I have only written one story on a computer, and I lost it because my thumb-drive crashed. So, no I do not print frequently. I correct on paper, but when I had a typed story, I corrected on the computer. When I am done writing for the day I do spell check, then scan through it again so I can maybe catch and phonetic errors.
My writing is from a very specific computer that I refuse to connect to the internet.
Yes I do. I save often.
I write on a computer and I also am surrounded by spiral notebooks, which I write in relentlessly. I don't print out that much but will when finished with a rough draft. I do like to start to correct on paper and then go back to the computer to finish.
- I don't know.
I often write on a computer, it's just much easier with regards to editing and keeping things saved and organised. I've always loved writing on paper though, so yes, I do usually write notes on printed work. I tend to print off chapters as I write them, then edit later.
Used to use pen and paper. Still sketch out ideas that way, but using a computer has become second nature.
I write on a pad of paper first. Let it all out. When I transcribe to computer that's when I start the edit process. I'll print it out, re-read it for several weeks with red pen in hand. When I take it back to the computer with the new re-writes, that's when the creative process happens. The story gets molded as I type. Rarely does a story come out of my head perfectly formed. Poetry, though, that usually comes out in one draft. From my head to the scrap of napkin or whatever I find to write on. I have a whole back pack filled with first draft poems all hand written, which ultimately made it into each book of poetry I've written. I've even framed a couple here and there and presented them to the girl the poem was written about. Do I print frequently? Hell yes. In the early days of writing on a computer circa 1995, and then again in 2000, I lost a lot of work cuz either the computer crashed or I hit a button that wiped it all out. Was never able to retrieve that stuff. So, yeah, I constantly back-up my work and I have at least 3 full versions of every book I'm working on in hard copy form. I go through a lot of paper and a lot of ink in a year.
I write on a computer and so far I correct on the computer. I keep everything on a memory stick. I don't print anything, except pictures and things for research.
I usually write on a computer, but I have been known to pen-write chapters on paper while on trains and buses. I don't often print draft versions because I don't like to waste paper to do corrections.
Yes, on a computer, no I don't print until I need to. I never make corrections, unless it is spelling. I have no process.
Sometimes I write on paper and sometimes I write on the computer. I usually "dump" out all of my writing that I've kept mulling around in my head for however long, then I go back and edit. If I have an instant idea, I write it on whatever is available, a 3X5 card or postit, napkin... I stop and start a lot because I have a short attention span.
I'm very tactile so I write alot with a pen and paper. I'm more prolific on the computer since I can get ideas out faster. I edit and correct on the computer. Often with poetry or a piece for marketing, I write it and that's it, no editing, no "correcting".
I love pen and paper writing, but it is inefficient when it comes to editing. I am a compulsive editor of my own work, so I need to be able to do it easily. So, I do everything on the computer. I don't print as often as I should, but I do back up to an memory card.
I do everything on the computer, and rarely print unless someone wants a copy of my work.
