|Do you write on a computer? Do you print frequently? Do you correct on paper? What is your process?
I usually write on a computer, print drafts and correct them in pencil, then go back to the computer. But sometimes when an idea comes to me I write on whatever I can find.
Serious work is written in long hand on legal and then edited when transposed to the word processor. I then print and hope for the best.
I used to write drafts in longhand. At last, I had to make myself to write on a computer. Much faster, much better. And transcription? A waste of time. Only use it for technical writing--as a backup.
I predominately write on the computer. If I feel I need to rest my eyes I will jot stories on notebook paper and type them later. I don't print until I am ready for a critique. I always recycle my paper. I generally will correct any works on the computer.
The process is to print only when I am sure I have polished a story as much as I can. Then I get the critique and make corrections on the computer. I recycle the paper by printing either the same story with corrections or a different story ready for critiquing.
I use a computer only. Even though my typing skills are lacking, it's neater and easier for me to read than my own handwriting. I use paper for drawing.
I have started ideas with pad and pen (I don't have a working laptop so handwrite at group), but always end up at the PC. I think differently at the keyboard. I only print my own stuff if I'm having a really hard time with editing or revising a specific scene or chapter, and then I do the edits with a pencil (not pen), sitting in my favorite chair. Usually with a glass of wine. And ruffles chips and ranch dip.
I do have a printed copy of my novels; but they are very old and don't have any of the latest changes. I printed them out of paranoia when my computer crashed for the second time. I'm very bad at remembering to back up my latest changes.
i start of on a peace of paper and when i think its right ill write it on the computer and print it or just save it
I do go straight to computer and write all of it as it comes until I get jumbled then I print and shuffle papers around the floor moving chapters into the correct space. Once I have it all together I red pen mark all errors and correct them into the computer. All this before I have an editor look at it.
write on the computer.
I mainly write it out in pencial first and if it becomes a good story ill use a computer...i have friends correct my papers because i tend not to get mist of my errors
I write on a computer. I do not print frequently. I have been told to revise using a printed copy. I feel I am wasting paper, because I always have so many changes. I usually just make my corrections on the computer, let it set a few days or a week, then read through it, making more corrections or revisions. The only time I use paper is if I am in the car (passenger of course) and have an idea that I don't want to forget. Then I will jot it in a notebook or just a paper napkin--whatever is available.
I write on a computer and print as needed. I do correct on paper. My process is a bit hapahazard; I read through my work continually
Computer predominantly although initial outline, characterisation etc on bits of paper.
I type everything. The blog is all on the web and I print a few times to edit and correct for the magazine.
