Please disregard the word “nonfiction” above. I can’t imagine writing by hand. Period. Ok, so I like writing my lists by hand. I like the feel of my favorite pen, the sound of the nib scratching on paper… but anything else? No way. I love backspace, delete, cut, copy and paste and no red ink.

Then there is auto correct. Yes, sometimes it is a real pain, but it is also a time saver. I don’t have to waste time with a dictionary. I love the ability to search my files for a story and find it as opposed to sifting through notebooks and reams of paper, risking the dreaded paper cut to come up empty-handed.

Which do you prefer?

  1. i like both and have mood swings and become needy when deprived of one or the other. But computer and gadgets have made spell checks easier and also word counts. if i were travelling then notebook and pen definitely, not really keen on lugging a lap top around. i have pieces of paper tucked in bags, coat pocket, jeans….when a thought strikes i need to write it down, then when i had a mobile phone became easier to collect those thoughts in one place. so i think i want the best of both worlds.

  2. I use to write by hand all the time, but now my hand gets tired very quickly. Crazy! Just got so used to typing instead, but I do still like to scribble thoughts in my notebook. I will say though that being on the computer or my phone is much neater than my handwriting! LOL!

  3. Interesting?? Which do I prefer? I prefer writing with pen and ink!! But which do I use the most – laptop!! This has changed over the last year. I think pen and ink is the best and purest way and wish it was as easy as the laptop!! I like to write about writing with pen and ink but not so much about on computer. For me it seems that lines flow faster and easier on the laptop. I’m like Gina on this issue. I like both!
    Great Post!

    • I love reading each response. Yours is priceless. I don’t think any of us would wax poetic about a laptop… but a quill and fine paper?

      My Quill — Lord Byron
      Oh! Nature’s noblest gift—my grey goose-quill!
      Slave of my thoughts, obedient to my will,
      Torn from thy parent bird to form a pen,
      That mighty instrument of little men!

      I have always enjoyed the last line. 😊💕💕💕
