Computer. I can almost type fast enough to keep up with my thought process, well, almost, it can get pretty fast and furious at times. I never print my books, but do print the articles I write for proofing purposes. I really try to remain paperless and green whenever possible. I correct directly on the copy on the computer.
When writing articles, I print the final article and turn it over to my proofreader, my husband. For novels, I reread the previous day's writing to correct and edit as needed before starting the new day's writing.
My process has evolved over time. Originally all first drafts were done on paper, a second draft created as it was taken from paper to computer. Subsequent drafts were done from printouts or on screen.
For the last seven years or more, all drafts now originate on the computer and get edited on screen most of the time.
What has actually been the most important piece, is letting the piece breathe for a certain amount of time so it gets dumped from my brain buffer, so I can look at it again later as if not having seen it before. This helps me spot errors easier because I am now distanced from the work. For short stories this can be a week or two, for books, at least a month. Gives you fresh eyes to look for all those pesky things that sneak through when you're not looking. :P
I have a lap top, and a large desk stacked with research about what I am writing at the time. I use microsoft words.
I go in between. I'll write on paper, type on the computer, type what i've written, print things about three times, and then do it again.
some chapters will be typed up and then the next few will be hand written. i find i get much more done when i do it this way.
I write completely on computer. I set up pieces in my research/writer's notebooks in longhand. I revise either online for simple things or print copies for longer works.
If I'm editing a piece for someone, it depends on their preference whether I go with Track Comments in Word or edit in longhand.
Way back in the day I used to think writing on a typewriter was the cat's meow, but if I had to go back to that after switching to computer I'd like smash my head into the keys. I write in MSWord, it's what I'm used to. I don't print frequently, usually only once when I'm nearly done with the novel and then again when I'm done. I put all the pages in a binder and then attack it with a red pen. Then I have 2 - 3 other people read and edit it, then I go at it again with a red pen. I make all changes on the computer, read through it once more and correct/change as I go along before I consider it ready to send off to the publisher. I don't like to print for two reasons: 1) that's a lot of trees I'm killing if I do, and 2) I hardly ever thrown anything away (I'm a bit superstitious in that regard). I always write from beginning to end and follow the story in order.
Usually I start out on paper because my computer time is limited. Then I move on to the computer if I'm totally stumped on paper. Spontaneous writing, ya' know?
I prefer to write on my laptop. I don't like to print a lot. I do correct on paper. At times I will crank out a pdf of my work and then manually edit it.
I write both in Word, and publish in Blurb, which lacks tools like a decent spell check, "find", show paragraphs, etc. So editing online is difficult.
I have ordered Blurb copies of my book, which runs almost 200 pages, but it costs about $65 to get a print-on-demand copy. But paper editing is nearly always easier to do, as it doesn't miss homonyms when you visually check spelling.
I write on paper, or on the computer. I just recently purchased a laptop for the purpose of writing when I'm not at home. It all depends on where I am, and whether or not I have the computer handy. I usually correct everything on the computer, when I'm re-reading everything. If I print it out, I'll go over it and mark on pen what needs to be fixed and go back.
When I started I always wrote on paper and then transferred to the computer later. Now I write on the computer, but always make sure I back it up a number of times. I have had writing deleted because of just writing directly on the computer and losing it.
I write on my computer and correct on paper in book form, line by line.
I am probably tempting the gods by saying this, but I write almost exclusively on my laptop. I do carry a Moleskine notebook in my purse in case of emergency creative bursts or surprise sunsets, but I think my mind has learned that when I sit down at my desk my right brain gets final choice on what I'll be doing. I'll often sit down to read the Huffington Post and end up writing an article for The Witch's Voice, or I'll open Pandora and find the beginning of a poem swimming just behind my eyes, demanding attention.
I don't print, but I do frequently back up my work onto disk. I felt a responsibility to train myself to do all corrections and proofreading on computer and not waste the paper, and I am now glad. It's much easier to correct as you read than to highlight, rewrite, then go back in anyway and make the corrections.
Save often, back up often. Save paper, write responsibly.
Yes, I write on a computer and I go back and edit what I have written right there on the computer.
I write everything on my computer, be it the desktop or the laptop. I write in a word program with spell-check and grammar-help enabled because I need all the help I can get. I am a stickler when it comes to correct, I write a chapter and then read it and re-read it. Then I'll lay it down and tomorrow I'll read it again. By the time I've finished a complete book, I've probably read through it a couple hundred times.
Thank God for Microsoft. I don't know what I would do without spell check. I do write on a computer after a rough draft has been put in a tablet.
