|Do you write on a computer? Do you print frequently? Do you correct on paper? What is your process?
I write everything on a computer, and I usually just edit right from the computer page. I like to print the novel when it's complete and been through one or two revisions and then mark it up with any final changes.
I used a computer to write. I dont usually print off any pages, I just start the chapter over and read what I've written down. I correct that way. Also reading outloud tends to help with conversation flow and rhythm.
I do all of the above: write on computer, print/revise on paper.
I write on the computer. I spell check there and everything is saved on my desktop.
I very seldom print out anything.
I rough out my stories on legal pads and then type them into the computer. I proof read the Word document at least once, but usually miss a lot by reading off the screen. I really donít like computers. I catch most of my mistakes and make changes after I print out the manuscript. My wife and sister like to read from paper, too. The on-line workshop is, of course, all computer work. After I print out the suggestions I receive, I correct the Word document and print the MS again and get ready for the final edits.
Notes in my head. Outlines (scant) on paper. Rough draft on computer. Edits are done on hard copy and then transferred.
I used to write longhand and let my wife transfer it to the computer. But, when she had back surgery I had to do it myself and got into the habit of writing everything on the computer. I still carry a notebook and pen with me whenever I can, because you never know when an idea might hit.
I edit as I go, so corrections are made on the fly. And before I start every writing day, I go over and edit the previous day's work.
I rather writing on paper but don't have a particular reason to do it. When I write on the computer I don't print it just save it in a pendrive in case something happens. I usually start writing on paper and continue in my computer so I can upload it anywhere if I want to.
I generally write on the computer. I have been known to make notes on the backs of restaurant place mats. I try to print each chapter. I need to have a hard copy when editing. I write all over them.
I spend most of my writing time writing. When I come back the next day, I reread and make some corrections. I print only at the end of a chapter. Chapters go into a file. I don't copy edit them until the manuscript is complete.
Yep. For the longest time, I wrote on WordPerfect because I liked the program better and I'm not a big fan of Microsoft. But the sad truth is that Word is the standard, and if I want to be able to email my manuscript to a publisher or to a website for a review, it needs to be in Word format.
I don't print until I feel the work is as complete as it can be. I edit on the computer simply because it is far easier.
Write on computer - manual writing too slow for my thoughts! Never print. Re-read mostly once only. If I am writing and it's not flowing easily I hit the "back erase" key and sit till the sentence starts properly and then it usually flows freely again. If I'm struggling it's because the words are not reflecting "me" properly.
When it comes to writing match previews and match reports I write on the computer. This is mostly a matter of research. I find www.bbc.co.uk and www.scotprem.com very useful sites and the sites of clubs themselves can also prove invaluable. When it comes to poetry, I write on paper first and edit on paper, only putting things on the computer when Iíve written the same draft out twice and can find nothing I want to improve on: this is usually about the tenth draft of a poem.
I always write on a computer or my PDA.
I never print.
I never correct on paper.
My process is to obtain the assignment, make mental goals, let the assignment details fester for about 12 hours, write without editing all the way through, and then edit. I never struggle with writers block this way!
I write on a computer, although I write ideas, dialogue and random doodles on paper all the time. I only print something when a draft is finished and then correct on paper. I wrote an entire 115 page screenplay by hand when I went travelling, and I thought my wrist was going to snap off, I have no idea how people long-hand everything. (The great writers of centuries gone by are spinning in their graves right now.)
I write on computer, and submit to my editors and beta readers by email. When I get their changes back, I print out the manuscript and go line by line through their changes and suggestions, making notes with a colored pen. Finally, I type it all back in to incorporate the feedback that I choose to accept.
