|Do you write on a computer? Do you print frequently? Do you correct on paper? What is your process?
Write. Rewrite. Store. Revisit. Edit. Store. Edit. Eventually, add page numbers and headings and "pretend" it is finished.
I start by printing in a notebook then enter what I've written in the computer and go onto correcting mistakes from there.
Yes I use a computer to write stories. Sometimes it is easier to simply close your eyes and roll with the flow of storytelling with fingers dancing over the keyboard.
I edit on both paper and screen, depending if I am happy with the flow of words. The idea with storytelling is to only use the words necessary to tell the story. Every word has its place and meaning. If I am not happy with the flow of words I will print out the page in book format and edit from there.
I mostly write by hand on paper, then I type it up and read it. I usually print it out after typing it up an I make corrections immediately.
I currently write on computers for the most part. I also like to print on lined paper though. And I like to print out some work once and a while and read it, for two reasons. The first is that I prefer to read paper rather than screens. The second is that there will always be a certain level or unreality to the work read on the computer as opposed to work you are holding in your hands. I don't know if this is the case for others but it seems most obvious to me.
I prefer my hand-dandy lap-top but it's not always accesible (like when I leave my charger in Jacksonville and the battery is dead- or when I'm in class) When I don't have it I write on the community desktop or one of my many notebooks lying around.
Not these days.
I like to polish on days after the original input.
Mostly computer..occasionaly write long hand by the pool. I correct on the computer.
I write on my laptop. I print out each chapter, once written and roughly edited, so I can then pick up any mistakes on the printed page, as i find it's a break from the PC screen.
I ususally type everythign out on computer, though if I am at school or something I will write down a thought or point form and them put it on the computer. When I get to a certain point in my writing or I have alot down and I might be at a pause or break I prin thte thing off and will go over it, however I do just sit and edit it on computr as well.
For poetry, it usually gets scribbled all over a notepad in the middle of the night, then tidied up on the computer later on. With books, I start the ideas and skeleton on a pad too, then do all the writing on the computer. With articles, I just sit and type... I used to use a manual typewriter before I got my first computer. I don't print out my work very often. I usually order a POP printed copy of a book for myself to double-check on typos before releasing it publicly though. There are sometimes small boo boos that I miss when sitting at the desk.
Sometimes computer, often by hand on paper.
Yes I do print out and correct on paper. Lately I have been correcting on the computer in another colour, to save paper.
Yes, I write on a computer and I generally read my drafts on the computer. Printing massive pages out is an expensive business, but if I have finished a number of drafts and I'm reasonably happy with the manuscript then I would print it out, go somewhere quiet and edit.
I write on my laptop. We have become very close and personal friends.
Write. Re-write. Edit. Complete draft and commit to pdf all on computer.
Re-write and re-draft. Correct plot hiccups and check dialogue.
After second draft. Print out if needed but in the main use the computer to adject re-write and re-edit.
Make it tighter. Cut out the superlatives. Keep it visual. Chop out the clever bits. Make it bright and pithy.
