I write the rough draft in a notebook. When I am finished than I input it into the computer and revise it as I go.
My pen speaks. I keep a hundred of them around and tablets in stacks. My first edit is usually the process of transferring ink to glass. I hard copy everything, unable to trust the machine because, sometimes, the glass is dead.
When I first started I wrote on paper but my handwriting is so horrible even I couldn't read it! My parents bought me a Royal electric type writer when I was in junior high school and I would start stories with pen and paper in a notebook then transcribe them with the typewriter. I moved from doing that to writing directly with the type writer (sometimes on good old onion skin w/ carbon paper....anyone else out there remeber those days or is it just me?) I moved on to a word processor and finally the computer which has allowed me to go paperless. I no longer print anything out I do all of my editing and correcting directly on the computer. It saves a lot of time and aggravation. Though I have to admit the very first time I held my novel "Dream Weaver" in my hands was an experience I'll never forget! It was spiritual. It had been so incredibly long since I'd printed out anything I'd written that it was almost surreal to hold an actual BOOK with my name on it as the author. Pretty cool.
Yes, I write on a computer. I don't print what I've written so far because it wastes a lot of paper and ink, unless I have to. I don't correct on paper, unless I've printed out a segment of what I've written that I need to take somewhere that I can't use a computer. After I make any corrections, I take it back to my computer and make those corrections on it.
I generally carry a steno pad with me for general ideas, but I write almost exclusively on the laptop. I never print anything until it's edited and ready to either be sent to a publisher or to have someone proof-read it. I correct everything on the word-processor. It saves on ink, paper, and stress level. If I correct and edit on the processor then it's done and I don't have to try to find references from the paper on the screen.
If I have a thought that I think is good or interesting, I generally save it on wordpad then sort of write around it. I build the story around what the thought it. That central thought or sentence generally stays somewhere in the story.
Pen to paper, edit, paper to computer, edit, edit, edit.
i write on a computer, and sometimes i print, but only for revision and editing's sake. usually i correct on the computer, but sometimes i feel the need to do it with a pen.
I write on a computer and seldom print before I have written many pages. My first corrections are done on the computer, but later changes and corrections are made after I read hard copy.
I write on a computer and print every 50 pages or so. I find editing on paper is more helpful then on the computer.
Process is write, rewrite, read what is written, rewrite, print out, throw away, begin again.
I do but I make sure I have a hard copy soon after or keep a backup copy on a flash disk. I prefer to edit the old fashioned way.
I take notes and scribble on paper, write on a computer, take more notes and subtract or add to whatever is happening on the computer screen of a given draft.
I couldn't (and seldom ever did) write without a computer. I'm a compulsive editor, and re-typing discouraged me so much I seldom finished anything but term papers. I use both hard copy and the screen for editing. Most of the time, I edit more or less as I go, then revise after large chunks have been completed, or after the entire piece is finished. My latest novel was completely rewritten to change the point of view long after it was first completed. It will be available from Amazon, ebooksonthe.net, and other places the first of March. Title: Maiden Run.
I do everything on computer now. I've probably saved several trees by now.
I do all my creative writing on a computer. I find it is an amazing tool as one can correct your work so easily, and save modifications as a separate file. Also the copy/paste function is a godsend. I have so many iterations I lose count.
The computer is a fabulous tool for what I do, but I find I catch mistakes better off a print than reading the work on the monior screen. When I used to work at mechanical design on computers, it was the same. I have not found an explanation yet.
