computer and I never print. I keep my writings on the internet and I rarely correct them. Sometimes I mistype on purpose, though.
I write, type, print, revise. Repeat. Sounds like something on a shampoo bottle but that's just how I write. I am constantly revising. Improving, and analyzing.
I grew up with a computer and soon discovered I could type much faster than I could handwrite. I've been addicted to it ever since. I very rarely write out first drafts on paper; or if I do, I very soon type it into the computer to finish writing it. I also edit on the computer, though for a very final draft, I may print a copy to look at. Mostly, though, it's all on the computer.
I hand write everything first. My mind moves to fast for my typing hand but I hand write very quickly, so quickly that my handwriting is illegible to most. Someone once asked me if I write in a secret code. Once I finish a dialogue or a chapter, I scan it and type it up. This gives me a chance to proofread my writing as well.
I write on paper first, then the computer, and lastly print it out. Then check it over, and then go over the whole process again. That happens about four times, then I send out.
