I write on a computer. When I'm done I print out and do the corrections on paper.
I do all my writing on a laptop. I write using Microsoft Word and make all corrections, changes, edits within Word. I never print until I have a finished manuscript.
When I write, I always write first in journals. I sleep with a journal next to me in bed, I try and keep, if not a journal, then pen and pad, with me all the time and once all the corrections are made, then I transpose to the computer.
When I first started to write, I wrote with pencil and paper. Then I would go over the words the following day to make any corrections to the story or change the direction on where the story was going if I didn't like it. After which, I would pick up the story from there and go on. But I always tried to end at a point that would complete the scene. Now, I write with a computer and find it far more creative and productive. It is much easier to correct, change or rearrange paragraphs with a computer and in less time than it would take with pencil and paper.
Yes. Hardly ever. I correct on the screen. It may go through five or six hard edits until I'm satisfied it not only looks good but reads well. I use limited graphics.
Yes. I print and correct on paper. I check word for word and line by line.
I only use my trusty 2008 Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop, with Windows Vista Home Premium. I don't print or correct on paper. I write, eat, edit, drink, rewrite, reedit, delete, restructure, reformat, delete dead language, delete adjectives, copy edit...and, I'm hungry for more. I'm starving for every word that spikes me with brain freeze.
I started out handwriting, moved to a typewriter, then an IBM Selectric and then, thank heaven, computers came along, reducing my drafts essentially to one. Why? Because, sure you could correct words on the electric typwriters, but it's often whole sentences, paragraphs, or pages that need to be drastically revised or deleted--or added to. On a computer you can edit so easily it saves reams of paper. I no longer print until the end (if I have to) because I've taught myself the best technique for my personal use. I write a synopsis first. This is no more than a guideline to come back to so I won't get led too far astray along the way. Yes, I deviate from it while I write, but it's the spine of the story. I begin Chapter 1, not allowing any editing until I finish the chapter, other than correcting typos. Before I begin Chapter 2, I go back and edit the first chapter. I treat each chapter the same, only allowing myself to go back one chapter each time. If a new character suddenly appears, and they always seem to, I take note of their names and what chapter they showed up in, so I can go back, if needed, and insert them in an earlier scene. I do allow myself to do this, because it's easier to do then, than at the end. So on I go this way until I finish. Only then do I start from the beginning and edit the entire manuscript. I then use spellcheck. One more read through, looking for inconsistencies or those errors spellcheck can't pick up, such as "won" instead of "own." So it isn't truly a single draft, but I like to think of it that way. Today some of the NY publishers have begun to do what electromic publishers have always done, allow submissions as electronic attachments. A tremednous relief to an author.
I have found that the best method for me is to physically write, draft style, on lined paper. It forces me to go slower and really think about what I'm writing. This is a better practice when writing from the imagination. I correct minor flaws on paper, and major ones when I translate onto my word processor. Once on my computer, I polish the work and add the proper spacing and grammar.
I write first and then go to the computer. I never edit the first time around. I believe in setting a time period, writing for that period of time and then making minor edits.
I do most of my writing on the computer and print it as needed. However I do carry a pen and notepad everywhere I go, so if I am off somewhere away from the computer and an idea for a story hits me, I can jot down the idea and intention of the story to have and look back upon when I am able to sit down and write.
I write on a computer and do not print out my work on a frequent basis. I may write two paragraphs and then go back and correct on screen before moving to the next paragraph.
I jot ideas down and freely write in my journal.
Once I start the story, it is all on computer.
If I had a better printer, I would print more frequently, but since I am not working on anything serious I haven't been frequently printing in order to save ink and paper.
I write and correct on computer.
I write on a computer. I write my poetry or prose, then let it rest for a day or two. I revisit that project and make corrections, if necessary, at that time. Once the project is done I put the whole thing on a disk.
